  • ITI:   It is spicy and musky, but certainly floral from the chrysanthemum and poppy.  I remember sniffing this when I first got it and not liking it as much.  It appears that this one ages well.
  • Wet:  Very spicy poppy, succulent wild plum, musk, and chrysanthemum.  It makes my mouth water.
  • Dry: It doesn’t last too long, but I still get something that is a sweet poppy and musk mix.
Other Impressions: “It smells like guest soap.” -Tony
