" ... the dust of snow from a hemlock tree"
A beautiful May Sunday - and a small virus. What do you do with such a beautiful day?
One of the most beautiful activities in May is a walk in the forest, ideally in warm weather after a rainy day. The unbelievably bright, delicate green that shimmers against one of thousands and thousands of leaves. The juicy moss that has come to life in the clearings. The tiny, but so many small forest flowers: white anemones, laid out like carpets in front of a glittering brook. Yellow primrose, buttercup and the famous blue flower: the liverwort. To the left and right they line the earthy-scented forest path, then spruces, pines and firs appear and the intense, spicy scent of needles pushes its way between the light scent of leaves, flowering bearberry, sweet woodruff and fresh earth. You walk a few steps closer to the conifers to perceive the juicy resin, its sweet-spicy scent. To pick up a cone from the ground, the muffled moisture of rotting leaves and in between again a little resin scent. Then you rest next to a few juniper bushes on the edge of the forest on felled tree trunks, breathing in the fresh wood scent: it is an incredible panorama of the most diverse spicy-woody, earthy-green notes, which in May flow into forest bathing areas.
Such a panorama also unfolds when you open the simple bottle of "In the Woods" and spray the fragrance for the first time. "In the Woods" has a hemlock fir tree in the top note. It is the one that Robert Frost mentioned in his famous poem:
The way a crow/
Shook down on me/
The dust of snow/
From a hemlock tree/
Has given my heart/
A change of mood/
And saved some part/
From a day I had rued.
I can't stop thinking about that poem every time I wear In the Woods. I have never worn it in the snow before, but I find the image of the crow, which touches me so much that I can give a twist to a day, wonderful. It is the hemlock fir that marks the crow's starting point: a pine species that is at home mainly in North America, but also in Asia, in humid forest climates. Its name - "hemlock" - comes from hemlock: its ground needles have a scent similar to that of a relative of hemlock, the giant hemlock. So "hemlock" means "hemlock", and as a hemlock fir, it comes into Socrates' philosophical haze. She is thought-provoking, with her intense scent, the images she awakens with her name and her scent, invite us to reflect, to dream of the forests of Canada. Her scent gives silence, almost meditative peace, being one with nature. "In the Woods" with the accentuated hemlock is really a lyrical, meditative scent, with a strong silage, which is certainly not everyone's case, especially when you are not bathing in the forest. The shelf life is excellent. It lasts for a whole day, while you are roaming the woods
