Black Forest-Solstice Scents

Happy Valentines Day!
It doesn’t matter if you are not in love or if you don’t want to be with someone. To me this day is all about love! Love to your parents, friends, pets, yourself! It’s just the perfect reason to celebrate, eat chocolate, wear something red and your favorite Valentine inspired perfume!

Today, I am going to wear the same perfume as last year:  Black Forest from Solstice Scents! Before I tried this perfume I could swear that I hated cherrynotes! Even today they remind me a cough syrup. I got a sample of this and from first sniff I was in Love!  Angela did her magic again!

The picture is from a Black forest that I made last year. Today, my boyfriend isn’t so lucky as I didn’t had time to make one. I just bought us handmade white chocolate bars with cranberry!! Yum!


PERFUME: :  Black Forest

COMPANY: Solstice Scents

AVAILABILITY: They made this permanent!

OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION: Agarwood, Nagarmotha EO, Tobacco Absolute, Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate, Cocoa Absolute, Maraschino Cherries, Black Cherries, Hay Absolute, Sandalwood EO, Whipped Cream & a drop of Pink Peppercorn Essential Oil


FROM THE DECANT/BOTTLE: Cherry liquor and cocoa. Addictively good.

WET ON SKIN:  Cocoa absolute with milk chocolate. The cherry is prominent but like I said it remind me cherry liquor. The woodiness from the agarwood and Nagarmotha goes exceptionally well with the cherries and chocolate notes.  You can tell that she used high quality ingredients in this perfume. Some chocolate fragrances, they just don’t feel right and the dry to something like vanilla but not this one!
 In this scent all the elements are blended together very well to make an awesome blend.

DRY DOWN: I can smell this for hours when I wear it. I get chocolate and tobacco whiffs now and then and I really enjoy it!

  1. What a perfect Valentines Day scent! I don't usually go for fruit or foody scents- but there are enough different elements in this scent that I think I'd enjoy it! Especially with the tobacco and agarwood!

    I totally agree with you about what Valentines Day is really about! I hope you have a wonderful day!

    That black forest cake you made looks absolutely delicious! I bet your boyfriend loved it. Baking and cooking definitely takes a lot of time, but that was so sweet of you to buy handmade chocolate for you two!

  2. Yep, It's a very nice scent! My boyfriend asked if if I was wearing an oudh perfume so it isn't entirely foodie nor frootie!

    Thank you for the compliment about my cake! It was delicious. I have to make this again in the near future. It does need at least 3 hours preparation and baking but it's worth it!

    1. I think I will choose this perfume as my sample next time I order from SS! I am so curious about it now!

      I'm not surprised because your cake LOOKS so delicious! That is a lot of preparation and baking time! I bet it was worth it though! It makes me hungry just looking at it, haha!

  3. If this had stopped at cocoa, milk and cherries I would probably avoid it, but I love agarwood so I´ll try it anyway!

  4. I just did an order of the Valentine scents from SS and chose a sample of Black Forest as my freebie after you talked about it (I think it was you?) in a comment on my blog. I'm looking forward to trying it out - it sounds like just my kind of thing.

    Also, now I want cake.
