Arborist immediately captivates us with an accord that seems somewhere between a deliciously salty Kalamata olive and an oud that presents animalic qualities. Blurred images of grimy leather work boots, dark forest, musty logs and rich soil flutter through our minds. As we walk through the expansive thickness of the forest, we begin to see light pushing its way into the darkness, and we realize we are approaching the forest's edge.
Now there is a bit of sunshine on the tree trunks, with pretty green lichen climbing and furling about. At certain moments, we think we catch honey, fruit, roses and magnolia, but they are fleeting, and we can never be sure. It seems as though they serve to bring that bit of light and optimism into the dark woods. Arborist is a little gem for any woody fragrance lover, and we understand it's an ode to the Scottish woodlands in particular.
