This is the perfect Christmas scent to me! I do not care for the strong pine or cinnamon scents that often accompany Christmas scents. This is very smooth, mellow scent, of what seems to me to be a smokey rose/raspberry. It's very intriguing & everyone that smells it, loves it. The candles I'm making for xmas presents, I named Christmas Memories, since that is what it reminds me of. Warm & inviting :) Enjoyable in the winter months for sure.
