The quality of Ruddy Man is never in doubt. Butter, balm and oil are all outstanding quality. What makes Ruddy Clause so amazing is how the scent morphs as you wear it. The cookie definitely comes through first but not in an over powering way and not too vanilla heavy which was a concern of mine. As you wear it pine, peppermint, tobacco, and bourbon start to each come forward. Don't know if these are all in there or not but that's what I smelled. The longer you wear it the more these scents combine for amazing, unique aromas that truly remind you of all things good about Christmas and winter.
