It gets so hot here in NOLA that I save a few fragrance favorites for the winter just because to me– they seem too heavy with the hot, humid, summer air. These are some of my all time favorites that I use every winter. (I am not great at describing scents so I’ll leave that to Sephora)
Balenciaga – Balenciaga Paris
As the scent opens, an airy bouquet of violets is set against the antique charm of dried petals found between the pages of a book. Traces of past memories turn to the present as a peppery note swells over a calm trace of mossy wood. A scent that breathes in the secret hours of night, it is mysterious and fragile—yet leaves a lasting trail.
Violet Leaf, Pepper, Cedarwood, Patchouli, Vetiver.
Light. Mysterious. Antique.
I absolutely love this perfume. A little goes a long way and it lasts all day. The first time I ever sprayed this perfume on me I was shopping in Sephora. I sprayed one spray and didn’t think much of it– but as I was shopping around the mall, I kept getting whiffs of it and by the time I left the mall I was sold!
Jimmy Choo – Jimmy Choo
Luminous green top notes join a heart of rich and exotic tiger orchid and lingering base notes of sweet toffee and Indonesian patchouli to leave a sensual memory on the skin.
Green, Tiger Orchid, Toffee, Sensual Indonesian Patchouli.
Feminine. Luxurious. Stylish.
This perfume smells so warm and cozy to me, that’s why I love wearing it in the fall/winter. I just love wearing this with a big, cozy, chunky sweater!
Chanel – Chance
A decidedly young scent for those who dare to dream. A light, subtly sensual fragrance, filled with vitality and energy, evolves from one moment to the next, each wholly unique. – (The Sephora website doesn’t list the notes for this one.)
This is a light scent but a little strong for during hot summer days. I do love this perfume for a night out though. This is definitely a “getting dressed up” perfume for me and the perfect complement to a fancy dress.
Something to definitely keep in mind is that each perfume will smell different on everyone. When I first sprayed the Balenciaga Paris perfume, I wasn’t impressed but as it meshed with my body chemistry I loved it more and more. Definitely go to the mall or your nearest department store and try them out on yourself before you invest.
