When the colder weather comes knocking on your door, we retreat into fragrances that not only hold you close and keep you warm, but also ones that develop and perform well in the chilly temperatures. Dark Vanilla checks all of the winter weather boxes. The vanilla is lusciously warm and resinous, adding in just a touch of creamy sweetness. The black leather is worn yet supple with a dark, intense oud hiding in the background, waiting to reveal itself in the drydown. The most intriguing part, the myriad of spices that linger throughout. Pink peppercorn, saffron, cumin, cardamom, and coriander lay on top of patchouli oil, making this cold weather fragrance a top pick for us.
Notes include pink pepper, saffron, cumin, cardamom, lemon, coriander, sandalwood, black leather, oud, patchouli, vanilla, amber, and musk.
