As the weather turns, and snow falls outside, it’s officially time for cold weather beauty updates. While in the summer we try to combat sweat and shine, in the winter we go for a darker lip and deeper, more sexual scents. So to get your sexy back right in time for a New Years kiss, here are our top winter fragrances to pick up now…
Lisa Hoffman: Serenity Scent Trio
Winter means lots of holiday vacations to see family and friends, but traveling with your favorite perfume can be tricky with TSA regulations, spilling inside your purse, and other disasters. That’s why we love the trios from Lisa Hoffman, which are sleek and small enough to carry on any plane, train or automobile. Wear one at a time, or layer them up for a scent that’s all your own. These are also great stocking stuffers!

Kilian Hennessy: Voulez-vous Coucher Avec Moi
French is arguably the sexiest language on the planet, so any scent with a name like this one has our attention. Not to mention, the name means “Would you like to sleep with me?” so you can be sure this is one seductive scent. The sleek gold and black bottle re-emphasizes the take no prisoners vibe of this rich perfume that would be perfect with a velvet dress and a red hot lip for a night out on the town.

Michael Kors: Gold Collection
For the princess in all of us, this trio of luxurious scents is the perfect addition to your winter makeup routine. There is something for everyone with scents ranging from Rose for the romantic lady to White for an understated elegance and finally Yellow that straight up brings the sex appeal. One for any mood, or outfit, you have on your cold weather horizon.
Fendi: Furiosa Eau de Parfum
With notes of jasmine and incense mixed with spicy pink peppercorn, this is a scent that takes you from work to date night. It got a stamp of approval from the Men’s Health editorial team as the perfect perfume if you’re going for a sexy “weekend-in-the-mountains” vibe complete with a “snuggle-on-the-couch-in-front-of-the-fire” scent (just quoting the guys here)
Lisa Hoffman: Hawaiian Plumeria Eau de Parfum
For a taste of summer on these chilly nights, this last fragrance features warm initial notes of shaved coconut, plus the exotic orchids and salty ocean air we’re all missing during the snow and wind of winter. And then there’s the lemony Hawaiian Plumeria nestled in there as well to keep it from being too sweet. It will put you, and whomever smells it, straight on the beaches of Hawaii instead of being stuck on a wintery commute to work.
