    Default Cold Weather Fragrances

    So, the chill is finally upon us... and I'm finding myself longing for something deep and spicy and warm, to carry me through the cold. Lucky me, Parfum Sacre is great for cold weather. I actually find that most of the Carons I've tried are at their best in the cold... I can't think of Aimez Moi without thinking of how sweetly romantic it is when I'm walking through the autumnal chill with my love, and the smoke and civet I originally found off-putting in Narcisse Noir were hypnotic when I went out Christmas shopping in freezing weather.

    So, what about you? What fragrances do you find are at their best when the thermometer drops?

    Rose, Apricot, Violet, Leather, Iris, Blackberry, Saffron, Musk, Incense

    Well I'm brand new here and diving headlong into each new smell and it just turned cold on the Carolina Beaches and today I have three answers for everything!: Arabie; Cuir Mauresque and Le Baisir de Dragon

    Hope this helps! :bounce:

    Yes, Baiser is a wonderful cold-weather scent, even though it itself has some cool touches to it (I find vetiver cool). I go even warmer with opoponax scents and even something like Jicky.

    Do not care for heavy, brown orientals, although these would certainly fit into this category.

    In addition to those already mentioned, I'd like to add Lolita Lempika and Omnia. The Kiss of the Dragon, I'll wear in any weather because like Paisley mentioned, it does have some cool touches to it.

    I really LOVE Angel in cool weather. I've just started wearing it again and love how it wraps around me and comforts me.

    My other favorites for cool weather are:
    Samsara, Initial, Mauboussin, Trouble,
    Euphoria, Allure Sensuelle, Gucci Eau de Parfum,
    Présence d'Une Femme, Flowerbomb
    all of them are far better in cool weather for me as opposed to in the heat of the summer.

    One of the few thing I enjoy with living in Scandinavia is that we are blessed with cold weather for almost six months a year. That means I can wear my beloved cold-weather-fragrances often! My current favorites are Les Nereides Imperial Opoponax, Vivienne Westwood Anglomania, Creed Angélique Encens and Shiseido Féminité de Bois.

    Hi Baby, welcome.

    I remember wearing Opium around the holidays

    I think Habanita is a great cold weather scent - it is a bit too strong on me when the heat makes it ripen, but for chilly days and nights it seems to stay closer to the skin and radiate warmth.
    The fragrance of flowers spreads only in the direction of the wind. But the goodness of a person spreads in all directions.

Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    What I am loving right now: Shalimar vintage extrait, Chanel Bois des Iles, Chanel no. 22, Le Labo Iris 39, Guerlain Iris Ganache

    Le Heure Bleue
    Cristobal (parfum)
    Burberry Brit
    Narcisse Noir
    Parfum Sacre
    Youth Dew (and Amber Nude)
