    Default For Chilly Fall Days - Boozy Niche Scents?

    Hope all is well,

    With the fall coming up, I checked my collection, and noticed I don’t own any boozy fragrances. I own all the powdery winter scents and a few Chanel’s that will get a lot of wearings, but no boozy scents.

    What would y’all recommend as far as boozy/whiskey frags go?

    Prefer niche because I’m mostly familiar with all the designer boozy scents but not niche.

    Thanks,

    This one reminds me of Kilian Straight to Heaven, the performance could've been better.

    Good and popular choice.

    Mona di Orio Vanille is another great boozy scent.

    As much as I've been leaning more niche, more odd, more "indie" lately... I just cannot help a loving spritz of Tobacco Vanille in the fall.

    Stupidly good.

    Can be found online for under $30. Worn when it's cool it's very good. Worn when it's cold it's outstanding.
    Most worn:

    Black Comme des Garçons, Borneo 1834 Serge Lutens, Patchouli Santa Maria Novella

    +1 on By Kilian Apple Brandy and I'd add Single Malt and Straight to Heaven Extreme (extra rum) to that too. Jovoy Pavillon Rouge has some very nice boozy notes and is great for the Fall.
