The Best Natural Perfumes for Winter

When winter arrives, Jessica Kiely, founder of Sensoriam, finds herself revelling in its unique charms, both in Bondi and across the globe. "I love winter in Bondi, Australia," she shares, "because the sense of the season is so distinct. With fewer people on Bondi Beach, it feels like I have it all to myself." There's a serene beauty in the quieter sands and the crisp coastal air. On the other hand, winter in Europe offers a completely different allure. "Skiing through the majestic, snow-covered landscapes is breathtaking," Jessica muses.

Winter’s magic is undeniable, and one of the most intimate ways to savour the season is through scent. Fragrance becomes a cosy companion, wrapping you in warmth and elegance as the temperatures drop. Sensoriam, with its exquisite collection of 100% natural perfumes, is here to guide you to the best winter scents, ensuring that you embrace the season with sophistication and natural beauty.

What scent is associated with winter in different parts of the world?

Winter's scent is as diverse as the regions that experience it. In the crisp, snowy landscapes of Scandinavia, winter is marked by the invigorating aroma of pine forests and the subtle smokiness of wood-burning stoves. In Japan, the season carries the delicate fragrance of yuzu, a citrus fruit that symbolises winter solstice celebrations. Meanwhile, in the Mediterranean, winter is imbued with the rich, earthy notes of olive wood and myrrh.

But what universally defines winter's scent? Jessica Kiely, Sensoriam's founder, explains, "Winter's aroma is a blend of warmth and depth, a sensory embrace that counterbalances the cold. It's a season where we seek comfort in richer, more complex fragrances that evoke a sense of cosiness and sophistication."

What makes winter smell?

Winter's distinctive smell arises from a combination of environmental and cultural factors. The cold air itself is less capable of holding moisture, leading to a crisper, cleaner scent profile. Additionally, the increased use of fireplaces and wood stoves introduces smoky, resinous notes into the atmosphere. Seasonal foods and beverages, such as mulled wine and spiced teas, further contribute to the olfactory tapestry of winter.

What fragrances are good for winter?

What makes a fragrance ideal for winter? According to Jessica "Winter fragrances should have a certain gravitas—they need to be warming and enveloping, often with woody, spicy, or resinous base notes that provide a lingering presence. These scents not only complement the season but also enhance the wearer's sense of comfort and allure." 

How to smell good in winter?

To truly embrace the winter season and maintain an aura of elegance, it’s essential to select fragrances that align with the season's characteristics. As Jessica Kiely advises, "Choosing the right winter scent is about finding that perfect balance between warmth and depth, creating an olfactory experience that resonates with the season's intimate charm."
