Hi Posse! I’m currently about to be with you all in the Northern Hemisphere on Jin & my annual migration. Winter frags are a hard thing to choose while sweltering in 40C (104F) what you would like to spritz with at 0C or below. I really need your help please.
Winter Frags: What Are You Spritzing?
So I have a bunch of winter frags, obviously, but I’d really like to know what you’ve been spritzing this year. Is it ambers, or musks, vanilla or incense? Have you been going against the grain and wearing aquatics and iris or citrus and gardenia?
I’m only taking two fragrances with me, 5ml decants, because I know we will be meeting up with perfumistas, perfumers, creative directors etc and shopping for fragrances in almost every stop. O M G so exciting.
Here are a few of my thoughts:
Rosa sur Reuse by SOIVOHLE: I love the clear rose and the dank murkiness that create a fragrant contrapuntal. Also, there is a depth, vibrancy and shine that is impossible to keep when working to the mass market, an innocent joie de vivre that warms my heart. It’s also completely different to what I smell on people on the streets of Europe.
Coco parfum by CHANEL: I found a 35ml spritz bottle somewhere years ago, it’s an excellent travel companion because it’s onboard size and one spritz and I am gorgeously fragrant for the day. The bottle seems to have lasted forever too. There’s only about 5ml left but Coco is a beautiful holiday accompaniment, especially for the winter months.
L’Heure Convoiteé II by Cartier: Jin & I bought this in 2013 in Prague Cartier. I love the crisp, cool zing of L’Heure Convoiteé II in winter and it dries down to cuddly powdery musks. You’d think that it wouldn’t work in the cold but it does.
Oriental Brulant by Guerlain: Is there anything more perfectly suited to traipsing around winter Europe than Oriental Brulant? It’s warm resinous vanilla with a curious waft of almond and sherbet. Deliciously, edibly, glamorously and effortlessly posh.
