Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Giveaway

I hope that everyone had a great weekend We have a great giveaway today thanks to Tara. She would like to give away a full bottle of Chanel Coco Mademoiselle EDP, 50ml. It’s a tester bottle, but the perfume is fresh. Tara can send her package anywhere in the USA or Europe.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank our entire Bois de Jasmin community for your generosity and kindness, whether it means giveaways like this, advice or comments that you share. You’re the best!

We are not responsible for custom duties, leaks or damage during transit or for lost packages.

To participate, please answer these questions. I will randomly draw one winner.

1.  Tara would like to find a good perfume for the autumn-winter season, “something that feels warm, comforting, but not overly sweet. I don’t like gourmands, vanillas or anything that smells of pastries. Spices and woods are more than welcome.”
2. May I contact you via email to notify you of your win and share your email with Tara?

The contest is now closed. The winner is Maxima. Congratulations! I will contact the winner by email. Thank you everyone for your suggestions to Tara.



  • Hollis: Autumn means amber for me, so may I suggest Halston Woman Amber? It’s fairly linear, and the spiciness bubbles up throughout the day. Long-lasting but not overpowering at all!
    My other suggestion is Chanel’s Boise des Iles. Rich and woody (admittedly a tiny bit of sweetness), but it feels like a cashmere blanket – envelops you in warmth and comfort. One of my favorites!

    Victoria, you may certainly contact me via email. October 14, 2019 at 7:30am

    • April: Hello!
      For fall I really like Jo Malone’s “Wood Sage and Sea Salt.” Beautifully different and I always get compliments when I wear it!
      Of course you may contact me! October 14, 2019 at 11:22am

    • Marina: For Autumn, I recommend Atelier Cologne’s Bergamot Soleil or Cédrat Enivrant. Crisp yet warm. Both are colognes absolut. And Guerlain’s Mitsuko is nonpareil an all time favorite for the season into winter.
      Yes, you may contact me. October 14, 2019 at 6:52pm

  • Daniela Krneta: 1. Hermès Eau des Merveilles, lovely warm woody. It is an embodiment of autumn!
    2. Yes, please October 14, 2019 at 7:38am

  • Sandra: How about some older EL like Aliage or QuiProQuo by Gres

    Thanks for your generosity!
    Yes you can contact me October 14, 2019 at 9:09am

  • Matty: I find amber perfumes comforting. I like Prada Amber.
    Yes you may contact me X October 14, 2019 at 9:12am

  • Filomena: I would say Dyptique’s Tam Deo or Tom Ford’s original formula of Oud Wood (not the intense). Don’t enter me into the draw as years ago I wore Coco Mademoiselle almost as a signature scent. There is still some in my bottle but I can’t even remember the last time I wore it. October 14, 2019 at 9:16am

  • Alica: I would recommend Feminite du Bois by Serge Lutens. Another one on cheaper price end is Jil Sander Simply Elixir. Sure you can contact me, thank you October 14, 2019 at 9:19am

  • Madelyn E: Hi Victoria ,
    Thank you Tara . I would recommend Dolce Vita Dior , Chanel No. 22 and Hermès Eau des Merveilles edt and 24 Rue Faubourg .
    They are warm , enveloping and fit her description . I can certainly be contacted by email . Thank you Victoria .. October 14, 2019 at 9:34am

    • Katie: Hi. I would love to recommend one of my favourite French perfume houses…Oriza Legrand and I particularly like Reve d’Ossian which is a spicy incense with a fresh aldehyde and bergamot opening or Chypre Mousse which is their classic ferny woody mossy very unusual but very beautiful Chypre. I’ve had the most compliments EVER from wearing this.
      You can contact me by email. October 14, 2019 at 10:30am

  • Dorothy Van Daele: I like Alaia in the autumn. It develops beautifully over a few hours and lingers on clothing in a good way.

    Don’t enter me in draw, thanks. October 14, 2019 at 9:39am

  • Stacey Walls: What about an incense perfume? I always associate those with fall/winter. A great one is CdG Kyoto or by Kilian Incense Oud if you like a little oud in your fragrance.

