Ho Ho Ho POSSEEEEEE! It’s so close I can taste the credit card debt. 5 weeks. I am already here in Sydney getting into the Christmas Spirit, not spirits: though it was a very near thing. Just for fun I dug out my La Folie de Noël to help get me in the mood for doing my Christmas Cards! Last year we were in the USA around this time and with selling and moving house and all that goes with that there was no great card send in 2014. I felt so freaking naughty.
For those that don’t celebrate Christmas I am sorry this must be entirely boring for you. Still, you don’t need to be Christian to enjoy La Folie de Noël or the fun and pageantry of Christmas.

Fragrantica gives these featured accords in one line:
Star anise, whipped cream, incense
Star anise in the spotlight, lovely licorice spiced up! I get little reminders of nutmeg, vanilla and a hint of Chinese five spice, the whipped cream is sweetened to the point that it’s a caramel ice cream with a dream of Scotch whiskey tagging along to round it out. For the whole life of La Folie de Noël a cool wash of unburned incense floats gently underneath.

So if you are looking to smell a LOT like Christmas in the lead up or on the day then Dawn has this little ripper that I completely adore. If La Folie de Noël doesn’t get you in the Jingle Bells mood then NOTHING will.
Though La Folie de Noël starts out big and lavish it softens out within an hour and after two hours I have a warm vanilla cream and pudding glow that lives softly at a very close level for ages. My thought is that it’s totally wearable and could even be worn in your office, unless it is totally frag phobic.

Are there any frags you wear that are seasonal? Do you spritz beyond those seasons? Ever?
