Many people have one signature scent that they wear all year round, year in and year out. But we suggest changing your signature scent each season, because different ingredients work better in different seasons, for instance; fresh and tropical scents are perfect for Summer. Floral scents go well with Spring, and Autumn is about pushing the boundaries with seductive scents.
While Winter is all about cozy scents that are warm and rich, reminding you of your spicy vanilla latte, warm cinnamon crepes, or an aged cognac in your leather recliner.
Steps to choosing the perfect Winter fragrance for you:
- Step 1: Go Heavy
During colder months, scents fade faster, so your light notes simply will not do. Choose heavy notes that will stick to your skin longer.
- Step 2: Pay attention to Base Notes:
Base notes are important during Winter. Perfumes consist of top, middle, and base notes. Top and middle notes fade faster and it’s the base notes that linger on your skin. Choose perfumes that have warm and spicy base notes. Look for ingredients like cedarwood, sandalwood, benzoin, vanilla and incense
- Step 3: Think about Oriental & Woody Notes.
The oriental perfume family is all about rich, spicy, sticky notes. When you think oriental, think opulent, and heady with lots of spices, vanilla, sweet notes and resins that last all day.
The woody perfume family consists of grounded, warm, luxurious notes. It is aromatic, earthy, smokey and leathery.
So, follow the trend this Winter. Take out your turtlenecks and dust off your Winter coats. Apply your bright crimson lipstick and go and buy your perfect Winter fragrance from only R110.
