    Aqua Allegoria Winter Delice by Guerlain

    A wonderful melange of smells I associate with growing up through Northeast US winters.... the smell of the woods outside and then coming inside to smell a fireplace, cookies baking, and spiced cider. The initial blast of pine and spice (cinnamon and/or nutmeg to my nose) is pretty intense but mellows quickly into a ginger/pine/incense accord. The accord eventually sweetens a touch with a little vanilla, and the entire composition is comfortably musky. Perhaps it's just my association with the spices that are featured, but I could sweat I almost get a rum note reminiscent of a rum spiked cider. The only other fragrance I've smelled that is similar is Winter Woods EdP by Sonoma Scent Studio, which also captures the 'winter spice' vibe perfectly.

    As mikeperez says, find this quick before the e-tailers are all out.
