It’s October and it’s time to put together my perfume picks for Autumn 2014. I’ve put together my recommendations for fragrances that should get you through the many activities of my favorite season.
These are the scents that remind me of fall harvest as well as those that pair well with a pleasant, sunny autumn Sunday outdoors.
Byredo Pulp EDP – Pulp is a fruity fragrance that I’ve always enjoyed. It’s like overripe fruits, on the verge of being rotten… Continue reading
