Nothing recalls wintry woods drifted high with snow like the astringent, green scent of balsam. Of the "wood" scents popular in colder months, it's one of the brightest, and it's never fusty or heavy smelling. There's plenty of fresh balsam goodness for your bathroom, too. If you want to smell like a forest while you moisturize, there's Allgauer Foot Balsam ($10), Nivea SOS Hand Balsam ($13), and Dr. Eckstein Krauter Balsam Facial Balm ($23). If you'd rather fill your shower with the smell of the outdoors, Balsamo Soap by Valobra ($15) and Philip B. Nordic Wood One Step Hair & Body Shampoo ($8) will both do the job. And if you'd like a beautifully blended holiday scent that's pretty but not girly, there's Agraria Balsam Cologne Spray ($40).
