Scent:

  • In the Imp (ITI): Heady opium opens the show, followed by the Nepalese musk, the slightly spicy plum, , flanked by the resins.  It’s exotic but certainly romantic at the same time.
  • Wet: Spicy plum, heady opium, musk and amber combine in a forceful but pleasant experience.  As it dries the plum and the resins get stronger.
  • Dry: 12 hours later, it still remains, faint enough not to be overpowering, but strong enough to still smell well on my wrist.  Dry, the opium, sweet incense, and amber have merged together in a lovely combination that is indeed romantic.  It reminds me of walking a room heavy with incense but tinged with sweet florals and subtle treats.  Lovely!
Other Impressions: Husband claims it smells like powdery lilies.
