A few months ago, we shared our Seven Favorite Colognes for Fall. Well, now the days are shorter and the nights are colder. It’s time to warm things up a little with some Winter scents. We’ve put together another list of seven great colognes, this time focusing on the coldest time of the year. These colognes typically have dark, leathery and spicy notes that really stand out even in colder weather. Everything mentioned in this article is available through our partner FragranceNet which has an enormous selection of colognes and perfumes. FragranceNet is also a Google Trusted Store, so you know your purchases are protected and you have the confidence to shop without fear of getting a knockoff cologne.
As you will notice, this is the first of two Tom Ford colognes on this list. The richness of his colognes are hard to compete with, which is why I am such a fan of almost anything he produces. His Noir is a great combination of rose and spice capturing that warmth needed so desperately in this cold season.
Not many scents evoke the holiday season like bay rum. The clove, spice and mint just scream Christmas and New Years. Additionally, the Royall Bayrhum, like most bay rums, can also substitute as an aftershave too.
Unique spices like Cardamom and Caraway bring a unique sweet and spicy blend to this cologne. Layered with lavender and cedar, not many other colognes will entice that special someone to cozy up in front of the fire like this one will.
This smoky, woodsy blend is the perfect cologne for that black tie New Year’s Eve party or an evening in for just the two of you to watch the ball drop. I’ve worn this cologne since it was introduced in 2008, and have only received positive comments about it.
This cologne was also on our Seven Favorite Colognes for Fall, but we’re bringing it back for Winter because the tobacco, wood and leather are too perfect for Winter to not mention it again. And for under fifty dollars, you will not be disappointed.
The dark richness of rose, oud and patchouli are meant for Winter. In fact, I wouldn’t wear this cologne any other time. This fragrance is so deep is needs cold air to tame it. Perfect for this time of year.
If I had to choose just one cologne producer for life, it would be Creed. As many of you know, I love the Creed Original Vetiver and Creed Green Irish Tweed, but for Winter, only the Royal Oud will do. The Royal Oud is so luxurious and rich, that it was almost made just for Winter.
