„The Fir Tree”


This perfume reminds me of the “The Fir Tree” story by H.C. Andersen; the story about the beautiful little fir tree who does not know its own beauty or the beauty...

Not very. More people dislike this perfume than care to admit on Fragrantica. I came upon a couple of samples very easily, as people were quite...

This is how the taiga smells in summer... ;-)
Childhood memories are basically always something special. Especially when we associate them with feelings of happiness. Blackcurrant evokes exactly these feelings for me.
When we were kids, we spent summer vacations at the Black Sea and in Western Siberia with grandmas and grandpas. Especially the weeks with grandparents were incredibly great - we spent the whole day outdoors, went swimming or even picked mushrooms and berries in the taiga. And even though it was mostly wild blueberries or raspberries and not blackcurrants, it smelled exactly like Enchanted Forest.
The combination of sweet berries and "green" notes on a base of wood (lots of wood!) is unbeatable for me. The currant doesn't smell like jam or liqueur (even though I like those notes too), but like realistic berries. The perfume is therefore for me in terms of sound and associations with no other comparable.
Small minus point could be that the fragrance (on my skin at least) hardly changes. For me, it is completely fine, because I just love him, it can, however, for others with time a little monotonous.

Love at third sight
No real forest with real smelling currants (as for example in L'Ombre dans L'Eau) but instead a beautiful fairy tale forest that also reminds me of East European fairy tales (like another one) More suitable (in my opinion) for the colder days than for 20+ degrees. I find that in the heat smells a bit too girlie (red fruit gum ) and you can underestimate him....at least that's what happened with me.
Now that it's snowing outside (crazy April) I love it because the currant, although still sweet (jammy) leaves free space for the green notes (currant leaf and rosemary) and the wine and rum and pepper/fir tree smell.
The bottle fits very well to the fragrance.
i love this fragrance because it reminds me of my childhood, it makes me happy (like a child) and because I can let my imagination run wild when I wear it i find the scent also quite easy to understand even by newcomers to the niche world.

A Fragrance that can sing the slavic fairytale of an Enchantress in the forest and the magic of Love
There is a wonderful Slavic story about a Samodiva (Enchantress in the forest) who returned her shirt (understood as wings) and flew away from the man who held her captive. Freedom is an irreplaceable thing, but you realize how important it is in the moment you lose it. No matter how great one love may be in the beginning, owning instead of loving predetermines the end of this story.
This perfume for me is the embodiment of the Love that gives without pretensions. In each application you feel the freedom of the mountain air, the fleeting fruit trail of blackcurrant like a light romantic kiss and the passion hidden in the rum.
With this perfume you can live your dreams.

Black currant haven
The name IMO should have been Enchanted Garden as this fruity, green, floral, spicy-woody and slightly resinous mix really reminds me of my grandma's beautiful garden in the bloom. The front runner is the black currant plant (you could say this scent does the same to black currant plant as Philosykos to fig tree). Second, the blend is impeccable and the black currant plant theme starts dying deep in the dry down. Longevity and projection are average, not a beast nor a slouch. It reminds me a bit of Bleecker Street by Bond N9 (another berry-fruity green scent) and a bit of Green Valley by Creed (as it is going for similar imagery though the notes are different). The bottle is gorgeous!!! This scent is a true art but still rather wearable, which is a plus. Overall, I was mesmerized by the scent the first time I smelled it and I knew I had to get a bottle. Once again, this is a purchase when you have 10-15 niche fragrances in your collection since this is for a seasoned nose. Versatility is the only weakness here: this is to me a casual scent for spring-summer. If you like fruity-green scents, this is a safe blind buy. Otherwise, test it. Chances are you will be buying a bottle since this scent is like no other!

A journey to a mysterious and magical forest
True to its name Enchanted Forest transport you to a lush, green, mysterious and inviting forest.

It opens very sweet with a bubblegummy feel to it, but this sweet note settles down to a more fresh, green, sweet and vibrant scent with all the notes (and there is a lot going on) blending together. The dominant note will be the from the black currant though.

