A tree stands before you in the dappled sunlight. Fluttering birch tree leaves, forest green grass, and pine needles provide the greenness of the forest, while pine, iso e super, cedar, and sandalwood depict the weathered wood, and clary sage, clearwood, and vetiver ground the tree roots. Inspired by Martin Buber's philosophical contemplation of I-Thou relations. [Vegan.]

Inspired by Martin Buber's philosophical contemplation of I-Thou relations, this is a tribute to his tree:
"A rigid pillar in a flood of light, or splashes of green traversed by the gentleness of the blue silver ground.... The flowing veins around the sturdy, striving core, the sucking of the roots, the breathing of the leaves, the infinite commerce with earth and air–and the growing itself in its darkness.... Throughout all of this the tree remains my object and has its place and its time span, its kind and condition.
But it can also happen, if will and grace are joined, that as I contemplate the tree I am drawn into a relation, and the tree ceases to be an It. The power of exclusiveness has seized me."
Our artisan fragrance products, such as this eau de parfum, are final sale and not eligible for returns. If you aren't sure about a full size, we recommend trying a sample!
When your perfume arrives, don't smell it straight out of the bottle! Perfume is meant to bloom as you wear it, and not all of the scent notes will be smellable out of the bottle.
Always patch test by applying the perfume to a small patch of skin, like your wrist or the back of your hand. If there are any signs of irritation, discontinue use and wash off the perfume.
To get the best performance out of your scent, we suggest applying to your pulse points (wrists, neck, inside of elbows, behind the ears, behind the knees) on moisturized skin.
Breathe in deeply to smell your new fragrance, and enjoy the atmosphere it creates!

I have gotten a couple other perfumes from Osmofolia, but this is by far my favorite scent. It has such a fresh, green scent that makes me feel like I’m up in the mountains all the time. The eau de parfum also has incredible lasting power, and easily lasted over 12 hours on my skin. Absolutely love everything about it!
