  • Spicy — Connotes fragrances which obtain their notes from several sources; actual spices such as cinnamon, cloves, ginger and cardamom; and flowers that possess traces of spicy notes such as carnation and lavender.
  • Woodsy Mossy — Fragrances with unmistakably clean, clear crispness; Sandalwood, sage, cedar and other aromatic woods are combined with earthy oak moss and fern to create scents refreshingly “foresty”.
