A forest of pines and pistachios
Vito woke up because something fell out of the picture on his wall in the middle of the night. Pine cones tumbled onto his parquet floor. He didn't feel like wondering yet and wanted to roll over again, but the sun was just coming up in the painting and with the light on, Vito just couldn't sleep. Today there was forest on the mural and as the warm rays shone on the needles Vito saw them begin to dance, to pop and burst with ethereal resins and how northern lights shone brightly into the room with the pearls of mastic pistachios. Their shrubs hung like hands over the edge of the picture, had scattered the bright resins like the finest grains into the bower, which was filled with intense nutty spice and the green glow of boreal woods.
Soon, balsamic clouds of incense drifted through the resinous bark of the trees, fine reddish-brown threads flooded the room, mingled with the mastic, and then slowly sank to the floor. Now Vito looked down from his bed at the warm-spiced clouds as they revealed more and more of the mossy forest floor after the rain, the charcoals of the extinguished fires on the earth in his room. Then darkness fell again and Vito crawled into his pillows. They still smelled of coniferous forest, of pine and pistachio.

Dawn Spencer Hurwitz, of North Boulder, Colorado, moves her fragrances in the fluid borderlands between perfumes, bespoke, aromatherapy, and collaborations with artists. "Sweet Pine Tar" wanders from essential needles to long present mastic resins, through balsamic clouds of incense down into charcoal on damp forest floor mixed with labdanum. It is moderately to skin-tinglingly present for about five to seven hours.

A walk in the Massachusetts Woods
Dawn Spencer Hurwitz has, as always, created a masterpiece. Part of her "Isolation Meditation Experience" perfumes, it was made as a balm for sore and tired souls during this crazy year.

It's heaven in a bottle. The unmistakable fragrance of an evergreen forest, it evokes memories of my youth in what was then a semi-rural part of Massachusetts.

It's the smell of pine sap oozing from a fallen branch, sticky and resinous. It's the smell of fallen pine needles blanketing the forest floor (and incidentally your front and back yards). It's the smell of the wonder of a pinecone - so intricate yet sturdy, woody with a benzoin-esque resinous feel.

It's the smell of cedar, sharp, aromatic, almost alive - the scent of heaven. There's fir in this as well, gloriously woodsy and aromatic, tingling the nostrils.

All this beautiful resinous wood is veiled in a hazy, fuzzy blanket of smoky notes. It's the smell of the pine logs burning, the pine needles exciting the fire, flames rushing as the sap ignites, it's a sweet smoke, with hints of frankincense and incense. It's reminiscent of the scent wafting up from the forest floor: green moss carpeting shady swaths, sticky pine cones and needles laying dormant until fauna disturbs then, the smell of the damp and rich earth. Rich earth, created by the decay of that which was once vibrantly alive and teaming with hope. The decay of life past, rich with hope and energy to bring forth life again. And so it shall, life begins anew from the essence of the splendor and goodness of that which has been.

Crafty, bold, evocative, sharp/sweet pine resin
DSH Perfumes Sweet Pine Tar fragrance I was instantly drawn to when I saw it posted about, as it sounds right up my alley, a mix of pine tar, cedar, and charcoal, with the sweet resinous hints of amber from the pine tar. It’s actually a little less sweet than I expected, the sharp bite of the resin being perhaps the most noteworthy feature of the blend. It’s characteristically piney and woody, as well, and feels very evocative of the outdoors (albeit not quite as much as Colorado). Overall, it’s a very solid blend that starts out acerbic but dries down to a comfortable, authentic, robust mix.

As is generally the case, I’m very happy with the performance, even if it is not quite as long-lasting as Become the Shaman, which I tried yesterday. Pricing is $235 for 60ml VDP, $125 for 30ml EDP, on the higher side for the house, no doubt due to the some of the raw ingredients that given Sweet Pine Tar its character. To clarify, I sampled the EDP.

One of the best true-to-life forest fragrances I've ever smelled.
