Northern Cardinal


Branches lay bare against a grey sky. The gaiety of summer has given way to doldrums of fall, and as winter settles in, flocks take flight, like guests from a dwindling party. But one pair of revellers lingers on, he in crimson finery, she in demure tones. Among tattered streamers of copper leaves, they warble a merry duet. Around the cardinals' nest, tinsel icicles may have replaced vibrant blooms of roses, but as they feast on scarlet berries that dot the snowy landscape, this feathered brood's festive spirit refuses to be chilled.

Zoologist Northern Cardinal combines the invigorating scents of bergamot, rose and rich hints of leather. Tart green notes entwine with handsome undertones to encircle you in a subtle wreath of fragrance. Cloak yourself in this warm, cheerful perfume, a spark of joy on a bleak winter day.

Perfect green scent

"Tart green" is the perfect description for this scent! Sometimes I like to randomly crush leaves in my hand to smell them and this scent is like the perfect leaf. The bergamot and citrus notes add a subtle brightness while the rose and vanilla don't take over, but stop it from leaning too vegetal. I'll be putting a full bottle of Northern Cardinal at the top of my birthday wishlist!


Da frag is nice,but the TL vial still leaked a lil
