Seattle perfumer Karyn Gold-Rheineke brings a wealth of knowledge to her line of botanical fragrances, soaps and lotions. Before launching Pirouette Essentials in 2009 Karyn worked for many years in herbal apothecaries and as a massage therapist. Her knowledge of aromatherapy has been central to the creation of her fragrances.
All of the Pirouette Essentials are handcrafted products designed “to help balance the body, mind and spirit” and created with the finest pure, botanical essential oils and plant extracts. When I am not feeling 100% my first go-to fragrance is Pirouette Essentials Wild Spruce and Tobacco.

Wild Spruce and Tobacco by Karyn Gold-Rheineke
Pirouette Essentials gives these featured accords:
Top: Spruce, bergamot, fern
Heart: Spice, smoke, leather
Base: Vetiver, tobacco, roots
In 2014 The Men’s Journal listed Wild Spruce and Tobacco as one of the best scents for men to wear during the winter. On the Pirouette Essentials site Wild Spruce and Tobacco is listed under Men’s Favorites and is even offered as part of a gift set that includes a scent matched shaving soap.
As far as I’m concerned this versatile fragrance is a unisex scent for all seasons! In springtime the woody aromatics, green fern and vetiver resonate with new life and growing things. During the summer months Wild Spruce and Tobacco keeps me comfortable with the cooling effects of evergreen trees and the refreshing, astringent qualities of bergamot. The smoky mists of autumn are reflected in the fragrant heart of smoke and leather. The brisk, invigorating winter air and the cozy warmth of the holidays are echoed in the spruce, spice and tobacco. I am amazed how the ambient temperature and humidity change my perception of Wild Spruce and Tobacco from one season to the next.
From Pirouette Essentials: Aromatherapy Blend: Balancing & Spirited: Forest fresh wild spruce with bewitching, deep roots of smoky tobacco, leather and a wink of spice. A wonderfully rich, unisex scent for earth lovers alike
Pirouette Essentials also offers beautifully packaged lotions and fragrant soaps. My favorites are Karyn’s gift sets of four soap miniatures available in three collections – Botanicals, Earths and Blossoms
Pirouette has Wild Spruce & Tobacco from $7/2ml
When Portia gets home from her holidays we’ll do a draw.
