The days of summer are winding down. That means it’s time to trade in your airy, summery fragrance for a fall scent with a little more edge. Here are our top picks for the season of romance and sophistication.

Modern and spirited, Coco Mademoiselle is the 21st century interpretation of Chanel’s popular Coco fragrance. The elegant blend of orange, bergamot, and jasmine is laced with deeper notes of patchouli and roots of vetiver. Why we love it: it reflects Coco Chanel’s love of the pure and simple.

THE BEAT by Burberry
Burberry’s newest fragrance is vibrant and feminine, a floral scent with smoky undertones of musk and wood. Creative Director Christopher Bailey calls the fragrance a must-have fashion accessory for the woman that is “feminine, effortlessly cool and has a sense of mystery.”

ROMANCE by Ralph Lauren
The scent is rich and alluring with a crisp, timeless quality that’s undeniably Ralph Lauren. Infused with tangerine, chamomile and freesia, as well as ginger, violet and musk, the fragrance was designed to capture the essence of love. Warm and romantic, it’s a fabulous fit for fall.

EUPHORIA by Calvin Klein
Nobody does drama like Calvin Klein. Euphoria combines unconventional fruits and florals with seductive, earthy notes. Fragrance highlights include black orchid, liquid amber, mahogany, and lotus blossom. It’s exotic without being overpowering, and the bottle is especially sleek.
