  • ITI:  This ‘s deliciously woodsy (a nice, full-bodied wood) with an overlay of cinnamon.  It’s warm and comforting.
  • Wet:  The cinnamon is stronger on my wrist, but the cedarwood along with the patchouli are much more distinct as well.  I do pick up on a little smokiness, but it is faint.
  • Dry:  It’s a lovely, round, warm, comforting scent – woodsy, slightly resinous, and spicy from the cinnamon.  I wish I had more.
Other Impressions: None.
