Although the holidays are behind us, the Winter season is far from over. When it’s so cold and unsettled outside, all we want to feel is warmth and coziness by wrapping ourselves in blankets like burritos. However, comfy clothes are not the only way to satisfy that craving. The perfect solution for when you are out and about or at home is to surround yourself with scents that make you feel good! And believe me… The 4 top winter fragrances that I have for you will do just that!
Killian – Angels’ Share
Scent: Oriental Vanilla with cognac top note.
Vibes: Spicy, Boozy, and Sexy.
Oh, guys, this is a good one! I am still flabbergasted about how much I love this scent! Angels’ Share fragrance is the product of a collaboration between Benoist Lapouza and Killian Hennessy. Yep, that’s right! Hennessy from the worldwide cognac brand, Hennessy. This fragrance was inspired by the liquors that reflect Killian’s heritage – this is clearly shown not only by the beautiful, refined glass bottle but also by its scent. Angels’ Share has a spicy, boozy, and oriental vanilla fragrance that is suitable for men and women. When the scent hits your skin, it has a very alluring and sexy vibe to it. It is a very warm and rich scent with middle notes of cinnamon and oak. Also, the added cognac top note manages to set this scent apart from any other!
Definitely, one of the best releases of 2020!
Maison Margiela – Replica By The Fireplace
Scent: Fruity and Spicy with Pink Pepper Top Notes
Vibes: Woody, Smoky, and Sweet
By the Fireplace is a gorgeous ‘bottled memory of burning wood and chestnut’. It is made with fruity, spicy, sharp top notes of pink pepper.
This fragrance will give you an amazingly warm and inviting feeling with spicy and woody top notes balanced with vanilla base notes. I will say that this scent is for people that resonate with woody, smoky notes because it is something that will not die down 100% – it does become subtler over time but still remains present. By The Fireplace can really take you back to those cozy moments in front of a fireplace. Every time I spray this, it brings me back memories of when I went camping last year with my husband and kids. It was the first time we did real outdoor camping, and with this fragrance, it is lovely to have those memories rush back to me.
Bear in mind that this is a very strong, bold scent – you only need the tiniest amount because it clings to your clothes like nothing else!
Christian Dior – Feve Delicieuse
Scent: Refined Top Note of Tonka Bean with Smoky Vanilla notes.
Vibes: Cozy, Warm, & Powdery
This, right here my friends, is the ultimate winter fragrance! This will give you cozy, warmth, and deliciousness vibes all over. Feve Delicieuse is a beautiful, refined winter fragrance with the top tone of tonka bean and slightly smoky notes of vanilla. It has all the feels for sitting right beside the fireplace, drinking something warm, wrapped in a cozy winter sweater. Contrary to what most reviews say, I don’t think this is a sexy fragrance. I rather think of it as a very comforting beautiful scent! It will not go well with a sexy, date night but it will with an indoor, Netflix, and Chill kind of night with your loved one. I must say two sprays of this bad boy are more than enough to last forever in your skin.
Sadly this scent has become very hard to find in Canada as unfortunately, the Dior website does not ship out Fragrances. The best option is to call your local Saks fifth and ask if you can order via phone.
Thierry Mugler – Angel Muse
Scent: Coco, patchouli, sweet, intense
Vibes: Gourmand, sweet, cozy, sexy
Angel Muse is the type of fragrance I can use all day, every day during the Winter season! And it is the perfect true gourmand scent – when we think about chocolate in a gourmand scent, this goes ALL the way there! This fragrance has such a beautiful scent composed of grapefruit and pink pepper top notes accompanied by hazelnut and cocoa heart notes.
When you spray it, it definitely highlights the cocoa, hazelnut, and patchouli. The opening of the scent is very fresh but when it dries, the hazelnut and cocoa start opening up and the smell is absolutely gorgeous! The patchouli is very present in the scent, which is something that I love! It definitely helps ground the fragrance, giving it more texture and character because no one wants a fragrance that only smells like chocolate. Overall, it is creamy, rich, textured and it smells yummy in a sophisticated way.