    You can contact me by email. Thank you! October 14, 2019 at 10:19am

  • Lori Casimiro: Thank you for your generosity! I suggest Five O’Clock Au Gingembre by Serge Lutens. I love to wear this in the Fall and Winter. Yes, you may contact me via email. October 14, 2019 at 10:44am

    • CristinaM: 1. Ambre des marveilles
      2. Yes you May contact me!!
      Thanks for your kindness October 15, 2019 at 2:06pm

  • Roxann: One of my favorites for the cooler seasons is Bois Farine by L’Artisan. Yes you can share my e mail with Tara. Thank you Tara! October 14, 2019 at 11:05am

  • Stacey Shinkel: I recommend Hiram Green Slowdive.

    The website describes it as:

    Slowdive is a warm tobacco-themed fragrance that captures the mood of those languid afternoons when the sweetness of the Indian summer air is almost palpable. The heady scent of summer flowers and the humming of bees surround you as you flee the high summer sun.

    The fragrance opens with fresh and flowery top notes of neroli and orange flower before tobacco blossom, honey and beeswax take over. The heart – rich and deep, with hints of dried fruit and creamy tuberose – is delicately anchored by a base of warm resins that give Slowdive its soft and exotic touch.

    Notes: neroli, orange flower, tobacco blossom, tuberose, honey, dried fruit, resin

    It’s lovely. October 14, 2019 at 11:15am

  • Elizabeth: My first thought was Bouquet Ideale by Xerjoff. This fragrance is warm, spicy but not particularly sweet. Another favourite in winter is Guerlain’s Mitsouko.

    Thank you for doing this giveaway.
    Yes it is fine to contact me. October 14, 2019 at 11:28am

  • Matty Maccaro: This perfume may not be for everyone but it is surely woody and reminds me of a light Autumn walk with leaves falling in the woods. Be forewarned the longevity is not great but I still totally enjoy Les Jardins de Bouddha, espirit de parfum (what is that?) by Parfum et Senteurs du Basque. October 14, 2019 at 11:31am

  • Nancy A.: Thanks for the giveaway opportunity! Blended with Coco Parfum has always worked for me with Mlle. Coco’s depth can stand alone for autumn into winter. October 14, 2019 at 11:47am

  • Nancy A.: Thanks for the giveaway opportunity! Blended with Coco Eau de Parfum has always worked for me with Mlle. Coco’s depth can stand alone for autumn into winter. October 14, 2019 at 11:48am

  • Heidi Czerwiec: Hi Tara! I’m all about the leather for autumn: Chanel Cuir de Russie or Cuir de Lancôme, or a vintage one like Diorling. I’m also loving the new Cloon Keen Castaña — the chestnut Note is woodsy & leathery, not gourmand. Thanks for the giveaway! Yes, you can contact me. October 14, 2019 at 11:50am

  • Colleen Boudreau: I would suggest VIKTOR&ROLF BONBON. It’s a warm fruity floral scent.

    Yes you can email me. 🙂 October 14, 2019 at 11:56am

  • Trudy: I also recommend the lovely Hermes Eau Des Merveilles. Also Narcisso Rodriquez EDT black bottle. It is warm and beautiful and just feels like fall/winter to me. Additionally, although it doesn’t seem to have been received well, I really like Chanel Paris-Riviera and I will continue to wear it into the fall. I think it is delicious and I get many compliments when wearing this which is kind of a nice surprise. No need to include me in the drawing. October 14, 2019 at 12:06pm

  • Guro: Thanks for a lovely draw! I’d reccommend Cadjmere 18 from PG perfumes, lovely woody opening, and the warmth and softness lasts for hours.

    Yes, you may contact me. October 14, 2019 at 12:19pm

  • Gretchen: Please don’t include me in the draw, but I love so many of these suggestions, I thought I would add some too. Lubin’s Idole is now only an edp and the bottle isn’t quite as stunning as the edt, but it’s an incredible fragrance. I agree with Bois des Iles for its sandalwood, and Encre Noir (the fat squadgy bottle is like its contents-deep and thoughtful), and Tauer’s Maroicain masterpiece. October 14, 2019 at 12:50pm

  • Sharon Reading: I’ve been wearing Suede Oude by Clean for some time. It is fresh, inoffensive to others and absolutely addictive. October 14, 2019 at 1:04pm

  • Poppy: I find cherry scents very comforting in the autumn for some reasons. Tom Ford’s Lost Cherry and Viktor&Rolf’s Dancing Roses are two of my favorites.

