  1. So far not good, smells very much like something else but not sure what, the fir needles and blackberry are not distinct. tried again, just kind of indistinct

  2. Wet, it’s a sharp, dark dirty green, like leaves trampled in a wet pile of dirt. It reminds me The Fall of the House of Usher. On the skin, it warms up a bit. It’s described as a “shadowy green atmospheric”, and it is that. But it’s a very wearable atmospheric. Wet, I wasn’t sure I was going to like it. On the dry down, though, I’m enjoying it very much. The blackberry comes out, softening and warming up the scent a touch to combat the cold dirtiness.

  3. smells like a damp haunted forest in the best way possible. The fir needles are fresh, not astringent as they can sometimes be, the blackberry is barely noticeable but helps to add a bit of sweet.

  4. COLD and earthy with a distinct damp edge. In other words, mud! And lots of it! A Very Good Boye or Girle has tracked in a lot of mud.

  5. Starts off mostly mud and a bit of fir, counterbalanced with a touch of blackberry. Then the asphalt and fur appear in the drydown. The fur is luckily not a “wet dog” kind of thing, but like an actual animal – or, combined with the blackberry it makes kind of a “freshly shampooed hair” feel. The blackberry is really excellent and realistic, I almost wish there was more of it but I appreciate how it peeks in and out of the scent throughout the wear time.

  6. This is a winner!! I love that first blast of sharp fir needless, but they are fresh and not resinous! At application you get a cold feeling from it, love that! Don’t get any mud, but with wear there’s also a hint of blackberry noticeable. Overall it feels cold on the skin, perfect in this heat! 🥰
