I smell the fragrance of fall in the air. The morning air is crisp, the leaves are turning, the days are getting shorter, and the temperature is dipping. The quilts are out, the comforters are in. Summer dresses are out, sweaters and light jackets are in. While the aforementioned changes are easier to adjust to, it is my garden and its changing appearance that asks me of my patience, for it is going to be a long wait before my garden dresses up in a myriad of colours afresh.
In a country like Bangladesh, there’s either blistering heat or pouring rain. As for any other season, it’s a hit or miss. Autumn or late autumn brings a romantic feel to the air, just like spring. When the leaves turn yellow and red, it’s neither too hot nor too cold. On days like these, some of us want to curl up and read or watch something. Some of us may like to go out on long romantic walks, or just chill with friends with a cup of hot chocolate at your favourite coffee parlour. Many of us would still have to venture out to do our daily tasks or fulfil social duties. For either occasion, a spray of your favourite perfume would take you a long way. However, there are no “best” fragrances. What works for me, may not work for you, so take this list with a pinch of salt.
