Scent:

  • ITB:  Sweet, delicious and resinous!  Myrrh, red patchouli, benzoin, cocao (not overly foody, but just perfect), and musk.  Gosh, this smells great so far.
  • Wet:  Mmm.  Cocoa, musk, patchouli, and benzoin together smell divine.  It’s sexy and resinous.  The only way this could be better is if there were a leather note.
  • Dry:  Once dried for an hour, it’s slightly powdery, but with tones of must and red patchouli.   The myrrh lends some sweetness to the scent and there  are pleasant touches of benzoin, tobacco, and super faint cacao that make this a keeper for me.
Other Impressions: None.