    Thanks for the lovely offer. Yes you can email me. October 14, 2019 at 1:47pm

  • Mai: What a wonderful giveaway! I’m quite a fan of vanilla, but steering away from it, I also find spicy scents just perfect for autumn!

    My suggestions are:

    Scherrer 2 by Jean Louis Scherrer – this scent doesn’t get enough love! It’s a beautiful, soft spicy oriental with honey, benzoin, tuberose, amber, sandalwood… it technically has vanilla, but I can’t really smell it. This feels like a gentler, slighly sweeter (not desert sweet!) Chanel Coco, with the same vintage charm but less clover-bite (I do love Coco as well!). Plus, the bottle is in gorgeous Art Deco style.

    Voyage d’Hermes (Edt) – as you mentioned autumn + spicy + woody, this came to my mind right away. A crisp, kind of cool but cozy scent with cardamom and woody notes… it reminds me of an old travel case (in a good way!) and vintage maps in sepia tones! I’m not a fan of the perfume (I find it too heavy) but the Eau de Toilette is a true, unique gem!

    Yes, you can email me if I win! 🙂 October 14, 2019 at 2:13pm

  • Cybele: 1. try Comme de Garcons White and I really enjoy Coco Noir in winter.

    2. sure you can contact me

    Thanks for your generosity! October 14, 2019 at 2:23pm

  • Nora Sz.: Hi Victoria and Tara,

    I recommend warm Serge Lutens scents: Arabie, Five o’vlock au Gingembre or Chergui.
    Chypres like Mitsouko or Yves Saint Laurent Champagne and Y work on golden autumn days.
    I second Bois des Iles and No. 22 and would like to add 31 Rue Cambon by Chanel. The last one is the ultimate fall scent to me.
    I looove Miss Dior Original (or vintage) in the autumn, it warms up a rainy day. October 14, 2019 at 2:25pm

    • Nora Sz.: Woops, forgot to add that I own Coco Mademoiselle already, no need to add me to the contest, good luck to all! October 14, 2019 at 2:28pm

  • John Luna: What a lovely offer! I’d be delighted to be included, as my 16-year old daughter just this fall has moved away from both early, sugary experiments (Pink Sugar, still a sentimental favourite) and running with the crowd (Gucci Bloom, nearly ubiquitous in her set last year) and declared her interest in a Chanel, specifically the EDP version of Coco Mademoiselle… At the start of school, I bought her a small decant of the Intense version and it was a big hit.

    For fall/winter recommendations, I have to go the Lutens Route as well… Last summer I picked up a bunch of samples for a friend, including Five O’Clock Au Gingembe (a delicate ginger marmalade-meets-tea fragrance), Ambre Sultan (a wonderfully savoury herbal amber) and Chergui. I had a chance to observe these in action on my friend, and found that Gingembre especially had a lovely drydown, and was richer than I expected. Also a personal favourite from this house is Filles en Aguilles… It is a little sweet, but is just so interesting (those smoked pine needles!) that I’d make an exception and try it. Good luck! Please feel free to contact me. October 14, 2019 at 2:28pm

  • CynthiaL: I would recommend Diptyque 34 Boulevard St. Germain, named after the address of their first store. Nothing says “Hello Autumn” more than this one to me. Warm, cozy, spicy, woody, and never boring. Thank you for your generosity and yes, you may contact me. October 14, 2019 at 2:53pm

  • Jessie: I would recommend trying Jo Malone Peony and Blush Suede. I received many compliments last Fall and Spring when I wore it. It’s not too floral or sweet. This combined with Jo Malone English Pear and Freesia is the perfect Fall fragrance!

