"The Vagabond Prince is an adventurer, a passionate explorer, a romantic dreamer. He stepped out of fairytales, you can find him in the folklore of every nation: the bravest character in a story, often foolhardy in the eyes of everyman, but still quick-witted enough to win. He travels, he fails, but he finds the strength for another fight, and he never relinquishes to anybody the mission of finding his happiness... He is a fabled symbol of human will for development. He is self-made."
 

Elena Knezhevich: The Vagabond Prince is our family adventure and a desirable gift from my husband, Zoran Knezevic, in the form of great encouragement to get started and his support as a friend and believer.

Zoran Knezevic: If you wish to realize something, you should simply start doing it! This works for everything, and it is a simple truth that helps us in our family life and business. So, we stopped dreaming about our own perfume and just started to do it.

We didn't want to put limits on the quality, we wanted to work with our favorite perfumer and to use natural ingredients that we already had a chance to smell. We are very grateful to Bertrand Duchaufour for his understanding and art. We were very lucky to share the affection for blackcurrant and forest smells with Bertrand, who has collaborated with Grasse producers to transfer the smell of blackcurrant from their fields to our perfume.

The Vagabond Prince is a new perfume house from California
The perfume is produced in France
Perfumer: Bertrand Duchafour
Bottle and box decorations, as well as all paintings by Elena Knezhevich

ACKNOWLEDGEMENT:

We are thankful to Francois Damide (Crafting Beauty, New York, USA) and David Malfray for their help and encouragement in realizing this project.

The Vagabond Prince has prepared 500 samples of the Enchanted Forest perfume (1.5 ml) to share with Fragrantica readers.

What a lovely perfume! The blackcurrent is amplified and rounded out with lovely orange and rose, and the drydown has a more "forested" quality as mentioned above. Simply beautiful.

Just received my sample today - it's wonderful! A really deep opening, but freshened by the blackberry leaf. This is bursting with juiciness and really evokes the feeling of a mysterious forest. Most blackberry perfumes I have tried become too sweet and sickly, but this is beautifully blended and edges on savoury notes with hints of sweetness: far more grown up. The Enchanted Forest is a fantastic perfume, I LOVE it (plus, the whole concept is very exciting). Well done to everyone involved!

Just got my sample in the mail and this scent is fantastic. It truly evokes an enchanted forest in Eastern Europe.....black current, pine, oak moss, amber, vanilla. Absolutely unique. The sillage is wonderful and it is fairly long-lasting. A woodsy oriental with a bit of sweetness in the top notes from the black current. Am looking forward to purchasing it.

I am stunned with positive energy that comes from you. Thank you. It is hard to step up and show your work... but with time I have learned that there is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.

From the other side... let me quote this:
“You will never be able to escape from your heart. So it's better to listen to what it has to say.”
― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist


Now when all is done we feel peace in heart and we are very grateful to all of you. You all are ancestors of this fragrance and without hard work of many people this would not be possible. This business is like alchemy. Bertrand Duchafour put some of his alchemy into this trying to make gold, that symbolize things of higher quality, from normal things you find in your surrounding. Elena started to grow pattern from one dot... like this universe once was like a grain of sand, that resulted in decor of the bottle and the box. There were many other people who were researching once, now producing materials we used... this chain goes long that we all realize that everything is connected to everything. Thanks to modern communications this job only becomes easier.

That's why we encourage everybody to do something they love to do it. When you love, you always strive to become better than you are. When you strive to become better than you are, everything around us becomes better too.

Aww... what a fantastic surprise. Congratulations, Zoka and Jeca. The name is like the title of a fairy tale, and the fact that you hired Duchaufour as the nose tells me how committed you are to producing a terrific fragrance. As black currant is somewhat of a signature note in his work, I can't wait to see what he did with it on a large scale. Best wishes for a tremendously successful launch.
