Enchanted ForestSold Out
Enchanted Forest is inspired by the endless sea of Russian forests and fairytales, as well as the most sensual ancient Slavic celebration named Kupala, rooted in the times of darkness, when all on the Earth knew its soul and its name (often too powerful to be uttered in vain or at all). French perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour, the famous creator of fragrances for L'Artisan Parfumeur, Comme des Garçons and Penhaligon's, built Enchanted Forest around black currant, the smell and taste of which are so beloved in Russia and many other countries where it grows.
“The challenge was great: I had to magnify the raw material (blackcurrant), a material used very often in perfumery and sometimes overused inelegantly through notes of red fruits, and in this regard I made a sort of soliflore. Soliflores are generally constructed on floral bases such as jasmine, rose, tuberose, but for Enchanted Forest the intention was quite different… and I had the idea of working the blackcurrant throughout the structure (head, heart, bottom) of the perfume. To do this, I used no less than a blackcurrant CO2 (an extract obtained directly from the blackcurrant buds, which is free of solvent residues), an absolute of blackcurrant and two different blackcurrant bases, including one of my own creation, to build a sort of skeleton, a vertical structure on which the entire perfume would be built.“ – Bertrand Duchaufour

When I think of forests, I think of woods and moss and sunshine and wildflowers - maybe also a little pine. This smelled like current syrup and greens, and I am not very in to very green frsgrsnces.
Very refreshing and enchanting fragrance! I def reccomend
The smell was green and too strong for me
This fragrance makes me think of what Narnia would smell like or Fantasia from the Neverending Story. It's earthy, woodsy, cedar/pine, moss, green. I love fragrances that paint a picture in my mind and tell a story. It's very unique and this is one you could wear for fun,but I don't see this as a fragrance appropriate for the office or formal events. It retails for $180.00, so I'm undecided if I love it THAT much to justify the cost.
Sweet, green, woody, and pine. Incredible but different smell. It's a short (3-4 hours) but extremely pleasant natural scent. I walked past my wife about an hour after applying it the first time. She said "mmm you smell sexy". good enough for me!
