    I wore some Fume today on what was hopefully the last day of heavy rain we'll have here for a while. Fume vibes really well with overcast weather I think, and the dense fog suited it perfectly. It's a dank beast, maybe not completely suited for your standard workplace but perfectly at home in the chilly rain.

    Fume has a very nice front-and-center balsam fir absolute note that wears a little bit like newer versions of Norne, and it hits you hard on first spray. While there isn't an explicitly listed smoke note it's like the aftermath of a forest fire, maybe once the fire has been put out by rain. There is a muted hit of oakmoss that lends a bit of damp greenery to the scene.

    After a few hours the fir retreats to a degree and the tea, oakmoss and vetiver become much more prominent. I like this stage the least, but it's still quite nice. Fume sticks around for most of the day with a single spray under my shirt.

    I think one of it's greatest strengths is in it's ability to be vividly transportive; if you've been hiking or camping then wearing this is sure to bring back some memories. When you're pining for a getaway trip to the mountains, a few sprays of Fume might satisfy you instead.
