It’s around this time of year that the cold starts losing its charm (the excitement of putting on a cute knit hat and giant infinity scarf only lasts for so long) and we start to feel a bit bleak. We dream of the far-off days of summer when margaritas are sipped in the sunshine, locks are naturally lightened and our skin gets that I-just-spent-a-day-at-the-beach glow (and if it’s faux, we’ll never tell). To help you hold out until the sun decides to show its face again (that tease!), we’ve put together a list of our favorite cold-weather scents to keep you cozy during winter.
