  • In the Imp (ITI): While I get amber, it’s a fig, clove, and nutmeg amber.  I hope it doesn’t turn powdery on me.
  • Wet: The amber is just a touch sour on my skin, and there is an odd dry grass note in there in addition to the nutmeg.  What an odd scent.
  • Dry: Dry, spicy nutmeg and pastry-like amber, although I do get something a little more foody but that I can’t place.  Odd.

Other Impressions: When I stepped away from the computer to let the scent dry, both cats pounced on me in an attempt to feverishly lick the scent from my wrists.  At the very least, it is a very appealing scent to cats.  Tony claims that there is a round smell, some orange, and fresh name-brand band-aid smell.
