  • ITI:  I get hay in late fall, vetiver, and bergamot – it’s distinguished, gentlemanly, but approachable.
  • Wet:   Smoky vetiver is followed by a really delightful but full-bodied opoponax note, steeped in bergamot.  Yum!
  • Dry:  It’s an odd mix between clean (hay and bergamot) and smoky vetiver, but as a whole, it’s a nicely refined scent that does seem to evoke its namesake relatively well.

Other Impressions: None.
