The scent of Winter and Christmas markets
If you've ever been to a Christmas market, this is the smell you can easily recognize. I've read the other reviews here but I couldn't completely agree with any of these. In this fragrance you can small hot mulled (spiced) wine, apple cinnamon pie and vanilla. The most prominent in the opening is the spicy Pimento aroma (i.e. smell that can be described as a mixture of cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon with the accent on cloves). One of the aroma chemicals listed in the ingredients - Eugenol also has this cloves smell. Therefore, the opening resembles spiced wine including relatively small amounts of citrus and grapefruit aroma chemicals. After some time you get more of an "apple pie" feel, where cloves (pimento) are not so prominent now, but cinnamon and vanilla-almond (coumarin-benzyl benzoate). What is left in the base is nice balsamic/woody skin scent. To summarize, this is a very very nice winter spicy/gourmand formulation! Even though I am a big fan of fresh fragrances I have to appreciate a very nice blend. Really good one - winter in a bottle. Cheers!
