Pine?!??

Pine?!??

I really had a tough time with recognizing this and the different aromas. Which is good because it means I didn’t know it and now I do! Honestly, when I smelled it, it smelled like menthol (cineolic), kind of herbal (herbaceous), sweet, maybe even a little floral, citrusy... I honestly thought it was some kind of sweet herb and was shocked it was Pine (Pinus sylvestris). Once I knew what it was, I got my bearings a bit, and now think that what I thought was herbaceous is terpenic/coniferous and woody, sweet is balsamic. I stand behind cineolic and citrus. This was tough for me...
