Thank goodness for winter – the time we can finally snuggle up with the best new scents. And we can’t wait to introduce you to the top fragrances that have just hit the shelves. Read on to find your perfect perfume, depending on your winter style…
Your winter style: Razzle dazzle
If you love all things sparkles, glitter and metallic, look no further – you’re rocking the razzle dazzle vibe this winter. And yes, it can be pretty hard to pull off, but our advice is to go ALL OUT. We’re talking knee-high boots with sequin dresses and crystal mesh practically everywhere. So it would be rude not to wear our favourite new dazzling scents on the scene – Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Glacé (fit for any ice queen at only £39 for 30ml, £50 for 50ml or £70 for 100ml), which oozes pear sorbet, vanilla and blackcurrant buds, or for guys, we recommend Paco Rabanne Pure XS – an indulgent and excessive blend of ginger, vanilla and myrrh (£47 for 50ml or £64.50 for 100ml).
Your winter style: Leather all the way
Who says you can’t look sexy at winter? Noone. That’s why leather is the way forward this winter, with designers such as Alexander McQueen and YSL rocking black leather and brown off-the-shoulder dresses to the max. We love how hardcore this style looks, that’s why we suggest you couple it with the new Jean Paul Gaultier Scandal (black leather trousers and a corset top is the perfect match) – the sexiest launch of the year, which mixes honey with blood orange and patchouli for only £44 for 30ml, £63.50 for 50ml or £83 for 80ml. Guys can up their leather game by spritzing Diesel Bad Intense (£48 for 50ml or £67 for 125ml), which was made to be worn with a leather jacket. It features notes of nutmeg, caviar and vanilla bean. You can’t get more wintery feels than that.
Your winter style: Wrapped up warm
Let’s get real now. We’re all more concerned about keeping warm this winter than anything else. So if you’re more of a scarf and wooly hat fan, you’ll love the big quilted jacket trend of A/W17 (sported by Stella McCartney and Coach). The best bit about the trend? There are two perfect scents to match that warm and fuzzy feeling. We’re talking about Hugo Boss The Scent For Her Intense (£48 for 30ml or £69 for 50ml), which mixes honeyed peach, vanilla and cocoa for a rich and bold smell. And of course the matching Hugo Boss The Scent For Him Intense (£54 for 50ml or £72 for 100ml) works its magic by blending leather and ginger for an ultra sexy effect. Wow.