    Of course you may contact me! October 14, 2019 at 3:57pm

  • Collar Wilson: I would recommend Dior’s Miss Dior Le Parfum as the perfect winter perfume. It’s a very warm scent, slightly Oriental, and fresh. It’s long lasting and has a beautiful trail. Yes, you can contact me by email. October 14, 2019 at 4:20pm

  • Julie: Thank you for the lovely giveaway. I would say my favorite fall is Tom Fords “Black Orchid”, and for a second Soft Surroundings “L Eau De Parfum. i don’t find it sweet at all, just thoroughly warm. The black vanilla note,(if that’s really a thing) within doesn’t strike me the typical vanilla gourmand note in any way. but that is just my opinion.
    And yes, please feel free to contact me. October 14, 2019 at 4:42pm

    • Kathy: Glad to read a view on one of the Soft Surroundings offerings. The paper dots in the catalogs smell so nice, but I have never ordered any of them. Thanks for bringing it up, Julie! October 14, 2019 at 6:28pm

  • Ali Khalid: In the fall I love the smell of narciso Rodriguez for her (black bottle) on my wife, it’s like a warm blanket right out of the dryer. Love it.

    And yes you can contact me via email 🙂 October 14, 2019 at 5:37pm

  • Maire Chen: Hi,

    I like the scents from grapefruit, jasmine, or white musk. But I would like to try pine or cedar for the autumn scents.
    Yes, you can contact me via email. Thank you very much. October 14, 2019 at 5:45pm

  • Giovanna: 1. Thank you for your generous giveaway. Iris silver mist (Lutens) is my suggestion, it is expensive though. Paco Rabanne black XS.
    2. Yes, you may contact me, of course. October 14, 2019 at 5:49pm

  • Kathy: Tara, I suggest my favorite fragrance, Estee by Estee Lauder. I delight in the vintage, but the current version was good last time I tested it at the counter of Macy’s. Also, Aromatics in White by Clinique has an incense-rose phase that might be nice for cool weather. Thank you for the give-away, and yes, you may contact me. October 14, 2019 at 6:33pm

  • Shannon Allen: I’d like to second Diptyque’s 34 Boulevard Saint Germain…though it does lean a tad masculine…and would like to add Chanel’s Paris-Venise, Bois des Iles, and Coromandel. Thank you, generous Tara…please do include me in the drawing and of course you may contact me via email! October 14, 2019 at 7:20pm

  • Angela S Hendricks: Burberry by Burberry is a fantastic perfume! It’s perfection! You may certainly contact me by email 😊 October 14, 2019 at 8:04pm

  • AndreaR: I would like to add:
    Bois et Fruits, Serge Lutens
    Bandit, Robert Piguet
    Beyond Rose, Clinique
    Cuir D’Ange Hermes.
    No need to add me. October 14, 2019 at 8:07pm

  • Alice: Coco Mademoiselle was 16-year-old me’s signature scent. I don’t know if I could wear it now, but it was perfect for me as a teenager. October 14, 2019 at 9:03pm

    • Alice: Oops, this was meant as a reply to John Luna’s comment. October 14, 2019 at 9:04pm

  • Armando: Hi Tara,
    I would recommend Woodissime by Mugler, from their Les Exceptions line. It is woody, warm, balsamic, but not too sweet and entirely inedible. It has great sillage and lasting power. October 14, 2019 at 9:51pm

    • Armando: Hi,
      Also, you may contact me via email and share my email with Tara. October 16, 2019 at 10:49am

  • rickyrebarco: Tara, I would recommend Teo Cabanel’s Barkhane, a woody, spicy amber that is totally warm and comforting. Also you may wish to try Nicolai’s Ambre Cashmere Intense, a beauty.
    Yes, you may contact me if I win. October 14, 2019 at 10:39pm

  • Mylinh: Some perfect Fall scent that comes to my mind that I recommend would be Serge Lutens Arabie, Tom Ford Ombre Leather, and Hermes Ambre Narguile! October 14, 2019 at 10:41pm

  • Vani: Thanks for the lovely giveaway.

    Hermès Ambre des Merveilles and Eau des Merveilles edt are both lovely in the autumn! Ambre des Merveilles especially has a lovely drydown without being sweet.

