  • ITI:  This strikes me as a clean and fresh scent on first sniff.  I can pick out the mint, thyme, and juicy cranberry.
  • Wet:  It’s more round on my skin as the tobacco and teakwood  show up.  The mint and thyme are still dominant, although followed closely by the cranberry and currant.
  • Dry:  It’s cranberries and currants, galore!  There is some impression of thyme and teakwood, but I’m still really enjoying this scent. 

Other Impressions:  “I like that.  It smells like that two-toned Lush bomb you like to use.  It’s floral without being too much floral, and it has an herby tone to it.” -Tony
