Scent: 

  • ITI:  I get the impression of something relaxing and clean, which must be the lavender. I’m not picking up much else aside from lavender, though.
  • Wet: Yep, that’s lavender.  However, I’m now getting a bit of green from the mandrake and moss, and a bit of strong lily-like flower from the asphodel.  It’s a bit in-your-face soapy smelling, but it’s okay.
  • Dry: After a few hours and a mild workout, the scent is much less soapy.  In fact, it’s pleasantly soft and floral from the tuberose, asphodel, and frankincense (very light).
