  • ITV: That’s a nice gentleman’s scent there.  It’s alluring in its combination of ozone, vetiver, cedar, ginger,  and violet leaves.
  • Wet: It’s slightly more floral on my skin as I can pick up the violet leaf in strong abundance, but the foundation of ozone, cedar, and ginger and present.  As it starts to settle, the tonka bean begins to sweeten everything just a tad.
  • Dry: Dark tonka infuse with bergamot, violet leaves, ginger, and cedar.  I might be tempted to wear this out as a scent for myself if I am ever feeling adventurous.
Other Impressions: “It’s like darker flowers and berry juice.  I wouldn’t call it a full-on guy scent, but it would work as a unisex scent.” -Tony
