Top 5 Fragrances To Get Over January

Unveiling the scents of the season.


In the colder months, it's essential to lift your spirits, whether you're at home, work, or anywhere else. A particular scent can evoke various emotions, providing a comforting and nostalgic experience. 

Many of us can relate to the January blues, and that's when a fragrance can make a small impact on your day and hopefully give you a moment of self-awareness and mindfulness.

Choosing a fragrance is a personal decision, and one may opt for scents that resonate with their past experiences in the hopes of capturing the essence of themselves and who they aspire to be.

In the dark month of January, people often prefer warm and cozy fragrances with notes like vanilla, amber, cinnamon, cedarwood, and musk. Additionally, scents with a touch of spice or woody undertones can be fitting for the winter months. 

To help you combat the January blues, here's a selection of fragrances that are sure to bring back memories, hopefully good ones, and add a boost to your mood.

Miss Dior Rose N'Roses

The ultimate feminine energy boost features a floral abundance of rose fields with a citrusy touch reminding you of the holidays that are about to come back once winter is over. Who doesn’t love Dior?

Maison Margiela Replica Bubble Bath

Winter can be fun and exciting, but the cold, dark, and short days can also bring anxiety. It’s always nice to have that personal safe space that you can access at certain times, and I think this fragrance can definitely provide that. It’s meant to bring back a relaxing memory of a “me time” moment in the bubbles of a hot scented bath. The soothing notes of coconut milk blended with the clean freshness of the soap bubble recreate the safe space we're all looking for in an overwhelming world that seems to get more and more stressful.

Chanel Cristalle 

Dramatic.Strong and light. Natural yet sophisticated. It’s meant to remind you of the first rays of springtime sun whilst still being suitable for an evening out. Featuring a powerful sense of elegance, the floral-fresh scent of Cristalle is a balance of character and transparency, creating an unforgettable winter memory.

Malin+Goetz Vetiver

Think spring. Think of the future that’s ahead of you this year. Think of how exciting it will be. This fragrance is created to highlight the intrinsically clean and earthy aroma we are most fond of.
It's fresh like newly-cut grass and citrus peel twists but warmed by savory celery seed, and amber. Vetiver demonstrates the dynamic richness and beauty of the earth it originated from.

Serge Lutens Féminité du Bois

A mythical, pure, and essential perfume from Serge Lutens' Collection Noire. January can be dark and mysterious, so why not embrace that assertive and unconventional side of your femininity? A strong perfume created by the iconic Serge Lutens in his own image. Minimalist, straight-lined, angular, and uncompromising, each of these bottles with their refined style reflects the bold nature and character of their creator. When I first discovered this fragrance I thought of Samantha Jones from SATC. Unapologetic.
