7 scents to try this winter The perfect gift for this Christmas

When it comes to fragrances and scents, trends come and go with the seasons, as it happens with hairstyles, make-up and fashion. With winter and Christmas upon us, if you can't wait to cover your wrists in a warm and wrapping oud - perfect for the cold weather - you might be disappointed in learning that the scent world lately has adopted a "lighter" approach. For this cold season, in fact, the trend bans extremely sweet or too heavy scents to leave room for lighter aromas: a mix of warm and icy notes, as a day spent on the snow or as an evening in front of the fireplace. Moreover, the fragrance has always been one of the most intimate and personal purchases to make and it's a good habit to change it from season to season, above all because scents are specifically formulated to evoke a particular feeling or memory. 

If you don't know where to start, here you can find the 7 best winter scents to gift yourself or someone you love for this Christmas. 

 

GUCCI MÉMOIRE D’UNE ODEUR EAU DE PARFUM

For us, the perfect winter scent has a woody and earthy atmosphere, that's why we love this Gucci fragrance. The notes of chamomile, jasmine and vanilla all together create a very relaxing perfume that warms the day.
