5 Warm & Sexy Perfumes for Fall & Winter

Fall & Winter Perfumes

With the colder months now upon us, it’s that time of year again to swap out our light, fresh scents for warmer, richer fragrances.  And so today, I wanted to share some of my favorite perfumes to wear during the Fall and Winter.

These 5 perfumes are especially warm and inviting, and incorporate woodsy notes, rich floral notes, and even a little bit of spiciness!  😉

Middle notes: Musk, Amber
Base notes: Vetiver, Vanille, Patchouli

And finally, my absolute favorite – Burberry Brit.  It’s quite unique, with notes like lime, sugar, and mahogany.  This is another perfume with a woodsy base, plus warm almond notes that stand out the most.  The playfulness comes in with the lime, pear, sugar and peony, which together adds a nice citrus-y, sweet edge.

Best occasion to wear: Everyday
Mood:   Confident and ambitious.

Top notes: Green Almond, Lemongrass, Lime, Pear
Middle notes: Almond, Sugar, Peony
