Forest Walk was inspired by the scents of summer walks in the woods. It incorporates the earthy, mossy smells of the forest floor with tree bark, tree needles, and soft floral highlights. The ingredients include multiple natural woods -- black hemlock, oak, western red cedar, New Caledonia sandalwood, fir balsam, and oakmoss -- with notes of earth, roots, and hints of jasmine sambac and violet. Resinous benzoin, amber, and labdanum soften the woods and provide lasting power in the base. Forest Walk is high in natural ingredients and can be enjoyed in any season. For men and women.

Perfumer's Comments: I gladly accepted when Mandy Aftel of Aftelier Perfume and Nathan Branch of the Nathan Branch blog asked me to participate in one of their Letters To A Fellow Perfumer series. The project gave me the opportunity to work with black hemlock absolute in a forest scent, something that I had wanted to do for a long time. I love the smells of the forest and have fond memories of hiking and riding through the redwood groves in nearby parks. You can follow the creation of Forest Walk (as well as Mandy's scent Sepia) on the Nathan Branch blog.
