4 luxury fragrances we want to wear this season

Are you, like us, switching up your perfume for autumn? These are the scents we’ll be buying from McCauley Health and Beauty Pharmacy


September is a mini ‘new year’ of sorts. It has always been a month of new beginnings – a new school year, a new season, a fresh start – and we at IMAGE intend to make the most of it.

We’re marking it by revamping our beauty cupboard, and with a number of five-star perfume launches taking place over the coming weeks, we’re kicking off the revamp with fragrance.

Every year, September marks the beginning of ‘fragrance season’; the time of year when luxury perfume brands unveil their new scents. It’s also the perfect time to indulge in the classic perfumes you’ve never worn before.

All that matters is it’s new, special and perfect for you.

As always, we’re buying ours from McCauley Health and Beauty Pharmacy. One of Ireland’s largest fragrance destinations, McCauley’s has hundreds of scents to choose from (including all of the newest, luxury launches).

Scents for autumn

Whether you want to splurge on the luxurious Chanel No. 5 this autumn, or grab a purse-friendly handbag scent for when you’re on the go, McCauley’s has it all.

What’s more, they have a fragrant specialist instore to help you find your perfect scent or perfume for someone special. The icing on the cake? There’s a free deluxe fragrance gift with any fragrance purchase.

Here are the perfumes Team IMAGE is eyeing up this season…

Chloe Fleur De Parfum 50ml

€89 from McCauley

A tender floral blend. Chloé Fleur de Parfum is a generous bouquet exclusively composed of the most tender and quintessential part of flowers – their hearts. The fundamental note comes from the rose heart.

The heart of verbena flower adds a fresh and luminously verdant dimension, while the heart of cherry blossom diffuses milky, almond notes.

Gucci Memoire EDP 100ml

€110 from McCauley

Presenting a universal scent: Gucci Memoire d’une Odeur, a fragrance that transcends gender and explores the power of memory. Top notes of Roman Chamomile; heart notes of Indian coral jasmine and precious Musks; and base notes of vanilla, sandalwood and cedarwood.

Gucci Bloom Nectar Di Fiori EDP 50ml

€97 from McCauley

Notes of natural tuberose and jasmine leave an unexpectedly rich white floral scent on the skin. Rangoon creeper, a plant that changes colour when it ‘Blooms’, infuses a powdery, floral edge.

Armani Si EDP 100ml

€120 from McCauley

Opening with notes of Sicilian bergamot, mandarin oil and liquer de cassis; a heart which bursts with rose de mai absolute, neroli absolute and Egyptian jasmine absolute; and base notes of patchouli oil intertwined with amber and musky undertones.
