A day with forester Thorvald Skogson
The working day begins - in the wintery forest. A few juniper trees are felled - that was clearly the order of the day. The bitter-tart, somewhat bulky smell of the freshly cut wood hangs in the air and challenges us. After felling, during delimbing, splitting and stacking, resin emerges from the wood and mixes with the gentle smell of the needles lying around. The odeur as a whole becomes more woody and spicy. It's lunchtime, a wooden pipe is carved to pass the time. The scent seems to gradually disappear. To see if the pipe lies well in mouth, it is stuffed with a spicy tobacco. The now tobacco-flavoured juniper forest scent has become warmer, albeit subtle and quite close in character. But every time we think we can't smell anything anymore, a slight gush follows. The pipe will not be lit. Later at home, in the evening, the scent mixture can still be guessed. I feel like a snack now, then a Schleenschnaps by the fireplace. All in all a very appealing scent composition, not commonplace, reserved, not necessarily light fare. The tart woody contrast with the warm tobacco resinous base note is impressive. The fragrance appears authentic and natural - simply well done. I have nothing in my collection of woody scents that resembles this one. A nice working day with En from Svensk Parfym comes to an end, which I would like to repeat.
