Winter woods, indeed
A powerful boozy opening with a dark, oily, “sticky” texture; I get metallic nuances, a balsamic-resinous-woody and kind of cold note which reminds me of (a stereotyped idea of) Northern woods – like fir balsam, just “woodier” – then cloves, amber, “dark” smoked woods (birch), a thin leather accord, something like tobacco and as I said, a general and quite bold medicinal-metallic booziness all over. After a while it gets deeper and darker, more smoky and more dry, stale-indolic oak moss and castoreum echoes come in – not that dirty, but with a gloomy, moldy feel of heaviness. More then the raw, filthy skin of a sweaty beast, I think of a more general and subtle “mood”, the dark shady creepiness of a Northern wood (shortly the scent any True Norwegian Black Metaller would enjoy). All is treated “the contemporary US indie way” here: rich notes, heavy linear evolution (which means almost no evolution), general boozy darkness, thick powerful texture. Really fascinating and quite close to a couple of Slumberhouse scents, a bit too stout for my personal taste and perhaps just a bit “cliché-y” as regards of the abovementioned niche features... but surely a nice work worthy a try.

Rich, Delectable Golden Amber
Sonoma Scent Studio WINTER WOODS, my last sample from this house, ended up being a pleasant surprise. This is a very smooth and delectable amber oriental perfume, where I was expecting another burnt cedar variant, of which this house has many. Although there is a fair amount of wood here, the amber really dominates, with a rich and golden, viscous texture. I may even like this more than ANNE PLISKA, and that's saying a lot.

WINTER WOODS is less spicy than some amber compositions, and quite a bit more ambery than others (L'ENCRE NOIRE, AMBRE GRIS, et al.). A perfect perfume for cold weather, WINTER WOODS also wears quite well on a mild summer day. This may be my favorite from Sonoma—I somehow saved the best for last... On my wish list!

A Wintery Declaration of Love.
Disclaimer: Do not expect an objective - but be comfortable with - an emotional-personal impression:

Winter Woods is...

…a chalet somewhere in the mountains,
in a deeply snow-covered forest,
glancing at the crackling, creaking, smouldering fireside,
nestled down in a fake fur blanket,
with a bright red, sun-soaked-complex-spicy red wine (alternatively Chai tea) in my hands,
an I-just-feel-so-content-with-me-in-this-moment experience; I wouldn't wish being anywhere or anyone else.

Comforting darkness and a more and more increasing depth surround me perfectly.

Wood, smoke, resin, sanctity, earthiness, sparse sweetness and a bunch of pristine incense plus a subtle but enforcing animalistic note, whose erotic undertone is crescendo-ishly filling this chalet's small little room and cozying my senses for a prolonged time…

…that's why I'm so oh oh ohhhhhh in love.

Impressive sillage. Longevity: almost for forever.
