Yule/Christmas Scent List - 2023


Shivering Pines Collection a mix of warm nostalgia and a bit of old fashioned ghostly Christmas stories to send shivers down your spine while you are curled up under a warm blanket with your favorite hot beverage.  

Nestle up, deep in the woods for a good ole nostalgic Christmas/Yule! With the fresh and invigorating aromas of Conifer tree forests, brisk, frosty Winter air, warm and inviting aromas cooking in the kitchens making their seasonal offerings of baked goods, and the delightful comfort of resinous woods smoldering in the fireplaces to keep us warm at Shivering Pines! But don’t get to comfy, this little community deep in the woods is haunted!

This is a collection Moona has been working on for a while now, we are offering a few scents to start if off this holiday season with more coming in the near future!

Shivering Pines: (sampled out last Mooscents Halloween collection) Experience a haunted Christmas cabin deep in the woods with a blend of pure essential oils of conifer trees like Pine, crisp frosty ghostly citrus zest and mint, warming Christmas memories of cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove, with a hint of mystical resins and fireplace embers. 

Whispering Winds:  Picture a Christmas where the snow falls not in delicate snowflakes but in eerie spirals. The wind carries whispers sending shivers down your spine, the flickering moonlight cast ominous shadows as you hurry for the safety and comfort of your cabin. Natural oils of Cypress, Spruce, Juniper, Lavender, Spearmint.

Haunted Hearth: Step into a ghost story with the flickering glow of the warm hearth. The crackling flames play tricks on your eyes were you think you see spectral shapes dancing. The air is filled with the enchanting aroma while you get lost in gazing at the ghostly figures partaking in festive activities, or is it your imagination?  Smoky Vetiver, Patchouli, Sandalwood, a sweet and smoky Vanilla bean.

Bohemian Velvet: Sandalwood, Patchouli, and Nag Champa incense type of notes. Inspired from MoonaLisa's Haight Ashbury days as a Goth girl.

Evil Garden: The peaches, apples, plums, and pears that are guarded by ferocious bears. Too bad the nurse has disappeared, but in her place has revered, gorgeous flowers that have a smell, which causes one to feel unwell. (But you won't ;)

Forager's Grove: She forages through her favorite and familiar hidden grounds. Nestled safely in her woods, she gathers in her basket the darkest of woody ambers, dry balsamic resins she picks from the bark of her favorite beloved trees. She inhales deeply sweet, sugared blackberry-stained fingertips. Far off in the distance, her warm hearth beckons her back, with the faintest hint of toasted caramel notes of fresh roasted coffee brewing over the fire. Complex woody, smoky essence of smoldering magic lays a foundation for this hypnotic scent! Blended with deep, rich notes of dank woods, sweet balsamic aromas of resinous leaves and twigs, intoxicating toasted sugared wild blackberries and hints of comforting roasted coffee.

Haunted Library: At long last, the awaited Haunted Library scent I have been working on for ages!  Flickering candlelight reveals faint hints of wax burning in the dark corners among the ancient bookshelves, aged, dusty oak and dampened earthen cellars, with worn bindings. A touch of musty vanilla left from lingering spirits, while wafts of ghostly faint florals, mingle with incense traces left behind on onion skin thin pages of forgotten rituals.

Hocus Pocus: Take a walk in the wooded forest near the three sisters’ house. Breathe in the fresh sweet aroma as you brush by the balsam pines, and wild growing blackberries, mulberries, and cloudberries.

Puffs of their magic incense and potions fill the air with tuffs of sweet amber, French vanilla, cinnamon, and caramelized sugar.

Nightcrawlers Wake: Reach up through dark and dank rich humus soil, wet earth, fresh green grass & the unmistakable hint of freshly decaying carnation wreaths. 

No Witches on a Crackling Fire: A berry rich type of smoldering wood. If you try to smell the distinctive notes separately you can smell the berries and woods. It blends all together and comes in, to me, as a very realistic outdoor camping fire with that kind of sweet wet smolder in the damp morning woods.

Patchouli & Petitgrain: Earthy and grounding eo blend. Petitgrain eo is the wood of an orange tree.

Pocket Full of Posies reformulated: Oakmoss, labdanum resin, burning patchouli herbs and orange blossom scented pomanders to drive away any unwanted guests.
