Hello.
Let me tell you about Enchanted Forest.

Enchanted Forest is a unique fragrance for several reasons. It is the only perfume I know of that is built around blackcurrant as the sole raw material, to such an extent that one can say it is a CASSIS. Another reason why we can speak of its uniqueness is the topic, this pagan festival that is the Kupala—a Slavic tradition that continues, more festive than other things at present, as a kind of homage to nature and the mysteries of the forest.

The challenge was great: I had to magnify the raw material (blackcurrant), a material used very often in perfumery and sometimes overused inelegantly through notes of red fruits, and in this regard I made a sort of soliflore. Soliflores are generally constructed on floral bases such as jasmine, rose, tuberose, but for Enchanted Forest the intention was quite different… and I had the idea of working the blackcurrant throughout the structure (head, heart, bottom) of the perfume. To do this, I used no less than a blackcurrant CO2 (an extract obtained directly from the blackcurrant buds, which is free of solvent residues), an absolute of blackcurrant and two different blackcurrant bases, including one of my own creation, to build a sort of skeleton, a vertical structure on which the entire perfume would be built.

My inspiration for this fragrance was primarily the fruit of blackcurrant itself, from which I drew most of the the strength of the fragrance. The blackcurrant is the MOST IMPORTANT fruity note of the range that exists in perfumery. There are more than 400 raw materials that come across as fruity in the perfumer's palette. Blackcurrant and the sulfur effects of blackcurrant are the basis for the reconstruction of almost all fruits that perfumers and flavorists know. It is HUGE! I worked through all the blackcurrant forms that exist except the natural fruit juice, jams and candies …. I have mingled the effects of orange and other red fruits for a more sophisticated aspect to this fruit. Wine and some alcohol-based spiced hot wine drinks also inspired me so much (mulled wine and grog: the typical French drinks that came down through the ages ... )


My second idea was to directly link the blackcurrant with the odor of a forest ... also a very interesting link because in blackcurrant there are hints of intense woody plants one can exploit. Blackcurrant has a facet of "grass porridge" (boiled herbs, like a soup!) that can work directly with herbaceous green notes, and even with aromatics that facilitate the construction of several woodland scents ...

I wanted to work the dark, mysterious, almost scary effects of the forest, all that evokes mysterie and, to man, seems almost supernatural in the forest: animals whose existence have been forgotten, the wetlands, the endless decomposition of rotting vegetation and its constant replenishing, the vital force of nature that man has hidden too deeply within himself …. This force, I evoke by the vibrant bone structure of a spicy woody chypre (patchouli, moss, vetiver, castoreum) but also by the warm, comfortable and intense effect of Balsam fir (pine needle absolute) that strengthens the woody notes and gives an evergreen aspect (i.e. the Russian taiga!) to any perfume.

I chose the balsam fir, because it symbolizes the quintessential Russian forest... I love the smell of the forest, and it was easy for me to link the earthy notes I love with these effects of pine and the dried pine needles covering the floor of an endless pine and fir land. It reminds me of my childhood, because I lived in one of the regions—Nancy, in the east of France—that is the most continental and greatly reminiscent of Russia. This is an area where we have some of the most beautiful forests in France!
 

Siberia, Russia

But neither have I forgotten the joyful pagan side of the festival, by giving—mainly in the top notes—sparkling effects of citrus and alcohol (wine, coriander seed, pink pepper and just a trace of orange) that mingle with discrete floral notes but feminize the heart of the fragrance, such as hawthorn, rose, a touch of jasmine, carnation ... just to offset everything else that could have made it a little too masculine. The whole composition oscillates between the dark masculine strength of the forest, the smooth, juicy and delicious blackcurrant and some soft flowers. The seduction which emanates from the bottom of the fragrance develops power with amber notes and very sophisticated musk.


Top notes:

pink pepper, aldehydes, sweet orange (traces), flower cassis,
blackcurrant leaf, hawthorn, effects of rum and wine, rosemary, davana.

