Death and Floral
Mesnee D'Hellequin is the breath of the wild northern forest on a full moon night. An uncivilized tangle of balsam pine, cypress needles, cedar bark, teakwood, vetiver root, galbanum, lichen, moss, dried leaves, damp earth and forest fungi. This is considered a woody chypre for men but I actually wear it.
This is the alcohol free perfume, not an oil. It is also free of parabens, phthalates, PDGs and other unpleasant things. Alkemia is hand-blended and small batch perfumery using natural essences, ethically rendered accords, and lab-created aroma molecules.
Fragrantica: "Pretty good description on a dark forest kind of scent. Absolutely back to nature here. Wet moss, lichen, cypress and slight bit of fir and wet soil is what I detect in this. Pretty masculine on my skin. This has a raw edge to it."
Fragrantica: "This is a masculine scent but I feel that women could also wear it if they like very woody scents. For me pine is most prominent."
