Not unlike the namesake, this soap is enigmatic. A walk through the woods, a few flowers out in tables at a party, a masculine scent like moss and musk... which is this? It's all of them, and they blend together into something almost indescribable. It starts out musky and mossy, all earth and dark places, with a hint of the forest, and just enough lavender and hyacinth to keep it from being overtly woodsy.
The base of this soap has a creamy, custard color to it; but some fragrances - especially those containing vanilla - can cause the soap to darken to a tan or even a dark brown. I try to wait until this begins to happen to photograph the soap so that you are aware of what you are getting; however, it does get darker over time so your soap, upon arrival, may be darker than photographed.