    Yes, you may contact me via email October 14, 2019 at 11:29pm

  • MK: Hello, I recommend Ambre Fetiche by Annick Goutal. It’s a long-lasting amber and a comfort scent great for fall days. I also recommend Serge Lutens Vetiver Oriental. It has a lovely amber base and is also long-lasting. October 15, 2019 at 12:18am

  • Fazal: Have you tried Kenzo Jungle Homme. I like it even more than Kenzo Jungle Elephant. Kenzo Jungle Homme is in the same vein but a bit friendlier than its female counterpart. Or mayb Malle Musc Ravageur.

    Or how about Salvatore Ferragamo Pour Homme. It is fig-themed but also has spicy-floral elements. It seems to me more formal version of fragrances like Diptyque Philosykos. I have not smelled Marc Jacobs for Men but reviews say it is similar to Diptyque and Ferragamo. If you do feel tempted by Ferragamo, let me know and I can guide you to the original version rather than the current reformulated one.

    You can share my contact info. October 15, 2019 at 2:40am

  • Neva: Hi Tara and Victoria! Reading the description above, it seems that we have the same taste in perfume. I can easily recommend Serge Lutens Feminite du Bois or Alaia (the first in the black bottle). They are both spicy, woody and not at all sweet.
    2. Of course, my email can be shared. October 15, 2019 at 4:05am

  • Melina Maraka: I would like to recommend the poppy and barley of Jo Malone. It is a new fragrance and I strongly believe that it will meet Tara’s expectations. My Email is at your disposal. October 15, 2019 at 5:34am

  • Kata Gyongy: Hi Tara,
    Thank you for your kind offer.
    I was actually just testing this scent at duty free the other day. It’s such a classic and yet I have never tried it.

    For autumn I would like to recommend you Viktoria Minya’s Eau de Hongrie, inspired by tokaji essence (a desert wine) from Hungary. The grapes are harvested late autumn after the first frost sets in, so for me it’s a perfect cozy and rich fragrance fitting the season. October 15, 2019 at 7:36am

  • Klaas: Hey Tara, I see a lot of amber scents in these recommendations. They sure are warm and comforting for the fall season, but to me, most of them smell sweet. So on a very different note, you could try La Route du Vetiver by Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier. I got to know it a few weeks ago and I’m smitten 😉

    The opening is unlike anything I ever smelled…super intriguing…..wet, dirty, mineral, a little tart, exotic…..there’s a lot going on, but it is not overwhelming or anything. It settles into a gorgeous vetiver scent, dark, rich, savoury, mysterious. Perfect for fall I would say. Good price, too! Plus, the brand offers affordable sample sets on their website.

    Keiko Mecheri Vetiver Velours is a benzoin based oriental, very smooth, very comforting, but it has a bit of that sweet vibe going on. I love it, though….

    No need to include me in the draw, but thank you for offering! October 15, 2019 at 10:25am

  • Rene Blanks: Hello Tara–I would like to second the suggestion of Ambre Fetiche by Anna Goutal–It is a soft but lasting scent I belive it great for the Autumn days!!

    Yes enter me in the contest– October 15, 2019 at 10:52am

  • Despina Veneti: 1. I’d recommend Issara from Parfums Dusita, a splendid aromatic fougere which I find deeply comforting in autumn and winter, in a way that only natural ingredients of supreme quality and fine fragrance blending can achieve. (Notes include pine, sage, coumarin, bourbon vetiver, tobacco, musk, amber, oakmoss and woods).
    2. Yes, please! October 15, 2019 at 10:59am

  • KatieAnn: Hello! Thank you for this generous giveaway. I like warm florals that aren’t too sweet. To that end, I would recommend Hermes 24 Faubourg and Annick Goutal’s Heure Exquise. Both are rich and comforting, perfect for cooler weather.
    Yes, you can contact me by email. October 15, 2019 at 1:44pm

  • Patty Brown: I think you would love Alien by Mugler or even Ruin Ford Lost Cherry… It’s really hard considering you want you don’t like remind or vanilla sense and you want something for the fall winter seasons maybe Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue intense or Tom Ford Soleil Blanc I think those would be some good ones to try and yes feel free to email me if I win or not but especially if I win LOL October 15, 2019 at 2:34pm

