Most scents with the word “rainforest” in them are perfumed, abstract watercolors, an imaginary idea of a light, peaceful, green-ish rainforest. But perfumer Ellen Covey has never been one to shy away from the scented reality of things. Based on the misty rainforests of the Pacific Northwest, it’s as if an entire forest trail was wholly captured within glass, awaiting your visit. Wet, leafy soils cradle miles of dense cedarwood, along with every step along your path. All around, are the beginnings of decay, and simultaneous, verdant rebirths flourishing out the never-ending, nourishing mist. The greens are glowing, the woods envelop your nostrils, the moist soil is nurturing. This is a potent, yet magical, scent that will instantly pull you out of any room you’re in, and drop you right in the middle of a safari.
Notes include cedar leaves, green sword ferns, rhododendron, forest mushrooms, beebalm, myrtle, wildflowers, oakmoss, black spruce, balsam fir, port orford cedar and earthy accord.
