An Asian silhouette.
God knows that a walk in the woods is good for body and soul, lets you breathe deeply, conveys serenity and enables you to get away from everyday life. But in our time everything must get as interesting and unusual a name as possible, so that the person overwhelmed with information deals with a topic, no matter how normal and long proven it is.

Recently I had to prune and then smile when I read that the rest you can get by walking in the green lungs of our cities is now called "forest bathing" and that today's authors find it necessary to write books about it and identify the trend as Japanese, because we matter-of-fact Europeans are apparently no longer able to get involved without guidance in the relaxing and strengthening atmosphere of the forest.

I don't want to claim that Alba di Seoul is, so to speak, the forest bath for your handbag, but the gentle scent of conifers tempts me to take a deep breath. In contrast to some other forest scents I don't have the feeling to spray resin stains on my clothes or to get into danger that around the next corner a forest gnome or the last unicorn comes. Alba di Seoul is much more subtle and gentle and does not remind me of Japanese gardens or pagodas, but rather of the light pine forests that let the sunlight shine down to the ground and in which the marsh gladiolas bloom near here at the moment. The woody notes don't convey the feeling of immediately absorbing a splinter, and the oriental scents actually represent the Far East rather than the Near East for me. The scent is soft, calm and cool, but without the chills that some green-fresh scents can give me. The clear theme of the fragrance is well illustrated on the packaging, because it shows the silhouette of a silhouette of a forest with silhouettes of silhouettes, where the light shimmers through the trunks of the trees
As with Citta di Kyoto, the Italian perfumers at Alba di Seoul have succeeded in combining Asian meditative flair and Mediterranean art of living in one fragrance.
