Everyone knows who is at least a little bit interested in stylistics that there are 4 main color types, which are determined by the color and shade of hair, skin and iris. The most contrasting color type is winter, which combines either jet black or platinum hair, a bright iris and a cold skin tone. But blond girls are much less common in this category, and therefore the brunette is considered the “classic” representative of winter, not the blonde.
Choosing a perfume for such a contrasting and vibrant woman is not easy if we want to emphasize this natural trait of a vamp woman — it must be rich, enveloping, even to some extent with a touch of passion. However, the choice of fragrance, of course, depends on personal taste, and in this article we will only select those fragrances that will be in harmony with the style and image of the winter girl.
Muscs Koublai Khan by Serge Lutens
This is a truly ambiguous fragrance, because it is created not only for women, but also for men. To emphasize the common nature of the stronger and the weaker sex, perfumer Christopher Sheldrake resorted to combinations that are unexpected for modern perfumery, which combine animal strength and tenderness. It was created in 1998 and since then it has been ambiguously perceived by many, but those who fell in love with it at first sight remain true after such a long time.
