One question our Familia shoppers often ask us is, "Why do perfumes smell better in the colder weather?"
Why do Perfumes and Colognes Smell Better in Cold Weather?
Perfumes and colognes often smell better in colder weather due to the way temperature affects the evaporation and diffusion of fragrance molecules. In cooler temps, these fragrances evaporate more slowly, allowing the scent to linger longer and unfold more gradually, revealing its various notes in a more pronounced manner.
Cold air is also typically less humid, which can make scents seem more crisp and pronounced, as moisture in the air can sometimes dilute or alter the perception of a fragrance. Additionally, the contrast between the warmth of the body and the cool air can enhance the perception of the scent, making it feel more vibrant and distinctive.
