Maison Martin Margiela Soul of the Forest is part of the new Reproduction of Familiar Fantasies collection from Maison Martin Margiela's Replica line. There are four fragrances in the collection. It stems from their first collection, a concept of memories and emotions transformed into scents, but takes it a step further expressing human fantasies.
In wording from their website: "The spirits of nature belong to some of mankind’s oldest mythologies. Does the forest have a soul: a dryad skipping through the trees, perhaps? An invisible presence vibrating in the very peripheries of our human awareness? Shapeless, silent, and untouchable, the soul of the forest sings a soft melody of tree song, tasting of the sweet sap of the gods."
Soul of the Forest features top notes of blackcurrant and pink pepper; middle notes of labdanum (rockrose), fir balsam and woods; and base notes of Atlas cedarwood, moss and patchouli.
