    Default Cold Weather! Yes!

    So, I haven't been posting here this summer. That's because my taste in summer perfumes is pretty pedestrian. Lots of citrus, lots of white flowers, and a bit of fruit are all I really require. Most of the time, I go (sssshhhh) scentless. But cold weather perfume is a different matter. I really go all out when that hits. So, as I've been rotating my collection to fit the season, I'm thinking about the perfumes that I am most excited to put back on my list. Here they are:

    Narcisse Noir
    Parfum Sacre
    Tabac Blond (why yes, there IS a theme here)
    Angel (I don't like it on other people, but I like it on me - go figure)
    Arabie
    and a new love, Black Cashmere.

    How about you? Do you have any favorites that you wear ONLY when it's cold?


    Favorite Notes:
    Rose, Apricot, Violet, Leather, Iris, Blackberry, Saffron, Musk, Incense

    My cooler weather scents.... Armani Attitude, Armani Prive Amber Soie and Cuir Amethyste, Armani Pour Homme, M7, Angel Men, Safari, Polo Crest, Comme des Garcons 2 EdP and CdG Man, CdG White and CdG #3, Extreme Polo Sport and Polo.
    These are some that I only wear when it is cold or at least cooler than it has been.

    Jo Malone Black Vetyver Cafe--woody, soft, a hint of coffee.

    Djuna, if you need more Black Cashmere, let me know. Quinpus gave me some last year, and I'm not as drawn to it as once was.

    Was just passing a bottle of Narcisse Noir around a group of similarly minded friends this evening (much like a hashpipe, only legal). One guy who hadn't smelled it before said 'Good God! It's like your grandmother's fur coat! This'd be fantastic in the snow. With a mink hat.'

    Roll on winter!

    I'm pretty seanonless with scents EXCEPT Donna Karan in the black & yellow swan bottle. I tried the suede and spice cocoction in the heat of summer & BLEH!! It was so awful I can't express how overpowering it was. It needs the cold to bloom properly.

    Coco. I am sure it smells divine in the summer too . I received my first botlle for Christmas one year and it always reminds me of that time of year .

    I, too, am so very glad that the cooler weather is almost here. I love autumn and early winter -- although, I can do without the blah, rainy wet Novembers that we have here.

    My cooler weather scents are the incensey ones and the smouldering hot and heavier orientals.

    For cold weather I would probably go for something spicy and oriental or maybe incency.Examples are Shalimar,Nu edp &Trouble perhaps...Oh,and Opium fleur Imperiale also comes to mind.

    It was so hot here all summer, I just wore L'Occitane Verbena (citrus) or Eau de Recolte Bleue at night (lavender, freesia, peach) if that. I didn't buy anything new. But now that the heat is broken, I've been working up a list and just purchased two I've been looking at for a year and never sniffed. Couldn't help myself and those bottles.

    Panthere Eau Legere by Cartier and Kenzo Jungle L'Elephant.

    Great reviews on basenotes for the Jungle L'Elephant, once I finally got on to see them! lol I'm just getting started...
