The boldest and smokiest scent of the LVNEA collection, Feu Follet holds nothing back. Right out of the gate it gives you pine tar, burnt wood and charred leather. Resins of spruce and fir balsam round out the edges. Give it a moment and it will transition from bold to warm, smoothly folding over to a balsamic, leather, amber accord. What inspired the boldest in the collection, you ask? Here’s the inspiration:
Similar to that of the will-o'-the-wisp, the French 'Feu Follet' folktale tells of the apparition of a small, ghostly light or luminous flame which would reportedly haunt forests, swamps, and graveyards in order to lure wandering travelers to their untimely demise. Thought to be a manifestation of spirits either lost, condemned or malevolent, this phenomenon has been documented throughout history and has contributed to innumerable legends across the world.
It’s mysteriously dark, 100% natural and has killer sillage and longevity. Spray lightly.
Notes include pine tar, burnt wood, balsam resin, spruce resin and bark, leather, and amber.
