These Winter Perfumes are Cosier Than Cashmere

As much as I enjoy the fresh, zesty scents synonymous with summer, when it comes to perfume, I'm a winter baby through and through. Given the choice, I'll always opt for a darker, spicier blend over something light and fruity. This makes the chilly season my time to shine in the fragrance department—many of the juices launched this time of year are cosier than a cashmere jumper. The snuggliest highlight notes like tonka bean and coffee, mellowed out with sandalwood and musk. (If that sounds good to you, we're probably kindred scent spirits.) Whether you're on the hunt for a new signature scent, or a seasonal fling, you're in the right place.

Ahead you'll find the best cool weather fragrances on counter—respect if you can stop at just one.

A toasty blend of plum and oak moss, this is slightly dirtier than the Chloe scents we're used to, but it's so right for the cooler season. Pair it with your softest sweater.

Giorgio Armani Si Passione $209

Slightly controversial to include because of its fruity accords, but this fiery scent is the perfect mood-booster on a dreary day. It's bursting with pear and blackcurrant notes that are syrupy, but bold.

Perfect for an evening—you guessed it—by the fireplace, this smoky juice is unusual, yet practically irresistible.
