Niche Fragrances to try this Winter


Winter is here, and with season changes come changes in your perfume collection. The airy and floral fragrances we've cherished during the warmer months are now being rotated out for cozier, spicier, warmer and more inviting scents. It's a transition that makes complete sense when you think about it. We have to find some way to balance out the chillier weather outside. What doesn't make complete sense, is wearing the same popular perfumes as everyone else. You're a stylish individual who sets trends, isn't it time your fragrance selection captures that?

Whether you're looking for gifts to amaze your in-the-know friends, or simply stashing them away for yourself, we found eight niche fragrances that will help you stand out in all of the right ways. 

English Oak and Hazelnut -Jo Malone 

Green Hazlnut, Cedarwood, with a Roasted Oak Absolute base, is what makes this soft and woody Jo Malone scent the perfect winter fragrance. Comforting, nostalgic, and intoxicating; one spray will keep you coming back for more.  

Accord Oud - Byredo

This nuanced Byredo fragrance tames the fierce oud. At first spray, oud, rum, and leather top notes are strongest but the fragrance dries down to a sweet blackberry and iris. A sophisticated unisex scent, suitable for the colder months.

William - Atelier Bloom 

So smoky, and spicy isn't your thing. Fair enough. Why not try this crisp yet woodsy Atelier Bloom fragrance that brings sweet Neroli Petals together with earthy Blond wood in one refreshing scent.  

Ummagumma - Bruno Fazzolari 

Bruno Fazzolari is known for pushing the boundaries of fragrance with his artful, complex, and mysterious hand-crafted scents. At the heart of Ummagumma is a smooth dark chocolate that is layered with Tobacco, Saffron, and Cedar. The kind of scent you'll want to spritz on before you cozy up by the fireside. 

Oud Save the King - Atkinsons 

A perfume as regal as its bottle, this masculine Atkinsons fragrance reminds us of what we love most about Winter and the always stylish brits. Warm Early grey tea with citrusy bergamot, leathery suede , and smoky oud. It's a longlasting yet refined fragrance that is sure to make a statement once you enter and leave a room. Now, that's a power move. 

Whiskey - Commodity 

A limited edition fragrance where the warmth of oakwood meets the intense spice of Irish Whiskey. It's a seductive encounter you'll want to relive over and over throughout the entirety of winter. 

Patchouli 24 - Le Labo

For the daring, Patchouli 24 is like a fire. The mystifying scent opens with a bold, leathery and smoky birch. As the flames settle down, the sweet scent of vanilla takes center stage alongside a musky patchouli. Perfect for heating up when the weather outside is frightful.
