Lignum Vitae by Beaufort London


Fresh sweetish aromas of biscuits, cinnamon biscuits to be precise - I did not expect that, although it is the season for such frolics - Xmas time.  This is given a slightly salty undertone as if it was a biscuit kept on the beach exposed to the salty breezes.  Bondi Beach anyone? 




Later on I get a metallic touch, which mingles well with the earlier notes, as does some white smoke that is added in now.  In the base this is rounded of by a nonspecific woodsy background impression.  A light hint of a soft suede leather appears closer towards the end on me.




I get moderate sillage very good projection and nine hours of longevity on my skin.




This bright scent for cooler summer days uses evidently very synthetic notes that by themselves hare somewhat mundane, but in this combination they result in stretches of quite original aromas and smells that are enthusing in spite of their nigh-random arbitrariness of their recombination.  Christmas cookies on the sea shore?  Released 2016.  Overall 3/5
