We’re hanging on to these last precious days of summer but can’t resist the urge to start fall fragrance shopping. Here a trio of scent trends to try if you’re looking for the new and note-worthy.
TREND: THE DARK ROSE
Our infatuation with dark magic- and fantasy-inspired television shows and movies such as Witches of East End, Constantine and Dracula Untold continues. What better symbol to portray seduction, drama, mysticism and ever-lasting love, which now includes the reincarnate, than the rose?

Key notes: Rose, patchouli, white flowers, black and white cedar, vanilla. Emotional character: Intense.
