This is another imp I swapped for in the hopes of determining if I should add it to my collection.  I hope I like it as this is what I would have classified myself when I was younger. Aside from that, I do like leather notes.

  • In the Imp (ITI):  i get a chemically smell, like machine oil, something slightly metallic and rust on top of a stiff black leather background.  It’s rather masculine.
  • Wet: Machine oil with some sweetness from the opium tar and hints of tobacco.  The leather starts to come through as it dries, and it’ s more of a well-worn and oiled leather smell.
  • Dry:After about 6 hours, I get machine oil, leather, and a hint of rust.  It smells like my father’s vintage Mercedes.
Other Impressions: It reminds my husband of Tarpon Springs’ sponge docks.
