These Are The Top Fragrance Notes To Wear In Cooler Weather

After a long, balmy summer, the temperature is starting to drop as we enter winter. Yup, winter is here. 


While the weather might be cold, you can still smell hot this season by wearing warm, cosy fragrance notes. Here are five to try.

1. Vanilla

This fragrance note features in many fragrances, especially those that fall into the gourmand family, which features sweet and confectionary notes. The essence made from this plant is popular in baking to give items a subtle flavour. It evokes a warm, cosy and comforting feeling, which is what makes it a great choice for cool-weather spritzing.

2. Amber

Another note which features a lot throughout the fragrance world is amber. It actually isn’t a specific note, but rather an umbrella term for (mostly) the warm and balsamic notes of different types of resins that are harvested from tree bark. These are generally sweet, with caramel and honey nuances, which work well in cold temperatures.

3. Warm spices

This is another broad category that is made up of several fragrance notes, including cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and cardamom. Like vanilla, they are edible notes that we associate with food, especially ones enjoyed over the festive period (because they celebrate Christmas in winter up north). This also makes them cosy and able to radiate warm vibes.

4. Sandalwood

At least one of your fave fragrances probably features sandalwood as a base note, that’s how much people love it! It’s also commonly burnt as incense. Considered a sacred wood in India, where it originates, it has a sweet, milky scent that has a distinctive quality to it. Found in both men’s and women’s perfumes, it has broad appeal.

5. Tobacco

It might sound odd, but tobacco notes do *not* smell like a filthy ashtray! They are instead extracted from the dried tobacco flower and are warm, rich and sweet with hints of whiskey, caramel and hay and a slightly smoky edge. The depth of tobacco is enhanced when blended with gourmand, spicy and floral notes.
