    This was branded as a "Living Scent." More recently it is labeled "Surround™ room spray."
    Normally I don't seek out room sprays and apply them to my body. I find such sprays to be rather brash, assertive, and un-subtle.
    However, this product is different. Its intent is to be a multi-purpose scent, suitable for creating room ambience yet subtle and crafted enough to wear on one's body. This succeeds in that respect.
    It lists only pine + eucalyptus. I also get ginger and some woody notes.
    It is fresh, green and very pine-centric. A Christmas tree, camphoraceous. Very natural. Not sweet. A bit balsamic. Wears well, good longevity.
    Billed as a "limited edition" product and usually only available November - January.

    I may have to get a bottle of this. Odysseusm, do you wear this as a body spray? That's what I would want it for...

    HI SD, yes I do wear it sometimes as a body spray. It is good, don't over-apply as it is powerful. Does it have a Christmas tree profile? Somewhat, but it doesn't last. Coniferous scents rarely do. It settles into a pleasant woody-eucalyptus scent.

    A very seasonal scent by design. So, I'd better re-visit it while the season still holds.

    OK, I understand this scent much better now. The dominant note is of freshly-cut ginger root, with a freshly squeezed lemon on the side. This is a bright, attractive chord. It develops side notes of wood and conifers/mint. Very pleasant, certainly a great room scent and it is OK to wear.

    Definitely the season to revisit and discuss this scent -- equal parts room spray and body scent!

    This is a light, airy scent. It has an "open" quality -- maybe it has been designed with a quality to suggest and enhance a large space, such as a room. I get freshly-cut ginger root, woody notes, and hint of pine and eucalyptus. It is a fresh, pleasant scent to wear. Not gobsmacking, but good.

    Since I've been looking at Jo Malone scents, here is a true Conehead contender. New comments tomorrow.
