Best Holiday Fragrance

What's the best Holiday Fragrance that you've tried?

I love Tom Ford’s Plum Japonais for the holidays–a little sweet but not cloying, warmer.

During these cooler winter months, I love wearing a bit of Tom Ford Black Orchid! It just has such a beautiful warmth to it and makes me feel cozy inside.

I have two winter fragrances, and so what I associate with holiday season: Bulgari Rouge au the Vert (red tea) for fall into and through winter; Kiehl’s classic musk for heart of winter

That’s a great one Christine! In the past my favorite was Burberry Brit Red because it smelled like Christmas in a bottle but it’s discontinued. 🙁 This season I’ll be wearing my new scent Dark Horse from Dame Perfumery a lot, it’s spicy and cozy.

Oh my, that’s hard because I love so many. Aerin’s Waterlily Sun is my current summery holiday favourite. For autumn and winter I like something spicier – Cinnabar by EL or Opium by YSL.

I like Mugler Angel because, well, Christmas and angels seem to make sense. I just discovered Margiela’s By the Fireplace. Mmmm! Smells like “chestnuts roasting on an open fire”.

I Love Tom Ford velvet orchid for this colder season, beautiful and cosy scent! I also love Zadig & Voltaire – this is her. Gorgeous scent for the holidays ????????

My Thanksgiving/Christmas scent is Jo Malone’s Mimosa & Cardamom (though I lighten it up with Wood Sage & Sea Salt on Thanksgiving), and my New Year’s scent is definitely going to be their new Basil & Neroli cologne, though I may also lighten it up with Wood Sage & Sea Salt.

I don’t have a holiday fragrance. It is more about what I can tolerate since many of them I find too strong and cloying. YSL doesn’t bother me so much so I’ve been wearing that lately

Lolita Lempicka will forever by my Xmas fragrance. I remember the year it came out I visited Paris over Xmas & every Parisienne was wearing it!
