Spritz on a little Winter

I hesitated when Dasein Fragrance asked me to sample their new unisex fragrance, Winter. I know that unisex fragrance is a hot new trend but I just never liked it much – until now.

Winter was created by independent perfumer Sam Rader. It is a blend of blue spruce, forest pine, black cardamom, and French lavender. And it smells fabulous. The scent is sexy, complex and elegant. The warm, sexy resinous notes are perfect for colder weather.

It contains a rare forest pine essential oil from the twigs and blue-green needles of giant pines in the Austrian Alps.  French lavender absolute gives the scent a sweet, soft base and black cardamom gives it a spicy edge. The company says that each small batch is hand-blended and bottled.

If you are looking for a clean but sexy new fragrance to wear on snowy walks or après ski, you may want to try a little spritz of Winter.
