Winter Blooms: 3 Floral Fragrances That Will Lift Your Spirits This Season

When it comes to having a sensitive sniffer, florists rank up there with professional fragrance designers. A few months ago, we asked a select group of accomplished florists to give us their take on a few of our favorite spritzes. We loved their insights so much, we decided to send them another batch—just in time for winter’s best scents.

Florist: Sarah Brysk Cohen, Blossom and Branch

Fragrance: Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy Noir
Dominant notes: Sweet fruits, fig, and fresh baby powder.
Why it’s a good choice for winter: It’s sweet and crisp enough to break through the cold dry air.
What it makes you think of: This youthful scent makes me think of getting glammed up for a New Year's Eve fête in my 20’s!
If this scent were a flower, it would be: An aromatic garden rose—feminine but powerful.

Florist: Meredith Perez, Belle Fleur

Fragrance: Harvey Prince Journey
Dominant Notes: Dewy rose, clean jasmine, and orange blossom. I also smell hints of tropical flowers and a blond wood base, which help to round out and balance the fragrance.
Why it’s a good choice for winter: There is a cashmere-like note that warms up the florals.
What it makes you think of: Escaping winter! I am dreaming of French Polynesia.
If this scent were a flower, it would be: Frangipani, for sure. It has a tropical undertone that makes it really stand out.

Florist: Jennifer McGarigle, Floral Art

Fragrance: Atelier Orange Sanguine
Dominant notes: Bergamot and spice.
Why it’s a good choice for winter: It has a warm, sweet citrus quality to it.
What it makes you think of: A butterfly kiss because of its subtlety.
If this scent were a flower, it would be: A Fair Bianca White Garden Rose because of its combination of white flower and spicy notes.
