Launched in 95, when "Ski-Master" Willy Bogner's fragrances were looked after by Lancaster. The bottle was a rich translucent green, which was reminiscent of a forest.
Inspired by "Man's ancient, unbreakable and eternal bond with nature". The bond can't have been that unbreakable as the scent is now discontinued!

Latest Reviews of Deep Forest
I would argue that this predecessor to YSL Rive Gauche is actually superior, and while also discontinued and rare, comes at a somewhat more accessible price depending on where you look.
The opening briefly has a citrus and bergamot character that gives way to neroli and lavender after the first fifteen minutes. Then the major phase commences: rich forest leaves, a very light patchouli, great moss and a deep green atmosphere that is beautifully composed. It lacks the booziness of dunhill 30, and thus is a lighter and much more elegant scent. Masterfully composed, with good sillage and projection, after two hours it fades out into a pleasantly powdery note. Total longevity on my skin is about three hours. 4/5
The citrus opening is very brief. There are lovely mossy notes which appear quickly. The main element in this scent is a pleasant spice, mostly nutmeg. The character of the scent is robust but not macho, having a discreet 80's-90's vibe. For the most part, the spice is dry. As the scent progresses, it picks up some resinous notes from some sort of incense. The dry-down is a bit sweeter, as the musk kicks in.
Ultimately, this is a spice-musk scent. Brown in tone, not green. A vague allusion to forest through the moss. Pleasant, but not a Conehead's delight.
