  1. It starts out a little bit “Christmas in a craft store,” but with a lot more pine. There’s a little bit of a whiff of cold air when my wrist is away from my face. Over time it slowly turned into mostly sweet, sticky, sappy tree bark that has a crust of frost over it. Almost a hint of maple or dark honey.

    This one makes me think of when you’ve got a permit to go cut your own Christmas tree, and you still smell spices from the hot drink you’ve brought with you, but mostly you smell trees and snow and the warm knit scarf you’re wearing.

  2. This is VERY aquatic for me with a hint of pine in the background. I don’t get any snow out of it. It smells generally “perfumey” on me. If you amp aquatics this might not work for you.

  3. Be still my heart. I have a soft spot for pine scents, and this is a beautiful one. Lots of fresh evergreens under a blanket of snow. There’s something slightly sweet in there, but not in a cloying way at all. It makes me nostalgic for something, but I’m not sure what. This is a masterpiece, and I’m glad I have a bottle. Completely in love.

  4. If you amp pine scents like I do, this one turned out to be all pine. I completely missed the snow note, but the berries is slightly noticeable over the pine.
