- Try a sample first!
Did you ever wake up with the rain falling to a pitter patter outside your window? You rise to the cool morning air from your cabin in the forest. Fall is upon us - we feel the chill moving in. As rain begins to fade, petrichor entwines with green fougère notes, wet grounds and mossy woods. Silver metallic notes shine through with a peppery finish as you ease into your day of finding solace in nature’s bounty.
Notes of this fresh fougere include fresh citrus blend, rain, cyclamen, magnolia, fougère accents, guaiacwood, cedarwood, and musk.
