While winter might not be everyone’s favourite season, there’s plenty of reason to love a wintery-inspired scent. As opposed to the kind of fragrances you’ll often find lingering in the air during spring and summer, winter scents bring a little more opportunity for experimentation and depth.
Whether you prefer woody, smokey notes, or sweeter winter florals—the scents of the cooler season aren’t just limited to your basic fireside aromas. Personally, we think there’s something to be said for changing up your signature scent to mark the turn of season—leaving you feeling warm, cosy, and nostalgic in the way only a great fragrance can.
From scents capable of boosting your mood (and aligning your chakras) to fragrances that will transport you to a distant—and potentially warmer—location, keep reading below for the 14 fragrances you’ll want to wear all winter long.
