    Default Addictive Winter Winner

    Hey guys, I have been looking hard and have got down to only these houses Mona Di Orio ,Serge Lutens, Amouage and Frederic Malle.
    Is there a winter fragrance which is absolutely addictive and you can't get rid off ? If you guys think that other houses suit the brief better then fire away.

    I don't know that I'd name a house, but this winter LIDGE (L'Instant De Guerlain pour homme eau Extreme) by Guerlain and Epic Man by Amouage have been winners for me.

    From the houses you listed:

    Mona di Orio: Vanille and Cuir
    Serge Lutens: Chergui and Fille en Aiguilles
    Amouage: Epic and Jubilation XXV
    Frederic Malle: Musc Ravageur

    Those are my favorites. It is hard for me to find a good fragrance for Winter compared to other seasons though.

    Serge- Fumerie Turque is a pretty obvious choice (sweet and smokey). Borneo 1834, as a thicker gourmand, would be fantastic for winter. Ambre Sultan would be great, and MKK would work very well. I absolutely loathe Gris Clair, but if I were to wear it, I'd wear it in the winter. There are probably many others, but these are the Lutens I'm familiar with that I think would work for winter.

    Amouage- Well, the attars would be beautiful in winter (and there are tons of them that the western market isn't familiar with that I haven't heard anything about, I'm curious to hear about these). I'm honestly not that into too many of Amouage's fragrances. Jubilation XXV might do well in winter, I can certainly picture that.

    Frederic Malle- I'm finding this one pretty tough. I don't know a lot of the line. How about Geranium pour monsieur? I can totally picture the minty floral shining in snowy weather. It would be beautiful.

    Mona- The only Mona I actually like is Vanille, and I think it's work pretty well in the winter. I'm kind of blech to everything else.

    Mona di Orio's Vanille is definitely a nice winter scent as are Ambre Sultan and Chergui from Serge Lutens.

    I'm a great admirer of Jubilation XXV and only ever where it in the winter months but some may find it better suited for nighttime, rather than daytime, wear.

    You've got some great suggestions above. Adding my $0.02, Slumberhouse Vikt extrait has been the scent this winter that grabbed me and just won't let go. Licorice + incense. I'm even wearing it to work. Can't put it down….

    SL Fumerie Turque of the houses you listed, but you should definitely check out Profumum Arso. It's my #1 winter "go to" fragrance.

    Musc Ravageur. Women will be running after you, screaming your name and throwing their handbags and panties at the windows of your chauffeur-driven black Range Rover as you speed off into the night. In my opinion.
