All about fragrances > What fragrance to wear during winter

When temperatures begin to drop gradually, the urge to wear a hot, spicy and warmer fragrance becomes present. And for the coming season, fragrances with oriental notes and gourmet aromas are on the rise. BelleMag tells you which notes are to be preferred for the long evenings in front of the fireplace ...

Every scent is a question of nose

With more than 30 million olfactory cells, a human being can differentiate between 10,000 odors. These will be transmitted in a fraction of seconds to the right region of the brain, responsible for the emotions. This explains that an odor is associated most of the time with a memory, an emotion, like the madeleine of Proust. "With the arrival of winter, we focus mainly on hot and thick perfumes," says Manuela Pfannes-Völkel - that's why those with thick notes that coat, are perfect when the days are shortening and that the air becomes cold and dry.

Hot notes for Cold days

are all attributes that describe the scents contained in the fragrances for Autumn-Winter.
