Let's freeze in style and explore the colder side of perfumery. From plush snow, and crisp arctic air to glaciers and tingling frost this pack offers an abundance of ice-cold treasures.  

Fresh snow is odorless so it is down to the talents and creativity of perfumers to magic the sensory experience of snowy moments. They go beyond the scent to our imaginations conjuring romantic memories of winter winds or snowflakes on eyelashes. It is the artful manipulation and combinations of notes that evoke a sensation of a snowy atmosphere.  

While snow is odorless our brains will often expect a clean crisp scent - as if we can smell the act of hearing the crunch of our footsteps on virgin white snow. Notes such as juniper, mint and aldehydes can serve up such frosty freshness. Moreover images of snow capped mountains and winter wonderlands are ubiquitous with alpine trees and fragrant vegetation and so our sense of what ‘snowy’ might smell like increases. Here we might find pine, oakmoss or even iris for a powdered snow effect. Equally the name of a scent, like Penguin or Snowy Owl, throws the fantastical aromachemicals into cool relief.  

As we patiently wait for sunnier climes, we hope this selection will delight your curious noses as you come to know snow and all the myriad ways it is crafted into fragrance.
