December 5: Winter scents!  What EDTs are you wearing?  What candles are you burning?  What other scents say "holiday" to you?

 

Since I have a bag full of samples I am trying to work through them..

 

I do love Maison Margiela 'REPLICA' By the Fireplace  for this time of year.

 

Definitely the scent of pine says holidays to me.  

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

This is such a classic scent @CorgiMommy, even I like it and I usually gravitate towards florals/fruity scents.

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@AznAngelLiz it is a perfect winter scent

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@CorgiMommy I have not had the chance to try By The Fireplace yet, but Beach Walk is one of my all time favorite summer scents so maybe by the fireplace will evoke the same winter-time feeling for me 🙂

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@CorgiMommy @QueenMarceline  Beach Walk is soooo good, I totally agree with you gals! 🤩💙

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

December 1: How will you incorporate pink into the season? I don't think I will be. 

December 2: What's the first thing you do to kick off winter? Pout and cuss at the snow and cold.

December 3: What holiday nail trend would you love to try? None 😔 I did see these cute sweater  embossing things that looked fun. 

December 4: What fashion are you into right now?  Do you prefer old stand-bys, or are there new trends this year that have caught your eye? I'm going back to graphic tees and I love big chunky and also ugly sweaters.

December 5: Winter scents!  What EDTs are you wearing?  What candles are you burning?  What other scents say "holiday" to you? I've got a Tis the Season BBW candle going and I alternate various wax melts for winter/fall season scents. 

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

Love your Dec 2 comment @Samtian. My dream is to become a snowbird so I don’t have to deal with cold weather.

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@Loretta55 That is the best dream!

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

Fingers are crossed that one day I can make it come true @Samtian.

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@Samtian I also pout and fuss at the cold and snow. 🤣

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@Samtianthe candles sound like fun, stay cozy

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

December 4: What fashion are you into right now?  Do you prefer old stand-bys, or are there new trends this year that have caught your eye?

 

I am most definitely not on trend. I prefer classic options that keep me warm and comfy this time of year. 

 

 

December 5: Winter scents!  What EDTs are you wearing?  What candles are you burning?  What other scents say "holiday" to you?

 

So many good scents for this time of year, it's almost hard to choose favorites. For perfumes, I'm bouncing back and forth between KILIAN Paris Apple Brandy Eau de Parfum 1.7 oz/ 50 mL Eau de Parfum Spray and Jo Malone London Ginger Biscuit Cologne 3.4 oz / 100 ml eau de parfum spray. For candles, VOLUSPA Noble Fir Garland Glass Jar Candle, Maison Margiela REPLICA By the Fireplace Candle 5.82 oz / 165 g 1 wick candle, and Yankee Candle's Christmas Eve. I also love a classic pot of orange, cinnamon, and clove boiled on the stovetop to fill up the kitchen with yummy scents. 

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@quspork  warm is definitely on point for the season.  I love Maison Margiela 'REPLICA' By the Fireplace  too.

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

December 5: Winter scents!  What EDTs are you wearing?  What candles are you burning?  What other scents say "holiday" to you?

 

Feeling very cozy with Maison Margiela REPLICA By the Fireplace Candle 5.82 oz / 165 g 1 wick candle !

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@Kim888 one if my favorites too

December 1: How will you incorporate pink into the season?
I have vintage pink ornaments up on the tree and a couple of Pink Holiday themed mugs! I would love to find Ponk christmas pyjamas.

 

December 2: What's the first thing you do to kick off winter? I take my kids sledding (weather permitting), we put up and decorate our Christmas tree and do a great deal of Christmas baking starting early in the season.

 

December 3: What holiday nail trend would you love to try? Just a nice red or green nail is my jam! I picked up some christ

as nail stickers for my daughter and I to use 🎅🏻 

 

December 4: What fashion are you into right now?  Do you prefer old stand-bys, or are there new trends this year that have caught your eye? I love that people are wearing velvet this season! It’s such fun fabric and when I see it in ruby red and emerald green it just makes me think of Christmas! I have a midnight blue silly top that is my favourite for the winter season with some cute jeans or a cute maxi skirt. I need to pick up some velvet pieces ♥️

 

 

December 5: Winter scents!  What EDTs are you wearing?  What candles are you burning?  What other scents say "holiday" to you? Juliette Has a Gun Not A Perfume is seriously perfect for all seasons on me, people never stop complimenting me on it and always ask delightfully, “what is that smell?!” I also am loving Carolina Herrera Good Girl Eau de Parfum for this season. 

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@bakeamuffin Vintage pink ornaments sound so beautiful! Sledding was my favorite childhood winter activity to do ❤️ I totally agree with you, absolutely adore velvet in particular, red and blue velvet. Also, fantastic fragrance choices CH Good Girl is one of my all time favorites (never met a perfume by her I didn't adore, tbh) and JHAG Not a Perfume also holds a special place in my heart. 😍

 

Happy Holidays! 🤗

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

Unfortunately this question doesn’t apply to me because my husband is scent sensitive. I can wear Josie Maran Whipped Argan Oil Body Butter with no issue. 

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

@bakeamuffin I love velvet also.  

Re: BIC's 2023 Holiday Fun and Year End Countdown!!!

December 4: What fashion are you into right now?  Do you prefer old stand-bys, or are there new trends this year that have caught your eye?

 

During the month of December, I wear as many holiday sweatshirts as I can. I'm wearing my Peanuts/Snoopy ones this week and will cycle through some ugly sweaters next week. 

 

I'm also really liking that wide leg/relax fit jeans are back in style, I can finally pull out some old jeans from the back of my closet.
