Solstice Scents Cliffside Bonfire
This is one of Solstice Scent's first dual concept fragrances, meant to embody the luxurious decadence of black forest cake and the dark secluded imagery of the Black Forest in Germany. The focus was on rich exotic wood notes instead of conifer notes to represent the forest so the fragrance is very heavy on the woods. The cherries are detectable on initial application but fall into a chasm of deep dark notes that serve to tame the gourmand element. This is not a standard foodie scent. It is full of character and depth but after a few hours on the skin it turns a lot sweeter when the whipped cream note is most apparent. However, the woods keep it grounded and it stays a super delicious incensy scent.
Black Forest features notes of agarwood, nagarmotha essential oil, tobacco absolute, dark and milk chocolate, cocoa absolute, maraschino and black cherries, hay absolute, sandalwood essential oil, whipped cream and a drop of pink peppercorn essential oil. It was created as part of a collection of fragrances based on the fictional town of Foxcroft, Maine. Black Forest is an eau de parfum, edp.
