Aftelier Perfumes Fir Perfume Solid, $245,


“This warm vanilla scent was made for cold weather.” – Karla Martinez de Salas, Fashion Market and Accessories Director

Christian Dior Leather Oud, $210,


“It perfectly combines a warm, woodsy scent with bright notes of fresh white flowers.” – Christina Caldwell, Digital Director

“Spicy and rich, this Moroccan-inspired fragrance warms me up even on a chilly day.”- Kat Herriman, Digital Editorial Assistant

Aesop Marrakech Intense perfume, $79,


“I am addicted to Etat Libre d’Orange’s funny names and luxe scents. With notes of rose absolute, lily of the valley, ginger, and amber, Putain des Palaces (pardon my French) is the perfect blend of sweet and spicy for the cooler months.” – Sue Williamson, Digital Editorial Associate

“I’m not generally seasonal about fragrance, but when I do switch things up from my Frederic Malle Iris Poudre, to which I’m extremely loyal, it’s for Dior Bois d’Argent. I love the mix of powder, woodsy notes and iris in this unisex scent—it’s incredibly cozy and comforting.” – Vanessa Lawrence, Features Writer
