Should You Switch Your Cologne In The Winter?


As the nights get longer and the weather gets cooler, we find ourselves wearing the cosy jumper, that will never go out of fashion. It is the right time to also switch our fragrance for something more comforting and warm.

If you have your favourite signature scent and love to wear it no matter what time of year it is, just spice up your game with at least one seasonal fragrance and use it from time to time on some special occasions. There are definitely some advantages to changing up your signature scent. If you don’t notice how incredible your favourite fragrance smells anymore, maybe it’s time to try something new.

Winter fragrances are a thing

The fresh and more citrus-laden scents we loved in the summer may become too light to even notice. The summer heat intensifies the scent of cologne, but cold winter weather tends to make it fade. Stronger and rich scents won’t fade that easy plus their keynotes just smell like the season itself – woody, wintry and spicy. Some people also prefer to wear more than one type of cologne every day. In the morning, a few spritzes of light and fresh fragrance that is suitable for office wear, bolder and muskier fragrances once they are heading out to enjoy some drinks.

What makes a fragrance a winter fragrance?

When the temperature drops, we cover up our body more than in the previous months. Also, our skin is naturally drier, and the scents don’t evaporate as easily as in the summer. A light fragrance will either fade quickly or you will not notice it at all. Upgrade your fragrance collection with rich and full-bodied, almost ‘cocooning’ fragrances. Winter fragrance should wrap itself around you like a warm cashmere scarf. Think of woody, smokier, leathery and spicy scents.

Make it last

There are 3 key tips on how to make your favourite winter fragrance last much longer.

Use a Matching Deodorant and Moisturizer

A body cream matching to your fragrance acts like a glue that holds the scent on your skin. It also builds up a layer of lighter fragrance on the skin.

Well-hydrated skin will hold the fragrance the best, so consider spritzing the fragrance after getting out of the shower and applying the body lotion. You can also use fragrance-free body lotion if there is no matching one on the market.

Your deodorant contributes to your fragrance, so you need to be sure to find a product that works with the perfume. And a matching deodorant is the easiest way. If you’re buying new seasonal fragrances, try getting men’s aftershave gift sets which include matching shower gels, deodorants and other toiletry products.

Try Heavier Fragrance

The colder the weather, the heavier fragrance you should wear. It just cuts better through the cold and dry air. Pick an Eau de Parfum or Parfum, rather than cologne which is much better for warmer months.

Apply Your Fragrance On Your Scarf and Hair

Many people underestimate the power of scent on the scarf and in the hair. Spritzing your favourite fragrance on your scarf creates mysterious wafts that will follow you around all day. Are you ready for some compliments?

Feeling tempted to try something new this winter? Well, the best about shopping for winter fragrances are the Black Friday perfume deals which come every year at the end of November. Right on time for a new seasonal fragrance and a little bit of a Christmas shopping.
