How do I choose a winter perfume?

The most awaited season of the year is here! 

As we all go jaunty singing the Christmas carols and attending dinners, we always look up to wearing the best perfume in our closet. Dressing up feels incomplete without wearing a fragrance. 

As you change your clothes according to the weather, you should equally choose appropriate perfumes and colognes. Different seasons call for a different choice of perfumes. 

Winter is approaching, and we all look for the perfect perfumes to compliment it. Perfumes are to be worn in the contrast of the season. For example, light and floral fragrances go well with summer and spring as they pacify us and make us feel cool and calm. 

On the other hand, woody, musky and oriental fragrances go well with winters, as it is all about adding the extra heat which our body is constantly looking for. 

If you are perplexed in choosing what goes best in the cold weather, follow our simple, informative, and super helpful options to make you feel amazing this winter. 

Before going straight to giving you the best suitable options for the winter fragrances, we shall discuss some of the important points. 

  • You should always spend some time and know your perfumes just like the way we give time to try and walk before choosing the best-fit shoe. 
  • Give yourself 3 to 5 minutes after spraying, so that it blends well and gets settled down perfectly. Once it is settled, you will quickly get the click – whether it is working for you or not.
  • If you tend to spray the perfume on your wrist or neck, do not rub it with the other hand. It will destroy the actual essence and some top notes of the perfume.
  • For winters, go for spicy, musky, woody, sweet, and oriental base notes that make the base of a perfume.
  • Do not copy what your friend or colleague is wearing. Each one of us has different body chemistry. It reacts differently to different individuals.

What experienced industry people and celebrities say about winter fragrances – 

“During the winters, heavy clothing and the fall in the temperature does not emanate the fragrance as easily as it would in the summer or the spring season. Winter perfumes depend on one’s body chemistry. If your skin is dehydrated, your body needs a fragrance that has an essence that is warm and intense, as compared to other seasons. Fragrances linger well on skin that is not dry and enhances the staying power of the fragrance.” – Fiona Caroline, Parfum Christian Dior

“Jo Malone’s fragrance is my favorite thing, so much so that if I leave the house and don’t put any on, I’ll turn around and go back home. Yep, that’s a commitment to cologne. – Meghan Markle
