Sixteen92 Wintering is part of Sixteen92's Legacy Collection. It was originally released with the Winter 2014 Collection. This is a new and reformulated version of the original 2014 release. This version is similar to the original but has been updated and improved. It is also vegan-safe. Wintering is a cozy wintry atmospheric/gourmand fragrance with spicy honey and tobacco notes. The crunch of Fall’s last leaves underfoot, fragile and frost-blanketed. Dry hay bales, chilled earth, and thick honey warmed with gingerbread-spiced vanilla bean. With notes of absolutes of hay and tobacco; beeswax accord; a spot of rare, aged patchouli; smoky black vanilla bean; and warm, spiced gingerbread. Wintering is a parfum extrait. 

Sixteen92 produces small-batch fine fragrance inspired by history, literature, lore and magic. 


The Fragrance Files: Bitter in the vial from what I can only assume is the tobacco, this one on skin reads as a spicy comforting chai with a touch of waxiness. I’m going to guess that some of the spice comes from hay, but the cinnamon, clove, and vanilla come in strong. The patchouli adds a faint dirtiness to this one that I kind of love.

In Thought and Memory: Is hay sweet? Does it smell kind of like wheat? Because that’s how the opening of Wintering appears to me. Beyond the ‘hay smelling element’ to me, I also get the gingerbread and honey parts, warm and sweet behind the hay. The clove here is restrained and toned down, thankfully, because clove isn’t a good note on me. Strangely, I don’t detect any patchouli at all, and Wintering doesn’t really feel like a winter sort of scent to me. It feels more autumnal, like one of those ‘autumn is coming to an end, and people are baking bread’ except now that I think of it, gingerbread is more of a winter food… for autumn, it would be pumpkins. But overall, a well-behaved perfume that doesn’t changes much, so if you want a dry and warm, sweet but not cloyingly so type of scent, Wintering would be a good choice.
