Scent:

  • ITB:  It’s spicy, warm, and very brown.  Carnation and clove pair beautifully with the brown musk and bourbon vanilla underneath.  I’m not picking up on any other notes aside from those at the moment.
  • Wet:  The warm musk surrounds and lends a delicious softness to the clove and carnation.  The pine has now emerged just underneath the top-notes, followed softly by the bourbon vanilla and yew berry.  I get a very subtle impression of leather, but nothing more. Gorgeous!
  • Dry:  I love this one so much – clove, musk, vanilla, and a hint of pine lend itself to a warm scent that’s also rather alluring. 
Other Impressions: None.
