Solstice Scents Lace Draped Spectre
Foxcroft is the essence of a late-afternoon Autumn day. It is an incredible blend of wet decaying leaves, rich black soil, dry rustling leaves, Fall air, woods and chimney smoke, Foxcroft is cool air coupled with fiery red, orange and golden leaves, a sweet sharp green note, fertile wet dirt and a touch of woods laced with the intoxicating smoke from fireplaces burning throughout the countryside.
Foxcroft is very potent on first sniff. It smells of very wet decaying leaves but on the skin will evolve into a softer and more wearable scent with dry leaves and the soft smoke and wood notes coming out. Foxcroft features notes of decaying leaves, rich black soil, dry leaves, Fall air, woods and chimney smoke. We also carry Foxcroft Intense EDP as well.
Created as part of a collection of fragrances based on the fictional town of Foxcroft, Maine, Foxcroft is an eau de parfum, edp.
SOLSTICE SCENTS FOXCROFT REVIEWS
Fragrantica: OH my goodness!!! I LOVE this!!! The only other Foxcroft I have smelled is Foxcroft Fairgrounds and this is that same exact smoky fall air accord without all the gourmand sweetness. Don’t get me wrong Fairgrounds is fantastic but THIS one is the Foxcroft for me. It smells like cold fall air clinging to the coat of a distinguished Victorian gentleman. It has a bit of an underlying expensive old fashioned cologne vibe. Unisex leaning slightly more masculine. Moderate to skin close silage
Fragrantica: This is a genuinely fantastic, and accurate representation of the olfactory experience of Autumn. Highly reminiscent of hiking the trails here in our western New York Autumns....this scent captures it all....the leaves, the soil, the crisp air....Breathtaking! Love love LOVE! if you have ever wanted to capture the true essence of Autumn as a fragrance....look no further...this is IT! THE VERDICT: MASTERPIECE
Fragrantica: This is my all-time (so far) favorite Solstice Scent. We have old gunnery forts in my area, turned into state parks, and we often go up to hike and take photographs. It's an annual tradition and we usually do it around autumn, so this perfume is perfect for me when I can't be tramping around abandoned concrete bunkers overgrown with Pacific Northwest forests. Foxcroft is a perfect melange of dirt and leaf mold with old wood notes underneath. It fades very fast to a light oakmoss cologne, but that just makes it smell more like the forest. I adore this one. Definitely a great autumn air scent.
Bunny Echoes: Foxcroft is autumn and winter combined in a single perfume bottle. As soon as I apply it, I get the image of prodding at a leaf pile with a wooden stick. The scent is damp, not dry but also not drenching wet, and in terms of colour, it’s going from lush green to dark brown. I’ve tried some other leafy perfumes that turned out to be more like men’s cologne but Foxcroft is not one of them. It’s the most realistic forest scent that I own. As one of my colleagues put it, it smells like the forest when you go mushroom picking. Here I’d like to add that Foxcroft does not smell mushroom-y but more like moist soil underneath layers and layers of leaves.
Reddit: I put this on, and the very first note I get hit with, without even looking at the notes, is sweet smoke. The first time I ever tried this, that smoke straight-up went BBQ-y for the first five minutes of wear, but it doesn't do that anymore - it's just... Very strong woodsmoke with a hint of sweetness. The smoke fades after just a few minutes, and I start getting the other atmospheric notes: A woody note that smells fresh and sap-sticky, like a newly splintered evergreen branch; dry fall leaves that smell so realistic that I can picture picking them up and crunching them in my hand; the emptiness of cool fall air; and damp earth from a rainstorm that happened the other day. The smoke's still there, kind of encompassing everything, but it's much lighter now. And... Looking at the notes, I guess that's literally everything that's in it! Dang. Talk about a scent being dead-on. On the dry-down, this takes on a warm, almost... Maple-y quality? Like slightly burnt maple leaves. I like it. It's really cozy. This wears a bit close to the skin on me without actually being light, but lasts for a pretty long time - a few hours in and even after scrubbing it from my wrist with dish soap, O'm still smelling earth and decaying leaves. RATING: 5/5. A really beautiful atmospheric. I'm not really interested in smelling like it, but it's objectively very well made.
