Liz Zorn/Soivohle - Sage Leaf & Fir
I’m winding up my Soivohle survey with another blind buy, Sage Leaf & Fir. I can’t find much about this one: I’m guessing from the “LZ\OM Atelier” label that it’s c.2020. In any case, I figured sage and fir were right up my alley, so how unhappy could I be?
Alas, persistent apple and sweet fennel notes pull this from herbal/coniferous toward gourmand, which isn’t the house where I keeps muh wheels. It’s beautifully made, but not as much to my taste as I’d hoped. I think fans of Pineward would eat this up, if they could find a bottle. It’s distinctive enough that I’ll hold onto it for a bit in case my appreciation for this profile grows. But if I could swap it for a bottle of Meerschaum, I wouldn’t hesitate.
