Winter’s chill has set in and the need for a cold-weather fragrance is a must to cocoon yourself in a comforting aura and make a statement that resonates with the season’s unique charm. Whether you like spicy, warm notes or nostalgic winter scents like cinnamon and cardamom, our range of winter perfumes and fragrances has you covered.
What are winter scents?
As temperatures drop, fragrance preferences shift from light, floral notes to comfy, cosy notes that embody the spirit of the festive season. Any rich, aromatic, warm or spicy scent could be classified as a traditional ‘winter’ scent. Think of a cold, frosty morning with the unexpected waft of cinnamon. It very rarely happens, does it? But a winter scent offers this illusion in just a spritz. Like the same snug, idyllic feeling you get after the first sip of hot chocolate in front of the fireplace.
Cosy notes for winter
The perfect winter fragrance has the enchanting ability to transport you to a serene snow-covered winter woodland. It’s quite simply a matter of deciding which scents you like best and letting the fragrance do the rest.