  • Maya: I also gravitate towards dry, sugarless concoctions. Some of the perfumes I adore during the fall and winter, and I think you may too, are SL Santal Majuscule for its creamy, dry sandalwood, Dyptique Eau Mage (spicy, dry citrus), and Guerlain Pamplelune for its patchouli and grapefruit.
    Yes, please enter me. Thanks for the generosity. October 15, 2019 at 5:06pm

  • Cait: I just picked up Usar from Euphorium Brooklyn and it has filled my fall with warmth and mystery! I highly reccomend it! And Yes, please! October 15, 2019 at 8:04pm

  • Small Review: In fall I find myself gravitating toward Guerlain’s Vol de Nuit and Mitsouko. Both are woody, but in different ways. Vol de Nuit reminds me of old wood furniture, spice, crisp autumn air, crunchy brown leaves, and a hint of winter on the horizon. Mitsouko’s all oakmoss, vetiver, and cinnamon and feels brighter, more like the start of fall when the sun is still shining and the leaves are vibrant and bright.

    Serge Lutens’ Chergui is another one I lean toward in fall. It’s comforting and soft. Lots of tobacco, amber, hay, and incense. Sweet from honey and amber, but I hate sugary sweet scents and can’t take heavy doses of honey, but it doesn’t bother me here. There’s a cool woody powderiness (iris and sandalwood?) after a little while that reminds me of the heart of Shalimar with that warm-cool contrast.

    Yes, you may contact me through email. Thank you for the opportunity! October 16, 2019 at 2:05am

  • Patri: what do you think of “Disobbedienza” – “Disobedience” by Hilde Soliani? a dark rose perfume with hints of ash, gingerbread, and powdery notes. wonderful, original, warm, perfect for cool temperatures. thank you for your generosity October 16, 2019 at 4:28am

  • Celie: Please don’t enter me into the draw!

    This October has been all about oak moss for me, it seems to go so well with the autumn foliage and nice, thick woolly jumpers. I’ve been enjoying Hiram Green’s Shangri-La and a carded sample of Versace’s Gianni Versace from 1982. Gianni Versace is wonderful! Everything but the kitchen sink and dries down into a mossy, sweet dark melange of oak moss, clove, myrrh, and benzoin with some tendrils of clean-ish musk. October 16, 2019 at 8:54am

  • rosarita: Thanks for the chance, Tara, very generous of you! 😊
    I love spicy scents, here are a few fall favorites: Neela Vermiere Trayee, the original Commes des Garcons, Mauboussin Histoire d’Eau Mauboussin (a true bargain online, smells like the very best potpourri w/cardomom and dried orange peel,) Imaginary Authors Memoirs of a Trespasser, Hove Perfumery Fascinator (very old perfumery in New Orleans, they sell samples,) Dawn Spencer Hurwitz Cimabue. Dawn has a great touch with spices as does Bertrand Duchaufour, he’s a good perfumer to look into.
    Whew! After all that, YES you may contact me. Some great choices in all the comments, hope you find new scents to love 🙂 October 16, 2019 at 9:39am

  • Maxima: Tara, thank you for your kind offer. Do you like Chanel’s other perfumes? Allure, Dune or even Allure Sensuelle are very nice.
    Contact me, please. October 16, 2019 at 10:39am

  • sillage4ever: I’ve been wearing the nutty, dried fig leaves scent of Imaginary Authors’ Yesterday Haze and think it’s a terrific autumn perfume that veers away from the usual gourmands.

    Coco Mademoiselle is so easily wearable in many situations, it’s hard to pin it down to a season for me like I usually do with perfumes.

