Winter Fragrances for Men - We give you the lowdown!

Winter Fragrances for Men - We give you the lowdown!
Winter is fast approaching, and as you take out your winter woolies and update your wardrobe, it is also the ideal time to relook at your fragrances as well. Winter fragrances are all introducing those heavier, sweeter, spicier, and far more potent scents. Those light summer fragrances can soon be packed away in a safe, dark place away from the heat and humidity - the back of a cupboard shelf is the ideal spot. But back to winter fragrances and all of their glory.

Why do you need a winter fragrance?

Winter is a time of low temperatures and dry air, and your fragrance needs to keep up. During summer months, temperatures are higher, and our bodies heat up and produce sweat which helps those lighter fragrances, but during the winter, we need a stronger fragrance with warm, woody, and spicy notes to cut through the cold air.

What are winter notes?

As we said, winter is all about those heavier, sweeter, spicier, and far more potent scents. Knowing which notes to look out for can be confusing but don’t worry we have got you covered!
Woody notes like Cedar, Guaiac Wood, Oakmoss, Oud, Patchouli, and Sandalwood are the most common base notes found in winter fragrances.
Fragrance notes like Amber, Leather, and Musk always add that winter touch. And finally, when it comes to oriental notes and resins, base notes like Benzoin, Vanilla, Incense, Myrrh, Labdanum, and Elemi are perfect for that winter scent.

Here are some of our favorites!


Acqua di Parma

Our Acqua di Parma range is the perfect place to start. Renowned for embodying discreet luxu-ry through its elegant fragrance, it is the epitome of Italian savoir-faire and refinement. A great choice for winter is Acqua Di Parma Leather Eau de Parfum; intensely charismatic, the unfor-gettable deep and aromatic composition combines the elegant and original leather accord with notes of Brazilian orange, Sicilian lime, rose, and petitgrain.
Another one of our favourites is Acqua Di Parma Oud & Spice Parfum - it is the opulent scent of Oud enhanced by vibrant and luminous citrus notes. The enveloping notes of Oud are distilled and combined with the warm, spicy tones of Cinnamon and Cloves, revealing an unexpected creation.


The Amouage range is not known as the “Gift of Kings’ for nothing, and when it comes to winter, you can’t beat their Amouage Boundless Eau de Parfum. Think amber, woody, and spicy, with notes of cardamom, ginger, vanilla bourbon, and frankincense, to mention a few; it is a winter fragrance explosion.
Amouage Epic Man Eau de Parfum is a woody oriental fragrance evoking the many legends of the ancient Silk Road journey from China to Arabia, With notes like Frankincense, Saffron, Nutmeg, Myrtle Essence, Oud, and Cedarwood, Musk you can see why it's the perfect choice.

In conclusion

It's winter and time to wrap up warmly while never compromising on style or quality. And the same goes for your fragrance; think warm, spicy, and heady notes that cut through the cold air leaving trails of your signature scent behind you.
