'Arborist' is what first attracted me to the collection as I adore loamy scents. This is the forest floor, with lichen, Douglas Fir and spruce resin, but there are really pretty touches of quince and honey at the top that flow through scent like sunlight through a tree canopy. Truly bucolic with mugwort and burdock, this is the scent of a temperate isle in all its magnificence.
Impression: Quince, Honey, Saffron, Osmanthus Absolute, Magnolia, Burdock
Fade: Papyrus, Mugwort, Rose Absolute, Tuberose, Myrrh Absolute, Spruce Resin, Douglas Fir, Labdanum, Jatamansi, Malt, Lichen
Mr Mccall belongs to this school of thought. He is, by fragrance standards, an enfant terrible and his work for Jorum Studio is wildly unfettered, conjuring a plethora of naturalistic landscapes, both epic and distilled - he is, for me, an olfactory Turner with a twist!
