Oak bark, tree sap, wild acorns, and a touch of honey.



The century oak, rugged and gaunt,
Holds high to-day, as he was wont
A hundred years ago, his head,
Hoary with snows that have vanished,
Defiant and grim to the wind’s wild taunt.

The hooting owl finds here a haunt,

And feathered choristers now chaunt

As when the century’s dawn made red

The century oak.


No season’s coil his heart can daunt;

Processive years their changes vaunt,

But, constant till the line have fled

And mouldered in oblivion’s bed,

He holds his own, rugged and gaunt, –

The century oak.

– Harvey Carson Grumbine

I am super pleased with this one. Both oak and honey can be big notes, but they are very nicely balanced here. The strength of a big strong oak and the comfort of warm sweet honey combine into a fortifying hug of a scent that sticks with you all day. I do get a bit of nutty acorn but I'm not sure I can pick out the sap yet.
