    L'Instant de Guerlain pour homme - wonderful cold evening scent, I can figure wearing it with a turtleneck and flannel jacket

    Burberry Brit New Year's Edition is also another "Christmas in a bottle" fragrance. It's pine, incense, and nutmeg. If Burberry London smells like Christmas night then this one smells like Christmas morning.

    Yep, Burberry London is great at Christmas. The only problem is getting it to last through the day.

    Another that reminds me of Christmas is Ralph Lauren's Purple Label. I think it has more projection and longevity than BL, and it definitely reminds me of the green/eucalyptus smells of Christmas.

    Serge Luten's Rousse always puts me in the Holiday mood. One of the best cinnamon fragrances out there. It reminds me of those cinnamon & clove scented pine cones and decorative brooms they sell in the home decorating stores this time of year.

    Others I like around this time include Diesel Zero Plus Masculine, V&R Spicebomb, A*Men original, Dior's Hypnotic Poison, & CK One Shock.

    Tobacco Vanille + Oud Wood (layered)
    Pure Malt

    Just tried my sample of Norne from Slumberhouse... it's smells like the sap from a Christmas tree... It may just end up being my 2012 Holiday Scent!
    Top notes of... sweat, gasoline, motor oil; a heart of deer musk and gunpowder, resting on a base of sex and testosterone... Mandom.

    Serge Lutens Fille en Aiguilles smells very Christmas-y to me, with the pine note, incense, spices, etc.

    Nothing special that I wouldn't wear on any other day. But then again - maybe I'll go with Clive Christian No. 1 pure parfum.

    Apart from Burberry London, I'd also like to suggest Declaration by Cartier.

    Bois des Iles Chanel is incredibly warm and a classic

    As for the new classics I'd recommend Eau des Merveilles and L'Ambre des Merveilles - both great just differently nuanced

    A classic cheapie- Charlie Red- I think purely for sentimental reasons.

    Other than that, probably some warm gourmand scent.

    Have to agree with Spicebomb this time of year. I hadn't worn it for several months but wore it tonight. It's a very nice holiday fragrance that mixes very well with the food and other assorted smells of Christmas.

    Noel au Balcon. Not just because of the name, but it really is very Christmassy.
    Current Top Five:
    1. Bois des Iles--Chanel
    2. George Sand--Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier
    3. L'Ame Soeur--Divine
    4. Violet Blonde--Tom Ford
    5. Santal Blush--Tom Ford
