Oil Color: Nearly clear with the faintest hint of yellow.
Bottle Design and Artwork: This is a standard vial / imp size (1/32 oz). The is a decant, but I’m not sure from whom. The label is simple, featuring the name of the company in Old English font, and the title of the scent and collection on the front.
- ITI: Oh, how pleasant. The honeysuckle is he first note out, and it has such a delightful quality. After second sniff, I can pick out the rose mallow, and it clearly is rose mallow.
- Wet: It is so pretty on – honeysuckle, carnation, and rose mallow. I think I can detect a little musk, but it’s softer than what I normally envision as musk.
- Dry: It’s a bit more perfumey now that it is dry. The musk and honeysuckle are foremost, followed by the rose mallow. Oddly enough, I don’t smell anything metallic at all.
Other Impressions: He smells oranges and other stuff. He likes it.
