  • ITI:  Slightly fruity and sugary tobacco.  It’s much sweeter than I had anticipated.
  • Wet: There’s a bit more caramel to the tobacco, but the earthiness of thickness of smoking tobacco is very much center stage on my skin. 
  • Dry:  Earthy, vanilla-infused caramel-y, thick, and heady.  It’s a wonderful tobacco scent and I wish I would have picked up a bottle of it before it went dark.   

Other Impressions: “It smells like a mocha chai.” -Tony