Where other forest scents (Tom Ford's Vert series or Fougere d'argent) give a more truer feel of being out in nature or deep in a forest, the sweeter notes in Enchanted Forest really brings about that enchanted and mystical feel to it and makes the scent a great experience. Where other scents dries down to be more woody, Enchanted Forest remains lush and green and more on the gourmandish side.

Enchanted Forest lasts a decent amount on my skin around 6-8 hours and projects well too without being overpowering.

Probably not the best scent for a work environment due to the sweetness of it, but it's perfect for either being outside or when you just want to day dream a bit. Best in early Fall, Spring time or cooler Summer days.

If you like green, fresh scents or gourmands, then Enchanted Forest is definitely worth checking out. If you are a perfume fan then I'd also recommend just giving this a sniff for the sake of experiencing it.

Enchanted Forest
When I got a decant of this back in December 2018 i immediately tried it as I've heard a lot about it but as soon as i sprayed it reminded me of bubble gum and pine which i didn't like at all. Fast forward to present day i decided to wear this again. Now when i sprayed it on i could immediately detect the black currant note, looking at the notes pyramid there are a lot of notes but i only detect Black Currant, Fir, Oak-moss and hint of Vanilla.I have to say this is the best black currant fragrance available but this is not a bottle worthy fragrance for me.

Nice but too sweet
This is a lovely fragrance, but far too sweet for me. I can completely understand how this might remind someone of a dark Russian forest, when black currants bushes are plentiful and loaded with ripe berries dripping with syrupy sweet juice. There is a lovely woody and resinous drydown. I think it's a beautiful fragrance, and while it's too sweet for me, if my taste ever changes and I desire a super sweet berry-filled forest such as this, I would certainly purchase. The bottle is adorable.

The gates to the mysterious forest open for me too
And once again I couldn't help but buy a fragrance blindly from Mr Duchaufour. But since this one seems to be a Love-it or Hate-it scent, the risk of kissing the ground with the nose was quite high. Thanks to a very dear Parfuma here, I could not resist the offer and have struck. At this point again many thanks. :-)
But since I also like Vert d'Encens so much, my fear of blind buying was a little dammed again.

So the package was quickly scissored and I was greeted by a beautiful square blue cardboard with an opulent golden flower print reminiscent of the painting of the last century. When opened, you are gleamed by the golden mirrored lid, which rests on a black roundish bottle, where again the attention to detail has not been spared. A laughing moon and a sweeping swan already show that the brand also attaches great importance to the presentation. The velvety soft fabric in which the bottle is embedded is the icing on the cake But as we know, it's still about the content, so hand out, gold spray head actuated and up with it.

In the first moments I was a little flabbergasted. No forest far and wide in sight, however a very strong fruity sweet cassis note spreads in my nose. If the fragrance continues to develop like this, it might be better in the future if I do without blind purchases completely. At first I thought I had a woman's scent under my nose again. But if you give the fragrance a little time, the doors open to the exhilarating forest everyone here talks about. Partially dark, gloomy, resinous, then again some sunrays shine through the treetops, one currant bush follows the next and one never has the impression to stroll through an ordinary forest, even if the fir trees here definitely attract attention and together with the cassis note conjure a very unique scent into our trunk. Towards the end it becomes a little creamier, but without missing its main theme. To make things a little easier, I would say that the Vert d'Encens has been dumped in a fruit sorbet of currants.
The shelf life of just over 6 hours is in the good mid-range. The projection is very strong in the first 1-2 hours before he withdraws bit by bit. Just right and discreetly dosed, it can also be worn in the office. In my eyes he is wearable in casual outfit, as well as in a suit.

So I would say: mission successful and I can still trust my nose for blind purchases. ;-)

Barely sniffed, already enchanted
Sometimes I have strange desires. Recently, I felt like a green, woody, tannic fragrance - completely off my beaten track - and I came across Enchanted Forest. Thanks to a dear Parfuma my wish was fulfilled immediately and I had the opportunity to test it in all peace. Thank you, you love!

