Hmm, the notes in this scent make me nervous. I hope that it doesn’t turn ultra foody and cloying on me. *Fingers crossed*.

- In the Imp (ITI): I get ripe, green apples, a bit of bubblegum (not sure where that is coming from), and just the faintest aspect of herbiness. It’s a bright and pretty scent in the imp.
- Wet:Ripe while still firm apple, slightly herby, like rosemary, and just a hint of overt sweetness like amber. I fear it could go a little chemically on my as there is just a tinge of it now, it the apple certainly is interesting.
- Dry: Faintly apple and a sweet herbiness. Very pretty in terms of a spring scent.
