When a new season rolls around, we normally make some changes to our closet, bedding, décor, and even what we eat (hello, pumpkin everything in fall). We might even change up our beauty looks—I definitely do. In the summer months, I gravitate toward brighter lip colors and bronzy hues. When there's a chill in the air, I love a dark red lipstick and some dramatic eye makeup.
One thing I'm switching up as the winter season makes its presence known is my go-to fragrance. Normally, I go for fresh, citrus-infused, and floral notes for spring and summer, but as the weather gets cooler, I'm looking forward to going all-in on woody, earthy perfumes.
Woody fragrances feel so grounding (it's pretty obvious why) and cozy—two things that are perfect for the wintry season. You kind of smell like a pine tree but, dare I say it, even better. There are so many different combinations of scents that you can find one that works with your fragrance style, whether you gravitate toward the spicier scents or floral, sweeter perfumes.
Take a look at some of the woody perfumes I'm eyeing for my fragrance lineup.
An evening by a fireplace with a warm drink in a hand and a good book just might be the epitome of coziness. You can take those feels with you thanks to this fragrance, which is aptly called By the Fireplace. The warm and spicy scent has notes of pink pepper, orange flower petals, clove oil, chestnut accord, guaiac wood oil, cade oil, vanilla accord, Peru balsam, and Cashmeran.
Inspired by the desert area of Marfa, Texas, this scent will transport you to somewhere warm. It has top notes of desert shrubs, desert pepper, and pinyon pine; middle notes of creosote, oak, and khella; and base notes of dry sand accord and shrub wax.
If you're not ready to go all-in with an earthy fragrance and say goodbye to your light, fresh scent, this perfume has the best of both worlds. It has spicy and woody notes of tuberose, musk, and camphora blended with fruity melon and coconut.
This is another clean fragrance option that's both eco-conscious and ethically sourced. It has notes of vetiver, blonde cedarwood, and myrrh, so it's earthy and herby at the same time.
