It’s a nice feeling, drifting into autumn… The nights are getting longer, darker and crisper. The thought of being blanketed in warm sweaters and drinking spirits with close friends as compensation. After a long hot summer I’m ready for the deeper, earthy, musky scents of the season – the woody scents that warm on your skin and linger through your day and beautiful fireside evenings.
As we move into Fall, there is a natural shift towards fragrances that evoke a sense of warmth and comfort. We see light summer floral scents giving way to darker, more intense use of rich rose and red berries, as well as a hint of spirit-inspired notes that give a seductive character to fragrances. As the season’s change, it’s time to think about reviving your fragrance wardrobe with a new signature scent.
The fragrance trend report for Fall-Winter 2014/15 offers an insight into the world of fine fragrance. The Sage Lifestyle approaches with a unique interpretation of these Fall trends in four distinct fragrance stories, presented to you in our Fall 2014 Fragrance Guide.
Return of the Rose: Offering a dark and dramatic interpretation of the rose, which appears for its third season, this rich, velvety fragrance, Garnet fragrance oil by Sage – a fragrance that is as deeply sensual as the smoldering red hue of the stone for which it was named, melds with and transforms the wearer’s body heat in an enigmatic alchemy. This tribute to the stone of love begins with a luscious and seductive watermelon top note. Garnet’s full, inviting middle note accord of gardenia and Moroccan red rose absolute languidly lies on a sumptuous bed for amber, vanilla and musk that both radiates and beckons. Garnet, coupled with intense notes of Amethyst in the Garnet and Amethyst blend by Sage – Our rendition of a bohemian jetsetter fuses sensual florals for pure fragrance perfection. Moroccan Red Rose and Blackberry blended with sweet Lilac, Gardenia and African violet.
Scents of Spirits: The smoky aromas of Onyx fragrance oil by Sage – a fragrance that is as darkly opulent as the stone for which it was named, begins with a bewitching top note accord of black coconut, tobacco and oakmoss. Its rich and enveloping base note accord of vanilla, amber and sheer musk caresses the skin like sweet dew born of nocturnal, tropical air. A perfume of almost primeval intensity, Onyx evokes nature’s beauty in its darkest forms; a jungle’s depths, volcanic heat and velvety night skies. Luxe and exotic, Onyx and Peridot fragrance oil blend by Sage is for the perfumista who has it all. A fusion of Vanilla Nectar and Dark Coconut blended with crisp Lime, Fig and soft Musk add complexity and a sophisticated edge – a sheer bliss in a bottle.
Concentrated Creations: An opulent take on earthy fragrances, the darker and spicier compositions feature fig and amber. Amber fragrance oil by Sage (Birthstone for October) – a fragrance of singular power and depth, is inspired by those golden, light-filled stones formed from the resin of ancient trees. Its succulent blood orange top note streams like the sun’s rays through notes of labdanum, Tunisian Amber and musk. Legend states that Amber was used by sorcerers and magicians to promote strength, healing and protection. This fragrance is itself an emboldening yet profoundly calming talisman. Peridot Revival fragrance oil by Sage is an exotic, sexy fig fragrance that starts with a classic, grassy fig note set like a jewel amongst notes of warmth and depth. The slightest hint of sparkling blood orange plays off the fruity qualities of the fig, and draws deeper into the richness of the base note accord on which this fragrance lives. Deep ambers mingle with variety of fresh musk notes to create a scent that wears close to the body, becoming part of you. A subtle touch of oak moss and essential vanilla anchor Peridot to the skin, and to the memory of the one who wears it.
Futuristic Folklore: An eclectic, warm, rich and spicy fragrance, inspired by a vibrant, multicultural world. Topaz fragrance oil by Sage (Birthstone for November). In Sanskrit, the word topaz means “fire”. Inspired by those vibrant, sunset-hued jewels that were a favorite of Russia’s Czarinas, this deeply warm and spicy fragrance begins with an incendiary, inviting top note accord of mango, papaya and rosewood. These ignite a sumptuous, alluring fusion of five vanillas from around the world with white opium, amber, Arabian sandalwood, oakmoss and smoky musk. A truly celebratory fragrance, Topaz adorns the wearer much like its namesake stone once graced noble beauties with dazzling, regal splendor. Amber and Carnelian fragrance oil blend by Sage – Chic and captivating you can’t help be enamored by rich musk with Tunisian Amber and a hint of Blood Orange blended with Tangerine, Mandarin and Papaya. An effortless scent that flourishes from day to night.
