Fabienne has always been delightfully vague and artistic in her scent descriptions - even more so with her earlier blends.

The 2006 blurb was

"Every year in my neighborhood, we get together and put paper bags on our front lawns and light candles in them. It sounds dull but it is actually one of the prettiest most heartbreakingly tender parts of the year. It is called Luminaria, and it somehow manages to fall on the coldest night in December! This year we are going to the Observatory after the lighting for hot chocolate and carolling. And yes, it really is that good, heartfelt, and warm against the cold. You feel like the magic will go on forever, that it is the winter's first attempt to keep the ideal alive until spring, the leap into a land of: no cares, of giving, lights and warmth."

Thank you! Lol. Its still vague as heck and I guess I get to decide what if anything, I can discern out of the notes. Lol.

I'm having some trouble with the Possets forum search function so I wasn't able to pull up the review thread, but I know there is one. I remember mentions of buttermints and mint hot chocolate. To me both of those are accurate, though it's a delicate scent, not overwhelmingly pepperminty at all, and to me, more of a warm scent than a cold one.
