Pineward Perfumes is a niche perfume brand. The project originated in the United States and so far more than 20 fragrance compositions have been created.
Pineward perfumes capture abandoned alpine farmsteads, boreal bracken and briars, frost-laden and fog-blanketed firs, loam-covered logs, prickles of pine, thickly thicketed thistles, rotting rooted carpets, morel mushroom mycelium, sap encrusted spruces, misty, murky, mossy, forests up in a stoppered bottle. My hope is that wearing Pineward perfume will transport you to remote untamed forests far, far, past the reaches of civilization and into primeval black woods of fantasy.
Chandlery is a lavender and warm composition with ingredients such as: lavender, beeswax, champaca, anise, vetiver, tuberose, deerstongue, vanilla, cinnamon, jasmine, sandalwood and cloves. The opening of the fragrance is a warm and pleasant blend of lavender, beeswax and vanilla. The smell is incredibly cozy, which makes me feel as if I am surrounded by dozens of candles that warm the senses with their aromas. In the next stage, the fragrance becomes slightly smoky and aromatic. You can feel anise, cinnamon and cloves. It is an incredibly intense composition that is downright addictive.
Treacle is a strong tobacco composition with lots of honey and the sweetness of raisins. This very distinctive fragrance took me longer to test, because I wanted to make sure I understood completely how it was composed. A very important ingredient here is molasses, i.e. a sweet and thick syrup, which creates a perfect base for such aromatic notes as tobacco and Lapsang Souchong Tea. It is a wonderful, warm, smoky scent reminiscent of a fire lit in the middle of the forest. The aromas mix here in a sublime way, which is why creating such a composition must have taken the creator a lot of time.
Steading – I saved the best for last. My favorite of all three smells of tobacco and hay. It is an incredibly woody-green composition with a hint of peat and maple and a mass of forest combined with aromatic fragrances. Initially, the composition is slightly dry. After a few minutes, there are notes of beeswax. In the next stage, we get a slightly bitter and forest hint of hops and pine needles, whereas all this rests on a deep tobacco note. The fragrances by Pineward Perfumes are not easy to pick up and I definitely want them to be
enjoyed by confident buyers of niche perfumes. I love this brand very much and I consider the atmosphere they create to be one of the best on the market. I am in need of more of this forest and dark world!
