  1. This was a warm, realistic forest-y scent, heavy on the terpenic pine needle aspects like a PNW forest, with plenty of additional brightness from the citrus and berry aspects. The citrus dissipates throughout the day, leaving a still-fairly-sweet warm ambery cedarwood on the skin after a few hours. I personally prefer some of the pure forest perfumes from Arcana because those treelike notes are addictive, but I think this would work well for someone who enjoys more abstract perfumes or who may otherwise find woodsy scents too aggressive and realistic. This has hints of literal pine but also plenty of warmth and brightness to keep it interesting.
