    Either very gourmand choices like LIDGE and Rochas Man or with a strong powerhouse and/or woody component like various 70-80s fragrances, including in their vintage versions, on the resinous, tobacco and/or piney side like Van Cleef & Arpels pour Homme, Santos, Antaeus, Floris Elite, Roger & Gallet Open, Bois du Portugal

    I don't know, I think perhaps Seducteur by Micallef. I've worn Fille en Aiguilles so much in other kinds of weather that it has kind of lost that association (it still reminds me of snow, but not Christmas). Burberry London reminds me more of fall/autumn in the city, rather than Christmas specifically.

    Incense fragrances remind me of Christmas. I always wear an incense scent on Christmas day.

    The new remake(?) of Winter by Dasein smells just like a Christmas Yankee Candle, the one combining conifer and sugar plums. Not really one I want to smell on my skin. Would rather burn the candle. But it’s a very Christmasy smell.

    You're referring to Winter Nights by Dasein and it is the bomb!

    The 'Holiday' scent of spices and sweetness seems to be quite an American thing. Pumpkin pie, cinnamon, baked apples etc, but it's not group of smells I, personally, associate with that time of year.

    To me, the most evocative scent of Christmas was the smell of oranges in a church, with candle wax warming it up. No fragrance comes close to that smell, nor could it capture the emotion of it.

    Grand Soir mostly because I wore my decant of it to hell last Christmas.
    Burberry London +334234
    Patchouli Nobile Nobile 1942 again because I wore the hell of it last Christmas. Perfect for a cold winter day lounging inside.
    L'Artisan Tea For Two smoky spicy gingerbready tobacco and tea, one of my all time favorites
    SL Chergui smells like an early December day
    PDM Oajan cinnamon and honey, smells like a tray of Christmas baklava
    Phaedon Tabac Rouge +1 very much an updated Tobacco Vanille, with the Christmasy pomander vibe to boot
    Diptyque 34 Boulevard Saint Germaine EDP Very dusky/dusty, more of an autumnal scent but it still puts me in a Christmas mood
    Guerlain Santal Royal another I wore a lot of last Christmas, it smells incredibly opulent and regal and goes perfectly with the atmosphere of Christmas...grand parties, bejewled cities, glasses of wine gilded by the lights, people in winter coats and scarves coming in from the cold, etc.
    Mugler Pure Tonka gourmand heaven, reminds me of eating a pancake breakfast on Christmas day (one of my family's traditions)
    Bottega Veneta Pour Homme Extreme pine, spice, and supple leather

    I'll have to try out an incense fragrance for this upcoming holiday season. I'm not from a religious family, so burning incense around that time is not in my arsenal of Christmas olfactory associations.
