    Default Fragrances That Smell Completely Different From Summer to Winter

    As obvious as it seems, I've noticed that some of my fragrances, even the ones that I don't wear often, smell drastically different now that the weather has turned from 40-50s to 70-80s. Its almost like night and day.

    L'eau Bleue D'Issey Miyake - I don't think this was meant to be a summer scent at all. So banal and typically citrus-heavy in the summer. I'm not getting any of the herbal or minty notes.

    Bvlgari PH Soir - there's a creaminess to this that seems to get lost in the winter. In the winter, its so much more dry and woody, and the spice notes are front and center. This could work wonders on a summer night...

    Any others come to mind?
    Fall/Winter Rotation:

    Versace Man by Versace
    Iceberg The Fragrance by Iceberg
    Amber Intense by Prada
    Tom Ford Grey Vetiver
    Burberry London
    Lanvin Avant Garde

    If smelling good was a crime, I'd be serving a lifetime sentence....

    The only one I can think of that on me this happens is C'est Magique.

    Quorum.

    Summer: Uneven mix of synthetic, sickly-sweet citrus and the devil's cigar tobacco.

    Autumn/Winter: Brilliant blend of citrus, pine, leather, and tobacco.

    Take in to consideration your taste evolves.

    A lot of fragrances (especially orientals and huge, lush florals) are meant to bloom in the summer heat. Miel de Bois smells tame and reserved in winter and huge, arresting and captivating in summer for example.

    Comme des Garcons Hinoki. There's a few others, but I wore this one a couple of days ago, got surprised.
