Life bottled: ski seasons scents, sorted

By Lauren Carbran

It’s time to take to the slopes! Yes, ski season is well and truly here – and whether you’re planning on skiing 24/7, partying your salopettes off, or just want to keep cosy by the fire, we’ve got the perfume for you…

11For the slopes

We know you – you always catch the first chairlift to the slopes and are the last down. And that’s what skiing’s all about, hey? Correct. So, while you’re zooming down that black run or tackling the moguls, make sure you’re wearing a fresh, outdoorsy scent. We suggest Davidoff Cool Water Woman for her (inspired by lakes in the Bavarian Alps), which combines melon, lemon and water lily. Or for him, Hugo Boss Boss Bottled Unlimited is just divine, thanks to the mix of iced violet leaves and mint. Skiing never smelt so good…

22For the chalet

You’ll definitely need a luxurious fragrance if your winter days consist of lounging by the fire after a day in the snow after a long day of skiing. Grab Lancôme La Vie Est Belle Shimmer for her, a perfect mix of hazelnut and orange blossom, or Paco Rabanne 1 Million Privé for him, which smells of cinnamon and mandarin. What else could keep you cosy and warm? Couple with a blanket and mulled wine for extra comfort…

33For après ski

Live music and Champagne showers on top of a mountain? Um, yes please! But while you’re partying hard, you’ll want to smell incred too. That’s why you’ll definitely need Marc Jacobs Divine Decadence for her (Champagne and honeysuckle) or, if you’re a guy, Tom Ford Black Orchid (chocolate and blackcurrant). Warning: you may not be able to comprehend just how good you smell. Let the après ski begin…

44For fondue night

Mmmm, fondue night is here! And while you’re getting WAY too excited about the cheese, you may want to think about spritzing a sweet scent so you don’t smell like cheddar for the rest of the holiday. Our top pick is Yves Saint Laurent Mon Paris for her, a delightful duo of pear and orchid, or Hugo Boss Boss Bottled Intense for him, which smells like an apple crumble, thanks to the notes of cinnamon, apple and vanilla. Yum.
