John-Paul's brief #2


08th January, 2000

My fragrance suggestion is for a masculine scent that captures the glory of Christmas morning.

For inspiration, I turn to a few lines from Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol:

"Running to the window, he opened it, and put out his head. No fog, no mist; clear, bright, jovial, stirring, cold; cold, piping for the blood to dance to; Golden sunlight; Heavenly sky; sweet fresh air; merry bells. Oh, glorious. Glorious."

The notes this conjures for me, at least, would include clean, natural scents like juniper and balsam, perhaps spiced up by ginger and brightened by a less common, special occasion citrus like plum or cranberry.

An uplifting scent for people with reason to celebrate!

        I really like this one the best out of the three John-Paul. It is so unique. Bayberry is another natural scent that may work with this one. I absolutely love the idea of adding a cranberry scent, as it is very underrated. It sounds like it would give the fragrance a bittersweet kick that would keep it very interesting when paired with the ginger that you mentioned.
