Pine, moss, touch of Dorian. This one is a very pine forward blend - but not Christmassy. More like a pine forest in an early fall morning. Cool, crisp, piney and sunshiney. Good throw and wear length.

Whoa, that's some pine! I get tons of pine and bergamot at first, with the bergamot becoming more prominent with wear, and a bit of Dorian in the background. Then the moss emerges and ends up being the dominant note on me after a few hours of wear. I didn't get much lavender from this, sadly, and not as much Dorian as I was hoping for.

 

I am going to let this rest and re-test it before it goes away. I think it's nice, but I would like more Dorian and lavender from it.

Favorite of the Lilith's this year. Pine and lavender! I do get Dorian and bergamot, but very much in the background. It reminds me of The Wolves Howled, the Ravens Screamed, but more welcoming and brighter.

So I do not like masculine as a term for scents, but the pine makes this smell like a “more” masculine Dorian spiked with a touch of extra lavender. So pine, Dorian and some small lavender. I do not get the bergamot at all strangely. 
I cannot decide if I like this or not. Strange scent, definitely unique.

In the imp: pine and moss, and sparkling mountain air.

 

Wet: bergamot, layered over a forest of pine, blanketed in lavender clouds

 

Dry: the lavender really billows in the drydown, alongside a little hit of sugar from Dorian. However, the predominant scent is fresh pine, lifted by the tang from the bergamot. The scent proper lasts around 6-8 hours, but the lemony and pine after-notes linger on a bit further. The throw is medium, provided you apply liberally; the effect is very similar to most of the pine-base blends.

 

Stars: ★★★★

Wet: What a fresh scent! Pine, moss, bergamot and lavender. This reminds me of being in a forest, surrounded by pine trees. Totally evocative.

 

Dry: The pine has faded, but you can still smell it a bit. The bergamot is still going strong, and I would still characterize this as a very "fresh" pine forest scent. 

 

Holding on to my decant!

At first this is pure Christmas tree pine, sweet with that mentholated air like cold wind. I forgot what the rest of the notes were when testing so I was interested to see it develop. It got a bit warmer and muskier, and the sweetness shifted to a different kind, more distinctly vanilla. After it dries I get a pretty recognisably Dorian base, very heavy on the vanilla tea. The moss and pine have faded back but not disappeared but have added a really cool balsamic note to the Dorian. It's hard to describe how well they blend, but it really works. This is one of my all time favorites from the Liliths.
