    Likewise. The scents I can more easily wear in these seasons are far more complex and interesting.

    Fall and Spring. I love the seasons of change. I especially love the fall, when I get to start wearing darker scents again, but I guarantee I'll be excited to pull out my lighter stuff again on a warm spring day.

    Summer here is rather hot. Even in Spring most 'Spring' fragrances present problems. Once upon a time for me almost half the year was a dull time for fragrances. Aside from Guerlain's Vetiver, Eau de Hadrian, Annick Goutal's Vetiver, and a few others there were very few scents I could wear in hot weather which I really loved. Things seem to be changing now though. Partly because I'm becoming less concerned about the seasons and wearing what I want when I want, but also because I've found a number of very nice summer scents which suit me well, and have many more lined up to try.

    In other words I'm not sure I could pick. Is getting to enjoy your reliable favourites better than the excitement of discovery? Both have their charms.

    Fall. I can get away with some fresh scents, and can finally wear the gourmands!

    Default Re: What is your favorite time of the year for fragrances?

    Pretty much all of them, as the climate where I live changes quite a bit through all 4 seasons & it's nice to enjoy the variety. Can't say the bitter heart of winter here is something I enjoy, however. I could easily do without that.

    Fall for me. Less allergies due to pollen being lower and when it's too cold you won't be able to smell anything.

    In general, this my order of preference: fall, early winter, spring, early summer.

    Not a fan of: extreme weather (snow, heat wave), and the allergy season.

    Default Re: What is your favorite time of the year for fragrances?

    For me, the answer is as plain and unimaginative, as direct:

    Anytime is fragrance time and fragrance time is anytime.


    A few years ago, I still tended to select, organize, separate, group, classify, categorize my scents according to time of the year, time of the day, season, weather conditions etc., but since I live in a pretty much moderate climate zone and I can wear anything I like on most professional (even more so than on personal occasions, since I work mainly from my home office), my fragrance choices, fragrance wardrobe etc. have become quite whimsical, reckless, eclectic, uncommon, almost unrelated to any time of the year, season, weather etc. Thus, pretty much anytime of the year is my favorite for wearing any type of fragrance, as long as I can wear whatever I like.

    summer/autumn....becasue my nose works the best then!! and can notice beauty in scents that seem pale during the winter (No.18 , 28 La Pausa etc).....but i have the biggest urge for perfumes during the winter time for sure!!, maybe for me its big compensation thing for lack of light/sun

    I agree, and they allow for more scent flipping between seasonal types.

    As with clothing and style-- Fall is best for fragrances. Just to name two that burst out with glorious richness in the cool air: Givenchy Gentleman and Caraceni 1913 are fantastic this time of year. Winter is ok too, but really cold weather is not perfect for fragrances as one is bundled up and sometimes buildings are over heated, right now all is perfect. Fragrance lovers, I think, can't wait for Fall to step out with the really good stuff!

    Fall without a doubt. Everything seems to explode and feel deeper and richer this time of year.
