Enchanted Forest

The Scoop
Enchanted Forest is inspired by the endless sea of Russian forests and fairytales, as well as the most sensual ancient Slavic celebration named Kupala, rooted in the times of darkness, when all on the Earth knew its soul and its name (often too powerful to be uttered in vain or at all). French perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour, the famous creator of fragrances for L'Artisan Parfumeur, Comme des Garçons and Penhaligon's, built Enchanted Forest around black currant, the smell and taste of which are so beloved in Russia and many other countries where it grows.

“The challenge was great: I had to magnify the raw material (blackcurrant), a material used very often in perfumery and sometimes overused inelegantly through notes of red fruits, and in this regard I made a sort of soliflore. Soliflores are generally constructed on floral bases such as jasmine, rose, tuberose, but for Enchanted Forest the intention was quite different… and I had the idea of working the blackcurrant throughout the structure (head, heart, bottom) of the perfume. To do this, I used no less than a blackcurrant CO2 (an extract obtained directly from the blackcurrant buds, which is free of solvent residues), an absolute of blackcurrant and two different blackcurrant bases, including one of my own creation, to build a sort of skeleton, a vertical structure on which the entire perfume would be built.“ – Bertrand Duchaufour

I had to try this because the bottle is so pretty! It smells exactly like a Christmas tree strung with a fresh cranberry garland. When I was little we would go into the woods and cut a live Christmas tree. Then my mom would put apple cider on our wood burning stove and we would sit around stringing bags of fresh cranberries on to strings with carpet needles. This is exactly what this perfume smells like to me!

Smells like pungent blackcurrent for the most part and thats really it. Way too sweet and doesn't conjure forest images at all. I cant imagine this on a man. It is very one-dimensional considering the many splendid sounding notes,

The rich juiciness of this scent is kind of exciting, like stumbling into the impenetrable shadows of summer forest, which remains dark even at midday. However, its audacity makes me think of cartoons and villains. This is what Mr. Glass from Unbreakable smells like. Or the Joker. Fruity and imbalanced. Wearing purple underwear.

I'm reminded of grape bubble gum.

I don't know all the lingo and I'm not going to devote much time to flowery language. All I can say is that this is the most luscious, enchanting perfume I've ever had the pleasure of wearing. I adore it on me. The first time I wore it I could not stop smelling myself. Entirely heady and distracting. I thought I'd not be able to wear it at work if I wanted to get anything done. But the sample allowed me to wear it a few times and I eventually regained my senses enough to do my job. Every time I wore it someone commented positively on it. If your scale went up that high, I'd give it a 10. Just ordered the full size. Cannot WAIT until it arrives. :-)

I love it! It is so unique and authentic and original! I have to say that there is a phase when it is not very appealing on my skin, but that goes away quickly! it is refreshing and musky berries all over!

This is a very familiar scent of black current, not just berries, like in many fruity fragrances, but entire bush with branches and leaves. The smell is so authentic that it instantly transports me back to Russia and back in time to my childhood when I spent my summers at dacha (Russian summer house). We had a lot of bushes of black current and it smelled exactly like Enchanted Forest. Yet, this perfume is more complex, there is something else intermingles with black current, I just cannot tell what it is. The creator of this perfume is a genius! Because of my memories I envision sunny summer day, not dark, mysterious, almost scary forest, as it was described. I do not pick up fir notes at all, and it is alright with me, since I am already more than impressed. When I first apply Enchanted forest on my clothes, I smell some flowers as well, may be carnation, in addition to predominant note of black current. On my skin, I do not pick up flowers at all. This is a very precious perfume to me and I am looking forward to buying a full bottle of it. For me it is impossible to enjoy perfumes without having this beauty in my collection. I applaud Bertrand Duchaufour for creating this masterpiece!

It's a mess. Absolutely no complexity. Muddled. No smooth rendition between notes & accords. Reminds me of when I get stuck in sand when I go off roading. Agonizing. Complexity is not an opinion, nor is harmony of transition between top, middle and base. Not all perfumes are intended to be complex, nor should they be. But it's clear when Enchanted Forest was intended to be complex but failed miserably. Then there's the muddled transition. Don't get me wrong. I love B. Duchafour. Heck I own 15 of his creations but it's like a mangled walrus freeing itself from quicksand. It's not a graceful sight. Epic failure.

Think of a scene from 'A Mid Summer Night's Dream' with Queen of the faeries,Tatiana asleep in her beloved forest. Slumbering quietly amongst the sweet black current bushes nestled amongst the mix of coloured Autumn leaves and warm earth. She is blanketed by bluebells and Lily of the Valley safely cocooned amidst the bright orange speckled mushrooms which grow under the mighty pine trees. The air is fresh with the musty woodiness and her dress glistens with diamond dew drops and pearls of crystal water all woven together by silky spider's web.. Her robes reflect the warm rosy tones of the flora and the rustic burnt orange foliage of the glade. This scent is of fresh ripe blackcurrant and earthy woodlands, worthy of any Faerie Queen in any Enchanted Forest.

Great room spray, and even then in very very small doses!
By Kat - Designer from Northern Rockies on 1/16/2013
A major disappointment. This is less forest and more boozy tropical punch. Not bad smelling, but why smell like you are a drunkard?
