Is there a fresh forest fragrance out there with moss, wood and lavender that doesn´t smell dated? What are your favourites/recomendations? Do I mean a forest of leaves or of pine and fir? I can´t decide but I´m leaning more towards the fir theme. I´ve tried quite a few of both chypres and fougeres to find something since this is kind of a combo of the two cathegoeries but I am out of ideas. How do I go about smelling like a forest? Anyone?
I recommend you try Pino Silvestre and Guerlain's Winter Delice. I think they are both rather foresty.
Also, there are two perfumes in my collection that fit your descriptions perfectly:
Bois d'Hiver, a woody, coniferous and slightly spicy and citrusy with a sweet and warm base of fir absolute (it's less sharp than most coniferous oils are)http://ayalamoriel.com/perfumes.cfm?...&product_id=25http://www.basenotes.net/ID26126871.html
and Rainforest - a green, foresty chypre, with notes of juniper and black spruce, violet leaf and a base of moss and damp earth notes.http://ayalamoriel.com/perfumes.cfm?...&product_id=46http://www.basenotes.net/ID26125783.html
If you PM me or email firstname.lastname@example.org
I will be more than happy than send you these to samples!
All the best in your search,
