Fragrances have firmly established in our lives a long time ago. Have you ever noticed that a drop of a perfume can bring us back to the past? Or create a feeling of love, hope, happiness? Sometimes we associate one particular aroma with a moment, a place or a person…

Winter has a great opportunity to discover dense, heavy and rich perfumes. Cold air opens up and brightens thick sounds of spices, honey, leather… I hope my favourite collection of season fragrances will help to surround you with amazing atmosphere of wintertime.

1. Ambre Russe, Parfum dʼEmpire



The Ambre Russe was created by Marc-Antoine Corticchiato as a symbol of last Russian Tsars. Contrast and boiling aroma of champagne, vodka, leather, tea, incense invites us to the pages of ‘War and Peace’ with its sparkling diamonds, military uniform, fur and royal wealth. Luxury fragrance of mysterious Russian soul.

3. Michelangelo, Onyrico



Even though the fragrance is for both men and women, here opens up strong and muscular heart sound - fig, and the base - labdanum. Launched in 2015 ‘Michelangelo’ is tasty, moist, full of figs and berries like a homemade pastry.

4. Iris Cendré, Naomi Goodsir


Absolutely favourite of mine. Beautiful masterpiece with a touch of sadness has notes of bergamot, iris, tobacco, amber and violet. The best ‘Iris Ash’ was created for wintertime, giving me shivers, that have nothing to do with cold.
