    Re: A spooky, sensual forest perfume?

    Agree with Black Tourmaline, Norne, Yatagan, and the Juniper Ridge offerings. I'd add the new Imaginary Author's A City on Fire, too. I love Fou d'Absinthe but it doesn't fit this description for me.

    Re: A city on fire "imaginary authors"

    Agree. BTW, the sample of Cape Heartache I was sent along with this sample was less sweet and fruity than the bottle of it I own. I think he's toned down that strawberry note.
