- ITI: I’m more intrigued by this scent than I had anticipated. It’s very much a loam, rich and moist, followed by the lovely and sharply green juniper and evergreen note, but there’s an interesting smokiness to it as well that I’m really liking.
- Wet: It really does smell like there is some labdanum in this blend just against the juniper and evergreen notes. The loam note hoovers just underneath while the lightest impression of floral keeps the scent from becoming too dark and somber.
- Dry: As it dries, it’s just a wonderful symphony of florals -roses, lilies, and another white, slightly spicy floral – underneath a deep loam and a smoky veil covering it all.