Heart notes:

blackcurrant buds absolute (by LMR from Grasse), CO2 blackcurrant (by Floral Concept from Grasse), Russian coriander seed, honeysuckle, rose, carnation, vetiver

Base notes:

opoponax resinoid, Siam benzoin, amber, oakmoss, fir balsam absolute, Patchouli Purecoeur®, castoreum absolute, cedar notes, vanilla, musk

No sample, and I am oh so sorry as I tend to like the fresh scents that are clean just as much as I do my flowery and powdery scents. Sometimes you just want that crispness. Congrats to all who are basking in the frangrance of the forest...Guess I'll have to take a walk :)

It starts sweet on me and it seems like I get a oh-so-slight hint of mint in the background. There is something in the top that opens my sinuses up a bit. Looking at the listed top notes, I think it must be the rosemary. Quite bright and happy. I was worried it might be a bit too sticky sweet for me but the sweetness fades quickly and is actually a very enjoyable little jaunt. The rosemary sticks around for about 20 minutes and it is my favorite part of this fragrance.

After about 30 minutes I begin to get the deeper scents. On me, cedar tends to dominate and I am not a fan of the cedar fragrance. I can smell the cedar but in Enchanted Forest, it does not overpower everything else. I pick up the spicy carnation and the creamy warm basenotes. Amber, benzoin, balsam. The slight sweet of vanilla and still a touch of that unique rosemary every so often.

In my opinion it is more of a winter or evening fragrance. It is easy to close your eyes and imagine walking though a forest at night, guided along your path by the light of the moon.

This is a beauty of a fragrance. Not overly loud or aggressive. I feel very lucky to have found a sample of this little gem in my mailbox. This is a fragrance I will definitely want for my collection.

On a sad and cold day of winter I found in my mail box an enchanted forest. Surprise! A complete, complex, unique forest in such a tiny box. I was amazed by the lasting power of the dark, almost velvety black, fruits. It is not for everybody, this last creation by BeDu. But designed for a kind of dark "Red Riding Hood" in black leather boots. A grown-up girl that can't be deceived by the wolf anymore. Thanks "Maestro".

I got my sample in the mail, and when I tell you that this fragrance is magical...I'm not even doing it justice.

Its very peppery to start, but as time goes on it becomes this beautiful fragrance that I never want to wash off.

Personally, it makes me feel like a woodland Queen that lives amongst the most amazing ethereal backdrop. While my husband tells me it's a complexity that fits me perfectly, and he hopes it become a signature fragrance of mine.

No worries, hubby. It definitely will be.

Now, if I could only purchase it in store...

This is a very intriguing fragrance. My first feeling was being in the woods. The fir tree note came out very early on me. I have never been a big fan of the piny Polo smell but that is not what is present In this fragrance. This is such a real evergreen green smell. It reminded me of walking around our ranch here in Texas right before the sun goes down. After a bit the black current comes to the front. To me, it was almost like biting in to one and tasting the juice in your mouth. There is a very dark, almost erotic quality to this fragrance. It sweet, dirty, woody quality to it.

It started out woodsy and a lil fruity, a kinda of sexy sweetness that i felt maybe would be sexy on my man, the dry down became even more woodsy and my boyfriend says " wow babe that smells really good" lol, and it does... it smells exactly as an enchanted forest might smell. I really like it and its odd for me because i never really go with these sort of smells, im more oriental in my taste, but as a perfume connoisseur it is simply a must have for any collector!

Sensational! Enchanted Forest is worthy of being mentioned in the same breath as Bertrand Duchaufour's other great earthy fragrance, Timbuktu. I hope a sample of this finds its way to Katie Puckrik because her YouTube review could bring it to the attention of the wide, appreciative audience Enchanted Forest deserves.

I am totally excited, anticipating the debut of The Enchanted Forest. I cannot express how beautiful it sounds in description.

I have spent my life walking the forests of the Adirondacks and the Laurentian Mountains, although we were brought up as children living close by the Atlantic ocean.

The mystery of the forest is a profound part of my soul.

As for Cassis, or black currant...this is elemental to nature. It has force and power.

This combination, with all of its notes and accents sounds mindblowingly sensual and exquisite to me.
I have been looking for a new perfume for a long time. Will this be it? jeannieby

This sounds as if it were made for the Colorado Rocky Mountains, or perhaps for hidden away places in Norway and Sweden.
The berries ripen to their fullest in early September, and, if you stay ahead of the bears, you may pick all you want. A scent to carry you through the seasons of no currants.

