                                   Enchanted Forest Eau de Parfum
                                         The Most Anticipated Fragrance of 2013

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.

Enchanted Forest is inspired by the endless sea of Russian forests and fairytales, as well as the most sensual ancient Slavic celebration named Kupala, rooted in the times of darkness, when all on the Earth knew its soul and its name (often too powerful to be uttered in vain or at all). French perfumer Bertrand Duchaufour, the famous creator of fragrances for L'Artisan Parfumeur, Comme des Garçons and Penhaligon's, built Enchanted Forest around black currant, the smell and taste of which are so beloved in Russia and many other countries where it grows.

 The box is lavishly decorated in golden hohloma tendrils, representing the enchanted forest. It embraces the deep blue sky with its curling branches. This sparkle from a shooting star and silhouettes of tiny night butterflies resting on its branches play little melodies on each side and easily fly into your imagination. Hohloma is so entertaining and doubtlessly magical that one twists and turns the box, caressing with fingers the different surfaces.

  The other story behind Enchanted Forest Eau de Parfum comes with inspiration and creation by the highly respected and highly viewed online perfume magazine, Fragrantica.  Fragrantica owners and couple Elena Knezhevich and Zoran Knezevic chose their favorite perfumer, Bertrand Duchaufour to create the fragrance using natural ingredients. This is a loving gift from Zoran to Elena which not only symbolizes a wonderful inspirational fragrance but also the love of two people.
  The incredible artwork for the bottle and the box decoration was painted by Elena.   
 

 The richness and dark notes for Enchanted Forest are as follows...

 Top Notes: pink pepper, aldehydes, sweet orange (traces), flower cassis, black currant leaf, hawthorn   effects of rum and wine, rosemary and davana.

 Heart Notes: black currant buds absolute (by LMR from Grasse), CO2 blackcurrant (by Floral Concept from Grasse), Russian coriander seed, honeysuckle, rose, carnation and vetiver.

 Base Notes: opoponax resinoid, Siam benzoin, amber, oakmoss, fir balsam absolute, Patchouli Purecoeur, castoreum absolute, cedar notes, vanilla and musk.

Enchanted Forest by The Vagabond Prince is coming January 2013!

The word "belles lettres" is a French phrase meaning "beautiful or "fine writing. Since this is a term to describe a category of writing, this will pertain to my passion about fragrances. I will review niche and natural perfumes from all over the world. I write with passion but will use my journalistic skills that I obtained in college. Not only will I feature fragrances but I will feature new books on fragrances/perfumes, fragrance events and interview authors and perfumers.


I hope you take this journey with me and begin your own passion for the ART OF PERFUMERY!
