As much as I hate to admit this, it's still winter. Even with the large amounts of snow still falling, I remain in denial. Although winter is my least favorite season I can not stop loving the scents that surround me at this time of year. Who can resist fresh forest scents of the local Fir trees and the warming scents of home baked winter delights! I found a few brands that make sure we get our dose of winter scents all year round! 

thymes frasier fir candle set certified fabulous review

THYMES: Frasier Fir Aromatic Candle Set would make people first think of Christmas when they smell it, but if your a fan of the woods, camping or live in places that praise their trees (Maine = The Pine Tree State) then you can appreciate these candles all year! I personally adore the scent of fresh trees and mixed with the masculine combination of Sandalwood and Cedarwood the magic of the forest is brought inside your home in an instant. Now this is my kind of "camping" :) I've been on a scented candle obsession lately, so both candles in the set were used constantly in my home and although I try to rotate scents so not to have one candle burn up faster, I couldn't help but be in the mood for my Siberian Fir every night! I need to stock up more next time :)

thymes frasier fir hand lotion certified fabulous review

THYMES: Frasier Fir Hand Lotion was a pleasant surprise to find out about and was a good way to take my tree scent obsession outside of the house! Enriched with soothing shea butter, moisturizing glycerin and revitalizing vitamin E, leaving skin soothed, protected and warmed with crisp, just-cut forest fragrance. To tell the truth, I actually used this not just on my hands but all over my body! I couldn't get enough of the Frasier Fir scent! It's not powerful in a way where people would think I work in a lumber yard but just perfectly scented enough to smell familiar to people like a nice holiday memory...how dreamy is that?! Definately a nice uni-sex type of scent, as I personally like more masculine type of fragrances anyway. I love putting in on before bed and thinking of dark, romantic forest settings to help me relax and sleep easier. I highly recommend!

My favorite products to try out and review are definitely colognes and body sprays.  With a lot of the products I test, there are so many different variables to evaluate: texture, scent, ease of application, effectiveness.  To many things to gage makes it less entertaining to review since I have to write a novel to cover it all (and I am sure that after 6 or 7 paragraphs you the reader get a little bored as well).  With scents, it’s a whole different story.  I get to spend time really focusing on the subtle elements that are put together to make a fragrance.  Each complete aroma has a little story to tell… or for the wearer to use to tell their own story ;-)

With this in mind, I have decided to give my guess of each fragrance in the Ralph Lauren: The Big Pony Collection for Men and then compare it to what the company has for a description.  Lets see how I did.

Ralph Lauren Big Pony 1 8.15.13

Eau de Toilette Natural Spray #1 - Sporty 

This first fragrance was a quick one for me to weigh in on.  It has a mild musk, as most colognes do, but then there were strong notes of citrus and melon.  I say citrus and melon because, to me I could smell the sharp skin of orange and then a mellow fruity smell after it.  Noticeable, but not overpowering to the people around you.  Over all a nice balance of “flavors”
