Winter colognes that are worth every penny

Winter colognes that are worth every penny

Now that winter is here, it’s time to switch up from your sweet summer scents. But that's easier said than done. The art of selecting the right winter fragrance is a subtle game. Summers are sweaty and powerful fragrances work very well. The same is not true for winter. You need a spicy perfume that has notes of leather, tobacco, cedar or amber to better suit the cold winter air.

Here are some of Alex’s favorite winter colognes to help get you started.

Haltane from parfums de marly

Haltane is a woody and aromatic perfume for men that’s perfect for the winter season. It’s a masculine scent that’s sure to get you compliments. The perfume is best fit for nighttime, such as for clubbing and going out.

Tom Ford Oud wood

A premium cologne that’s heavy on the wallet but worth every dollar. It’s a rich woody scent that’s made from the most premium ingredients. It’s primarily a night time perfume for special occasions that shines best in moderately cold climates.

Vikter and Rolf spice bomb

Spice bomb smells exactly what it sounds like. It’s a rich explosion of various scents like pink peppercorn, grapefruit, saffron and cinnamon. There’s blazing notes of spice and leather in there that’ll have you standing out from the crowd. The scent is pretty versatile and can be worn during day and night. However it’s best for casual and outdoor settings. The scent would be too exotic for formal/office settings.

Yves Saint Laurant Myself

Myself is an aromatic and fresh mix of woody floral and musky notes. The fragrance is adventurous and yet versatile. It can be worn both casually in the day and for nights out.

Le Labo Santal

Santal is a lovely mix of cardamom and smoking wood. The notes are leathery and spicy. The ingredients are premium like Australian sandwal wood and cedarwood. It’s a solid perfume that’s been on the market for 10 years. During winter Santal can be worn virtually any time of the day. It complements the chill weather very well without being too exotic. You can wear it both casually and formally throughout the winter season. 

With these tips and recommendations, you'll not just be smelling like a boss, you'll be commanding the whole room. Now go out and kill it this winter.
