My top pick is to not have any winter, at least not winter as we know it here in the North East. But I do love dark and stormy perfumes, especially when applied in quantities that would get one horrified looks on warmer times. Here are my top ten perfume picks for the season that refuses to go away, divided into several categories:
Keep Me Warm- this is self explanatory. Smoldering perfumes that radiate heat.
Annick Goutal- Ambre Fetiche
Vero Profumo- Onda
Cozy Nights at Home (aka "my cabin fever is about to make me go postal"). Soft and cuddly perfumes to take the edge off.
Parfumerie Generale- Felanilla
Givenchy- Organza Indecence
Anywhere But Here. I can close my eyes and pretend that I'm not in Narnia, NJ.
Mona di Orio- Eau Absolue
If You Can't Beat Them (perfumes that evoke the weather). Crisp air, crunchy snow under your feet.
As Picked By The Husband:
Slumberhouse- Ore. Chocolate & booze from the Pacific Northwest.
Guerlain- Songe d'un Bois d'Été. A spicy smoky leather oud.
Please visit Bois de Jasmin, Grain de Musc, Now Smell This, and Perfume Posse for more winter perfume picks.
