Homebrew: Perfume – “Pine Forest”

TYPE: PERFUME
HERBS: CEDAR, SPRUCE, CLOVE, BALSAM FIR, BERGAMOT.
USES: PERFUME, AROMATHERAPY.

This fragrance is a part of the third batch I made.

It’s a full-bodied scent that smells both earthy and refreshing – I’ve found that when I apply it to my pulse points, it evokes a cozy, calming feeling.

For me it recalls memories of late nights spent by campfires in a conifer grove.

The clove and cedar are comforting and warm, while the bergamot and spruce act to brighten and balance the scent by adding a refreshing element.

I think I’ll play with the mixture ratios in the future – the clove was a bitter more potent than I anticipated.

This is a fragrance I think may be better suited to colder weather, but overall I found it to be successful and will revisit it.
