Choosing a perfume is not easy, especially if you always go for the same one. But it’s always good to be open to new fragrances. The smell of your perfume will be the social indicator of you so, it’s good to check the options before you buy it.
In winter, it’s better to go for a bit heavier scents, because in cold weather, fragrance odors disappear and evaporate faster. Therefore, you can prefer woody and spicy fragrances. We can call winter perfumes as more alcohol-containing ones and they mostly carry amber, cinnamon, musk, pumpkin, woody and spicy fragrances. Although more intense ones are preferred in winter, also avoid using very heavy odors in daily life. It’s important to use the right perfume in the right place and time. Not every perfume will smell the same on every skin. To make sure the scent will match with your skin, consider trying it on your wrist first.
Perfumes contain top notes, middle notes and base notes. The base note has the biggest impact on the fragrance. To choose your winter perfume, you can check which base note they have.
Here are some suggestions from me and I hope you will like them!
