    Question Is there holiday Spice type of scent?

    I got a strange idea one day when I opened up a can of "Spiced Christmas tea"...(I know, I know, quite out of season as it is summer) but it smelled nice. So fall is coming up soon, then winter, and I just wana know if there is something that smells kinda like a holiday spice. Ya know, something with cinnamon, vanilla, and a hint of citrus...so when the season is right, I can wear it. Not really anything like bay rum, or Old Spice, and probably not Stetson or Pino, (all of which are kinda spicy and sweet) but something genuinely old school, classic, holiday spice...

    I know this is very out of season thing to ask, but, whateverz, I got nothing else to do so may as well...So then what may I be looking for?

    Try Sung Homme, spicy and coniferous, to me it smells like Christmas.

    John Varvatos Vintage for some reason reminds me of Christmas

    Fille en Aiguilles by Serge Lutens and Aqua Allegoria Winter Delice (discontiued) by Guerlain are the first two that come to mind.

    Serge Lutens Arabie has that christmas-spice candle thing going on in spades.

    Encens Flamboyant by Goutal might also have that particular vibe you're going for.

    Burberry London is not a bad suggestion, not bad at all.

    L'eau Diptyque is centered on a very Christmas-ey clove note, you might want to try that.

    La Nuit de Noel, from Caron, is exactly a construction of christmas spices.

    PG: Un Crime Exotique.

    Notes include vanilla, gingerbread, sweet tea, cinnamon and star anise.

    Unwearable to me, but sounds like it might be just what you're looking for. Happy Holidays!

    I love this genre. Here are my top three choices:

    Serge Lutens Fille En Aiguilles

    Pine, spice, exceedingly Christmas-y.

    Comme des Garcons Eau de Parfum

    Intensely spicy cinnamon-clove-honey monster.

    Bhiel AL02

    Deliciously rich, spicy, stewed-fruit compote smell.

    Designer: Cartier Declaration
    Niche: Endymion by Penhaligons (not exactly Christmas spice, but still a very luxurious and intricate gourmand, with mocha, chocolate and woody-spicy undertones, indeed with something both wintry and yet very youthfully sensual and alluring about it)

    I like Burberry London but I'm surprised at all these mentions. I don't get a big burst of spice from it at all.

    Another BN'er for Serge Lutens Arabie. Sometimes compared by its detractors to fruitcake, which is too fine a point on it but not entirely nuts.
