Nothing enlivens the holiday spirit quite like holly berries. With the prickly green leaves and vibrant red berries, decorating with the holly plant is one of the oldest wintertime traditions. The citrusy sweetness of Orange Blood, the crispness of Douglas Fir and Eucalyptus Dives, and the warm muskiness of Patchouli creates the aroma of Christmas stockings filled with oranges next to the tree adorned with berries.
