    Default Best Winter Fragrances (Designers)???

    These are my personal top 10 winter fragrances, but I am planning to spoil myself with at least 4 bottles this winter. Please, tell me the safest 4 I could go with. Thanks!

    NOTE: I have Dior Homme Intense already.

    Azzaro pour homme and Encre Niore are very nice. I sampled these and planned on buying them for this winter season.

    Looks to me like you already have some great ones there. Why don't you pick the one you like the best and venture into something similar but a little more challenging?

    Agree.

    Safe?
    Hmmm, depends what you're into.

    Carven - Homme (You have to try this, blind buy it, whatever it takes. Feel of Egoiste, more wearable than Heritage. Look on eBay.)
    Pal Zileri - Viaggio d'Africa (If you like MIP EDP, get this, same softness with an edge)
    Legendary Fragrances - Barista (Best, most authentic coffee I've smelled, from roasting, to serving, to the empty mug. Even the wood table you're sitting at.)
    Bentley for Men Intense - (Rum & Coke with wood and incense)

    In it's current state it doesn't have enough balls to be a winter fragrance.

    Judging from your list, I think that bigbz made a really good list of ones that you might like or find interesting.

    Antaeus still has big balls imo. Not as much as before but enough to be a winter frag. Anyways. Antaeus, eau sauvage parfum, vintage polo green or even reform will do. All are powerhouses. Something more modern would be 24 gold, LDDM, and terre d hermes

    I have to say Versace Eros. I have been wearing it a lot in the cold weather and it really radiates a rich woody citric sweetness.
