Fall is fully here, so we’re ready to put away our soft floral and sweet perfumes. Autumn is altogether a calmer and cooler time, and so we want a warm, cozy scent to match our mood.
And while you may already have your tried and true perfume, consider spicing up your signature fragrance with something woodsy, earthy, and musky. Nothing beats a beauty splurge, and right now is the perfect time to experiment with something new in celebration of the fall season.

Without further adieu, here are a few woody, earthy, and warm scents to add to your vanity.
1. Nirvana Bourbon
This Elizabeth and James perfume is comprised only of three notes: vanilla bourbon, tuberose, and oak. It smells like a warm evening by the fire with an Old Fashioned cocktail. What more could you ask for?
Elizabeth and James | $28
It smells sharp and spicy, but once it settles down Spicebomb becomes woodsier and even slightly creamy. It’s a fabulous unisex scent.
Viktor & Rolf | $55
3. The Bewitching Yasmine Eau de Parfum
This uniquely rich and robust scent is a glorious combination of jasmine, incense, and oud notes. Like the name suggests, it’s truly bewitching. This is musky luxury at its finest. And can we talk about that bottle? It will be the centerpiece of your vanity table.
Penhaligon's | $250
4. Tobacco Vanille
This perfume fuses tonka bean, vanilla, cocoa, dry fruit accords, and sweet wood sap for a deep, rich scent that is sure to turn heads.
Tom Ford | $230
5. Jasmin Et Cigarette
This scent was actually inspired by the old movie studio days and the women who ruled the silver screen back then. It’s seductive and elusive and will make you want to watch your favorite black and white film.
Etat Libre d'Orange | $52
6. Tobacco Nuit
This perfume has a warmer, smokier wood aroma. It’s understatedly seductive and would be equally as intoxicating on a man or woman.
Atelier Cologne | $130
7. White Sandalwood
This fragrance is a true original, thanks to its combination of White Indian sandalwood, creamy almond and white musk. And it was actually inspired by Mary Delany, an 18th Century British artist.

Amazingreen is buzzy and bright and definitely fresher than the other perfumes on this list; but it’s still musky and woodsy, like a crisp fall morning.
Comme des Garcons | $75
