You are sitting by the campfire, smoking cigars, drinking your rum, snacking on pistachios, citronella torches burning in the background, with the occasional fresh breeze of the forest blowing by. This fragrance is inspired by an amazing childhood at a special campground every summer: Vicki-Lin on Long Lake in Maine.
With notes of birch tar, cade, choya loban, choya naks, fir, citronella, pistachio nut tincture, skunk cabbage tincture, fern tincture, pine sap tincture, hemlock needle tincture and hemlock wood chip tincture. It is an eau de parfum, edp.
TSVGA Vicki-Lin Reviews
LuckyScent: Wow. This is a remarkable scent. I will draw out a quick scene. You are lost in the Rocky Mountains and you come across a gentleman chopping wood near his 2nd home. His first home would be in Manhattan. He is wearing a elegant yet worn down leather jacket, perfectly fitted. He would smell of this scent. Perfection.
LuckyScent: This scent is remarkable. If you want to smell like you have been sitting by a bonfire making concoctions that smell of vanilla, purchase this fragrance. I am very impressed.
Fragrantica: When I was younger I spent autumn with my grandparents in the mountains. Us cousins would chop wood and ready it for their wood burning stove in their mountain wood home, it was the only way they had heat in the winter under blankets of snow. This scent comes on so strong! If you’ve ever been able to experience the iron stove burning logs in the winter this is the exact smell. Strong, powerful, almost perfect.
Fragrantica: This is pure, brutal cade / birch and VERY little else. I have read about this one, how you need to give it some time to settle and all of that, but all I can get the burnt-wood bits from the birch, and the burnt charcoal from the cade. A good 3 or 4 hours in and it calms down, and the other elements come out, but by and large, this is mostly the cade and birch. Campfire all the way through...
Fragrantica: I'd say this one is the most challenging of this house. It opens with very smoky, intensely burnt woods. You have to have the patience on this one and wait for everything to mellow. You also have to know how appreciate art because this is not for everyone. More challenging than the medicinal barnyard skunky oud imo.
