Just like clothes, perfumes have their seasons. There are perfumes that work for hot weather and others that work for cold weather. This is determined by the scent tones and longevity of the wear. In cold weather, you need a mild scent with a long-lasting effect since dry skin, which comes with cold weather, doesn’t retain perfume as much as well-moisturized skin. Therefore, your favourite perfume during hot months might not be as pleasant during the cold months. Here are some great perfumes to try out during the cold weather.
