Yes it is getting colder and rainier - which leads right up to my almost-foolproof way of testing the impact of a heavier scent. Spray it at your solar plexus and on your wrists, a little higher up (towards the elbow) than usual. Just a couple of sprays, max 3. Wear a couple of layers of clothing, like a t-shirt and a sweater together. The point is to have your first wearings be subtle, which they will be if your spraying points are covered by clothing. Also a (very) light spritz on a wool scarf works great too - just be sure you like the scent, because wool retains scent for a very long time.
If you don't have any problem with wearing SDV, then you are at the helm and you will rock this scent. Just remember that a light application works wonders with an intense scent such as this one; going heavier won't increase your confidence.
I commend your good taste so early in life.
