Floris Seasonal Spice
It's still so warm out here but I can't get my mind out of cooler weather fragrance, I can't wait to my fragrances that are heavy in woods and spices. While shopping the other day at Marshalls I found a bottle of Floris' Seasonal Spice Room Spray for $5.99 so I bought it in the hope that it would be a nice scent to smell not only in the air but possibly on me. I expected this to smell like the cloved oranges that some people decorate their homes with in the winter.
Seasonal Spice is described on the Floris website as a warm, welcoming seasonal winter fragrance to create a festive atmosphere, banish those chilly days and dark nights - spicy orange, cloves and cinnamon blended together with a hint of brandy.
The notes in Seasonal Spice are:
Top: Citrus- Fruity, Orange, Lemon
Middle: Spicy - Cinnamon, Clove, Nutmeg
Bottom: Woody, Musky, Sweet, Vanilla
I did a spot application to make sure it wouldn't irritate my skin. It starts off with a lot of orange, cinnamon is the most predominant spice and I would have preferred more spices than anything else in this fragrance. There is a slight hint of vanilla in here but that's about it. This is a really nice scent as both a room fragrance or one to wear.
I'd love to layer this with a fragrance that enhances the notes in here. The staying power is fairly good given the fact that this was a spot application, i'd be more likely to apply this to my clothes than the skin because my skin did react to the cinnamon as it always does - sometimes I suffer to smell fabulous!
Seasonal Spice Room Spray retails for $25/3.4 oz. and is sold through Floris.
