The following is the scent description from False Nostalgia:
Winter is coming: The scent of the North.
A cold woodland breeze, icy snow, Weirwoods, and moss with smoke and ash.
Above- Winter is Coming by False Nostalgia
Upon cold sniff, I detect an earthy, sexy moss (oakmoss?) note, along with a bit of smoke to liven things up.
Initial application is to die for. Is it possible to smell a cold woodland breeze in a perfume? I don't know, but this is what I suspect it would smell like. I am honestly taken to the harsh, icy lands of Winterfell with direwolves howling in the distance. Even at this stage, I am certain this would be classified as a masculine scent; but it would be an absolute crime for us ladies to miss out on such sexiness!
The drydown features the smoke note, perhaps from a fleeting fire to keep unlucky wanderers warm. Every stage of this scent truly captures what I imagine Winterfell would smell like: Cold, harsh, and foreboding (to say the least).
The smoky scent fades to ash, like it truly would during winter in such a harsh environment. I also get a snowy note, or what I assume to be the snow. Of course, the snow is likely what put out the life-saving fire!
I cannot praise this perfume enough. I know I have a lot of positive reviews, but this is already without a doubt up there in my gallery of favorite scents. The shop owner is truly a talented person, and I would absolutely purchase from False Nostalgia in the future!
Now, I am eager to read the next chapter of the book! Thanks for reading, and I hope you had a wonderful Tuesday!
