Similar to Cinnamon Hollyberry
I guess I'm going to be the first one to review Cedar & Mistletoe. After reading the scent description and seeing base notes of cotton candy, I thought for certain this would be a rendition of other vendors' Hillbilly Mistletoe or Mistletoe Kisses, which are both sweet cotton-candy-based fragrances. But this SS fragrance is NOT at all like these sweet cotton candy fragrances. Instead Cedar & Mistletoe is extremely similar in some respects to what I'll refer to as its "kissing cousin," SS Cinnamon Hollyberry. This fragrance has that same cinnamon vibe but with some slight differences. Cedar & Mistletoe's cinnamon note is (very) slightly less pungent that of Cinnamon Hollyberry, but both are the hot imperial type of cinnamon. Cedar & Mistletoe also carries a flat cedar note, but because it is blended with other notes, you nose does not pick up the smell of cedar shavings like you might detect in other fragrances the feature cedar. The Cotton Candy note mentioned is difficult to pick up OOB, but it shows up as a very soft note in the final product--you really, really have to strain tot detect it. But it's there! This fragrance, like Cinnamon Hollyberry, blends very nicely with SS Elderberry, and I highly recommend blending the two together.
