Skeletal limbs of birch and fir coated in a thick, impenetrable blanket of snow. This is the death of the year personified.


This is quite beautiful. I'm getting the lab's snow/slush note, but it's not overly aquatic, or 'clean' smelling. Kind of like Monastery in the Mountains, but no sweet vanilla here, more of a birch syrup. I can't remember quite what The Girl smelled like, but I think they share some characteristics here. This is fresh and clean smelling, and I may try to hunt down some more, it's different, and quite lovely.

This is for the 2012 version.

 

 

In the bottle: Minty woods, with a hint of something sweet, probably the birch.

 

Wet: Much the same as on cold sniff.

 

The dry-down: Lovely winter outdoors scent that doesn't really morph. A bit more dry woods, and less like fresh green fir branches. The snow note is the minty one, and the birch (perhaps the birch bark) adds that touch of wonderful sweetness. Btw, this had more of the fir note on the SO. I love this on both of us. :)

Reminds me a lot of the frostbitten note in the snowdrift series. The cold, icy, silvery scent dominates on me. I get hints of pine, reminding me of icy, snow covered evergreen. Overall the scent has an almost airy/bubbly quality to it.

2019:

 

Whoa, SPRITE, where'd you come from? I'd welcome an errant visit from an Ariel or a Puck in an ambrosial blend...but that's not the kind of Sprite I'm talking about. Yes, good old fashioned soft drink kind, bubbly and effervescent, almost a twist of lime in it. It's an odd thing to find amongst the fainter notes of fir, the almost non-existent woods. Everything is draped in a heavy blanket of fizzy soda snow, and I'm not sure I'm here for it!

2019 version. Wet, the evergreen and minty note (eucalyptus?) are strong and slightly medicinal to my nose. The scent becomes much sweeter as it dries, to a pleasant fir and birch forest with just a hint of cold from the mint. I like this, but it reminds me a bit of Ranger, which I probably like slightly better.

2019 version.

 

This is all about a mentholic, bright, citric snow. It definitely contains eucalyptus, which lasts on me throughout wear. It's more of a snow scent than a forest scent, with the tree notes not being super distinct on my skin and just peeking out through a blanket of snow.

 

I think this would be the kind of scent that would be nice to wear on sick days, because of the eucalyptus, or on days you just need something refreshing to pick you up. But I cannot see myself wearing this regularly, so I may end up passing on my decant to a friend that enjoys this sort of scent on the regular.
