In brief: Nose
In general, breathing through your nose humidifies and warms the air you inhale, making it more gentle to your airways.

In brief: Nose
The nose warms and humidifies the air we breath.
Breathing cold air can trigger bronchospasm/asthma in some patients with asthma, so breathing through the nose is best to avoid the direct introduction of cold air to the lungs.
