  • ITI:  I get rosemary and something that reads as golden – which I think is the verbena paired with the lavender.  It’s very pretty.
  • Wet: The lavender is much stronger here, so I’m not getting the nice balance between it and the verbena, but even as more distinct notes, the scent works very well.  The verbena and rosemary end an mystic and pensive quality to the scent that I’m rather enjoying, which the neroli wafts gently underneath.  Sadly, the frankincense has yet to show up.
  • Dry:  It’s still bright and lovely from the rosemary, verbena, neroli and lavender.  I just wish the frankincense was more apparent.
Other Impressions: None.
