  • ITI:  It’s soft, reminiscent of sun-dried linen with a hint of rose and something that is skewing almost like a citrus note.
  • Wet: The rose and cypress are a little clearer on my skin, and I can tell there is orris root here, but it serves as a slightly powdery base that displays the florals rather than competes with them. 
  • Dry: It’s very light after about 10 hours of wear, but I can still tease out the rose, something slightly sweet, and a dusty myrrh.

Other Impressions: None.
