This is the captured scent of a cold, moonless night, lost deep within the darkest wood. Haunting and desolate, this scent evokes images of fairy tale tragedy and half-remembered nightmares. Thick, viscous pine with ambergris, black musk, juniper and cypress.

    This is very fresh and clean, a little cold. I primarily smell the juniper and cypress. Once it dries it warms up a little from the musk. It’s a slightly sweet, soapy smell. It’s nice, but I think that it’s better suited for a man. It would also probably be nice to use in a warmer come the holiday season. Unfortunately, it gives me a headache.

    Wet: Spicy and musky, no hint of trees or pine just yet. This smells very much like a spicy men’s cologne on me when wet, actually. A scent I would love on my boyfriend, but not so much on me.

    Dry: The juniper and pine comes out on me when dry and the musk starts to fade. I still wouldn’t say that it smells like a forest on me though–more like the scent of my clothes after I have returned from a night lost in the woods. Like sniffing a previously clean, dryer sheet scented shirt that now contains remnants of cold, crisp air and tree branches. That dryer sheet scent lingers amongst the other, more foresty smells.

    The musk comes out a bit more on my boyfriend, keeping it closer to the way it smells on me when wet. I might end up giving it to him, as it isn’t quite what I expected.

    I absolutely loved this scent! I was a bit worried when I ordered it that it would read too masculine, but it fit perfectly with my body chemistry and made me feel like a forest witch. It is not a sweet or feminine scent, to be sure, but if you’re looking for a bold, unisex perfume that really smells like pine trees in an authentic way (as opposed to that fake pine scent often found in candles and air fresheners), this is for you.

    I was looking for a scent that was earthy yet bold. Black Forest doesn’t disappoint. When wet the pine notes are strong but not overpowering. Combined with the subtler cypress, it makes for a cool, clean sent. When dry, the pine fades allowing the juniper and cypress to come through. Again, the scent is steady but not overwhelming. The black musk makes for a tastefully masculine end note. It’s gritty without being harsh-elegant yet sharp like a huntresses dagger.
