Fall has arrived and the warm summer-like weather is quickly fading. You may notice that the cooler temperatures bring about a distinct smell. This is due to odor molecules moving more slowly in cold weather as opposed to the summer heat, according to Pamela Dalton of Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia.1 To tap into the familiar and fond fragrances of fall, consider changing up your scent. As you adjust your fragrances during this seasonal transition, however, be advised that lower temperatures actually diminish the impact of a fragrance. To counter this, you may need to layer your perfume or cologne in order to achieve your desired scent or apply your fragrance more frequently 2.
Additionally, the fragrances of the spring and summer months don’t reflect the mood of the fall season. Floral scents are incredibly impactful in warm weather, but may not be a good choice for chilly autumn days. Not everyone knows what scents work best for fall—so we’re here to help.
