THE WOODLAND COLLECTION:MONARCH
Rich Red Musk, Fir, Juniper, Cedar, Frankincense, Labdanum, Moss
NOT TO BE USED BY WOMEN WHO ARE PREGNANT OR NURSING.
A statuesque lone stag stands at the edge of the wood, surveying the valley below. His antler crown and perfect grace convey nobility and strength. The monarch of the forest remains poised, cautious and wise through all seasons.
Monarch starts with a base or refined red musk, a generous amount of fir balsam and a green botanical blend touched by smoky labdanum and oud. Frankincense resin, cedarwood and moss cover the base. A generous crown of fresh juniper berries and leaves completes the blend. Monarch smells like a coniferous wood blend with loads of incensey, exotic, spicy red musk and resins. It boldly opens with a bright green juniper on initial application. The fir, red musk and frankincense follow quickly behind. Cedar and moss weave in and out in the early stages after application and become more apparent as the wear continues. The smoky labdanum and oud float quietly in the background. This scent opens strongly on initial application but settles down after a few minutes of wear into a pleasant musky, resinous, evergreen, wood and slightly smoky fragrance. Monarch is a masculine scent, though women who like our wood blends should also enjoy it. WINTER DOVE
Vanilla Crystals, Spicy Carnation, Nutmeg, CreamTHIS BLEND CONTAINS SPICE OILS. DO NOT APPLY TO CUT OR BROKEN SKIN AS FRAGRANCE MAY STING. SKIN TEST FOR SENSITIVITY TO THE SPICE OILS PRIOR TO SLATHERING ALL OVER. MAY FEEL SLIGHTLY WARM UPON YOUR SKIN AFTER INITIAL APPLICATION.
Winter Dove is a gourmand floral blend featuring vanilla crystals, fresh nutmeg and sweet cream sprinkled with spicy pink carnation petals. The scent is sweet, spicy, creamy and feminine. The vanilla, cream and nutmeg combine to give an impression of egg nog. Upon initial application, all notes are detectable. Winter Dove starts out with a blast of nutmeg and a clove-like spice from the carnation flowers, all of which is wrapped in a boozy vanilla bean blanket. The spices and vanilla liqueur note tame after a short time and the blend softens into a lovely creamy vanilla fragrance with traces of pink carnation and a hint of the nutmeg.GREY'S CABIN
Smoked Cocoa, Cedar, Embers, Black Musk, Copal Bark, Tobacco, SpiceShake well before each use to help distribute the cocoa absolute.
Grey's Cabin is sheltered in a quiet copse of woods, well provisioned from the heavy winter just beyond the door. A warm blast of smoke and embers greets you upon application, coupled with cedarwood, black musk and a mug filled to the brim with rich hot cocoa. A hint of freshly baked spice breads sits on the far edge of the blend along with a subtle hint of tobacco. Grey's Cabin is a cozy fragrance to chase away the snowbound winter doldrums. Snuggle in front of the blazing fire on the comfiest couch with a Sherpa throw and an engrossing novel while sipping a creamy hot cocoa studded with marshmallows.
This blend contains many notes including: chocolate fragrance blend, cocoa absolute, cedar, black musk blend, aged patchouli, smoke, tobacco, copal bark and labdanum with a faint trace of spices and marshmallow. It is very woody, chocolatey, smokey and musky. Unisex leaning masculine.
HIDDEN LODGE PREMIUM FRAGRANCE
Dry Wood Blend, Oud, Woodsmoke, Spices, Castoreum (Botanical Interpretation) - 5ml
The industrious beavers have built an impenetrable fortress in a quiet section of a small lake, deep within the woods. This hidden lodge is warm, dry and perfectly protects its inhabitants from the harsh winter conditions outside.
Hidden Lodge is a dry woody blend with traces of spice and smoke and delicate animalic undertones. The dry wood portion of this fragrance is comprised of a number of fragrance and essential oils. Sandalwood, copal bark, cedar and amber combine with additional wood aromas to produce a diffusive, warm, dry foundation for this scent. The addition of the woodsmoke with very conservatively applied nutmeg and clove enhances the incensey slightly-sweet woods. A touch of a botanical castoreum blend conveys a very subtle and enjoyable animalic hint to the blend. Natural oud adds a rich and intoxicating body to the total composition. Hidden Lodge smells very incensey, warm, woodsy, smoky and slightly spicy on the skin. The spices are more detectable after initial application and fade quickly to a subtle supporting role. On initial application, there is a sweet note similar to brown sugar along with a peppery zip. These nuances are an added dimension from the combination of wood and spice notes. Some of the woods in Hidden Lodge have a natural sweetness similar to that of caramel. Though this sweet characteristic is detectable, it is subtle and Hidden Lodge is not a sweet blend. Natural sandalwood and oud were used generously in this fragrance. Unisex.
Premium 5 ml fragrance.NIGHT WATCHER PREMIUM FRAGRANCE
Forest Floor, Tree Tops, Bark, Mountain Air, Fir Balsam, Juniper, Moss, Oud, Dried Herbs, Cedar Tips - 5ml
NOT TO BE USED BY WOMEN WHO ARE PREGNANT OR NURSING.
Night Watcher is a mossy, woody, coniferous fragrance with elements evocative of the woods at night. The mood of this fragrance is quiet and introspective yet watchful and alert. Cool stone, damp forest floor and plush moss combine with fir balsam, juniper and cedar tips to produce a woodland blend with a lot of depth. Dried herbs, along with a variety of other fragrance oils, were used to create a feather accord to suggest the presence of owl feathers. The result is a dry and musky note that adds an additional layer to the forest-heavy base. On initial application, the moss and juniper emerges first in a green sensory cloud. As the fragrance wears, additional elements arise. The feather accord is displayed shortly after the mossy opening. The fir balsam and wood notes come out after the fragrance has settled on the skin for a while. Many of the other notes may not be individually detected but rather suggest the abstract concepts such as mountain air and cool stone.
Night Watcher contains a wide variety of essential and fragrance oils including but not limited to: dirt accord, fir balsam, juniper berry, cedar, moss accord, oud, sandalwood, vetiver, orris root, feather accord, amber, clary sage, nagarmotha, ambrette seed and more. Unisex leaning masculine. Women who enjoy atmospheric woods fragrances may also enjoy Night Watcher.
Premium 5 ml fragrance.
Vanilla Musk, White Fur, Wood Blend, Frozen Dirt, Snow
An elegant skin scent featuring a soft vanilla core accentuated with notes evocative of clean silky white fur. The White Fox pads through snow laced with veins of frozen dirt. A delicate wood blend accents the composition. White Fox is heavy on ethereal vanilla with traces of woody-vanilla musk. Whispers of this entrancing aroma hover just above the skin. A cool subtle frozen dirt note swirls intimately through the scent, along with the carefully restrained addition of cedar and woods notes. Soft, gentle, beautiful and tenderly balanced. Unisex leaning feminine.
