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!!

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).

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.

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. 😛 (Prada Candy wears a bit too close to the skin for me, although I do like it)

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.

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

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).

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.

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

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 🙂
