I’m a fragrance flirt. And I try all the stuff so you don’t have to 🙂 Here are my most worn fragrances of fall 2011. And I’m still a flirt. You see that I narrowed it down to 12 😉
12 – Natori EDP – A floral that makes me feel like a silent film star. Santa better bring me some of this.
11 – DSH Perfumes Pandora – A thick “vintage” style perfume that I can’t get enough of. It’s like it is bespoke for me. Full review.
10 – Ineke Floral Curiousities Angel’s Trumpet – I wore this one in early fall when it was still sunny and less depressing than it is now in the Seattle area. This clean floral was easy to wear. Full review.
9 – Memo Shams – I think this may be my new favorite oud. It’s a spicy oud, great projection and wear. I need a full-size bottle.
8 – Juliette Has a Gun Midnight Oud – An easy to wear rose oud that does well in cooler weather. Full review.
7 – Ormonde Jayne Ta’if – A jammy rose that wears well with layers and layers of fall fashions.
6 – Mugler Le Goût Womanity – I’m enjoying this “fixed” version of Womanity. It’s thicker, denser, more like a parfum. It’s breadier and has more salt and spice. It wears wonderfully on me.
5 – Bvlgari Omnia – I reach for this comforting chai and white chocolate perfume every fall. Full review.
4 – Costume National Homme – My comforting chai and peach pie. I love this stuff. Full review.
3 – By Kilian Back to Black – For some reason I was craving this sweet stuff this fall. It wears as honey and pipe tobacco but I like it. It’s warm and sweet.
2 – Tom Ford Private Blend Tobacco Vanille – Once again, another pipe tobacco, a bit more literal and with Christmas cookies. Full review.
1 – Prada Candy – I’ve worn this very frequently this fall. It was launched at the right time. I can’t get enough of this caramel incense. Full review.
Which fragrances did you reach for the most during fall 2011?

😉 Love all of your choices, wish Prada Candy had translated in that way with my chemistry!,
It seems like benzoin is the hot “new” thing. I’ve sniffed it in 3 recent launches. Luckily, benzoin <3s me but it can be tricky on some people.
Hm…let’s think about this:
DSH Pandora (I need to order some next week since I finished my decant, oops!), Kate Walsh Boyfriend, Opus Oils Flapper, Bond No.9 New Haarlem (which I always wear as soon as the temps drop below 50F), Tallulah Jane Gotham and Hope, and Amouage Gold Woman! 😀

Those are all great. I’m trying to keep up with the ones that I’m wearing in the winter. Boyfriend will make that list fo sho. And probably Opus Oils Heavy Sugar. And Amouage Gold Woman if I had it. I tried it at the Perfume House last week and fell in love with it.
Cool list! I’ve always been drooling for Omnia but never got a chance to get a full bottle. You’ve also got me intrigued @ Pandora. It must be special if you love it so much!
My most worn for Fall:
L’Aromatica Madrone: Northern California Autumn and the sweet spicy papery bark of the Madrone, a tree you see here in the Norcal foothills. (L’Aromatica is an indie perfumery in San Fran)
Alkemia Perfumes Les Mysteres: Smells like Comme des Garçons Incense Avignon + Dyptique Philosykos. Incredible!
Both unknown indies but incredible discoveries. I guess I was rooting for the underdogs this fall. 😉

Pandora isn’t one for everyone. Muse in Wooden Shoes wrote a great review about her experience. BUT, it wears so wonderfully on me. Perfect for me. But, I like that sweet style that DSH does so well.
I’m intrigued by your two. I have experience with L’Aromatica because it is sold at a boutique here in Seattle called Sweet Anthem. Now Alkemia is an entirely new line to me. Thanks for introducing me!
I’ve had a bottle of Omnia for a couple of years, and I admit I haven’t tried it in awhile- but all I remember about it is that it’s sandalwood-y. Need to give it another go if you say chai and white chocolate, shoot.
Most used scents around here would be Prada Candy, Guerlain Iris Ganache, L’Heure Bleue of course, Aroma M Geisha Amber Rouge, Aftelier Oud Luban, Mona di Orio Oud, vintage Caron Tabac Blonde. Now that it’s freezing cold and there’s snow on the ground, it’s time to break out the Le Labo Oud 27! I’m psyched.

Omnia is a really light scent but it’s sweet chai on me or at least what part of the perfume I pick up on.
Great ‘fumes for fall.
It snowed?! It is Dec. It’s cold here and will probably be 40 degrees until May so I’m going to be sick of my winter perfumes in a few months. It seems like I’m already craving tons of amber and spice. Aroma M Amber Rouge will most likely make that “winter perfume” list.
Fragrances I really want now:
– Taste of Fragrance Womanity (I love the original!)
– Omnia original
My Fall fragrances:
– With Love Hilary Duff
I recently tried Boyfriend by Kate Walsh and I love it . Now I need to find a Prada Candy store bottle and smell the stuff. 😛
Thank you Victoria for your fall list!

If you like the original Womanity, I think you’ll love the Taste of, especially for winter!
With Love by Hilary Duff is one of those underrated fragrances. It’s a nice warm scent.
I hope you try Prada Candy soon. Let me know what you think!
I really do think Candy was launched at the perfect time.
I’m not sure what I wore the most this year. Probably, old favorites still won out, but I have worn a lot of SSS and Ormonde Jayne in the latter half of the year.
I often think that if Candy was launched in lets say spring, that it wouldn’t be as popular. But, it was spring for half of the world 😉
SSS is new to me and I’m loving the house. I have a feeling that a few will get lots of wear in ’12.
[…] Candy – You saw this in my “Most Worn in Fall ’11″ list and here it is again on my winter list. I am still not tired of this sweet benzoin. […]
