    Default Top 3 Seasonal Fragrences

    I am new to this Frag World.

    I have always had a few bottles that I rotated, but I wouldn't wear one based on weather, notes, etc. If I hadn't worn one in a while I would wear it rain or shine. However, I'm learning.

    Here's my questions.

    What are your favorite Scents to wear each Season:

    WINTER

    SPRING

    SUMMER

    FALL

    I live in a decent sized City, however I don't have access to a lot of niche fragrances. Sephora carries some Tom Ford, but alot of the others are not accessible to me.

    That being said what are your favorite top 3 Fragrences to wear each season? I am looking to score some new scents and I am a sucker for blind buys. So far I'm batting 100%

    I personally don't choose my scents according to season although I understand those who choose to. I'll wear any scent I own at any time of year.

    These aren't necessarily my 12 favorite scents. They're just the three which, very specific to each season, I enjoy wearing the most. Invasion Barbare for example is my number 2 of all time, but I don't associate it with a particular season. Paris*LA may not even breech my top 30 but I absolutely love to wear it in the winter. When winter comes, it 's in my top 10 for sure.

    At the same time, if I had to subsist on 12 fragrances for the entire year, this list would actually work pretty well for me.
    My wardrobe is up to date as of 10/09/17, and anything on my "Swap List" is for sale. You set the price and we'll negotiate from there. Inquire within!

    Summer: Renaissance by Xerjoff
    Autumn: Eau des Baux by L'Occitane
    Winter: Chergui by Lutens
    Spring: everything really

    Same goes for me. I really never categorized or listed up the scents based upon the season.

    I live in a place without four distinct seasons. Also, I'm very new to fragrance.
    Warm weather: Dior Home Cologne, Dior Sauvage.
    Cold weather: Mont Blanc Individual.
    Dior Homme Cologne is my favorite: very pleasant and inoffensive.

    These are always fun for me, although I don't stick to these guidelines. However, I won't be wearing heavy "wintery" scents in the Housoton summer...
    Spring: Sycomore edt, A Midsummer Dream, Vetiver Extraordinaire
    Summer: Jardin d'Amalfi, Meringa, 1861 Renaissance
    Fall: Dior Homme, APOM. Reflection Man
    Winter: Enigma Pour Homme, Richwood, Roja UAE/ Boclet Tobacco

    Of course these aren't what I wear the most given the astronomical prices of some, but these are probably my favorite for each season in my collection.
