Snowman Balls Fragrance Oil

Snowman Balls Fragrance OilSnowman Balls Fragrance Oil  – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Snowman Balls Fragrance Oil is a sexy winter time scent created by Natures Garden. This aroma is a blend of sensual, spicy, minty, bubbly, and fruity scents that together create a perfect fragrance oil for combating the wintertime blues. This fragrance oil is a is a delicious and interesting change to the more typical winter, pine tree aroma. We hope that you enjoy this scent and have a great winter!

What Does Snowman Balls Fragrance Oil Smell Like?

This fragrance oil by Natures Garden is a provocative, racey new approach to preventing the winter time blues.  A FUN fragrance, that is sure to bring smiles to the faces of many sad people!  Let’s face it, you could never have a snowman without first starting with snowballs.
While we were creating this fragrance, many thoughts came to mind, “Why are all snowmen created with obesity problems?”  While all snowmen are created with obvious weight issues, they seem to have very high self-esteems; wearing nothing more than a crocheted scarf and a felt hat. We thought, “If snowmen are going to bare all in public, perhaps these snowmen should be constructed in a more fashionable, sexy, muscular manner”.  Society stresses that women need to be “Skinny Minis” in order to be accepted, so to bring light to the unfair stereotypes placed on human females, we thought we’d symbolize these crazy societal norms with the male snowman race. Plus, don’t forget that Frosty was one magical dude!  If you’re going to be a male snowman, you need to start stepping up your game!  We want to start seeing sexy, magical snowmen in the yards of America!

Many thoughts went into creating our Snowman Balls fragrance, and we think you will be quite inspired by its overall complexity!  Snowman balls fragrance is a sexy, spicy blend of peppercorns, nutmeg, and fresh clove; embodied with notes of elderberries, blackberries, plums, and fresh green oakmoss; with magical, effervescent top notes of carbonated fizzy pop and just a hint of cool mint.   NG Original Scent!
