At this time of the year, I always find myself torn between a little sadness at the passing of summer and the prospect of a long, cold winter full of muddy boots and runny noses, and a happiness, a giddiness almost when I think about all the options my perfume closet offers.
My favorite perfumes are predominately winter scents, so I look forward to indulging daily. Classics like Shalimar, L’Heure Bleue, Mitsouko, Vol de Nuit and Nuit de Noel, as well as everything starting with Ambre comes into rotation again. So will all the gorgeous gourmands, anyone Like This perfume?
My colognes and fresh summer scents go into the back of my closet, surely to be searched for again frantically in February, when a bit of sunshine is sorely needed. I love living in a place with distinct seasons, it makes the perfumed life so much more interesting.
