Mr Sabatino wishes to reflect olfactorically in certain areas. Or - in the present case - even show a very specific plant species in all parts that can be used for fragrances. While in other enaturates from'Barnaby Black' the flavours that can be found directly on site are used, in'Dark Woods' colleagues of broader provenance obviously help to produce the desired aroma.

The "brand owner or perfume manufacturer" does not comment on the place where the "atlantic white cedar" (fictitious white cypress), as declared, stands in concrete terms. But a simple smell on the wet skin gives you an idea: It's a kitchen. The chef has a soft spot for sweet and spicy dishes, also on an alcoholic basis.

Because it opens up a dark, liqueur-like sweetness, more brown than green; stripes the medicinal. A little later I think of thickened fruit. Or maybe fig juice? An obscure curry sauce comes to my mind, there's something spicy about it. My favourite colleague decided quickly and without compromise on "Maggikraut". Hm... Finally the flash of inspiration: sweet Marsala sauce, neatly reduced in the pan (when preparing the Saltimbocca alla Marsala) - that's the closest thing so far! That certainly smells not bad, but unfortunately terribly un-perfumed.

But I was really happy about a second track: The designated successor of this colleague, who was gradually approaching retirement age, suddenly snowed in and asked very interested whether I had sprayed on something strange (!) again, it smells of strange wood. She's right - about both. There is actually quite dark wood during the day, obviously particularly prominent in the radiation.

But in the early afternoon I land again with a thought of Fig. For a while I try the tough, almost overripe sweetness of the dried variant, until after about eight hours, towards the end of the fragrance, we even reach fig jam, as it is occasionally served with cheese.

Conclusion: With the best will I cannot associate the scent with a region, let alone with a single conifer species. The fake cypresses known to me personally, so to speak, smell completely different. And also apart from that I don't get quite warm with the odd gourmand stuff of'Dark Woods' in context.

Thank you Yatagan for the rehearsal.
