The name "Awake" is spot-on, as it begins with a bracing, mentholated note that smells as though you are inhaling the crisp, foggy, gray air of the Russian taiga. Similar to an olfactive splash of cold water on the face. Decidedly woody in the beginning, the woods slowly retreat as the fragrance eases into a smooth blend of amber and musk that casts a warm, lasting glow on the skin.
From the perfumer: In summer NŌSE often joins his friends to pick wild berries in the forest. They leave at sunrise to get home before it gets too hot. In the early hours it is fresh and fragrant in the forest between the trees. It smells of damp foliage and resins. While they collect a basket of berries, their mouths already have their taste. At home the berries long exude the pleasant scent of the forest, which you breathe until the end of the day, remembering the unforgettable morning.