    Thanks for the kind offer, please do contact me should I be lucky enough to be chosen. October 16, 2019 at 11:06am

  • Karina: 1. Serge Lutens, Gris Clair (like a cashmere jumper)
    Parlez moi de parfum, Milky Musc
    Kenzo, Jungle L’Elephant (strong though, and there is vanilla so if that scares you off it’s a no)
    Hermes – un jardin sur la lagune

    2. Sure October 16, 2019 at 3:49pm

  • Charlotte Barrow: What about Coco Chanel? It’s very different from Coco Mademoiselle; lots of spice and sandalwood 🙂

    Serge Luten’s Santal de Mysore has lots of spices alongside the sandalwood; very soft and comforting but a bit of sweetness so may not be your cup of tea.

    Good luck with your search! Please feel free to contact me Victoria for the draw 🙂 October 16, 2019 at 5:23pm

  • Wara Mantilla: This feels like i reconnected with a great friend that have not seen in years!!! Bois de Jasmin is such a special community of beauty, love and sharing! The fall calls me to use patchouli…the organic essential oil. After the horrid heat of the summer which lasted through the end of September…it has been a gift to smell its comforting waves of the earth as i walk enjoying the brisk days! Good luck to everyone, thank you to Tara!!! I am sending my information, in case i am the lucky one. October 16, 2019 at 5:39pm

  • Mary: I recommend Daim Blonde and the original Bottega Veneta. Yes, thank you, you can contact me. October 16, 2019 at 9:35pm

  • spe: Portrait of a Lady or Noire Epices by Malle. Perhaps Eau de Soir by Sisley for green spicy. Please do not enter me in the draw. October 17, 2019 at 1:52am

  • Deborah: I would recommend 01 Sunda Odin. It’s woody and spicy and wonderful. Yes you can share my email. October 17, 2019 at 9:27am

  • Anne: Lovely opportunity, thank you! My autumn recommendation is vintage Safari, Ralph Lauren. The opening green note of galbanum suddenly giving way to an unsweetened dry bouquet of pressed flowers is, to me, the epitome of late summer yielding to the glories of Autumn. October 17, 2019 at 9:42am

  • Anne: And yes, please do contact me. October 17, 2019 at 9:44am

  • Elizabeth: Thank you for the generous giveaway. My favorite autumn fragrance is Ormonde Jayne Woman, which is such a mysterious, cozy scent. It’s very unique. Whenever I wear it, I feel like I’m enveloped in a warm cocoon. I also adore Chanel fragrances, and for fall, Coromandel is my favorite. Yes, please contact me via email. October 17, 2019 at 10:03am

  • Rossignol: For early autumn would be great Acqua di Parma Blu Mediterraneo – Ginepro di Sardegna Acqua di Parma perfume for women and men
    yes , please contact me October 17, 2019 at 10:06am

  • OnWingsofSaffron: Mitsouko by Guerlain? It just might fit the bill—
    A very generous offer but please don‘t enter me in the draw. October 17, 2019 at 10:25am

  • Ulrika: Hello Victoria, what a wonderful opportunity to share recommendations, thank you.
    To answer your questions:
    1. I would opt for a vintage bottle of Fendi Theorema or Serge Lutens Five o’clock au gingembre.
    2. Yes, please. October 17, 2019 at 5:09pm

  • kalcedon: I’m late for the giveaway, but I see nobody has mentioned Cabochard by Grès. For me, it’s autumn in a bottle. October 18, 2019 at 7:01am

  • Nelle: I would say Givenchy L’Interdit, Goldfeild and Banks Velvet Splendor. Please contact me if I can still enter. October 21, 2019 at 12:37am

  • Jennifer Medlin: How kind of you! I am late (possibly too late?) to this party, however here are my thoughts on autumn perfumes. I live in the humid mid-Atlantic/southeastern United States, so when autumn comes, it is such a blessed relief and a true sensory delight to switch and savor different perfumes. I, too, eschew gourmands and vanilla, with few exceptions. Some favorites, not in any particular order, include Van Cleef & Arpels Ambre Imperial, Bottega Veneta Bottega Veneta (the original), Hermès Kelly Caleche, Mitsouko, Histoires des Parfums Ambre 114, Estee Lauder private collection Amber Ylang Ylang (a discontinued beauty and my only EL besides Bronze Goddess), Alaia Paris Alaia original in the black bottle—so dry and mesmerizing, and as others have said, Hermès Eau des Merveilles.
