Like snow falling in a quiet forest...

Happy December, almost! It’s Alena today here to ring in the holiday season with our December seasonal scent, Silent Night.

Now those of you eagle-nosed (that’s not a thing) Simon & Duffy fans may recognize that Silent Night used to be called Ma Vhenan. Back in the day, this scent was a tribute to my favorite character from the Dragon Age video game series, Solas. These days, Meredith tells me that the birth of Jesus has more mass appeal than a secondary video game character, which I guess might be true.

But even with the rename, Silent Night remains my favorite scent that we make here at Cowboy & Cricket. For me, it invokes all the mystery and wonder of a frosty evening in the woods with its natural and foresty notes: flowers, smoky patchouli, and creamy vanilla come together with top notes of bergamot, fern leaves, and pine needles. There's a heady blooming of jasmine, roses, and lilies and finished with a blending of rich vanilla, patchouli, and teakwood.

It’s a beautiful, clean and unique scent - and a great alternative if you want a foresty smell in your home for the holidays, but you want something a little more complex than the usual HEY I’M A PINE TREE candles that are popular this time of year.

We're announcing Silent Night a little bit early so you can get it as part of our Black Friday sale! From now through Monday, November 27, take 25% off your purchase of $20 or more on our Etsy store.
