The delicious scents flowing through homes this time of year couldn't be more magical. Wood-burning fires, evergreen trees, freshly baked cookies...We can't get enough! And the season's most popular perfumes are equally as intoxicating. Packed with rich notes of deep berries, citruses, musks, spice, and everything nice (see what we did there?), these seasonal fragrances are moody, romantic, and perfect for winter weddings.
If you're getting married this winter, here are some of our favorite scents to rock down the cold-weather aisle.
Edition 03 by Goop
This woodsy scent is just the warming, smokey fragrance you want for a winter wedding (if you're not afraid of perfumes that could be unisex—we know we aren't!). A bit masculine at the get, this perfume transforms into an incense-reminiscent scent (it is described, after all, as "forbidden spices and holy woods") and slowly diminishes in strength over time, leaving a light and lingering trail by day's end.

Tonka 25 by Le Labo
If you love Le Labo, you're going to have an actual obsession with Tonka 25, their new scent. It smells like everything you dream of when imagining something sophisticated, complex, and cool without trying too hard. It's the kind of scent you'll smell on an elevator or walking behind someone on a sidewalk and have no shame asking what it is because it's just that good. It's musky, smokey, woodsy, and addictive.

Sel Santal by Clean
Sel Santal is a unisex scent, and has the sexiness you want from santal without being overpowering. It also (as the brand name suggests) has a bit of a cleanness to it that feels more crisp than a lot of other santal-based perfumes. It ends up unfolding with a little sweetness (thanks to iris and violet) without being cloying, the sophistication of the spiciness fading a bit without disappearing.

No.04 Bois de Balincourt by Maison Louis Marie
This sandalwood and cedarwood-based scent has a subtle sweetness but mainly lots of light and airy warmth. We love an oil for your wedding day—it clings to the skin and is long-lasting.
SHOP NOW: Need Supply Co., $57
Just because it’s winter doesn’t mean you can’t embrace a sweet scent. Perfectly bold but bright, hints of white musk balance the spice and sweetness—hence the name. Bold caramel combines with powdery notes and vanilla for a flirty and feminine fragrance that's perfect for your wedding day.

Alien by Mugler
This bold, distinct perfume combines notes of cashmeran wood, ambergris, and jasmine sambac that work together for a warm and sensual aroma. While it can be worn in any season, there’s something about this that makes you warm up in the cold. Consider layering it with the complementing body wash and cream for the ultimate scent-sual experience.

Dark Amber & Ginger Lily cologne by Jo Malone
If you love scents that have a natural vibe, Jo Malone fragrances are an excellent option. The Dark Amber & Ginger Lily cologne is refreshing yet lean, with a unique combination of amber, black orchid, black cardamom, ginger, and water lily. A little bit spicy and equal parts clean and floral, it’s a great option for those looking for something different but beautiful.

Gucci Guilty Absolute Pour Femme
While the name doesn’t scream “wedding,” the scent certainly does. With just the right balance of spicy patchouli, blackberry, Goldenwood, and Bulgarian rose, this fragrance is mysteriously fruity, yet still bold enough to make it a serious contender for your signature winter scent.

Aerin Tangier Vanille
Warm, comforting vanilla is always a good idea, especially for the season. With added notes of amber, sandalwood, musk, Bulgarian Rose, and bergamot, this perfume boasts the unmistakable fragrance of Madagascar vanilla, making it enigmatic, warm, and exceptionally sexy.

Reminiscent of a sweet hot toddy, this warm scent is a mixture of vanilla bourbon, oakwood, and tuberose. With a boldness that is sultry and modern, this exclusive fragrance will be sure to turn heads, which you’ll already be doing, of course.
