Botanical Fragrance - Adirondack

Tribute to the scent of the Adirondacks. A walk through an evergreen forest, a swim in a lake, a nap on soft pine needles, a campfire nearby.

Size: 6 ml.

Artist: Priya Means Love

This unisex botanical fragrance opens with the full scent of clean, cool air sparkling with the presence of a thousand conifers. A walk through the woods leads to a swim in a lake, the water tea-colored from the rich forest, the lake bed soft and a little silty, the sun high, boughs of white pine arching over the water. After, a nap on the forest floor on a deep soft bed of pine needles, smoke from a campfire drifting in and out of awareness. Green, comforting, fortifying.

Selected notes: balsam fir, pines, cedars, sumac, smoky cade, set into a tincture of reindeer moss growing on dry white pine needles that I foraged in the Adirondacks this summer.

This is the botanical fragrance I've been trying to make for years -- a true deep evergreen scent, green fresh and foresty start to finish, not going sweet and jammy -- a true capture of the northern forests of the Adirondacks that I love, my inspiration. If you've ever played with aromatics, you know how beautiful conifer needle oils can be -- balsam fir, black spruce, pines -- and how ephemeral they are, vanishing after mere minutes on the skin. Not so, this scent -- it lasts for hours, yet stays true to the olfactory experience of these gorgeous conifer forests humming with life, green and fresh and clean.

A must try for anyone whose heart rushes at the memory of driving down forest roads and rolling down the windows, of campfires under pines, of loon calls and lake swims under blue skies, of Christmas tree farms with family.
