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 all around it. Very much like the amplified violets of Guerlain's Insolence EDP, I can imagine not many people appreciating this Blackcurrant dominant beauty simply because it’s a rare occasion to find the Blackcurrant note amplified in this fashion. I personally have never smelled a composition that even showcases this note, let alone so intensely. I have, however, been lucky enough to grow up in the Eastern parts of the world where the dark forests of the Northlands are brimming with the scent of dark, wild fruits that this perfume has magnificently captured. As you walk through these magical woods, the smell of the moist earth fills your nostrils and the Blackcurrant bushes, with their bountiful yield, beckon you to pick their mouthwatering fruits as a most fulfilling sustenance for your journey. The Fir, Cedar, Opoponax, and the Oakmoss notes blend together to emulate these fresh woods flawlessly. The amplified Blackcurrant, though it does feel like it’s on steroids on occasion, adds deliciously to this mix and won’t let go until the very end, which is well after 12+ hours on my skin. In “The Fir Tree”, the beautiful little fir tree came to comprehend its own beauty when it was too late to enjoy it. Enchanted Forest however, knows and enjoys its splendor. Rightfully so. I give 10 out of 10 for this visionary Masterpiece.

But you literally need to have a sweet tooth to wear it. :) On my skin, this fragrance fills the room with only two sprays and lasts around 12 hours. I get sticky sweet raspberries cooked in dark berry compote in a cedarwood pot. By no means...

Perfume Calligraphy Rose Oh.My.Word.
If animals had a signature perfume, this would’ve belonged to the Black Widow! A dark, dangerous lady with a red core. Black spices, luscious red roses, and a touch of gooey balminess that sticks to you like a spider web. If Matahari wore this, she would’ve...
