The scents of the winter season are cozy, heady, and spicy, think cinnamon and vanilla with a hint of rich caramel. We scoured the fragrance counters of our favorite stores and came away with 8 great scents that are a mix of pretty florals and sensual blends that we had to share. So give them a spritz and pick up one for you and one for a friend as you do your holiday shopping.
SEXY & SENSUAL
Viktor & Rolf Bonbon
is seriously sexy. Don't let the sweet bow shaped bottle fool you, this is not a fragrance for little girls. Top notes of caramel, orange blossom, and peach blend with amber and sandalwood for a scent that is nothing less than sensual and haute couture as the designers intended. ($115)
Sofia by Sofia Vergara
is every drop as sexy as the woman herself. The glamorous fragrance is a blend of Columbian rose, blackberry, earthy woods, and vanilla to round it out. We hear that Sofia's hunky beau, the very sexy Joe Manganiello, is a fan of the fragrance. ($55)
Ralph Lauren Midnight Romance
is the latest in the line of perfumes that are great for daytime, this one is date-night fabulous. Each spritz is a mix of freesia, black vanilla, raspberry, and jasmine. Wear a little for day and add an extra spray for night. ($52)
Coach Poppy Wildflower
is both delicate and rich with a blend of vanilla and patchouli as well as a hint of orange flower. It is sexy and a bit edgier that most Coach fragrances. ($68)
PRETTY & FLIRTY
Kat Burki Tubereuse
is a fruity floral perfect for daytime. Consider it a pop of springtime in the cold dread of winter. A quick whiff of jasmine and tuberose are blended with lush bergamot and a hint of rosewood to create this lovely, light scent. ($115)
Lolita Lempicka Elle L'Aime
is a fun, girly scent that's the perfect gift for your best girlfriend this holiday season. Ylang-ylang and jasmine blend with coconut in a delicate balance that is simply feminine and pretty. ($81)
Annick Goutal Un Matin D'Orage
was inspired by a trip to Japan so it's fitting that the fragrance evokes the lush notes of gardenia and the freshness of morning dew. A hint of vanilla and touch of exotic myrrh elevate the fragrance. ($170)
's Harajuku Lovers Baby
is as fun and funky as the rocker herself. This daytime fragrance, one of five in the line, is a baby soft musk in the most adorable bottle you've ever seen. If you, or someone you plan to gift this season, prefer delicate florals with a touch of vanilla put this on the top of your list. ($40)