I spent many summers in Sweden's woods. I wandered. Enjoying nature and silence. The forest. The lakes. The rippling streams. I collected mushrooms, blueberries and raspberries almost meditatively, forgetting to listen to the noise of the trees, sucking in the scent of the fir trees. And I thought if I sprayed that scent on, it would catapult me right back there. However, this is not the case. But it's also a magic forest. And there it smells obviously nevertheless differently...

The start is spicy and herbaceous, but still soft and not scratchy. Little by little the currants are added, which are neither sweet nor sour, but are very pleasant. The herbaceous "Waldige" offers a very good contrast to the fruity sweetness. But there's something else in the background, and that's probably what makes it so magical, because describing this fragrance as fruity and green is not yet enough to do it justice. It's like walking deeper and deeper into the forest and discovering that a lot of things are hidden behind the trees.

I smell smoke from far away, a tiny breath only and not always. And animals or other magical creatures are of course also in the forest, but the animal, if you want to call it a note here at all, is extremely discreet. These additional components, of which more can certainly be discovered, are not constant, are there and gone, but they give the fragrance that special something, give it depth and make it much more complex than just fruity and green, even if the main theme is clearly currants.

Enchanted Forest is a very soft, rather fruity, flattering fragrance that is easy to wear. I had suspected a smell rather than a perfume based on the descriptions, but for me it is clearly a perfume. An outsider would probably not say: "Here it smells like forest", but rather: "Here it smells good". Ideally at least ;). All ingredients are woven into a harmonious whole. I haven't smelled anything like it yet.

Conclusion: The fragrance doesn't remind me of Sweden's forests, but that's not even necessary. Enchanted Forest is a very interesting, soft, unusual and well wearable fragrance, which I constantly have to sniff and which somehow doesn't let me go. Obviously his spell is already working!

Arrived
I have often been in love in my life with everything that goes with it: butterflies in my stomach, euphoria, heartache, disappointment, reconciliation, loss of reality, cognition, etc.
Sometimes it was just days, sometimes weeks, sometimes months, sometimes years - my emotions were always on a roller coaster.

At some point, the reality always caught up with me, which made me understand: Jo, it's quite nice, but that's not it yet. But I could have told you before, too At some point I had had enough of the stupid cow, showed her the stinky finger and swore that if she didn't want to leave me alone, I wouldn't give her the opportunity for satisfaction anymore - and swore away the men's world
So I lived quietly and contentedly for a while, happy to be rid of men and vicious reality...until I sat in the kitchen with my girlfriend and her roommate, whom I had never met before, burst in.
He grinned at us broadly and at that moment only one thought shot through my head:
There you are at last!

And although we still needed 1 1/2 years to actually get involved with each other, he was the one with whom I learned that love is not euphoria and heartache, but rather peace and understanding That love cannot be measured by jealousy and possessiveness, but by the fact that one gives freedom to the other and is nevertheless home to each other.
That love does not mean that one harmonizes perfectly in all points, but that one leaves one's peculiarities to the other and keeps one's own.

The reality, the stupid Ische, is no longer quite so stupid, even if it sometimes still tries to intervene a little.
She had to realize that we wouldn't let go of her, just because she wanted to put a stick between our legs again, but that we were just holding each other tighter.

Why I'm telling you this?

Because I had this feeling of "There you are finally!" at Enchanted Forest as well.
Despite its corners and edges, it is exactly what I have always been looking for.
Every forest, every garden, every ray of sunshine, every snowflake, every happy memory of my life envelops me when I wear this scent.

It's shady, but not dark.
Dancing light sprinkles act like elf lights between friendly green trees.
Fog, damp forest soil, hoar frost and at the same time solar heat.
A fir tree with fresh shoots, on which strangely delicate snow falls.
Black currants, from the shrub directly into the mouth and I rub the dry leaves between my fingers in the November storm.

With Enchanted Forest I am child and adult at the same time.
Feel happy, playful, peaceful, confident, melancholic, jump in thoughts about a clearing in summer and stand thickly wrapped up in a winter garden.

The magic forest and me - this is the really big love.

After a boozy, yet spicy fruity-green opening, this juicy fruity-sweet Gourmand, slowly settles to a warm and earthy resinous-woody base.

On first wearing, in warm weather, this smells not much different to the UK drink Ribena.
