Esscentual Alchemy Christmas & Cookies EDP Natural Perfume Review

Ethel Merman Christmas

Esscentual Alchemy Christmas & Cookies was a request from the perfumer’s dear son. Little Esscentual Alchemy wanted a perfume that smelled like Christmas. I feel that most most children don’t think of their age in birthdays but in how many Christmases they remember. In a world filled with expensive botanicals, I’m sure Legos would be a cheaper gift, but not as interesting request 😉 Thank you little Esscentual Alchemy for requesting a perfume for all to enjoy. Mama and little Esscentual Alchemy created a perfume that truly captures the joy and excitement of a child on Christmas morning.

When you sniff this one your mind will nose will flash and a billboard to your brain that reads “Christmas”. The scent opens as a fiery cinnamon with balsam fir. It’s a spicy scent. But, you’ll detect some sweetness, a distant plate of spiced sugar cookies for Santa on the table. The tree is decorated in tinsel and handmade ornaments. Christmas lights reflect off a frosty window. Children giggle. The perfume, Christmas & Cookies, is festive. It is spice, evergreens and sugar cookies. This sounds clichĂ© or like a mass-produced holiday candle. But, it isn’t. Christmas & Cookies works as a perfume. It’s the best smelling Christmas themed fragrance that I have ever sniffed.

Esscentual Alchemy Christmas & Cookies

The fact that this Grinch loves this fragrance is saying something. Maybe this fragrance made my heart normal-sized because this will be the first year that my husband and I have celebrated Christmas in over 7 years. Actually it was my husband’s idea to celebrate this year but this fragrance does put me in the Christmas spirit.

Notes listed include 5 types of vanilla bean tincture, butter CO2, black tea, beeswax, white rose attar in sandalwood, cinnamon, antique nutmeg, balsam fir, and strawberries. PERFUMER – Amanda Feeley

Give Christmas & Cookies a try if you want a perfume that smells like Christmas or if you like spicy perfumes done in a Serge Lutens style. You don’t have to love naturals to love Christmas & Cookies. This scent is easily unisex.

Christmas & Cookies has above average projection and is long-wearing. This stuff is potent and it smells like high-quality, luxurious botanicals were used.

A sample is available for $10 at Esscentual Alchemy’s artfire store. Get it while you can! It’s a limited edition holiday perfume.

    Bowie aka Little Esscentual Alchemy says: “Thank you Victoria! I’m glad you liked my perfume!”

    Mama Esscentual Alchemy says: “Victoria I’m so glad that Bowie and I could help you find some Christmas spirit! There are times when it can be tricky to find, in our overly commercialized part of the world. Having little ones helps me remember too. It’s the little things that are important, like hope, joy, peace, and love. May your holiday be merry and bright.”
