“Where dips the rocky highland
Of Sleuth Wood in the lake,
There lies a leafy island
Where flapping herons wake
The drowsy water-rats;
There we’ve hid out faery vats,
Full of berries
And the reddest stolen cherries.
Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery hand in hand,
For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand.”
W.B. Yeats (song by Lorena McKennitt)

Enchanted Forest (*****), by Bertand Duchafour for the new brand The Vagabond Prince, is the olfactory representation of Yeats’ fairy island: mouthwatering berries and wet, lush fir trees, lively animals…
It’s a real magic potion, perfect to escape from the gloomy city: you close your eyes and a fairy takes you by the hand and leads you away from the smelly, tired humanity on the undergound, straight to Avalon.
