Snowshoe Pass - Solstice Scents

Pic of my recent Solstice Scents haul as I no longer have this vial.

Snowshoe Pass
Winter Collection 2012
Solstice Scents

White Amber, White Musk, Vanilla Accord, Peppermint Cream, Cold Winds

In the vial this smells minty and cold, and when first applied it's a sweet pine-ish (thankfully not nausea-inducing) kind of scent, with a minty amber hovering in the background. It leans towards masculine. I like head kicker perfumes, but the amber in this is quite strong and overpowering - it actually gave me a bit of a headache.

It took a good hour to calm down on me, and I almost scrubbed it off as it was bothering me quite a lot. Eventually it mellowed to a pleasant, undemanding vanilla amber, but it stayed too strong for too long.

2/5 Nice when it finally calms down, but it's too much for me.

Day 7!


  1. Sounds like an ok scent... though I´m not so sure about peppermint in perfume... I just think toothpaste when I smell mint...

    1. It's not really a toothpasty mint, though I know what you mean. I know a lot of people like this one - one of the main reasons I chose it to try was because I'd read so many raves about it.

  2. I love this scent in general, but agree on the headache part. I think I would love this as a soap much more!

    1. I agree - it would be nicely bracing in the shower in the morning, and as a soap it wouldn't be hanging around making me all headachy.
