Wild Forest by Armand Basi is a manly, woody, spicy fragrance for men that was launched in 2013, and created by Nathalie Lorson. This one I reallly couldn’t wait to have…for my hubby of course. I thought the bottle was so unique to me and it reminded me of Canada. I also thought, despite of the smell, it would look really cool on our dresser. Low and behold, it smells like Wood! Created for the real men!
Top notes: Pepper, Nutmeg

The packaging, designed by Antoni Arola of Barcelona based Estudi Arola, features a glass bottle slotted into a square-shouldered solid block of wood, with a ‘window’ to view the level inside the bottle. The cap is square and also made of wood, while the outer card packaging is designed to look like wood.
