  1. Beautiful ancient mossy forest in a bottle – there’s a lot going on with this perfume, it’s very unique! Alternatively it reminds me of a musty and damp basement of an extremely old antique house. I feel like this perfume is definitely more of an atmospheric perfume than something one should wear in a crowd as it’s pretty strong, long lasting and maybe a little headache inducing if experienced for too long. It’s definitely worth a try 🙂

  2. This is the most true-to-life moss fragrance I’ve ever had the pleasure of smelling. It’s green incarnate, and definitely conjures up imagery of a wet, mossy forest with ferns and lichen everywhere.

  3. When first applied, it smells just like summer moss! It really makes me feel like I’m smelling the floor of a pine forest, and I love it. Buuut as it wears it settles into mostly incense :/

  4. It smelled very spicy and green, but overall the incense element was too much for me to really enjoy this. I can see how people that don’t mind incense would love this scent though! The mosses, ferns, and autumnal leaves are captured extremely well.

  5. Smells like a gorgeous little fairy grove in a warm sunny forest, to my nose. After several months of aging I do also get a hint of incense in the background, so I guess witches do their thing in this grove sometimes, and I dig it.

    I will say the first few minutes with this one I get an astringent green smell that I’m pretty sure is the “piquant cedar tips” and it’s so potent that for that first few minutes it’s all I smell– especially for the first month or two. Once the perfume ages a bit, that’s less of an issue for me and I can enjoy my incensey fairy grove in peace.
