Including the perfect cuffing season scent.
It's not rocket science why winter fragrance launches tend to lean warm and cozy. When the weather outside is freezing and the days are short, you understandably do what it takes to avoid feeling cold — like spritzing on a scent with spicy and woodsy notes on top of bundling up in a sweater, scarf, and beanie.
On the flip side, because fragrance has the power to mentally transport you somewhere else, a fresh, floral scent can serve uplifting reminder that longer, sunny, spring days will eventually return.
Byredo Eyes Closed Eau de Parfum
