In the fashion of German shaving soaps, Thuringian Forest has a very complex and manly scent profile. It starts off with top notes of Bergamot, Lemon, Clary Sage, Aldehydes and Juniper, bolstered by middle notes of Geranium, Lavender, Orange Blossom, Clove, Nutmeg, Pimento and Red Oak. All of those exquisite scents build upon the earthy base notes of Cedarwood, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Musk and Coffee. When combined, they intermingle into an amazingly complex men's cologne fragrance that is deep, warm and woody. You'll look forward to it each time it comes up in your rotation.
