6 New Season Scents Our Fragrance Buyer Really Rates

New Autumn Fragrances | Space NK
We often think of September as the beginning of a new season, but temperatures this week aren’t particularly autumnal. So, rather than dishing out six cosy perfumes that give you all the autumn feels, I’ve chosen the transitional scents that work for both the balmy, late summer days and the chillier, grey ones.

As the fragrance buyer for Space NK, I’m always searching for the latest, most innovative scents, as well as the all-time favourites. My autumn fragrance edit includes the new-in scent from Tom Ford, Cat Deeley’s much-loved fragrance and a Sol de Janeiro number for anyone on TikTok. Keep reading to find out which new fragrances made the cut…

Best New Fragrances For Autumn 2023


Tom Ford

Café Rose, € 122,00

I wanted to kick off my best new fragrances roundup with Tom Ford’s latest offering, Café Rose, because Tom Ford never launches new perfumes and I am very excited about this one. It’s warm, a little bit spicy, and seriously elegant. There are sweet coffee notes blended with sandalwood and a dash of frankincense. It’s the kind of scent that screams quiet luxury to me. Plus, the bottle is the epitome of chic.


Sol de Janeiro

Limited Edition After Hours Perfume Mist, N/A

Sol de Janeiro fragrance mists need no introduction from me, especially if you’re on TikTok. I feel like the latest addition has a more grown-up vibe with jasmine and amber woods. It’s much warmer than Sol de Janeiro’s fruitier, floral scents and definitely worth a trip into your nearest Space NK store for a sniff. I wouldn’t be surprised if this limited edition fragrance becomes a permanent fixture.



E11even Fragrance Oil, € 92,00

Cat Deeley’s e11even fragrance (pronounced eleven) is truly something special. Together with A-list makeup artist Amanda Grossman, Cat has created a stunning scent made with natural ingredients and essential oils that is easy to wear and has the power to minimise stress levels. When you first apply the rollerball, you’re hit with floral notes of geranium and rose, but as the scent dries you catch the soothing amber and patchouli blend.


Acqua Di Parma

Zafferano Eau De Parfum, € 288,00

Acqua di Parma rarely launches a new fragrance, but when the luxury Italian brand does, it does it properly. Zafferano Eau de Parfum is an ode to saffron. The spice is wrapped up in a blend of jasmine sambac, orange blossom and vanilla and tonka bean with a flash of zesty bergamot and coriander seeds. It is a feast for your senses and one of my favourite new fragrances for an evening out.


Ellis Brooklyn

Florist Eau De Parfum, € 37,00

The name spells it out, but this is definitely one for the floral fans. I love the way Ellis Brookyn’s founder, Bee Shapiro takes classic notes and gives them a fresh, modern twist. There’s a full garden of blooms in this fragrance, including lily of the valley, jasmine sambac, tuberose petals and golden gardenia, yet the addition of sandalwood, cedarwood and ambrox gives this scent a very cool, understated edge. I also fully appreciate the unintentional Barbie-core packaging. Bravo, Bee!



L'Eau Papier Eau de Toilette, € 109,25

I know this isn’t new, but I’m still not over Diptyque L’Eau Papier – it has the makings of a modern classic, in my opinion. From the warm, reassuring white masks to the delicate rice steam and uplifting mimosa notes, this perfume feels comfortable yet elegant. It’s probably very obvious, but I genuinely adore this fragrance.
