Our favourite fragrances for winter
In the same way that new knits and boots make the transition to winter a little easier, so too can switching to a new perfume. Embrace the cooler temps with a scent that’s warm, woody and comforting. Here are six fragrances to wrap yourself in this winter…
Narciso Rodriguez NARCISO eau de toilette, 50mL, $109
Available June 1 from Myer and David Jones
Winter and this perfume are the perfect match. With notes of white peony, Bulgarian rose, a heady white floral bouquet and traces of musk, this composition warms the heart. With the addition of black and white cedars, this scent is hypnotising, seductive and mysterious.
Jo Malone Amber & Patchouli Cologne, 100mL, $230
The blend of sensuous patchouli and opulent amber in this fragrance is rich and woody, with a suede-like finish and a spicy bite. Just one sniff of the Jo Malone Amber & Patchouli cologne, and you’ll be transported to a Middle Eastern getaway that’ll take the edge off those frosty mornings.
Marc Jacobs Mod Noir, 50mL, $130
Available from June 18 exclusively at Sephora
As if the quirky bottle wasn’t gorgeous enough, this fragrance combines notes of gardenia with lush, dewy greens, sparkling water and creamy musk. It’s a fusion of simplicity and sophistication, and though the gardenia is intoxicating, the overall scent isn’t overpowering.
Guerlain Shalimar Souffle De Parfum, 50mL, $135
Available from Myer, David Jones and selected Pharmacies
Vanilla is a staple in winter perfumes, and this new scent by Guerlain has more than its fair share. Blending vanillas from India and Tahiti, it has the lighter, more floral notes that are elegant and feminine as well as the darker, woodier overtones that convey a sense of mystery and sensuality. Add mimose, tuberose, vetiver, spices and sambac jasmine, and you’ve got a cascade of creamy white musks that are so ideal for winter.
Vera Wang Embrace Rosebuds & Vanilla EDT 30ml $39
Available from July at Chemist Warehouse
Thanks to its floral blend of rose buds, sweet magnolia, vanilla and sandalwood, this is one for the romantics. It’s a beautifully feminine fragrance that lingers on the skin and is inspired by intimacy and emotion. The warm, finishing touch of this fragrance is like a blanket - spritz away!
