Snif Perfumeries top 10 fragrances for Winter


“For cold days where everything feels bleak, I reach for this scent”


Are you heading to Geelong or the surf coast for a winter getaway? If so, why not come into Snif Perfumery and let us help you find your next winter scent.


Many people have just one signature scent that they use year-round. Here at Snif Perfumery we like to swap them out between the seasons. Don’t get us wrong, we definitely have our favorites that we reach for but we also have a roster of seasonal options from spring florals to relaxed summer scents. With the temperature dropping it is officially time to swap to the warmer winter fragrances.


In the cooler months comfort is key. We lean towards more hearty food, red wines and open fires. This is true for your fragrances too. Amber and wood-based scents with warm notes of vanilla, tobacco and spices take over from the more floral and fruity scents of spring and summer. We are seeing a trend towards more sophisticated smokey warm scents for winter.


Winter is a great time to introduce fragrance layering with matching body oils/ creams to help keep skin hydrated & create a longer lasting fragrance. Our pick is the Hair and Body Oil by Nishane.


Here are the team’s BEST picks for winter fragrance’s:
