Rum, Marshmallow, Nutmeg, Cardamom, Clove, Butter, Cinnamon, Vanilla, Brown Sugar & All Spice
NOT RECOMMENDED FOR USE BY WOMEN WHO ARE PREGNANT OR NURSING.
(*Slightly less spicy than last year's version but still a spice-forward perfume)
Buttered Rum Mallow smells of spiced rum swirled with marshmallow and brown sugar. This is a very spicy perfume. On cold sniff and initial application, the spiced rum, cardamom and nutmeg are the most prominent notes, followed quickly by the clove. The heavy winter spices and rum are tempered with the butter, brown sugar and marshmallow and this fragrance will become a bit sweeter the longer it is on the skin. It evokes the mood of being snuggled in a warm sweater, curled up with a hot mug of your favorite holiday drink in the presence of a roaring fire while everyone is asleep and inches of snow blanket the ground outside. Buttered Rum Mallow is a gourmand blend at the core but it is really dark, sophisticated and rich as well. This is a gourmand fragrance unlike the sweeter cake and mallow counterparts and may be one men will also enjoy.
Buttered Rum Mallow contains a blend of rum, marshmallow, butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and amber with essential oils of cardamom, nutmeg, clove and all spice.

CHOCOLATE PEPPERMINT BARK
Creamy milk chocolate bark studded with crushed cool peppermint candies, drizzled with a touch of dark and white chocolates. Blooms wonderfully in the shower. Whipped Soap onlyDARK GINGER SPICECAKE - *Reformulated 2016*
Gingerbread, Vetiver, Patchouli, Cedar, Amber, Benzoin
Gingerbread Cookies crash into a dark earthy corruption of patchouli and vetiver, accented by cedar wood. A smooth amber accord softens the edges and ties the gingerbread and dirty earth notes together. A few drops of candied vanillic benzoin, molasses and warm ginger emerge with the earthy notes and amber on the dry down. This perfume opens with a bold spicy gingerbread with a cinnamon bark overtone. There is a great deal of vetiver and smooth aged patchouli lurking just beneath but you'll also detect a light woodsy cedar. These notes serve to temper the sweetness and add dark and mysterious depth. The spicy elements of the gingerbread do lessen as this perfume wears and the base notes begin to take over about 45 minutes to an hour in. At this point, the molasses in the gingerbread will start to come forward rather than the spicier aspects and the longer this wears, the more dominant the vetiver and patchouli become. Overtime, the gingerbread transforms closer to a molasses-heavy iced ginger snap cookie without cinnamon. This is perfect for those who like foodie blends a bit darker.
5 ml perfume oil, 60 ml EDP, 2.5 ml EDP sample FLINTLOCK
Saddle Leather, Virginia Cedar, Tobacco, Black Pepper, Woods, Bayberry & Evergreens
NOT TO BE USED BY WOMEN WHO ARE PREGNANT OR NURSING.
A frozen expanse of untamed early America stretches as far as the eye can see. The boughs of cedar and conifers are heavy with snow. Your steed is laden with provisions, taking a slow measured pace through this unfamiliar region. Subtle wafts of your last fire emanate from your coat. Your saddle is warm and sturdy beneath you as your ride with trusty musket close at hand, prepared for the uncalculated dangers only the deep winter wilderness can oblige.
Flintlock is an intensely dark, woody, smokey and slightly coniferous blend. It is a combination of worn brown saddle leather, Virginia cedarwood, tobacco absolute, black pepper, sandalwood and a medley of other woods with a touch of evergreens, bayberry and smoke that will plunge you deep into a Pioneer's winter in the American frontier. Flintlock is darker on cold sniff and initial application than on the dry down. The evergreen and bayberry notes are very mild and primarily detectable at this stage in the opening. The blend wears like a warm brown leather jacket infused with cedar and smoke. It is woody, smoky and refined on the dry down.

LEMON GINGER CREAMS
Gingersnap Sandwich Cookies Filled With Vanilla-Lemon Cream
(I'm having trouble sourcing one of the oils for this fragrance and it may be the last year for this exact formula. Whipped Soap will not be restocked).
Vanilla cream filling infused with loads of bright lemon and sandwiched in between two perfectly spicy gingersnap cookies. On cold sniff and initial application the lemon cream filling is sweet and tart tempered by the vanilla blend. The gingersnap cookies are the perfect blend of ginger and cinnamon and pair wonderfully with the citrusy sweet-cream filling. This fragrance is uplifting and comforting. The lemon will soften after some time on the skin as the vanilla cream filling becomes more prominent in the dry down. Lemon Ginger Creams contains real ginger essential oil that smells incredible. After an hour or so of wear, Lemon Ginger Creams turns into a soft vanilla cream filling scent with only a faint trace of lemon and gingersnap. 5 ml perfume oil, Burnishing Glace, Whipped SoapNIGHT STAR
Patchouli, Nutmeg, Frankincense, Myrrh, Woods and Lemon
NOT TO BE USED BY WOMEN WHO ARE PREGNANT OR NURSING.
Ceremonial resins, patchouli, cold and spicy nutmeg, warm sandalwood and a touch of lemon, orange and clove meld together to create a dark, dry, resinous, earthy and spicy aroma.
Cold sniff and initial application features a marriage of frankincense and nutmeg essential oils hovering above grounding, earthy patchouli essential oil. The nutmeg is divine, authentic and spicy and adds a chilly and festive mood to the blend. As the nutmeg and frankincense subside, the dry myrrh essential oil comes forward with a very light lemon note. All of the notes combine to form a dry down which is primarily patchouli with resinous myrrh, a whisper of citrus and woods and a delicate bit of spices.5 ml perfume oilOUTPOST
Sugar Crystals, Spruce, Fir, Patchouli, Soft Woods, Bayberry, Mistletoe, Amber
A beacon of light amidst cold, desolate wilderness. Pass through a copse of young evergreens into a warm cedar cabin and thaw out under a soft Afghan blanket by a blazing fire while sugared treats from the kitchen fill the air. Notes include sugar crystals, spruce, fir, a medley of soft woods, sandalwood, oud, cedar, patchouli, guaiacwood, bayberry, mistletoe and a touch of amber.
This complex and unique blend will take you on a morphing adventure. On cold sniff and initial application, you'll be greeted with evergreen and bayberry top notes and loads of sugar-encrusted musky/earthy woods. The dry down is a warm, sweet and comforting blend with a tiny wisp of sweet hearth smoke. The green notes are very faint at this stage. A base of deep sugared-patchouli and musky cedar is prominent. It is festive and woodsy though not as literal as some of our other woodsy fragrances. It is very sweet, woody and musky all at once with coniferous undertones. Unisex.
Despite the evergreens and woods used, this is a very gentle blend of soft woods as opposed to a dark, heavy, woodsy blend. The sugar keeps it light-hearted and the other notes bring a festive winter impression to mind. Outpost is very fun to journey with when you're outside on a cold day. Cool weather really brings the notes of Outpost to life and enhances the blend. 5 ml perfume oil, 60 ml EDP, 2.5 ml EDP sample, Burnishing Glace, Whipped SoapSNOWMINT MALLOW
Peppermint, Vanilla Cake, Flaked Coconut, Sugar Cookies & Marshmallow Creme
Snowmint Mallow is subtle yet sweet and cakey blend featuring cool creamy peppermint, vanilla cake, white flaked coconut, fresh baked cookies and a dollop of marshmallow creme.On cold sniff and initial application, each of the notes are detectable with the peppermint floating on the top. The peppermint is a top note and therefore its presence is short lived. Snowmint Mallow quickly evolves into a gourmand delight of mouthwatering fluffy vanilla cake, sugar cookies, coconut and mallow. Past initial application, Snowmint Mallow snuggles in close to the skin. Whiffs of coconut, cookies and cake will be had occasionally but since this fragrance wears closer in your aura, it makes for a perfect subtle sweet scent for the workplace or for when you'd like to smell good but not too heavy. It also makes for a really cozy and comforting fragrance to wear just before bed. This heavenly fluffy foody fragrance is especially recommended to those who love cake and cookie scents.5 ml perfume oil, 60 ml EDP, 2.5 ml EDP sample, Burnishing GlaceSNOWSHOE PASS
White Amber, White Musk, Vanilla Accord, Peppermint Cream, Cold Winds
A chilly white blend of an ethereal snow blanket and cold winter winds, Snowshoe Pass combines pale white amber, delicate and smooth white musk, a sweet touch of vanilla and a faint whisper of creamy cold peppermint. The result is a unique take on a winter scent inspired by heavy snows and desolate rural regions. On cold sniff and initial application a creamy peppermint note is detectable as a top note, though it is a careful addition that takes a backseat to the other notes as it wears on the skin, ultimately receding entirely. There is just enough peppermint to enhance the coolness of this plushly white blend. The other notes swirl together to evoke not only a snow covered landscape that may only be traversed with snowshoes and a pioneer spirit, but the calm and intense silence after a snow deep in the wild. 5 ml perfume oil, 60 ml EDP, 2.5 ml EDP sample, Whipped Soap, Burnishing GlaceSUGARVALE
Candied Pecans, Butterscotch, Buttered Rum, Brown Sugar, Maple Syrup, Hot Pralines & Milk Chocolate Cocoa
Nestled in a mountain vale lies a small, quaint community with rustic buildings housing friendly, hardworking people. A special delight during the harsh and demanding winter season is the Sugarvale Candy Kitchen in the middle of town. Smoke billows profusely from the chimney of the confectioner's cabin. Aromas of candied pecans, butterscotch, buttered rum, brown sugar, maple syrup, hot pralines and milk chocolate cocoa fills the air across town, beckoning the inhabitants inside to warm cold bodies and empty tummy's alike.
On initial application and cold sniff, candied pecans emerge from the mouthwatering golden notes mentioned above. The pecans subside leaving the butterscotch, buttered rum, maple and brown sugar sweetening your skin with just a hint of hot pralines. The milk chocolate hot cocoa is not readily detectable but the chocolate note helps to round out the blend from being too sweet, though this mix is toothsome and very warm and delicious! 5 ml perfume oil, Burnishing Glace, Whipped SoapSPICED CRANBERRY & SPRUCE
Tart plump sugared cranberries with a whimsical wisp of spice in the background and festive green Spruce Essential Oil combine to bring a very wintery holiday blend to you this year. A unique fragrance to enhance your Winter Season. Smells like a coniferous cranberry juice!Whipped Soap only.
Rows of Christmas Trees, Clove Studded Oranges, Bayberry Tapers, Handcrafted Wreaths & Mistletoe
Winslow's Christmas Tree Farm sits at the base of Mount Willow in the town of Foxcroft. The annual winter crafts festival at Winslow's offers handmade bayberry candles, rustic wreaths, orange pomanders and much more. Meandering down the lane leading into Winslow's, you pass rows upon rows of fragrant Christmas trees ready for harvest.
Winslow's is the scent of winter. Fir, woods, bayberry and mistletoe meld with spicy clove and blood orange essential oil and the result smells effectively like bottled winter. Winslow's contains fir absolute and essential oil, spruce EO, cedar, a touch of guaiacwood and a blend of several fragrance oils in addition to the bayberry, mistletoe, clove and blood orange. If you enjoy evergreen and/or woods scents make sure to try Winslow's. The combination of bayberry and clove gives the impression of a Victorian Christmas. Unisex.

The last of our Master Bedroom perfume oil is currently on our site. This perfume is no longer available in sample format. We can no longer source one of the important notes in this fragrance and there are only about 5 bottles left. I expect these will sell well ahead of the Winter Collection release.

In early 2017 we will be taking away a few more of our lower sellers and retiring them for a bit in an effort to make room for new perfumes to join our catalog.We are pleased to announce a new retailer:
