  • ITB:  It’s rather spicy, actually.  It smells almost like sweet cinnamon, but I know it’s clove mixed with cognac, vanilla blossom, and myrrh.
  • Wet:  Dusty clove is still the top note, followed by frankincense.  I really can’t smell much else right now.
  • Dry:  It’s beautifully and sweetly resinous once dried  – myrrh and frankincense followed by oak and vanilla blossom…and faint clove.
Other Impressions: None.
