    Default favorite Christmas fragrances?

    I know it's a little early but what fragrance do you think evokes the perfect Christmas vibe? Warm, cheerful, sugary? What would a guy in a cable-knit sweater wiith a cup of hot chocolate be wearing by the fire?

    And for some reason Colonia Leather - doesn’t need to be gourmand for me. Deep, rich perfumes like this remind me of shopping in department stores at Christmastime.

    Valentino Uomo Intense, Salvatore Ferragamo Uomo, Replica By the Fireplace, TF Noir Extreme, Mugler Pure Tonka, and Bvlgari Man in Black (not because it particularly reminds me of Christmas, I just wear it a lot around then).

    Kind of cliche but nevertheless.. Burberry London will always be my #1 for that time of year. Although I don't celebrate Christmas, if i am around others who do, or at gatherings, it feels fitting to go with that. Some others i particularly enjoy around that time of year: Polo, Esencia, Corduroy, Jacomo de Jacomo Rouge, Banderas Spirit, Michael Kors, 24 Gold, Itasca.

    Here in Australia at Xmas? Probably a straight jacket.

    For a white Xmas I would be wearing Spice and Wood or Straight to Heaven.

    Gee, I am not really sure. Maybe Vanilla Bean Noel?

    Here's my Christmas line-up.

    Fille en Aiguilles by Serge Lutens: This one is incredible and has it all. Pine and Christmas cake/spices.

    Norne by Slumberhouse: Ahh...Christmas around the campfire in a grove of fir trees.

    Good Fir 11 by Krigler: The smell of fir trees and fir flavored smarties candies.

    Blood Cedar: by Heretic Parfums: The smell of going into the mountains to cut down your own Christmas tree!

    Vert d' Encens by Tom Ford: Just enough conifer to make you think of a Christmas vibe, with a sweetness that makes you think of candy.

    Ancient Resins by Aftelier: Frankincense and Balm of Gilead. Feels like Christmas to me.

    07 Tanoke by Odin NY: Frankincense, orange and clove. Reminds me of Christmas.

    Tobacco Vanille by Tom Ford: Smells like an amazing Potpourri, especially in the opening.

    Parfums de Marly Herod by far.

    Followed by some sweet woody fireplace scents, such as Memoirs of a Tresspasser. Tobacco Vanille might work fine too.
