There’s just something so nice about finding your new signature fragrance; discovering a new scent that speaks to your personality is such an exciting feeling. With so many new fragrances debuting throughout the year it can be a little overwhelming when it comes to finding your new favourite, so I’m sharing a few of the hottest new scents to help you find your new fall fragrance.

When it comes to choosing a new perfume, go with what speaks to you; this will become your personal fragrance and you want to make sure that you love it and it speaks to you. Head out to the store and don’t be afraid to try something on. Apply it to spots that tend to get a little warmer (ie your wrists and neck). This will allow the fragrance to blend with your own natural oils and you’ll be amazed at how it transforms when you’re wearing it. It’s remarkable how fragrances can smell different when worn by different people. I recommend bring home samples of a few scents that you’re interested in home and wearing them to see how you feel. And don’t be afraid to get more than one! I have quite the fragrance collection and I find that different scents work better for my various moods, settings and events!

If you’re feeling creative:

Kenzo World Eau de Parfum was designed to embrace a freedom of expression and creativity, which is perfect if you’re feeling like a bit of a free spirit. Notes of peony and jasmine give it a floral base and the scent is energetic and lively.

If you’re feeling classic:

Who else loves fall shades? I love the collections that come out this time of year – they warm up the face and help you to transition seamlessly into winter. One of my favourite launches every year always comes from Dior and this year is no exception; they’ve played with the metallic trend in a perfect way. Today I’m chatting about the Dior Metallics Fall 2017 5 Couleurs palettes – Read on for pics of the palettes and swatches of both.

Both palettes have a nice combination of matte shades and gorgeous metallic, shimmery hues which work really well together. I love the punch that the shimmer packs and these can be used with other palettes as well to up the glam factor. They have a gorgeous effect, and a ton of pigment. I find they work really well with the Metalizer Eyes & Lips shades as well – I actually like to start off by using one of these as a primer to really bring out the full metallic look.

The Hypnotize palette has a warmer feel to it with chocolate tones and gold hues while the Magnetize palette is perfect for those who prefer a bit more drama; cooler shadows in charcoals and silver shades make this one a real showstopper. I really like how all of the shades work together & the deeper shades in both are gorgeous. The only thing that didn’t really work for me is the top right shades in both; they lacked pigment and shimmer to really make up for this.

Is there really any better season to do a little shopping than fall? I always feel so inspired to update everything when this time of year rolls around; it seems that there’s always something new to try, whether it be something on trend in your wardrobe, a different shade of eyeshadow or some gorgeous new home décor. With perfect timing, Oakville Place is going to be celebrating their grand reopening.
