    Welcome!

    I have not been to London in a long while, so not sure what the environment is like nowadays.

    But anyway, dangerous and badass for the winter-I'm thinking leathers. For instance, Etat Libre d'Orange Rien Incense Intense (a very animalic leather), or Dior Leather Oud (also a bit animalic, and strong).

    The cool weather in London is perfect for leathers, sandalwoods and darker scents in general.

    It’s tragic to think that heroic man’s great destiny is to become economic man, that men will be reduced to craven creatures who crawl across the globe competing for money, who spend their nights dreaming up new ways to swindle each other.

    Aramis Tobacco Reserve

    Costume National Homme--this was one I didn't love sampling but I can see if someone likes cloves and a heavier scent how it would work in cold weather

    Genuinely, I really like London by Tom Ford. Nice and spicy but wearable and a bit different. Nothing to do with London in the grand scheme of things, but try it out if you haven't.
