  1. I really love the smell of Palo Santo. My only complaint with it, in anything, is that it's never as strong as I want it to be. Overall Heartwood is more subtle on my skin, it's something that you'll want to lean in closer to catch a whiff of. My skin as usual, amps the sweeter notes and aspects of this. The Palo Santo, cedar, sandalwood, and vanilla linger and overtake the other notes. I regret not putting in for a full bottle on my last order. Heartwood will also smell amazing on a man.

  2. I will need to revisit this one after it has recovered from its jet lag. I didn't give it a full week as I love pipe tobacco. (To the point that I tried to pick up pipe smoking at the age of 13. Actual smoking vs the smell was a completely different and disappointing experience. ☠😆)

     My skin really elevated the maple note. To be fair it is a pleasant & enjoyable note, but the tobacco kept floating as the faintest hint in the background. Just teasing my nose...like a withholding little scent tease. I suspect that this is due to travel shock and will give Sweet Leaf a fair shot in a couple days and update my review.

  3.  Yeah, @johnsonlisa90012you could def layer some Pure Sugar with this to sweeten it.

    I needed a full bottle of this as well. My nose picked up a very expensive men's eau du parfum vibe upon first sniff. Ambre Fox is def a bargain at $25. 

    Back to the scent, my sample was still jet lagged from it's travels but I could not stop sniffing my arm. My skin tends to sweeten most scents up. (Must be my natural skin chemistry.) So I'm not getting the dryer vibe that others are. My nose wants to interpret the oud+citrus+saffron as a slight tobacco element for some reason, but like the slightest whisper of tobacco? Idk. The play between cedar, citrus, & amber kept drawing my nose as I tested my sample. Even though the vibe is of an expensive men's cologne that would cause me to violate a man wearing this' personal space; it somehow works very well as a women's scent too. Ambre Fox is going to age like Cher, so I'm thinking I probably need to get a back up bottle.

    When the wind blows high

    and there is a certain scent upon the air

    I know it is my true love calling

    from within the wood

    where they have changed him.

    He promised me treasures fair

    yet never returned

    I fear he is spelled by those who dwell therein

    the spirits fair, their powers vast

    have claimed his soul and transformed him.

    His sweetness calls to me from so far away

    and I can only hope those who keep him now

    know the depths of his whole heart

  18. AD-Lantern_540x.jpg?v=1633323990

    When they hold their lanterns high

    those sprites out wandering within deepest night

    you may find yourself so tempted

    to follow where they will.

    They promise all the dainties and warmth

    for you have come so far and it is very cold

    longing for a hearthfire and comfort.

    See the light? The way it which it seems to sway and bob

    briefly within sight

    beckoning, and forward you may go.

    But have a care, for who indeed would be out upon a night such as this?

    And do they know

    that perhaps it is not you who should fear the sight of a stranger

    as you move ever closer

    to meet them.

    The fairies of the forest night

    rely on full moon’s shine

    call forth the fireflies

    to light their way.

    They pull shadows about themselves

    to walk the darkness deep

    when mortals lie asleep

    they travel the nocturnal realm.

    Wild cries of creature calls

    across the darkening sky

    through the crisp clear air

    acknowledge the power of the twilight world

    wherein the fairies dwell.

    If you venture forth in dusk to seek

    the secret of the fairies’ domain

    keep to paths trod by those

    whose jeweled eyes observe keenly

    as you pass before their glittering winged forms.
