Above: 3 of our favourite holiday fragrances this year

You might be a creature of habit, but the holiday season is a great time to switch up your cologne. Besides, when it comes to cologne, the colder months pretty much demand a bolder scent. Here are three easy-to-wear everyday fragrances that you’ll love to spritz on this season.

The Eau: Azzaro, Pour Homme EDT

The Scent: Originally launched in 1978, this aromatic and earthy fragrance remains relevant with its blend of herbal notes, musky leather, soft spice and warm tonka bean, complete with a squeeze of zesty lemon. And while easily worn from day until daybreak, the amber-coloured liquid is perfect for snow days and fireside encounters. It’s available for $69 for 50 ml and $86 for 100 ml at the Hudson’s Bay stores across Canada.

The Eau: Gucci, Made to Measure Pour Homme EDT

The Scent: With a name like Made to Measure, it’s not surprising this sweetly spiced eau, and its bottle’s chic silhouette, embodies the Italian craftsmanship the fashion house is so renowned for. Luxurious amber, patchouli and leather weave through rich spices and delicate blooms leaving party-goers wanting more, long after you’ve gone home. It’s available for $80 for 50 ml and $104 for 90 ml at Sephora and the Hudson’s Bay [www.thebay.com] stores across Canada.

The Eau: Michael Kors, for Men EDT

The Scent: This second scent in the all-American designer’s fragrant repertoire for men is an intriguing hybrid of every-man accessibility and out-of-reach cool. Spicy sage, coriander, patchouli and black pepper; smoky incense; soft suede and musky wood are captured in the house’s sleek, signature, rectangular flacon. Sophisticated and sexy, this is one eau that’s equal parts naughty and nice. It’s available for $86 for 120 ml at the Hudson’s Bay stores across Canada.
