Once you’ve found your signature scent, it only seems natural to just stick to it. Finding the perfect scent isn’t always easy, after all. But that fresh, fruity fragrance you picked up last summer might not translate that well in the colder months. You might want to consider having a seasonal rotation of scents that work for each season. So, what kind of notes should you be looking for this winter?
During the winter we all want to be as cozy as possible, and that doesn’t stop when it comes to beauty products and fragrances. Look for scents with comforting notes of vanilla, toffee, cocoa, juniper, bergamot, rose, amber, fig, patchouli, cassis, jasmine, etc. When you find the right one, it will surely help you beat the winter blues and make you feel fabulous!
Winter scents are perfect if you prefer deeper, muskier perfumes. Sometimes these scents can end up feeling quite deep and you might want to save them for evenings out. If you prefer fruitier, lighter scents you can still find the perfect combination of sweet and wintery if you seek out fragrances with comfort notes mixed with hints of citrus. These kinds of scents are ideal for everyday use during the winter.
