    Default Christmas in a bottle! Which fragrance and why?

    I love the feeling I get when I wear Burberry London... It just smells like decorating trees or walking in cold weather.

    Rive Gauche reminds me of reading Christmas books as a child with my grandfather.

    What other fragrances really embodies Christmas for you?

    Agree with Burberry London, but cannot at all agree with Rive Gauche pour Homme.

    Burberry London, of course. Also, Ralph Lauren's discontinued Purple Label smells like Christmas to me.

    Eau des Baux. Randomly asked for a fragrance that would smell good in the winter and ended up with a bottle of this under the tree. It will forever remind me of Christmas now.

    Serge Lutens Un Bois Vanille for sure. Also Fou d'Absinthe smelled like gingerbread to me.

    For me it is Polo Modern Reserve. as an adolescent, I had bad luck with fragrances, in sixth grade I tried to wear original Polo during the holidays, some spilled in my backpack and it permeAted the whole thing, made me self conscious. I only wore it for a couple of days before dismissing it. A year after that I purchased Drakkar Noir, it came with a defected sprayer, and I never returned it, therefore I never wore it. IMO Polo Modern Reserve represents both of these fragrances and I grew attached to it immediately after the first full wearing, i have made it a point to wear it every Thanksgiving , and Christmas since 2008.

    Puredistance M is it. Strangely enough Sycomore also feels Christmasy. I never thought of TV as a Christmas frag, but now that it was said, I can't see how it isn't!

    I think the normal version of L'Instant smells Christmassy, Habit Rouge a little as well. Chergui and Fillle en Aiguilles too.

    Burberry London I wear for Christmas Day, but for holiday social events it will vary. Tonight it will be Tobacco Vanille.

    Burberry London ofc. I would add Givenchy Pi, to me its the nice vanilla and almond vibe that you get during christmass dinners.

    It's just Burberry London the one you mentioned for me. Because it smells like Xmas because of the port wine scent within it's composition I cannot wear it at any other-time.
