When asking what kind of perfumes should I wear in winter, the real question is which scents will evoke the seasonal fragrances and moods. In the summer, light perfumes always claim to elicit memories of warm days on the beach enjoying the sun and water. The fragrances are fruity or reminiscent of spring and summer flowers.
Winter perfumes, on the other hand, tend to be a bit heavier and evoke images of cool autumn and crisp winter days. Instead of remembering when you were lying on the beach, you think of taking a long walk through fallen leaves or snuggling in a warm coat.
In the winter, most people wear more and heavier clothes. Unlike spring and summer, there’s not as much skin exposed. Perfumes worn in the winter should be able to overcome being mostly covered up with clothing, and that’s one reason the scents tend to be a bit stronger. The musk scent is a great example of a heavier scent more appropriate for winter than for summer.
Winter perfumes have scents that reflect the scents of the holidays and cold winter days also. For example, the scents may have a woody flair or remind the wearer of holiday desserts made with vanilla beans. Winter perfumes are usually sparsely worn so the scent is not overpowering. A winter perfume scent should be a subtle scent that makes the wearer think of sexy warmth.
What kind of perfumes should I wear in winter? When you ask that question, the answer is to wear one that works distinctly for you. The same scent will produce a different result on each person. What smells good on one person may smell entirely different on your body. When choosing a winter perfume scent, select those scents which remind you of the season.
