Words: Lauren Carbran
What do you love most about winter? Is it the hot choccies by the fire, the cold, crisp walks in the snow or the sweet, warm aroma of your new winter scent? For us, it’s all of them, but we admit our absolute favourite thing to celebrate the new season is to stock up on a brand-new perfume...
THE PERFUME EDIT PEPPERED EARTH FOR HER & FOR HIM
This needs to be your statement winter pick if you love sustainable beauty. Vegan, unisex and 100% recyclable, it blends rose, leather and musk for a bold, smoky effect. While we’re bagging this, we’ll also be snagging the second fragrance in The Perfume Shop’s exclusive range, Citrus Fresco, which is created with fresh, powerful hints of lemon, lavender and rosemary that’ll sparkle on your skin from AM to PM, no matter what you get up to this winter.
ARIANA GRANDE THANK U, NEXT FOR HER
It’s syrupy sweet, it’s girl power in a bottle and, um, it’s ARIANA GRANDE’S SEVENTH PERFUME CREATION. We could go on about this for hours, but all you really need to know is that it’s inspired by Ariana Grande’s smash hit, Thank U, Next, and is the nation’s heartbreak anthem in a bottle. And in what’s major news to noses all around the world, you’ll have the delight of smelling of macaroon sugar, pear, cream of coconut and pink rose petals. We just want to cosy up with this forever. Make sure you also opt for her top fragrance, Cloud (cream of coconut, praline and vanilla orchid).
YSL LIBRE FOR HER
In need of a signature scent for winter that’s suitable for all seasons? YSL Libre is your go-to. The new fragrance, with Dua Lipa as its face, is a seriously sophisticated, floral-heavy blend of French lavender and Moroccan orange blossom. Nothing beats the elegant gold bottle, which is a piece of art in itself. We’re also going for the YSL Click Shine On perfume pen, the latest way of applying the Black Opium fragrance (coffee, orange blossom and vanilla) with just the click of a pen.
HUGO BOSS THE SCENT ABSOLUTE FOR HIM
There are wintry scents and then there’s this. Push autumn to the side because winter is in full force once you spritz Hugo Boss The Scent Absolute For Him. The spine-tingling rich accords of ginger, maninka fruit and vetiver are like nothing you’ve smelt before. Deep and bold, this is winter captured in a bottle. Want the women’s version to match? Grab Hugo Boss The Scent Absolute For Her for an ultra seductive and intense smell.
