9 Winter Fragrances To Warm Up Your Winter

posted in Beauty > Fragrance
  • To survive winter, we need to amp up our beauty arsenal. To complement the snowy season, a fragrance update is in order. If you haven’t yet stashed away summery scents in favor of a warming fragrance with different notes, the time has come. And while patchouli and rich leather might come to mind when shopping for a winter perfume, sweet caramel and sophisticated florals are still appropriate. We’ve gathered some of the best aromas for every types of eau wearer to keep you warm on the coldest of days this season.

  • Like all of the brand's scents, this one from the Cologne Absolue collection has a story. Ambre Nue was born after the founders Sylvie Ganter and Christophe Cervasel came across a rare flower known to the locals as Brunello, that they'd never smelled before. The top notes in the earthy cologne include patchouli, cinnamon and bergamot — perfect for a sexy evening out.

  • Get your sweet fix with this perfume that comes in a candy wrapper-shaped bottle. The main note, caramel, is present throughout, while other main accords include peach, cedarwood and amber. Totally delicious.

  • This sophisticated scent transforms notes of vetiver (the most elegant note in the woody family) for a daring and seductive effect. The heart of the perfume is musk, but it's softened by the amber, which gives it some warmth.

  • Upon taking a whiff of this Indian spice-inspired perfume, you'll be hit with a burst of citrusy pomelo before getting into the more bitter spicy notes that give it depth. The heart of the fragrance is notes of cristal rose, black violet and leather (although the saffron lingers on), while the base notes include vetiver and wood, which get softened by a touch of raspberry.

  • If you're into florals, then this bold and glamorous fragrance is for you. The initial scent is rosy, followed by a chocolate-scented Sharry Baby orchid and iris blend, and ends with night jasmine.

  • Fougere Furieuse is like a walk through the forest. Woody notes of oak moss, coumarin, geranium and bergamot work harmoniously with orange, neroli and amber to create a green scent that is still feminine.

  • For a bright floral fragrance with a mature twist, this luxurious scent from Italian fashion house Bottega Veneta is calling your name. It's a strong opening with notes of mandarin, orange blossom and neroli — but the lavender, white rose and peony mid notes give it a refined feel.

  • The masculine-meets-feminine, bohemian-but-glamorous, aromatic patchouli was the very popular note of the 70s when it came to perfumes. The bold accord comes from the herbal family and is beautifully showcased in this modern take by Tom Ford.

  • McCartney pays homage to the English rose in this perfume but juxtaposes the classic feminine note with the masculinity of amber. The result is a gorgeous everyday scent that is totally fresh.
