10 Most Popular Fragrances for Autumn that you simply HAVE to try!

by Kimberly Duran 20 Oct 2022 0 Comments

If you’re looking for the perfect fragrance to welcome the season, then our top 10 list of popular Autumn fragrances should be your first stop. The perfect Autumn fragrance in either your home fragrance products or your bath and body products will certainly brighten those crisp autumn days as well as setting the tone for your cosy nights spent in front of the fire.

Saying goodbye to summer is never easy, especially if the weather has been sweet. Autumn however, is also such a beautiful time of the year and we shouldn’t let this season pass quietly.

Autumn is the time for change. The leaves display an array of autumnal browns, oranges and reds as they transition from their healthy, summer green. Our nose and cheeks gradually get redder as the colder weather moves in. The shorter days mean more time spent wrapped up cosy in front of a roaring fire with a hot chocolate, the glow of candle light flickering away in the background.

With autumn comes immense excitement for Halloween and Bonfire Night as well as the warm and fuzzy build-up inside that Christmas will soon follow. The nostalgic, sentimental thoughts we experience by remembering the days gone by bring renewed optimism, helping the excitement to flow on those cold, dreary days.

What Fragrances are Associated with Autumn?

The dominant smells of autumn are earthy, crisp and sharp. The smell of the leaves, trees and plants dying away for the year. The memorable scent of fallen leaves left to decay on the ground and the pleasurable aroma of burning wood.

Cinnamon, spices and rich, creamy vanilla are among the popular scents of autumn, especially around the bakery sections of supermarkets or from open, steamed up kitchen windows as families bake their favourite seasonal pies.

Which Autumn Fragrance Should I Choose to Freshen my Home?

So, what type of home fragrance should you choose for Autumn? There are literally hundreds of amazing fragrances (more than 500 in our fragrance oil category!) so deciding on the right scent may take a little time and patience.

This is where we come to the rescue! You might be thinking of making a candle or a room spray, some wax melts or a reed diffuser. You could even go as far as matching your chosen home fragrance with a moisturising hand wash or body butter to pair with it for a more luxury appeal.

Whatever the product, here at Craftovator, the perfect autumn fragrance is just a click away.

How Can I Use Fragrance Oils?

Our fragrance oils are suitable for use in many products from home fragrance to bath and body products. The most popular home fragrance products on the market today are candles, wax melts, room sprays and reed diffusers so you really have a great selection to pick from.

Check out our tutorial for creating Fallen Leaves Wax Melts, perfect for Autumn here.

Each product has its own individual level of fragrance throw and we believe that scents are so subjective. What you might find strong, another might find subtle and vice versa.

If you prefer a stronger burst of fragrance, opt for either a wax melt or room spray. For a lighter fragrance, we’d recommend a candle. If candles or wax melts aren’t for you, then a reed diffuser is the way forward. They’re a great way to fragrance your home with minimal fuss and are in fact very low maintenance!

How Much Fragrance Oil Can I Use in My Products?

We would advise checking the ‘IFRA 49th Amendment’ document download on each fragrance oils page for safe usage levels, particularly if opting to make reed diffusers, room sprays, soap or other body products. We’ve listed the categories for the most popular products below to help you locate the maximum percentages easily.

  • Reed Diffusers: category 10a (recommended usage: 15% - 25%)
  • Room Sprays: category 10b (recommended usage: 3% - 5%)
  • Candles/Wax Melts: category 12 (recommended usage: up to 10%)
  • Soap/Rinse Off/Wash Off products: category 9 (recommended usage: 1% - 3%)
  • Perfume: category 4 (recommended usage: 10-20%)
  • Leave on body products: category 5a, 5b, 5c (recommended usage: 1%)

The percentages as per the above information are totally dependent on the maximum usage levels stated on the IFRA 49th Amendment document. If the percentage is higher than the recommended amount above, then you would only go up to the highest percentage we’ve stated and only providing your chosen base is suitable and can hold this amount of oil.

We've shared the maximum usage limits on each of our most popular autumn fragrances below to make it easy for you to see what products you're able to use with the fragrance oil selections.

Whether you’re after a rich, creamy vanilla, a warming, smoky accord or a sweet, spicy fruit concoction, we can help you decide with our Top 10 Most Popular Fragrances for Autumn.
