The boozy opening had a bit of a whiff of dark rum, but only in a very nonspecific way. Soon the tobacco note comes to the fore, which is sweetened by a bland tonka-syrupy flavour -
imagine the factory production at Mac Baren’s gone terribly wrong.
The spicy gingerbread - Christmas season! - is similarly unexciting, but conceptually it fits in with the rest of this mixture.
I get moderate sillage, good projection and six hours of longevity on my skin.
This winter scent is based on a nice idea, but the ingredients are too synthetic and generic to convince. 2.75/5.

stereotyped cliches. This is surprising, as Puig has s history of making better fragrances.
