On a day like today where the temperature has hit the mid to low 30’s  and winter finally decided to show up, it inspires you to finally bring out those scents that you reserve for the colder months of the year. The warmth, the comfort these scents bring to me is something I look forward to every winter, and although you can wear these scents any time of the year if you choose to do so, for me, the notes truly sing during the sweater weather months. Below are a few recommendation of scents that I personally feel are perfect for this time of year. Some old fragrances that every year I love wearing, and some newer ones to explore.

Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker
A warm close to your skin type of scent that screams feminity with class.
Notes; mandarin, bergamot, rosewood, lavender and apple Martini,  patchouli, paper whites and orchid, cedar wood, white amber, and sultry musk’s and woods.

Cashmere Mist by Donna Karan
This scent gives one the feeling of wrapping a comfortable warm blanket all around you. It’s sensual, soft with a touch of powdery that can be very feminine.
Notes; Lily of the Valley, Suede Notes, Bergamot, Ylang Ylang, Jasmine Maroc, Sandalwood, Orris, Amber, Vanilla, Cedarwood, Patchouli, Musk.

Sensuous by Estee Lauder
This is a fragrance that I start to wear once the weather starts to change in the fall. It is the scent of the holidays for me, it’s spicy, sexy, warm and feminine.
Notes; magnolia, ghost lily accord, honey molten woods, jasmine petals, sandalwood, amber, juicy mandarin pulp, black pepper
Angel by Thierry Mugler
This fragrance was very popular back when it was launched in 1992, it seemed like every woman was wearing it and you couldn’t go very far without smelling it on someone. It is one of those scents that is so addictive, delicious but you either hate it or love it. It is warm and sexy, with a touch of flirty and fun. Great scent for this time of year.
Notes; Bergamot, Hedione, Helional, Honey, Dewberry, Red Berries, Vanilla, Caramel, Patchouli, Chocolate, Coumarin. 

Nirvana Black by Elizabeth and James
Nirvana Black can be worn on its own or with its counterpart Nirvana White. Although you can wear both of them together during this time of year, alone Nirvana Black is perfect for those winter mornings when the chill in the air makes you wish you never left your home. It is soft, woody with a soft sandalwood scent that is warm and sensual. The vanilla gives it a softness that is needed to make the fragrance just perfect for those cold days.
Notes; Violet, Sandalwood, Vanilla. 

Black Orquid by Tom Ford
Mysterious, sexy with a touch of classy glamour is how I describe this scent. It is the one you want to wear when you are out on the town during the colder months.
Notes; Black Truffle, Black Orchid, Black Plum, Noir Gourmand Accord, Patchouli. 

 Narcisso Rodriguez For Her
This scent was created for the woman who is confident, feminine and wants you to get closer and closer to her in a sweet embrace. It is a scent that explores a woman’s skin with floral notes, amber and musk.
Notes; Honey Flower, Solar Musk, Orange Blossom, Osmanthus, Amberlyn, Vanilla, Tactile Musk, Tactile Woods, Vetiver.
