How to Smell Like a Snow Queen - Beautiful Perfumes to Wear This Winter

27 comments
Winter Perfume 1

Taking the seasons into account when it comes to perfume is something of a new thing for me. I've always had a fondness for floral fragrances, and in the past I've tended to wear my favourite scents all year round. Lately, though, I've been branching out and trying different things, and I've noticed myself reaching for the perfumes in my collection that have more warmth and depth to them now that the weather is colder. I thought I would share those with you, as well as mention a couple of others I don't happen to own right now but think are perfect for this time of year.

Winter Perfume 2 - Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium

Black Opium - Yves Saint Laurent

Before I owned this fragrance, I lusted after it for the longest time, gazing at it longingly every time I popped into Boots and dropping countless hints to my husband/mum/sister/whoever happened to be with me at the time about upcoming birthdays, etc. I wound up being given both the original and the eau de toilette last Christmas, and then for good measure received the Nuit Blanche version at a press day a few months later. All three are gorgeous, but if I had to single one out as the most "wintry", I'd go for the original. A heady mix of black coffee, white florals and vanilla, it's a strong, sexy and highly addictive fragrance.

Winter Perfume 3 - Michael Buble By Invitation

By Invitation - Michael Buble

Christmas without Michael Buble is like the tree without fairy lights. Well, maybe not, but this gorgeous fragrance definitely lends itself beautifully to the winter months. With sparkling red fruit top notes and a warm base of amber and vanilla praline, this is definitely going to be my go-to scent for Christmas parties this year. I wrote a detailed review of it here in case you'd like to know more.

Winter Perfume 4 - Jo Malone Mimosa and Cardamom

Mimosa and Cardamom  - Jo Malone

Ah, Jo Malone - the queen of fragrance. I love everything she does. Mimosa and Cardamom surprised me - I thought it was going to be strong and spicy, but instead it's quite delicate. This is definitely an all year rounder - light and fresh enough to wear through the summer, but with a beautiful creamy depth that seems to work perfectly in the colder months as well. While we're on the subject of Jo Malone, there's another two perfumes from the brand that I don't currently own but think are perfect for winter. One is Amber and Lavender -  musky, opulent and exotic - and the other is Pomegranate Noir, which is possibly the most sophisticated sweet fragrance I have ever come across, laced with the faintest hint of spice.

Winter Perfume 5 - Miller Harris Vetiver Insolent

Vetiver Insolent  - Miller Harris

The strongest and most distinctive perfume I own, winter is a great time for this to come into its own. Again, I reviewed it here if you're interested in checking it out in more detail, but essentially this is an earthy, spicy combination of bergamot, amber, vetiver and tonka bean. If you like your perfumes to be a talking point and/or totally unique, this is one for you.

  1. I haven't tried any of these but I love the sound of Michael Buble one, didn't even know he had a scent out! I tend to wear scents depending on time of day and events. At the moment I'm loving Decadence by Marc Jacobs, it lasts for ages!

  13. I find that I veer towards warmer, spicier scents in winter too. I always go back to Victor & Rolf Flowerbomb and Calvin Klein Euphoria. I'll have to smell Black Opium! xx
