As the weather gets colder, it’s important to remember to change your perfumes and cologne as well. The cold, dry air of winter makes perfumes and cologne less likely to hover around you how it tends to in the warmer months. However, when choosing a winter scent, we at Awesome Perfumes can provide you with endless options.
Spicy scents can sometimes be overwhelming in the summer, but they become warm and inviting in the winter & help you stand out from the crowd. Whether you’re looking for a splash of spice to warm up the chilly air around you or a winter cologne or perfume to wear before you cozy up with a loved one by the fireside, we have something for everyone.
To give you a head start on your search, we’ve put together a list of our favorite women’s perfume and men’s cologne for winter.
The cold, dreary nights of winter can feel never-ending, but when spring approaches and the days get longer, find a fragrance that can warm up those last winter nights and keep you feeling fresh into spring days. To get you started, Awesome Perfumes has all your favorite winter fragrances to help you beat the winter blues and gear up for spring. Read on to know more.
You’ll Love These Winter Perfumes and Colognes
Shopping for perfume or cologne to wear in cold-weather opens up your possibilities. Warm and Spicy scents, which can feel overpowering in summer, are alluring and cozy in the cold air.
You can still keep things a little more mysterious if you try blending these classic notes with earthy, citrus, woodsy & fruity accords. Not only will it keep everyone guessing, but it’ll also make your winter perfume or cologne versatile enough to last all season long. If you’re on the hunt for a signature scent to fit your vibe, look no further than the list we have compiled for you.
As the weather starts getting cooler, the scents get warmer; that’s the tradition, anyway. Winter fragrances are known for spicy, woody, or amber notes. Whereas summer scents have a fresh, floral lift, and fall fragrances lean more heavily into the cold category, preparing us for the musky and deep tones of winter. The best thing about these transitional colognes and perfumes is that most of them will work all year long.
If you’re in the market for a winter fragrance with subtle warm notes, or if you’re hunting for a year-round scent, try one of the following scents. All of them are the best perfumes and colognes you can sport this season.
