This scent starts out woodsy, chocolatey, and herbal, with just a hint of cherry. I really like this beginning stage, it's such a complex scent. After it's been worn a while it fades a bit, and on me smells very similar to Witch's cottage (except without the buttery pastry and spice). Actually, after they've been on for a long time, the two smell almost identical on me, and it's just the opening notes that are different. I haven't seen many other comments about it being similar to Witch's cottage though, so maybe it's just me?

Got a sample of this and I like it! I rarely like cherry fragrances but I have been pleased by the cherry in this and Cherry Cordial. It also has what smells like the pipe tobacco from vanilla pipe tobacco in it, so if you like that you might like this. It doesn't go funky on me...smells true.

This one took me a few months to come around to. I've had it for about 6 months, and until last night I thought I didn't like this one. Chocolate notes aren't my favorite and often don't work on me, so I figured it wasn't meant to be when this didn't smell like I thought it should. I tried it last night to get it fresh in my nose for a review, and oh my goodness, it smells like eating rich, fudgey black forest cake while taking a midnight stroll through a dark forest in late fall or winter--no leaves or greenery of any kind, just fragrant woods and cool air. Gorgeous, weird, atmospheric, foody.

I typically am not crazy about gourmands - the idea of cherry in a perfume would usually turn me off immediately. When I think of cherry, I get the sense that the perfume would be immature, synthetic, or too sweet. I tried Black Forest not expecting to like it at all, but ended up buying a full bottle almost immediately. The notes are so well blended that the effect isn't so much gourmand as it is more the effect of the actual Black Forest itself. There are woody notes, dry and dusty chocolate, dry leaves, wood, and of course the dark, natural cherry. I never did go visit the Black Forest, but I did spend some time in Munich and Neuschwanstein castle, and as weird as it seems, this perfume reminds me of that magical, wonderful trip. It's a mystical perfume that conveys the atmosphere of what I imagine the Black Forest to be. I do regret not going to the Black Forest on my trip, but at least I have this bottle to console myself.
