Three Ways To Wear Fragrance This Holiday Season

The cooler months of the year are a good time to switch perfumes. You probably wouldn’t feel right wearing your summer slip dress around town after October, doesn’t it make sense to update your fragrance, too? Here are the perfect scents for any wintertime occasion.

At a dinner party with in-laws or colleagues, try something softer so you don’t overwhelm anyone you want to stay in good standing with. Your fragrance shouldn’t resemble any smells wafting from the table, so we recommend cool floral tones instead. Our favorites include Femme by Herve Leger from Avon($34) and Hanae Mori’s No. 2 ($95), which is nice and crisp.

On a date night, let your hair down and indulge in something a little more heady and sensual. Two new scents do that surprisingly well – one from Christina Aguilera, Christina Aguilera By Night ($39), isn’t at all overpowering. The other, Bombshell by Victoria’s Secret ($45-65), is as evocatively feminine as their other collections, but not as sticky sweet.

Lastly, for the day after a big event, keep migraines at bay with a light, clean scent. Beauty by Calvin Klein ($65-85), fits the bill. Or if you’re looking for an even more subtle aroma, consider solid perfume. We like Daisy by Marc Jacobs ($40) – and the ring it comes in is cute, too.
