In the sweltering summer months, we tend to gravitate toward light, fresh and floral fragrances. But when the air turns crisp, it’s the spicy, woodsy, cozy scents that keep us warm. Just as we swap out our summer wardrobe for bulky winter coats and chunky sweaters, our favorite fragrances deserve a seasonal update, too!
Unisex fragrances thrived in 2016 as brands such as Rag & Bone, Calvin Klein and Ariana Grande launched gender-neutral scents, and there’s even more in store for 2017 (music to our ears!). Creator of the ever-popular Flower Bomb, Viktor & Rolf, is launching Magic in February 2017, a highly anticipated unisex collection of luxurious scents. Now that we’re in the heart of winter, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite new wintry colognes and unisex perfumes from this year. With a quick spritz on your skin, you’ll love the way these scents mix with the cold, winter air.
Vert D'Encens by Tom Ford
From a collection of four unisex scents, this sleek bottle is bursting with forest fragrances. A complex concoction of pine, fir balsam and tree sap accord mixed with smoky incense is taken to a whole new level with hints of fresh lavender and lemon. Available at Sephora for $225.
Bergamot by Rag & Bone
For their debut fragrance collection, Rag & Bone's first venture into the world of beauty began with the release of eight unisex scents in October. Bergamot's masculine aroma of warm cashmere wood, citrus notes of bergamot and amber create soft musky undertones. Available at Rag & Bone for $140.
L'Homme Ultime by Yves Saint Laurent
The newest addition to YSL's L'homme collection, Ultime offers a delicious balance of fresh citrus and warm spice. Notes of sage and grapefruit with a twist of spiced ginger and warm cedar wood form a scent that serves as the perfect winter accessory. Available at Sephora for $80.
Black Leather by Clean
The intoxicating smell of new leather is captured in this spicy and musky blend of bergamot and black peppercorn. Juniper and Spearmint accords brighten the bouquet for a scent that will keep you warm all winter long. Available at Clean for $84
Campfire Rebel by Pinrose
A daring blend of vanilla bourbon, whiskey and burning oud wood, this unique unisex fragrance lives up to its name. Hints of raspberry blend with the smoky whiskey aromas for a subtle sweetness that’s truly one of a kind. Available at Nordstrom for $55.
Uomo by Salvatore Ferragamo
An elegant and Italian affair, Salvatore Ferragamo’s newest fragrance is the perfect blend of spicy and sweet. Sweet cardamom, orange blossom and hints of tiramisu complement notes of cashmere wood and sandalwood for a woodsy balm that will thrive in the cool, crisp air. Available at Salvatore Ferragamo for $70.
Infinite Rush by Bentley
A fresh scent that's indicative of Bentley's luxurious cars, Infinite Rush has strong notes of mandarin and pink pepper. The delicate blend of citrus and zesty pepper develop into a warm scent with woody undertones as notes of cedar wood and amber are slowly drawn out. Available at Jet for $40.
Pour Homme Parfum by Bottega Veneta
Pour Homme Parfum — expected to launch in early 2017 — joins a line of fragrances inspired by Bottega Veneta’s luxury leather goods. A more daring version of the original scent in the collection, this fragrance mixes the woodsy scent of the outdoors with the delicious essence of aged leather to create a woody and spicy medley that’s evened out with the addition of fir balsam. Available in 2017 at Bottega Veneta.
