    I fell in love with Michael Kors Sexy Amber and bought it. It smells wonderful!! Then today, while taking advantage of the VIB sale, I smelled Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb for the very first time at Sephora. Good stuff!!

    Guerlain Jicky!

    I love Dolce and Gabbana The One all year, but especially in the winter and around the holidays!

    In winter/during the holidays, I tend to favor scents that have a lot of warm vanilla, amber, or are a bit spicy. I have to use lightly, since it doesn’t actually get cold in Hawaii for the holidays (or anytime, actually).

  6. It’s summer during Christmas here in Australia, so I’ll probably be wearing a lot of Timbuktu – it’s perfect for the dry, hot weather. Evenings, though, it’ll probably be L’Heure Bleue and Mitsouko.

  7. I don’t wear anything seasonal apart from warming/cooling clothing, really (and I usually just add or take layers). However, I’ve been a bit obsessed with Lancôme Trésor Midnight Rose and La Vie est Belle. I think I may need to revisit my old love as well, which is Hanae Mori Butterfly. The sad part is they’re the less toothache-inducing among the fragrances I like. :P (Prada Candy wears a bit too close to the skin for me, although I do like it)

  8. Love to wear Hypnotic Poison EDT by Dior.
    The fragrance loves me and I love this fragrance !

  9. Probably Fresh’s Cannabis Rose (which is no longer sold at Sephora, so when I finish the bottle I have, that’s the end of that!) or Chanel 19 in the perfume format – that has been my all time favourite for decades.

      There is simply nothing in the world like Chanel 19 EDP. I don’t understand why they don’t sell it at US Chanel counters. You have to either order it online, or purchase it outside of the States. I also scored some of the parfum, which is wonderful, but still nothing like the EDP.

    Come November 1 I whip out the Hermessence Ambre Narguile. I’m not a fan of really smoky scents, but this has just the right amount of smoky and sweetness, perfect scent to get me through holidays season (Thanksgiving and Christmas). However, come January I put it away and pull out that Tom Ford Jasmin Rouge, which is my fav scent to wear until spring comes around:)!

    By Kilian Sweet Redemption
    Bottega Veneta Eau Legere
    Victor and Rolf Spicebomb
    Chanel 5 parfum spray (the greatest scarf/coat scent ever. Period.)
    And for lighter days, I’ve been layering Chanel Gardenia with Jo Malone Orange Blossom.

  15. I’m not one for body fragrance, but when it comes to candles I love anything with balsam or cinnamon.

  16. Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire EdP (i love the Lotion too).

  17. I recently discovered Illamasqua Freak, which is a dark, gothic, heady floral.

  18. Meaghan

    Hermes Eau de Merveilles
    Lise Watier Neiges

    I only wear Chanel Chance, Marc Jacobs, Gucci Guilty and RL Romance. I tend to gravitate towards Gucci and Marc Jacobs in winter.

  20. SisiLady

    Bvlgari Mon Jasmin Noir is so special.

  21. I go back and forth between Snow White by Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab and Woodsmoke & Amber by Firebird Bath and Body. BPAL’s seasonal evergreen-heavy scents are also favorites (like Skadi and Ondurdis).

    I love the Giorgio Armani Si…….so much so I stocked up on it during sales.

  23. I gravitate to sweet scents in the winter. My 2 faves are Demeter Cake Batter and BBW Vanilla Bean Noel!

    Bond No. 9 The Scent of Peace especially around the holidays.

    One of my favorites once the weather gets crisp is L de Lolita Lempicka.

  26. Kaytlin

    Burberry Brit & Jimmy Choo.

  27. Donna

    Old Favs: Guerlain’s Shalimar and Liz Claiborne’s Claiborne (remember the fun triangular-shaped bottles??) but it must be the Parfum, not the EDT.

    New fav: Tom Ford’s Violet Blonde – sexy!!

    My boyfriend bought me Thierry Mugler’s “Alien” for Christmas years ago so for me it always smells like Christmas. I wear the heck out of Alien during the holidays, sentimental to me.

  29. Ashley

    Jo Malone Blackberry & Bay, though I wear it year-round. I received it last Christmas so I associate the fragrance with the holidays!

  30. I love D&G Li’imperatrice (Number 3) for the summer time. I’m still wearing it…need to find myself a winter perfume for the festive period!! Think I have some YSL Cinema, will try and dig that out :)
