The key to the forest is the language of the trees
Head into the woods of New England and you'll hear ethereal hissing from afar, the metholike earthy-woody sound of tall and slender cypress trees. Be fearless as you approach them, rub rosemary between your hands, it speaks the same tart-spicy language, what we know as forest colors. Listen more closely to the cypress voices and you will hear limey singing, the same song as the gray firs and the great Douglas firs.
Close your eyes. The cypress will tell you its heart, you will breathe its amber, aromatic balsam firs will gather with you, humming golden-brown resin drops. Inside drift the different needles, the barks and cones and flakes of earth and drops of tangerine. Soon the brown opoponax hums the sweeter colors of evening, you listen some more to the soft songs, digging into earthy mosses.
¶¶ "Key," or "Key {to the forest}" by its full name, is a quiet walk through the plethora of aromas of the coniferous forests of the North American Northeast, ethereal, resinous, earthy, woodsy, and-as Dorabella wrote below-highly balsamic. The walk through the forest takes about six hours. The conversation with the trees is moderate to quiet.
Gather Perfumes, based in Massachusetts, produces 100% natural fragrances. In doing so, Ananda Wilson incorporates botanical essences, extracts and oils that are either locally wildcrafted or organically grown. The long shelf life of the fragrances is all the more amazing, which is probably due to Ananda's long experience as well as the virtuoso processing of the fragrances. She produces her fragrances in each case in small editions, which are subject to natural seasonal fluctuations.
