Amber & Moss Room Spray: Amber & Moss was the scent that made me fall in love with PF long before I worked for them. Honestly, every product in Amber & Moss is fantastic. It's the scent I have gifted to every person in my life. I switch up my scents a lot but I always go back to Amber & Moss. The scent is fresh but woodsy and I love spraying the room & linen spray on my couch, bed and curtains after I clean. I even use it as perfume as I tend to like a lighter scent on myself.
