- ITI: I get myrrh and ylang ylang. It certainly does smell seductive, although I’m not sure how well it will hold up to hard labor today.
- Wet: Oh, the myrrh and musk are stronger, while the ylang ylang balances it out to produce a deliciously inviting scent. This reminds me a little of Chanel Number 5 in terms of the depth of the scent.
- Dry: 30 minutes dry and the myrrh has calmed down to harmonize with the musk. There is just the faintest hint of sweetness from the ylang ylang. It’s still sensual, but pretty as well.
Other Impressions: Tony thinks it smells like coco butter, which he likes.
