As the winter season approaches, you may want to add some new fragrances to your collection. The colder the weather gets, the “warmer” you’ll want your fragrances to be. While fragrances like fresh linen and citrus are popular in spring and summer, winter fragrances often contain notes of fir, fig, vanilla, amber, and musk.
If you’re looking for a new winter fragrance or want to find the perfect gift for a loved one, here are five of the best fragrances for Winter 2020.
Viktor and Rolf Spicebomb Extreme
This fragrance from popular brand Viktor and Rolf comes in a sleek bottle shaped like a hand grenade. The cologne has spicy and Oriental notes which makes it warm and appealing. Spicebomb Extreme is available in an Eau de parfum concentration so it will last for up to 12 hours so it’s perfect for special occasions.
Creed Aventus has several fruity and spice notes for an alluring combination that is great for both casual and formal occasions. This cologne contains notes of pineapple, vanilla, apple, oakmoss, and black currant. Creed Aventus has a brightness to it, but it’s still appropriate for winter because the fruity notes are combined with pronounced scents that provide a pleasant fragrant combination.
