img_0157-e1538398698690.jpg

The cold months are coming and for me that means candles and diffusers to make my home a cosy place, and a powerful and delicate fragrance that would persist on my skin. That’s why I tried few items from Björk & Berries, a swedish luxury and ecological brand.

I tried their latest collection: White Forest,  a sensual and melodramatic perfume of wood and fresh forest air, an exciting and mysterious scent of the deep Swedish forest that includes birch and pine. White Forest comes in a range of unisex perfume, body care and home products with natural and organic ingredients of the highest quality. The skin care products are based on organic birch extract that makes the skin toned, soft, firm and elastic.

Björk & Berries’ aim is to simultaneously promote a sustainable environment and high quality by using hand-picked, natural and organic ingredients with beneficial documented results. It supports local experts and aims to collaborate with them to develop the most effective products as well as to make sure to participate and support research connecting to the chain of sustainability, reduced waste and to take care of the surrounding nature given to us.
The product range includes skin care, perfumes, body and bath products, hand care and hair care. All products are natural and organic, refined and developed in laboratories and produced in modern factories according to a Ecoluxury Criteria:

• Natural ingredients, 95–100%
• Certified organic ingredients, 10–75%

After this little introduction I will talk about 3 products I have been using, 1 personal perfume and 2 home products.

WHITE FOREST PERFUME OIL

A lovely, concentrated perfume oil in a handy roll-on applicator that provides a sensual, fresh scent of the forest. A mysterious, intriguing scent from the depths of the Swedish forests that include both birch and pine. This one is on my bag and is travel friendly (size: 10ml) I prefer to have something like this for traveling as it’s easier than carry a whole bottle and perfume vials tend to lose all their content because of the pressure.

  • 83% natural ingredients.
  • 75% organic ingredients.

NOTES

  • Top Notes: Orange, Rhubarb, Blackcurrant
  • Heart Notes: Birch, Balsam Fir, Pink Freesia, Violet
  • Base Notes: Vetiver, Cedarwood, Tonka Bean

White Forest is a floral woody musk, this unisex fragrance is a true white scent not to say a master piece as I haven’t tried anything similar before and probably one of the reasons why is ranked almost 5 stars by all the perfumers reviews. WARNING is highly addictive, sweet enough to stay in the skin for several hours without becoming nauseous. the nose behind White Forest is Jerome Epinette who already did a fantastic job for different niche and exclusive fragrance brands like Byredo and Atelier Cologne. Clearly this perfume has a it’s own identity and would suit perfectly for any person who is looking for something more exclusive and diferent of the rest of the current fragrance market.

I love to place diffusers at the entrance of my house and in the living room, have to be careful with which fragrance I choose as Christopher has a sensitive nose and to be honest be could be hateful sometimes , so it was a big surprise when he said “I like these products around the house”. The sillage in the air is moderate not those that don’t smell of anything or the ones that could give you a headache after few minutes in the room. Sweet, fresh, delicate that changes your mood once you walk into a room, if you want a delicate diffuser that would smell luxurious and last long, this one is truly recommended. Size: 100 ml
