What makes a fragrance a "Winter" fragrance? Since fragrance is so subjective, the answer will vary with whomever you ask. During the colder months of the year, people generally want to feel warmth and depth in their fragrance. The bolder and more intense fragrances help ease the Winter chill. These include Spicy, Orientals (warming and exotic) and deeper richer Florals. Of course anyone can wear anything and that is why I love fragrance combining with Jo Malone's arc of cologne, so that I can customize my own personal seasonal scent.
This Winter, I have been experimenting with several new favorite combinations. As a rule of thumb, when you fragrance combine with Jo Malone, you should consider spraying the warmer scent on first. Once dry (20 seconds), you can spray the lighter/fresher fragrance on second. This way, you won't smoother the lighter fragrance. After the fragrances dry down a bit, you will be able to smell the aroma you have created. Once you find a combination you love, try experimenting further with two sprays of the first and one of the second scent. Or reverse it by spraying one of the stronger scent and two of the lighter scent. These slight modifications will change the fragrance and tailor it specifically to your preferences. I am including a list of my favorite Winter fragrance combinations below.
