#TheWinterProject #3: Winter Scents

Evening oh gorgeous ones!  Time for another installment of #TheWinterProject.  This week we are focusing on Winter Scents.  For this post, I'm gonna be discussing a few of the perfumes and candles that I'm currently enjoying this season!


L to R - The Body Shop Coconut Body Mist - Britney Spears Midnight Fantasy - Hugo Boss Deep Red
These are just a few of the scents I've been opting for on a regular basis recently.

The Body Shop Coconut Body Mist £7.50 - I wouldn't necessarily say this is strictly a 'winter' scent, as coconut is usually linked to summer.  But I've been loving this recently, just spraying it all over my body after my shower and it just adds a lovely fresh hint of coconut without being too overpowering.  I am definitely going to check out the other scents in the range.

Britney Spears Midnight Fantasy £20 100ml - I don't know if I've mentioned before, how much of a HUGE fan I am of the Britney Spears Fantasy perfumes.  I absolutely LOVE the original (in the red bottle), which I use all year round... but I am LOVING this one for the winter months:

Top Notes
Black Cherry, Framboise, Plum

Middle Notes
Night Blooming Orchid, Iris, Freesia

Base Notes
Amber, Musk, Vanilla

Hugo Boss Deep Red - I've had this perfume for a few years now, and always seem to dig it out when Winter arrives.  Think it's due to it's top notes of blackcurrant and orange - sounds like some sort of mulled wine perfume - lol.  Sooo Christmassy:

Top Notes
Blackcurrant, Pear, Tangerine, Blood Orange

Middle Notes
Ginger Leaves, Freesia, Hibiscus

Base Notes
Sandalwood, Californian Cedar, Vanilla, Musk

I've noticed there's quite a few notes the same in both perfumes.  Obviously I'm a big fan of vanilla and musk - lol.


I actually wrote a post recently (here) on how much of a huge fan I am of the Yankee Candle Wax Tarts, so I won't bang on about them again too much, other than say again that I LOVE WINTER WONDERLAND!! It's my favourite all time Yankee Candle scent, we get it every year and and it just reminds us of Christmas and joy! Awww.

Anyway, in that post I wrote about how I was probably going to buy a large jar in one of the scents we love.  So my Hubby surprised me last week and had one burning in another of our favourite Winter scents when I arrived home one day (bless).

Yankee Candle Sparkling Snow
Yankee Candle Sparkling Snow - We didn't get the Tart version of this scent this year and I'd actually forgotten how much I love it.  Hubby doesn't miss a trick and remembered how much we both loved it last year, so he made the splurge and ordered the big jar.  We have been burning it every night and it fills the house with weet, piney, fruity gorgeousness! Perfect for Winter!!

So there you have it.  My favourite Wintry scents!
Look forward to seeing what everyone else is loving this season!
