Winter Fragrance Flowchart

Capsule Jaunt

Editor's Pick: Sweet

Capsule JAUNT Eau de Parfum, $38
Rose and black vanilla give this scent a pleasant sweetness, while cedar, tobacco, and tamboti wood keep it nice and mellow.

Arquiste Aleksandr

Editor's Pick: Warm

Arquiste Aleksandr, $165
Pairing bitter neroli and violet leaf with the rustic scent of leather, this fiery fragrance draws inspiration from novelist Aleksandr Pushkin.

ODIN Semma

Editor's Pick: Earthy

ODIN New York 11 Semma, $165
Blending far-flung aromas like myrrh, cinnamon, tobacco, and pepper, this soulful cologne is reminiscent of a spice trader's knapsack.

Juniper Ridge Backpacker's Cologne

Editor's Pick: Woodsy

Juniper Ridge Backpackers Cologne (Caruthers Canyon), $55
Made with wildcrafted ingredients from the Oregon backcountry, this pine-scented blend of conifer, moss, and sagebrush is an instant whiff of the mountains.

English Laundry Notting Hill

Editor's Pick: Classic

English Laundry Notting Hill Eau de Parfum, $70-$85
Bergamot, peppercorn, sandalwood, and amber give this old-school cologne a truly timeless appeal. Think Cary Grant, black tie galas, and brandy on the rocks.
