Fragrance notes: Silver birch and red currant

Baba Yaga is one of the most popular characters of Slavic folklore. In many tales she is represented as an old crone who lives in the woods in a moving hut standing on chicken legs. The hut is surrounded by the skulls of her victims impaled on pikes. She's got long, sharp teeth made of iron and a grotesque nose. She flies through the woods in a mortar and uses a pestle as an oar. She sweeps away any tracks of her presence with a broom. Baba Yaga is an ambiguous folklore character in that her personality is multi-faceted in stories. She is often seen as a villain luring victims to doom by tricking them and sometimes eating them, especially if they happen to be children found wandering the woods (a cautionary tale for children not to wander). However, she can also be a helpful guide in epic tales in which she helps direct the hero of the story to their destination. Baba Yaga appears in two of the most famous Russian fairytales Vasilissa the Beautiful and the Death of Koschei the Deathless that depict her as both horrible and helpful.

Our fragrance Baba Yaga is inspired by one of the greatest folklore characters of all time. She appears in thousands of tales throughout the Slavic speaking world. In stories and art depictions Baba Yaga frequently abodes in a silver birch forest. The wonderful scent of a Russian birch forest creates the base for this fragrance. The woody and fresh aroma is blended with a touch of vibrant red currant- of which Russia is a top producer- making the fragrance a tribute to the smells of the region. This fragrance will transport you into Baba Yaga's forest to celebrate the most fascinating and frightening woods witch of Russian folklore.
