Here's what other people are saying about Norne...
I really love this one! I sampled this when it was first available, but it smells different to me now..probably re-formulated? or tweaked perhaps. It is much nicer to my nose now, with the incense (frankincense) note more pronounced..imo. I am always on a quest for the perfect incense frag,this is really close!

Overall, Norne immediately brings back fond memories of camping when I was a teenager. It also smells like raw CBD concentrate oil and cloves. I do like this scent though. Quite interesting.

"The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep."

Not at all what I expected. I was anticipating being slapped in the face by pine branches and pelted with pine cones, which would have been fine... Instead, I got a strong candle scent. It''s interesting, but not overly appealing to me. I will try to find a way to wear it,. I really wish I''d had the true pine forest experience described in other reviews. You win some, you lose some.

One of my goals in life is to smell like a forest, so this perfume is a dream come true. It''s like walking through the darkest part of the forest on a carpet of soft moss, losing yourself in a cathedral of fir, black spruce, and hemlock. The rich incense of rotting leaves wafts up to you from the forest floor, and you can almost smell the warm memory of sunlight in its spice. Draped over everything is a silvery mist, subtle and divine, lending the entire fragrance a ethereal and mystic air. This is truly a scent for a Norn, the fates of Norse mythology, as they peer into the Well of Urðr at the foot of Yggrdrasil, whose branches reach to the heavens and roots spread down to three sacred wellssprings.

Norne is all base notes, which leaves it feeling flat, but if you want to smell like you''ve been camping in the heart of the Adirondacks and ran smack into a pine tree, this is the scent for you. Once it settled on my skin it smelled exactly like pine resin, birch tar, oak moss, and frankincense. It was much less interesting than I expected. In fact, if you purchased those absolutes and mixed them yourself, you''d end up with basically the same thing.

This is unquestionably a masterpiece. Not for everyone and not for the faint hearted. A beautiful dark resinous natural incense that reminds you of your darkest most decadent thoughts, this beauty opens with a strong fir and moss smell and dries down to a beautiful incense. Very few perfumes have moved me like this one. I am thus compelled to write this first Luckyscent review.

Based on the 5-star review I gave this another chance. On 2nd try, and a much lighter dose, I can kinda see what the ppl who like it like. It''s a true pine-y scent, but with a big frankincense? that takes up the whole bottom half of this fragrance and puts it over the cliff for me personally, but def makes a powerful statement. And that whole thing sticks like glue. Still nasty IMO, still unwearable, but as fragrance art, I can appreciate it...from a far distance.

Norne is spectacular. It has the power to transport you to places of pristine beauty all through your sense of smell. I am a conifer junkie, and this fragrance is indeed special. It is sticky and strong, just like the fir trees that gave birth to it''s scent. If you don''t like strong coniferous, forest smells, then you probably won''t like Norne. I however, love those scents...they are my personal favorites, so of course, Norne will always be in my rotation. Bravo, Josh Lobb and Slumberhouse with this brilliant creation...the mighty NORNE!

Definitely agree with burnt-lumber opening, but then it sits in an unpleasantly heavy, tar-like place. Grotesque, really. Lacking the "pickle" smell that so much of Slumberhouse seems to have, but thoroughly disgusting anyway, I can''t even call this perfume, it''s just really unpleasant. A perfume you really hope no one else notices you wearing.

The first few minutes of this one were a rare get-it-off-me situation, with a heavy burnt-processed-lumber note that genuinely hurt my feelings. For you, dear reader, I toughed it out, and the scent has opened up nicely -- fern, lichen, hemlock, fir (not pine, thanks!), smoke, and yes, a note similar to the heavy fog we get in our forests up here. Also a note of wet gravel, which I assume is an in-joke for the locals. (Can confirm.) One star docked for that opening assault, but very well done.

A dark haunted forest...with a slight stench from a witch''s brew. I adore this one!

I live in a cabin in the woods in the Deschutes National Forest. When I walk outside I smell a glorious co-mingling of trees and earth. Norne is that smell. My search for the perfect forest scent has ended. Outstanding.

I love this fragrance! Dark and deep. Foggy and foresty. It makes me happy.

Wonderful scent. Like being around a campfire in the middle of a pine forest. This is not a hint of pine and smoke. This is a huge blast of both. As soon as I smelled the sample I bought the full bottle. Really amazing.

I''m sorry to have to burst this beautiful bubble that this very creative company has created for you all, but I''m going to do it! I paid $8 for this sample, and was SO excited to try it based on the description, which sounded so mystical and just lovely in kind of an ominous way. Ummm... this is just straight up pine. That is all it smells like! There is absolutely zero development, and I smelled none of the moss or lichen listed in the notes. I asked my boyfriend his opinion, and he agreed with me. We ended up using the rest of the sample to freshen up some of our laundry!! Not good! I will still try Slumberhouse''s Pear and Olive, cause I am always interested in unusual scents, but if that is a bust, no more from this company!

Norne is wonderful!! Having grown up in the Pacific NorthWest, it is a blast of home for me. Not something I would wear during the work day but I love it once I get home. The pine, moss, and earth notes combine together and I can''t stop sniffing my wrist. Amazing sillage and longevity, fairly linear but I like that for this scent. It''s like the first breath of fresh air when you stick your head out of the tent or the car into a great Pacific coast forest. Ahhh!

I''m giving this three stars because it is spectacularly successful at doing what it says it''s going to do: drop you nose-first into the middle of a Pacific Northwest conifer forest. Top notes of cedar, moss, cedar, campfire smoke, cedar, decaying pine needles and cedar simply explode when this hits your skin. It''s the most cinematically environmental fragrance I''ve ever experienced, and those top notes have great longevity. Once they do dry down you''re left with an incensey skin scent that, as others have pointed out, is reminiscent of essential oils worn by hippies. I do not understand the references in other reviews to sweaty overalls... I noted nothing of the kind. Everything here strikes me as being profoundly vegetal.I guess my main problem with this fragrance is, who really wants to smell like this? I guess if you were a sales rep for a condo development in the Cascades or something, you might want to don this for your PowerPoint presentation. Otherwise, I can''t imagine what occasion this is for.My wife said, "You better wash that off before you start attracting bears."Brilliant execution, gorgeous look to the stuff (green-black and murky, very evocative), delivers 100% on the promise. I just can''t imagine ever wearing this.

Plenty of fir balsam and an attractive dryness suggesting sawmills and sawdust. A hint of clove like spiciness. My favourite of Mr Lobb''s compositions that I have so far tried.

After reading the notes (fungus?) I felt daring and ordered a sample. The juice that arrived resembled pond water tinged with algae. Thus I lost my nerve. My foray into the forest of Norne came vicariously. I smeared a tiny amout from the vial on my semi-willing victim--(ahem)--I mean, my husband. And waited. What wafted up was an instant scent memory. Vividly the odor conjured up the remembrance of my father barbecuing outside after having worked in the fields all day. The sharp leather tang of his worn work gloves mixed with fertilizer. Acrid smoke from burning black walnut wood. Sweat soaked overalls and overturned soil. The aroma of tractor exhaust and axle grease. A hint of carmelized brown sugar on charred meat. Slumberhouse has my deepest appreciation for facilitating this brief trip down memory lane. However, before buying, ask yourself--do I want to spend my hard-earned money on the fleeting luxury of smelling like wood smoke, dirt and sweaty overalls?

I was fortunate to sample this,before it was at this site,It is very nostalgic,very 1970s hippyish. Mood enhancing.
