    Default Re: I have to get this off my chest.

    So as a follow up to my last post, nope, not BN hype. The stuff is magical, and you are right to wonder where it has been all your life.

    It's mature but not age restrictive, deep and complex but not confusing, refreshing but not citrusy, and absolutely transportive. The first few hours this is on the skin, it's like you are in a coniferous forest, not a bedroom or house or meeting room or church. You are one with the forest.

    I've only worn it once, but in that time I was wondering when I could experience it again. The only downside for me was a lack of longevity (which others apparently don't experience), as I only got 4 hours off of the one sample spray.

    Glad to hear others are loving it. I will have to try Black Tourmaline, if it is similar. Norne has made my wishlist for sure. Well worth the price.

    Strange that my impressions are so different - I was expecting a piney powerhouse, but all I get is a sawdusty, amateurish skin scent (with good longevity).
    I got my sample directly from Slumberhouse - can it have been altered already? Maybe my nose is just terrible!

    I definitely found it very sawdusty/dry (as opposed to moist foresty) too. Also, being an all-natural composition, it probably won't project as much as most commercial frags which utilize especially diffusive molecules like hedione, etc.
