Top 5 Winter Fragrances For Men in 2018

When it comes to fragrance, I’ve always been a fresh citrussy kind of guy. Aquatic accords and bergamot notes have always formed the backbone of what I would wear daily. The thing is, whilst they work really well during the summer months, once the nights draw in and the weather turns cold, they just don’t have the same feel.

My winter fragrance wardrobe is rather limited, but I do have 5 fragrances that I’m going to be rotating through for different occasions for the next few months. There are a few I don’t own as of yet, that would probably make this list, but I like to keep things real and showcase what I’m genuinely going to wear this winter.

Fragrance Review - Dior Fahrenheit

Picked Dior Fahrenheit up at Gatwick Airport en-route to Milan for a photoshoot. There were a few I looked at, including Dior Eau Sauvage and Versace’s The Dreamer, but those are fresh, and given that we’re rapidly approaching the end of summer, I wanted something a little darker. Fahrenheit was launched in 1988 and is definitely considered to be a classic mens fragrance. For some reason I’m really drawn to more masculine vibes right now, so the idea of something like this definitely had an appeal.

Notes & Noses - Expanding my Fragrance Arsenal

I wrote a while back about wanting to learn more about fragrance, and more specifically, get away from the typical man thing of having a single scent that I wear all the time, every day, for years and years!

I’ve found myself watching an increasing amount of fragrance review videos on YouTube, which is all well and good, but you can’t smell any of the recommendations through a screen. In an ideal world, I’d like to attend some sort of workshop to teach me more, but in lieu of that, I came up with a genius plan, which also had the added bonus of making use of some otherwise dead time!

What I’m Learning About This Month

I always think it’s important to have a curious mind. Anyone that knows me has probably been bored by my endless supply of largely useless facts and trivia. It pains me to say it, but I’m ‘that guy’ 🤦🏻‍♂️.

I love learning, it’s definitely my ‘thing’. I don’t really like studying or being tested in a formal context, but learning, hearing about, and seeing how things work makes me happy. Last year, my big thing was learning about how the human body works in relation to nutrition, which led me on to learning about hormones and the endocrine system. A while back I learned about latte art and milk foam. I really like etymology and learning about the history of words, and how they came to be. I think it’s important to know something about everything. I’m by no means an expert on any of this stuff... more of an amateur enthusiast 😂

Vintage Vogue

Last year, one of my Twitter friends tweeted about getting her 'Birthday Vogue'. I thought this was an awesome idea for a present for my mum for Christmas, and while scouring the internet for vintage magazines, I stumbled across my own... December 1979. I thought it would be rude not to buy it!

I have a Vogue subscription so I'm always flicking through the pages, both for my interest in Fashion, but also because I love getting inspiration for shoots, and seeing the latest photographic trends, so it's interesting to see what was en-vogue (pun intended) over 30 years ago!
