- ITI: It’s sweetly resinous with touches of dried fruit underneath. I’m just worried about the quince on my skin, but so far, so good.
- Wet: It smells like warm fruit cake, although I can detected the patchouli and bergamot. Surprisingly nice and warm.
- Dry: As it was drying, I remember having a favorable response. It becomes less fruit cake and more alluringly warm and resinous form the amber, coconut, and myrrh. There is a slight sweetness to it from the mimosa, but it just adds to make this a gorgeous, feminine scent that would be a great winter, fall, or spring scent.
Other Impressions: “It’s like black pepper, tobacco, and roses. The notes aren’t individually nice, but together, it’s a really comforting scent.” -Tony
