Winter perfume

As the nights start drawing in and Christmas fast approaches, we may find ourselves looking for a winter perfume.

There are many who wear the same fragrance all year round whether it’s a summer or a winter scent.

Absolutely nothing wrong with this as summer or winter perfumes can be worn all year round.

Those who embrace the change in seasons, along with a whole new wardrobe, are also on the lookout for a new winter fragrance.

Along with the choice of different perfume on the market, the rising cost of a new bottle of spritz can easily set you back a few pounds.

So how can we have a winter fragrance in our possession without breaking the bank ?


Back in 2004, FM Cosmetics was created.

What makes them so unique ?

FM uses the same fragrance oil as the designers and pick fragrance notes from the same fragrance families.

So although their scent may be extremely alike to a designer perfume, they have their own unique scent (not copied), price tag and packaging.

Long lasting fragrances

Those may question how a fragrance can be long-lasting if it’s much cheaper to buy.
Take a look for an insight into their perfume.

I have hand-picked a selection of men and women fragrances created by FM.

Affordable and alternative fragrances

Shop online at FM World 


There are many alternatives online when it comes to men and women’s fragrances.

Lots of ‘copies’ which are usually diluted scents, packaged in the same box and a fancy bottle. They look identical to the real product. We try the scent and realize it either doesn’t smell anything like how we imagined or it only lasts a few hours.

It’s only then that we realize that we’ve bought a fake product.

Markets are notorious for selling fake brands so beware.

So how else can we save money on our favourite perfume or cologne without going down the ‘copied’ route ?


Several of the FM fragrances also come in an Intense range and pheromones.

Let’s now take a look at the male selection for winter.

    It is quite a good selection of perfumes for the seasons. I think they are affordable because the contents are small while retaining the quality. 

    As highlighted in the article and from experience, there are some perfumes that really do not have anything to go by and one may not realize it until after the purchase. So it is worth giving FM products a try.

      Thank you. Yes, we still provide unique fragrances with amazing quality but with a more affordable budget for everyone and having samples for all of our perfumes helps customers with their purchase in choosing the right scent just for them.
