Winter Fragrance Guide You Need To KnowRead Time: 3 minutes
We know how hard it is to find the perfect winter fragrance. Some fragrances that are typically long-lasting in the summer don’t do as well in the winter. According to Perfume Society: Hot weather intensifies the fragrance notes and makes them ‘bloom’ on the skin more quickly – when molecules heat up, they evaporate more quickly. Colder weather slows down the evaporation rate (so top and heart notes last much longer) and you might find your scent doesn’t project as much in the winter. With knowing this bit of information, it makes things a little easier to shop for fragrances that won’t wear out throughout the day.
Fabrics Matters In Fragrance
During winter time the fabrics we wear are a bit heavier. Having a perfume that bodes well on heavier fabrics can be helpful as well. From personal experience some fragrances are too much for me and I like to make a wall and walk through them before and after I am dressed. This technique layers the perfume on my body and my clothing, ensuring a nice smell that lasts. However, when using the fragrance wall, fabric types matter. It is said spraying a warm, spicy fragrance rather than a floral will last better in wool scarves and coats used in winter.
