Hi everyone! Today we’ll be looking at one of the first Solstice Scents’ perfumes I’ve owned, Foxcroft. It’s also quite possibly my first atmospheric perfume.
Solstice Scents Foxcroft – the Review
Decaying leaves, rich black soil, dry leaves, fall air, woods, chimney smoke.
Foxcroft is autumn and winter combined in a single perfume bottle. As soon as I apply it, I get the image of prodding at a leaf pile with a wooden stick. The scent is damp, not dry but also not drenching wet, and in terms of colour, it’s going from lush green to dark brown.
I’ve tried some other leafy perfumes that turned out to be more like men’s cologne but Foxcroft is not one of them. It’s the most realistic forest scent that I own. As one of my colleagues put it, it smells like the forest when you go mushroom picking. Here I’d like to add that Foxcroft does not smell mushroom-y but more like moist soil underneath layers and layers of leaves.
I’d say this is a unisex perfume, pretty much anyone can wear it as long as they like realistic or atmospheric scents. Is it office-friendly? I’d say it isn’t, not really, but that also depends on the type of environment you work in. My colleagues don’t seem to mind it but I prefer to wear more conventional perfumes around them.
You can buy Solstice Scents Foxcroft here for $17 USD.
