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

Adventures in an enchanted forest
Häxan is a fragrance full of beauty. It's not only simply beautiful, it's somehow hauntingly beautiful.
Smelling Häxan I can evoke all the fantasy novels I've read in my elder childhood, all the enchanted or even haunted woods, where the mighty warriors, crafty wizards or elven archers ever put their steps into, and where they had to face various challenges and encounters with the mystical creatures of the very deep forests.
An earthy, mysterious, deep, dark, and yet inviting and irresistible smell, which will embrace you and never again release you.

Spin-off for Aranyaka
Aran is a slighlty less complex, less deep version of PRYN -Aranyaka (which I adore so much). Aran is clearly a great perfume, very well blended, and without any doubt inspired by Aranyaka, but somehow it lacks the 'magic' that Aranyaka has.
