  • ITI:  It’s papery white florals, lilac, and anise seed on first sniff.  Interesting.
  • Wet: It’s warmer on my skin, with the benzoin offering a slightly resinous tone to the carnation and lilac.  Just under both of those is the tuberose and the anise seed, contributing some softness as well as some of that pungent licorice smell that characterizes anise.  Very nice so far. I like what the anise is doing here, but I do love licorice notes as well.
  • Dry: As it was drying, I kept thinking about paper, but more along the lines of bamboo paper.  After 8 hours, the scent is now primarily lilac and anise seed.  

Other Impressions: None.
