Fragrance Review - Zara Tobacco Collection : Rich/Warm/Addictive

The second of my Zara fragrance purchases, was Rich/Warm/Addictive from the Tobacco Collection. This is a steal at £12.99 for 100ml, assuming it’s any good. I’ve been focussing on building up my collection with scents to wear in the colder months. The vast majority of my shelf is fresh citrussy options, so as the winter gets ever nearer, I need some more appropriate things to wear. Apparently, there are other fragrances in the Tobacco Collection, but in store, I could only see this one. I wish they’d have given this a name slightly easier to remember. Far too many words going on!

Cold Comfort

It’s been properly cold this week! I mean, not like arctic cold, but brrrrrr that wind chill!!! I definitely prefer the summer weather over winter from a comfort perspective, but having said that, winter does give more options for layering than hot temperatures. As it gets even colder though, I do find myself wanting to wear more and more comfy casual clothing. I figure if the weather is uncomfortable, my clothes should balance it out right?

Winter is Coming

Finally, having seen Game of Thrones, I can actually say ‘Winter is coming’ and know where it comes from, beyond a meme of Sean Bean! 

Either way, it’s definitely got a bit on the cold side! I was shooting outside all day yesterday, and I just wasn’t prepared! Today is the second day in a row of outdoor shooting around London, so last night I set out on a mission to get a Parka. Something I haven’t owned since I was about 8 years old!

The Camel Coat

Literally a year ago I bought my first camel coat, which quickly became one of my go to winter staples, but unfortunately (or fortunately) by the time I pulled out my winter wardrobe, last years coat from H&M was too big. So this obviously meant a trip out shopping for a new one! Yay!!!

It seems that most places are favouring a narrow or in some cases even no lapel this season, whereas I was hoping for something a bit wider this time around. I ended up with a double breasted, which feels super warm when buttoned up, but when open I feel it adds a little something extra over a single breasted.

A Pop of Colour

Seems that my standard uniform is pretty monochrome these days. I like it though. Neutral tones are easier to mix and match and create varied looks. That doesn’t mean I don’t like to have a little accented colour from time to time though. 

I picked this overcoat up last year on impulse and it’s one of the few things that still fits! (Everything else is too big for me these days! 🙊). I got the blazer in the Zara sale earlier in the summer. I popped in on my way out to a party because I didn’t have anything else that fitted. Literally got changed in the changing room and threw the old tshirt I had on in the bin! I’ve never had anything double breasted before, but I’m really into it!