Came late to this, but I must say, I am intrigued. Normally, blackcurrant brings to mind the sickly sweet scents of Ribena and jams. The Jo Malone's interpretation of blackcurrant smelt like garlic on my skin, so I'm hoping that this is the magic. That this is MY perfume.

Am looking forward to winning a sample in the post.

I am trying to find a new "signature scent" after my mother spilled the last of my precious Tentations. (Paloma Picasso, and the little vial containing the pure perfume.)
I adore the scent of blackcurrants but in fragrance they always seem to be buried or mixed in an overly sweet "cupcake" scent.
I am very keen on fragrances with deep woody notes. The type of woodland that always stays cool, even on the hottest days, where the earth is always rich and damp, where ferns and mushrooms bloom.
However, there is one thing that I loved most about my Tentations, which I have yet to find. The spicy citrus and mulled wine notes that are like an olfactory hug.

Enchanted Forest sounds like it was created specifically for me. If I could have a bespoke perfume, I imagine it would smell like this. I may not win a sample but I can't wait to read everybody's reviews.

The box really looks wonderful and enchanted :) However it reminds me more the winter time closer to pagan Kolyada rather than Kupala.
Even if I don't win the sample, I will order it from US as soon as it is available because I feel like I will love it! Awaiting it eagerly! :)

Black currants are delicious. I recently purchased some japanese incense in black currant that were delectable. I am very intrigued by the notes in this composition. It sounds right up my ally as I enjoy deep, complex fragrances. Many of the perfumes I own are created by one individual who blends french and arabian perfumery. I hope I win, this scent sounds exactly like something I would purchase.

The artistry of how this fragrance was composed and how well Bertrand Duchaufour the
perfumer describes his process and inspirations, is a great example of the deeply rich art form that is perfumery -- both past & present.
Bertand's artist's rationale not only inspires people to want to try the Enchanted Forest range, but also can invoke the person in the street to become a passionate connoisseur of fragrances.
I believe the black current is the most incredibly eclectic star of the fruit fragrances & would love to experience this composition of Duchaufour's very much.

These notes are amazing and the bottle is so gorgeous! I'm a huge lover of black currant since I was a little girl. We have many black currant bushes in my grandmother's garden and when I was little I never could wait them to get riped and I was just hung around the bushes and eat the unripe fruits so my mom had to look after me all the time. :) Then my grandmother prepared jam from black currant and I loved it so much, she put it on bread, sliced it up and arranged them on the plate like little soldiers (as she called them)...this fragrance would bring me back so many nice memories :)

How exciting! I am dying for a new fragrance that is different, interesting and mysterious!

I completely agree with the perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour about blackcurrant being "overused inelegantly" ... I personally feel that blackcurrant's often used in such a way that that there seems to be no notes whatsoever and all you are left with is a flat, sickly sweet smell similar to blackcurrant cough medicine.

The process of how the blackcurrant is extracted and then becoming one with the balsam fir as the forest, then a touch of such beautiful flowers....

The packaging looks elegant, classic but at the same time mysterious and majestic.

How can I not want to try this intriguing fragrance called the Enchanted Forest!

This sounds amazingly beautiful- and has so many of my favourite notes listed in it! I am certain I am going to adore it! The bottle is really lovely as well. Thanks for giving me a heads-up. If I don't get lucky in the drawing, I will be checking the fragrance counters for a sample- if they get any.

Very curious of how masculine/feminine it would be since it's a unisex. Have my hopes up though.

"The woods are lovely
dark and deep..."R.Frost.
The juice sounds like a path breaker and the discription brings a lot of mysticism to mind.
The bottle is stunning, but I hope it offers some transparency. And I hope I get a sample ;)

Cassis and balsam fir, that 's a new combine. I wonder if this one is a unisex or a really sweet feminin one.
looking forward to try this one out. Nice bottle and package too. Tumbs up for this one.

This sounds and looks amazing, and I am pretty sure it does sound amazing as well! Being of Slavic descent and enchanted by those magical pagan traditions (Slavic and Nordic), I find this all the more exciting. Wonderfully done!

So is this made with real dead beaver parts, or synthetic castoreum? UPDATE: Apparently no beavers were harmed for your scenting enjoyment! Yay!

BD compositions have tended not to work for me...but a perfume centered on blackcurrant?! I need to at least try it. I rarely get excited about new releases these days but I am just taken by the write up of the focus on this note!
