Cozy woods and amber, all cuddled up together by a crackling fire. This is a perfect autumn to winter scent – a warm swirl of burnished wood, smoke, musk and leather, with a generous serving of sweet, honeyed amber to soften all the edges. Smooth and comforting.

It's pure love when I first smelled this! I live in the tropics so we don't have winters here, but I do long for that warm, comforting woody scent when the weather gets a bit colder. And this is it! It's comfy and smoky and a bit sweet but not gourmand. Just perfect!

I am new to this whole review thing, but here goes. I have always been a spicy,sandalwoody kind of girl. But Winter Woods is so much more/different than that.As soon as I put some of the sample on my wrist, I was smitten. I continued to smell it every few minutes, and it subtly changed into a more smoky, mossy, comfy,inviting fragrance as I wore it. This is my new favorite perfume!!!!!! My favorite time of year is Fall/Christmas/Winter, and this one fits that bill and more. It has exceeded my expectations and then some. I will be asking my husband for this one for Christmas! No,change that to now! I can't wait that long!!!!!

Very accurately named, I get wood smoke, tree sap, incense, and mulled cider. It is a little too strong for me to consider buying a full bottle of. I sprayed once before going to bed and my pajamas the next morning reeked of it. But if you're a fan of Slumberhouse fragrances or Cdg's Incense series, you'll like this.

It's an interesting scent, but too "smoky" for me.

Christmas is all I can think when smelling this. The RIYL description is dead on... it smells like mulled cider and a fire. It is warm and spicy, cozy and intriguing. I was worried by the description that it might be too masculine but it doesn't wear that way at all. I would love to drench my house in this scent during the holidays. Clove is not one of the notes listed but it is the primary scent I get from this delectable perfume.
