Our perfume aficionado Adriana Ermter’s top five fragrant winter picks to spritz on right now…
Adding a new scent (or five) to your fragrance wardrobe is the beauty equivalent to wearing Fall/Winter’s fashionable oversized Celine bags, zebra print Dolce & Gabbana dresses, chicly cozy Yeezy puffy coats and rainbow-hued Armani sunglasses. After all it’s a new season. Plus, perfume doesn’t evaporate as quickly in colder weather, so your lighter, fresher scents won’t be as noticeable, meaning you need to kick your spritzing up a notch.
Here are five timely fragrances to rotate into your daily routine now.
Burberry, Her EDP
Warm and sunny with an infusion of sweet and juicy berries, this heady parfum features lush jasmine and violet flowers complete with a glowing, musky dry down. Burberry, Her EDP is $107 for 50 ml and $142 for 100 ml, available at Hudson’s Bay.
Calvin Klein, Women EDP
An intimate musky, woody floral that embodies the depth of Nina Simone and the luminosity of Lupita Nyong’o. The eau opens with fresh eucalyptus, spicy black pepper and tart citrus before being swirled into a mélange of white flowers, dry cedar and warm ambrox. Calvin Klein, Women EDP is $92 for 50ml and $119 for 100 ml, available at Hudson’s Bay.
Chanel, Venise EDT
The French couture house never makes a mistake and this elegant, new oriental fragrance is no exception, courtesy of its fresh and sensual blend of neroli, amber and vanilla. Chanel, Venise is $177.99 for 125 ml, available at Nordstrom.
Miu Miu, Fleur D’Argent
Miuccia Prada and perfumer Daniela Andrier’s Fleur D’Argent, in the fourth in the Miu Miu collection of dazzling floral bouquets and features the sensual tuberose flower. Balancing theses lush white petals are sultry musk and dry akigala wood. Miu Miu, Fleur D’Argent EDP is $105 for 50ml and $150 for 100 ml, available at Sephora.
Thierry Mugler, Alien Flora Futura EDT
Creamy and soft with fresh and sparkling notes, this gourmand scent smells as mysterious as it does enticing. Budha wood and tart citrus open the eau, before easing into opulent cactus flower. Warm amber and smooth sandalwood complete the fragrance. Thierry Mugler, Alien Flora Futura EDT is $94 for 60ml, available at Sephora.
