Sonoma Scent Studio Forest Walk EDP Perfume Review

Sonoma Scent Studio Forest Walk

Sonoma Scent Studio Forest Walk is a perfume inspired by summer walks through the woods of Northern California. I get that from Forest Walk except I think it smells prettier than the forests.

Violets carpet the edge of the forest – damp, reminiscent of freshly sliced cucumbers and faintly floral. Follow the trail and you’ll smell dried, warm cedar, fir and oak bark. Fir needles carpet the path and you can smell the faint aroma of close-to-the-ground mushrooms. Forest Walk is a walk in the forest. With time I pick up on more jasmine, creamy sandalwood and smooth patchouli. Forest Walk becomes more of a perfume than a place. It’s like expensive french perfume meets the forest.

Notes listed include sandalwood, oak, fir, hemlock, cedar, moss, jasmine, violet, amber and benzoin. Launch date 2012 PERFUMER – Laurie Erikson

Give Forest Walk a try if you like woodsy floral fragrances. Or perfumes like Ormonde Jayne Woman, Caron Nuit de Noel, Costume National Scent, and/or Serge Lutens Fille en Aiguilles. Forest Walk is unisex. I’ve noticed that in cold weather it wears more woodsy and incense-ish. In warmer weather, it wears more woodsy floral.

Forest Walk has average projection and longevity.

Forest Walk comes in a few sizes with prices ranging from $21 (travel) – $105 at Sonoma Scent Studio. 

Victoria’s Final EauPINIONA walk through a summer forest wearing your finest French perfume. I like it. It’s really one to try if you like Ormonde Jayne Woman.

  1. I keep forgetting that I want some of this. I think it actually smells better than Ormonde Woman, with the same longevity and sillage (at least on my skin). And the price point is much more preferable.

    • It smells much, much better on my skin than OJ Woman. But, that’s me. It has the “darkness” and woodiness of OJ that I like without the bitterness.

  2. I wish SSS had also EdT or even EdC concentrations: there are several scents that I’d prefer to use less concentrated, Forest Walk included. And I want candles! :)
