Archive: The Ghost of Christmas Past


Recommended Posts



The olfactory reminiscence of all the Christmases past: verdant aspects of poinsettia, mistletoe, and spruce with a touch of vetiver, the sylvan secrets of walnut, tree bark and pine sap, with a haunting emanation of freshly-turned earth, resins and dry vanilla...and just a faint impression of the charred remains of a once-festive fire. A unisex holiday blend: wintery green with a ghostly earthiness which will appeal to those who prefer their holidays just the slightest bit spooky...
