Aptly named sweet, fruity, spicy blend with fir balsam
Pineward Perfumes Christmas Wine is, I believe, a seasonal offering from this 2020-launched house out of western US whose inspirations mainly include the outdoors and particularly pine trees.

Christmas Wine is yet another example of a great mix of woody, spicy, sweet, and resinous elements, with a note listing of cranberry, plum, blood orange, cloves, nutmeg, fir balsam. So it’s plenty fruity, a quite sweet, a bit tart, with significant woody underpinning, dense and dark enough that, like most of the house’s offerings, it’s clearly better for colder weather and in line with the current winter season in the northern hemisphere.

The juice is dark and strong, as, with other releases from the house, Christmas Wine is compounded at a extrait concentration, 30%+, reminiscent of Slumberhouse releases, and similarly, I would liken this scent in particular (as I did with another) to the stewed fruit aspect of Slumberhouse Baque and Mond, albeit somewhat better than Baque but in a comparable style to both scents.

The pricing is fairly consistent with the rest of the line, as well, with a newer, larger size having been made available, seemingly for all scents in the catalogue: $220/128/80 for 57/37/17ml.

I continue to by impressed by Pineward’s offerings, loving the vast majority of the fragrances I’ve sampled, and I still have some more to go.

Christmas for Coneheads...
Christmas Wine opens with the faintest dash of plumed orange with underlying coniferous green fir immediately detectable. As the composition enters its early heart the coniferous fir takes the fore in a big way, supported by a slightly tart cranberry spiked mulled wine accord. During the late dry-down the mulled wine accord gradually fades before vacating, as the fir looses most of its pungent green facet, leaving the now soft, near-powdery coniferous remnants to take command through the finish. Projection is good and longevity is very good to excellent at around 11 hours on skin.

Wow, what a surprise this perfume was. With a title "Christmas Wine," I nearly dismissed the perfume out of hand, believing it really wouldn't be my kind of thing at all... I was wrong. In truth, the extremely well-done coniferous green aspect melds surprisingly well with the tart mulled red wine accord to create a winning result not wholly unlike that of the very good Fille en Aiguilles by Serge Lutens, though I think I like Christmas Wine more. If there was anything I would improve on, it mainly is the perfume proves highly linear. In truth, that in and of itself is really not a deficiency, but more of a personal preference that this writer can easily look past and enjoy the perfume for what it is. The bottom line is the $128 per 37ml extrait bottle Christmas Wine is a "very good" to "excellent" 3.5 to 4 stars out of 5 rated winner from relatively new house Pineward Perfume whose current and future releases demand attention, earning it a strong recommendation to "cone heads," like myself in particular.
