The cold weather has well and truly set in. With the new season comes a need to refresh your look for cooler days and while it’s normal practice to swap out lightweight linen for bulky knitwear, when it comes to your grooming kit, it can often be forgotten. As you would refresh your daily style, it’s also time to rework your go-to scent.

Though it can be hard to part with your refreshing spritz of citrus, we suggest swapping out your summer scent for a heavier cologne. In a bid to warm up your senses for a long and dreary winter ahead, we’ve rounded up the best new scents to add to your vanity this season.

gucci guilty cologne

Faced by Lana Del Rey and Jared Leto, the classic Gucci Guilty scent was reimagined for a new generation of luxury lovers. Following its launch earlier this year, the Italian fashion house has ushered in its cologne iteration. Featuring Spanish Cypress Essence as well as the familiar notes of Heliotropine and Violet, the warmth of this latest fragrance comes from its dry down effect of Patchouli and leaves the lingering scent of warm Cedar Wood and White Musks.
