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… Continue reading | 5 Comments


April Aromatics Precious Woods EDP Natural Perfume Review

April Aromatics Precious Woods

When I first wore April Aromatics Precious Woods it reminded me of walking through a damp forest after a rainy season. This was before I read the inspiration of the fragrance. I was reminded of the rainforests of the PNW. It ends up that the perfume is inspired by damp, lush forests; however, these were the forests of India. I don’t know what those smell like but it’s easy to believe that it does smell like Precious Woods.

Precious Woods is a woodsy fragrance. It’s not accented by… Continue reading | 6 Comments

Juniper Ridge Siskiyou Cedar Soap Review

I’ve fallen hard for the Juniper Ridge line. This makes sense since I love woodsy and evergreen fragrances. And…Juniper Ridge is a West Coast brand with products scented from the lovely forests that we have here. Being that I split my free time between fragrance boutiques and the woods, it would make sense that I would love this brand.

Juniper Ridge Siskiyou Cedar is scented with Port Orford Cedar that grows in the Klamath Region. Port Orford Cedar is really unique because it smells like… Continue reading | 10 Comments


Smell Bent Halloween 2010 Lumberjack Werewolf EDT Fragrance Review

Lumberjack Werewolf is a limited edition fragrance featured in Smell Bent’s Attack of the Killer Smellies Collection for Halloween 2010. This collection features 4 spooky inspired scents that will only be available until November 1st.

Lumberjack Werewolf is well, awesome. It’s a bit strange but in a wearable strange way. My disclaimer is that I like skanky, animalic musk scents. For some reason I like to smell like a sweaty 70’s gigolo with at least 20 spritzes of perfume. At first spritz, I can’t really smell anything… Continue reading | 10 Comments


DSH Perfumes Viridian Perfume Review

DSH Perfumes Viridian

DSH Perfumes Viridian is a fresh, green fragrance that is in the Chroma Colors collection. It is described as “Organic. Sultry. Enchanted”. I have to agree.

The top of Viridian is dry and green. It reminds me of dry, cut grass. I love hay/grassy scents so I am loving the top to this. It is slightly spicy and green. Yep, just like celery seed. Even though the scent reminds me of dried grass and spicy celery seed, it manages to feel cool and crisp, fresh and… Continue reading | 2 Comments
