Best of Winter Coming This Friday!

winter perfume roundupSo make sure you stop in. We’ll be rounding up the Posse Picks for Best of Winter 2017/2018, along with some of our friends in the fragrance blogging world.

Which leaves us today with you guys telling me how your winter is going.  How much do you change what you wear in the colder months vs. summer months?  Do you have some fragrances that you can’t bear in the summer that you wear nonstop in the winter? Some you can wear year-round?

Definitely, for me, I change it up a LOT, wearing almost nothing in summer and then getting super giddy when it gets into September and I can wear perfume again.  There are a handful of things I will wear year-round – incense perfumes, white florals in the dead heat of summer.

BTW, I have tried Zoologist Camel, and I do have thoughts about it, but still am not sure exactly what those are. Need to try it again when I have some good quiet around.

And I’ll leave you with Little Sophie, in absolute bliss getting petted.  I hadn’t done a Frenchie pic for a little bit!  Okay, look for that Best of Winter this Friday!

  1. Little Sophie!!! So adorable. I don’t wear as much in the summer- I don’t like hot and humid so I stick to things like O de Lancôme, Madragore, Dame Sky Father, citrusy lighter scents. Sometimes for a night out I’ll try something a little spicy or rosy and deeper but super light spraying. As soon as it cools down I bring everything back out, but I find that I don’t reach for those citrusy scents unless we have an unseasonably warm day and I want to be reminded of warm weather. Can’t wait to read best of winter!

  2. I am definitely the seasons person with perfumes. I rotate between 4 seasons at least. In colder weather it’s the gourmands, heavier wood and leather scents. The warmer it gets, I long for flowers (no tuberose for me), greener and lighter leather scents.
    Sophie is charming and I’m looking forward to Friday’s list.

  3. I definitely wear warm woods, resins, incense and patch scents in winter, switching to florals and citrus scents or beachy scents in summer (more Allegorias and Atelier in summer). Spring and Fall I’m more fickle and play with whatever grabs my fancy on a day. Sophie is so smoochable!

  4. It seems to me that it’s been raining non-stop here in Paris for eons. The Seine is overflowing and the news says rats are coming out… I’m gonna wear more L’Air du Désert marocain. I didn’t like it when I tried it for the first time a year ago, but I guess my taste has changed (or the weather?) and now I love it. I plan to get a full bottle once the sample is gone. I would have bought my bottle already if Andy wasn’t taking a vacation in Réunion now!
    Looking forward to Friday!

    • Mr. Tauer does seem to be a moving target! Good for him. 🙂

      I tried his L’air for the first time a few months ago and am completely won over. Pure genius.

  5. Awww, what a cutie, wish I could give Little Sophie some skritches.

    The weather here isn’t freezing cold, but I do crave spices and woods in winter. Usually I look to Theorema and Ambre Narguile for the spices. L’air du desert marocain and an STC sample of CdG Sequoia have been especially comforting wood scents this winter.

    Best of Winter on Friday sounds great!

  6. I recently segregated my fragrances by notes, then assigned those groups (generally) to seasons. I almost never cross over. This way I feel I manage the rotation of scents better and less chance for neglect.

  7. I definitely switch up to my heavier orientals in winter, today I’m wearing Montale Incense Full. Sophie is so cute!

  8. I am looking forward to Best of Winter. I pretty much wear my fragrances year-round. Anything citrusy is reserved for warm weather. That’s it. This past year has been the year of white and yellow flowers for me. I cannot get enough of sampling and wearing them. It’s been great and has not ended yet.

  9. Our weather here near Washington DC has huge temperature swings from extreme heat to extreme cold, so my perfume selections change likewise with the seasons. I like leathers, heady florals, vanilla orientals, stuff with incense, and can even stomach some patchouli in cold weather.

  10. I think I first tried Tauers LDDM in the summer and it didn’t feel quite right. Sounds like I’ll have to give it a go now..seeing as it’s winter time. Same sentiments as most people here as far as rotating lighter and heavier scents during the seasons. Sophie looks so relaxed and content!

  11. Sophie, Sophie, Sophie. Lose my mind over these sweet Frenchies. Oh to bottle a scent that evoked the joy of loving on our wee (and not so wee) beasties.
