A Dozen Fragrances To Fall For

[title subtitle=”You Need To Try ASAP”]12 Fall Fragrances[/title]

I can still remember my prepubescent years like it was just yesterday—tweenage Courtney obsessing over body sprays from Victoria’s Secret and Bath & Body Works. Fortunately, for the greater good of mankind, I outgrew my predisposition for absurdly sweet fragrances and gravitated towards lighter floral scents.

With refined tastes and an expanded knowledge of what actually “smells good”—touches of subtle musk and basil as the leaves begin to turn color—I present you a dozen of my favorite fall perfumes.

Enjoy!
