In the kind of hot hot heat we’ve been experiencing lately, the greener notes used in perfumery can offer a direct and cooling kind of freshness that conjures the experience of sheltering from the midday sun underneath a dappled forest canopy of swaying firs. These overtly green notes - much like the trunks of coniferous trees - are rich with resinous materials, cloaked with camphor and engorged by aspects of eucalyptus.
Pines, firs, cypress trees and junipers… they’ve been used constantly in perfumery throughout the ages because of their cooling properties. Some of them might smell medicinal (like Vicks vapor rub), others might smell alive like toothpaste but the thing they all have in common is an overbearing sense of freshness. This timely collection features six separate fragrances that use some of the notes mentioned to provide that unique kind of serenely fresh coniferous bliss.
