First of all, if you are actually deciding to change your fragrances for the seasons, then congratulations because you are a savvy fragrance wearer.
You already know how different perfumes should be worn for different seasons and you are looking for the most popular fragrances for winter so that you can call them your own.
For those who are new to the land of fragrance, you should know that typically, winter perfumes tend to be a little more wintery.
You can often get away with heavier fragrances in the cold than you can in the heat because heavy scents in the heat can feel overpowering, but a fragrance that is too light can just disappear in the cold, so winter perfumes are typically much different than their lighter, summery counterparts.
That being said, it seems as if there is an ever-changing top ten list of great seasonal perfumes and the winter fragrances for this season are no different. Ten fragrances can get a little daunting, however, so here is a list of the top three women’s perfumes for winter.
