A Wonderful Wander

'As soon as the snow was melted but the soil still frozen, we took a walk into the forest where we heard the first larks chirp; we did this always. With expectation we looked forward to father's birthday on April 22. To prepare for this, far ahead of time, we gathered moss, ivy, forest violets, crowfoot and anemones; the day before we wreathed everything in the house. And so the beautiful spring began for all of us.' -Memoir of Emma Blocki (1872) Blocki Perfumes gracefully blend a timeless classic structure, exceptional naturals, and vibrant modern notes: For Walks is an earthy forest violet wreathed in cool spring greens. Violet leaf is a piquant, restless character at the outset of this fragrance, a perfect partner for mint, which gleams with mischievous, green sweetness. Fir needle is a cool, composed injection of bittersweet energy, that grounds these first notes and keeps the top of this fragrance from growing too acidic. After this balanced, and self-referential opening, violet is so gallantly introduced it exudes all of its multi-faceted dynamism. Simultaneously sugared, tart, and slightly spicy this purple bloom is perfectly supported by the herbal, evergreen boronia. Orris amplifies the more glamorous side of violet, reiterating the romantic, pastille history of this flower. Just as orris creates the possibility of an old school floral, vetiver swoops in and leavens this thickening fragrance with its scintillating, earthy spice. Sandalwood and cedar contribute to this lightweight, modern finish; sandalwood imparts a searing, bright green powder that grounds For Walks while making it effortless to wear. Cedarwood engineers a wistfully gauzy, fugitive incarnation of For Walks that feels romantic and mysterious, and delightfully fleeting, even as it ensures its lasting power on skin. A thoughtful, tantalizing yet understated, elegant presence on skin, For Walks ensures you'll never feel lonely as you wander. Packaged in a classic glass bottle topped with a gorgeous etched cap, and presented in an elegant box featuring the quote from Emma Blocki that inspired the fragrance. (violet leaf, mint, fir needle, violet & boronia flower, orris, vetiver, sandalwood, cedar)
