Leif Erikson Drive was initially constructed to promote development at the turn of the 20th century, but instead ended up being one of the main reasons Forest Park was preserved. Originally coined as Hillside Drive, developers desired to transform this steep hillside area into neighborhoods and build homes. Geologically, this area is risky to build on with wet, unstable conditions resulting in landslides, and costs discouraged further development. The road remained, and in the 1920s cars would attempt to drive through it, but the frequency of landslides prevented regular traffic. The Sons of Norway persuaded the city to rename the road after Leif Erikson, the first known European and Icelandic explorer to have discovered North America.
Leif Erikson is inspired by the masculine intrigue of what one may have smelled on such an explorer. Zesty citrus notes provide a a great balance to the depth of bay leaf, cedarwood and oakmoss.
