The addition of Grapefruit and Lemon top notes further enliven the aroma, and the lightest touch of Jasmine and Rose brings balance. Subtle notes of Cardamom and Nutmeg underscore the fragrance with an elusive spiciness, whilst the base notes of Cedarwood and Moss give this modern chypre a foundation in the forest.


Step into a rich medley of winter spices and fruits and journey through notes of clove, ginger and cinnamon with a backdrop of Jasmine with Nostara’s Winter Wonderland fragrance.
