3 Must-Have Scents To Wear This Winter

Azeez Jacobs says add a zest of olfactory appeal this winter

Tom Ford Black Orchid

One of the trailblazers in masculine fragrances: complex, long-lasting and unmistakeably unforgettable. A luxurious and sensual fragrance of rich, dark accords and an alluring potion of black orchids and spices. That’s the smell of beauty that stays on you for hours.

Gucci Intense Oud

Displayed in a smoky glass bottle topped with a gold cap—once you remove the cap, the smell of frankincense is the first note to hit your nose— a prized and historic perfume-making ingredient. Its everything you want in an oud fragrance. It lasts for hours and it just gets monumentally better as it ages after the first spray. Intense Oud is worth owning, this is far more wearable and smoother to my nose.

Versace Eros

A clear reference to the Mediterranean and its lifestyle, a fragrance that is not afraid to flaunt itself. There’s nothing mellow about Versace’s Eros. Its unapologetic minty-vanilla scent lets everyone know you’re about to make a statement.

Oud is traditionally a Arabic ingredient in perfumes. It is a woody smell that ranges from sweet to earthy, with some notes of leather and spices and is derived from tree resin.
