As the nights start drawing in and Christmas approaches rapidly, many of us may find ourselves in search of the perfect winter perfume. Some people prefer to wear the same fragrance throughout the year, whether it’s a summer scent or a winter one. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with this approach, as certain fragrances can be versatile enough to be worn year-round.
However, for those who relish the change in seasons and look forward to updating their wardrobe accordingly, finding a new winter fragrance is part of the excitement. With a wide array of perfume choices on the market, the increasing cost of a new bottle of fragrance can easily dent your budget.
So, how can we add a winter fragrance to our collection without breaking the bank? In 2004, FM World was created.
The company has grown over the years to provide fragrances that are not only affordable but also long-lasting and unique. With the use of simplistic bottles, no fancy packaging, or celebrity endorsers, FM has created over 200 fragrances for both men and women.
What makes them so unique? FM uses the same fragrance oils as the designers and selects fragrance notes from the same fragrance families. So, while their scents may closely resemble designer perfumes, they have their distinctive aroma (not copied), price tag, and packaging.
Long lasting fragrances
Some may question how a fragrance can be long-lasting when it’s much cheaper to purchase. Take a closer look for an insight into their perfumes. I have hand-picked a selection of men’s and women’s fragrances created by FM.

Affordable and alternative fragrances
There are many alternatives online when it comes to men’s and women’s fragrances. Many of these are ‘copies,’ which are typically diluted scents packaged in the same box with a fancy bottle that looks identical to the real product. We try the scent and realize it either doesn’t smell anything like we imagined or it only lasts a few hours.
It’s only then that we realize 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 resorting to buying copied products?
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.
