Fall doesn't always mean going for warmer fragrances. Consider these energetic, bright scents a pick-me-up when the days turn shorter.
1. Gucci Premiere ($63-$87) opens with a heady burst of bergamot. White flowers and musk are at the heart of the scent, with hints of smoky leather — a nod to Gucci's heritage — providing a rich base.
2. Donna Karan's latest fragrance, Woman ($85), feels clean and sophisticated thanks to orange flower, Haitian vetiver, and sandalwood.
3. Dolce & Gabbana Pour Femme ($77) is a reincarnation of the original scent. Top notes of tangerine lead into jasmine before finishing off with marshmallow and sandalwood.
4. Nicole Richie took notes from her mother for her first scent, Nicole ($55-69). The vanilla, amber, and cashmere scents she grew up with are prominent, but the blackberry and papyrus additions make it modern — and surprisingly pleasant for a celebrity endeavor.
