    +1 Mousse Illuminee

    My favorite coniferous note is the pine needle note in Soudain L'Hiver by Henry Jacques.

    That's the note list for Olympic Rainforest. Yes, I have been in the Olympic Rainforest and believe that Dr. Covey has been also.... My initial reaction was that this was darker, less bright green than I expected, maybe it more fully reflects the area than just the above ground plants. It obviously doesn't have everything you list but has a lot of it, worth a try!!!
    Ferns and Rhododendron are fantasy notes. But other than that the pyramid looks good.

    Yeah, I love the smell of the forest floor.
    I just smelled it recently from up close. Here's the proof.
    That dark spot is fir resin. It smells amazing. There was a lot more resin, but I washed it (hardly).
    And also there are many more wounds from falling, but I couldn't rotate my hand any more.

    Tsar is great, and the vintage reminds me a lot of vintage Esencia Loewe in its opening, but I must be anosmic to something in Tsar, because I get terrible longevity. And longevity is rarely an issue to me, even with something like Happy for Men.
    Spray less, love more.

    Look for the box with the brown and white triangles on it.....like this.... https://br.pinterest.com/pin/535083999479434001/

    This version of GPH was discontinued several years ago, but bottles of it still show up on eBay. It's what I always think of when someone mentions they want something "coniferous and/or like a forest". This fragrance opens like you're walking on the floor of a forest.
    I used to have it, finished my bottle years ago, loved it.

    Applaud your dedication!!! And it's hard to beat all natural dirt and greenery!!!! But going for a spray or two of Olympic Rainforest leaves fewer marks on my arm....
