Trial of the Grasses

The perfume starts off with a damp, right-after-rain, greenish forest-floor vibe. Wet soil and herbs (wild mint is the most prominent) are all around as you walk in the woods. After around 30 minutes a distant, slightly sour and well-rounded aromatic smoke mixed with the essence of vetiver and nagarmotha hits your nose. The smoke accord is amping up, as you reach the fire in a forest-glade surrounded by giant oaks. As you sit close to the fire, the smell of oakmoss and precious woods is mixing up with the smoke and mellows to a nice, slightly dry woody base sweetened a bit by balsamic notes. Longevity is great, 8+ hours on my skin, projection is excellent for a good 2-3 hours, great for another 3, and perfume will sit close to your skin for the last 2-3 hours.
Lovely fragrance

Aran / อรัญ - Prin

Aran / อรัญ Spin-off for Aranyaka
