When designing Boreal, I was initially inspired by Canadian boreal region which includes woodlands, deep forests, tundra, lakes and rivers. This unique fragrance captures the essence of the north perfectly.
This perfect blend of jack pine, balsam, white spruce and eastern white cedar now takes me back to being a kid and those memories of hopping in the old farm truck (that ol' F250 long box diesel that'd fishtail around without any weight in the box) and heading down out on the hunt for the perfect Christmas tree.
It was always a family adventure. My Mom bundling us up in our heaviest winter gear, a thermos of hot chocolate, an axe and the chainsaw in the box of the truck. We'd head up north into the woods, looking out as we drove along to find the perfect tree.
My Mom would always be the one to spot THE tree. "That's it. No, not that one, that one over there - the one up high with no boughs for the first seven feet, but the nice top." Into the snow we'd go, excited to give whatever we'd found - be it something big and grand, lush and full or a little misshapen, but full and character, still deserving of attention and love.
Green and full of life, let this fragrance help bring up memories of favourite trees past.
