Certainly not hostile
When I hear the word "bars", I spontaneously think of the "Lord of the Rings", in whose original English version the term sometimes appears. There is always talk of rather unpleasant corners of Middle Earth, often devastated and/or dominated by dark powers.

Mr. Mathew Sabatino's'Pine Barrens', on the other hand, are a rustic but certainly not hostile environment - and I don't mean the concretely named landscape on Long Island (which I don't know anyway) but simply what the scent conveys. Anyway, no one has probably ever been beaten to death with a Soignon goat roll. Because with one of these,'Pine Barrens' opens. In some coniferous flavours there is a sour twist, which has something of goat cheese - so here too. And that is by no means to be understood negatively.

But soon other aromas dominate, the odd thought of the opening fades away. A sweetness, to which the announcement "flowers" really fits. There is honey from the coniferous tree including its own metal note as well as airy resin with a slight, bitter tinge. Later I am happy about a kind of nut, as I already know it from'Taiga Whispers' by Nimère and I haven't found out its secret yet.

Finally - sometimes the business economist peeps out from the accounts department - I may make another catch behind the "charred oak", although I find that this sounds much too martial, because it is merely an addition, a touch, as if it has burned somewhere in the distance. From noon it slowly becomes a little creamier and sweeter, however, always a needlewood-like aeration remains noticeable, while the scent gradually fades away.

I find the low silage remarkable, which, to anticipate this, applies to all Barnaby Blacks and is certainly astonishing for perfumes from the resin, wood and smoke direction. In style,'Pine Barrens' reminds me of one or the other euphorium Brooklyn, but the latter are much thicker, louder and almost uncouth in comparison. It is immediately obvious that Mr. Sabatino wants to capture atmospheric moods and not depict events. In this respect, the manufacturer rightly points out that the fragrances can be applied generously. Nothing should contradict that.

Is that perfume or room fragrance? The answer "perfume" comes to me - at least when limited to these alternatives - astonishingly easily. This must be due to the non-spatial approach. Of course, these are not classic perfumes.

Thank you Yatagan for the rehearsal.
