Sometimes I'm afraid of the "green" Yule-time scents, and I even had a blend named "Mistletoe" from another company once that really did not work for me at all.Gretna Green, on the other hand, is everything I would want from a mistletoe scent. The green is there, and there's a touch of earthiness, but it's just so balanced and pleasant.There is so much sweet foodiness this December update that I'm wonderfully overwhelmed. But don't overlook the Gretna Green! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
