  • ITI:  The scent is bright and golden.  The citrus reminds me of kumquat, but the harshness of it is tampered by the fragrant roses and jasmine.  The amber and orris both add a sumptuous and powdery tone to the scent as a whole, which reminds me of the quaffed wigs indicative of the era.
  • Wet:  It reminds me of sipping rose-infused lemonade on a warm spring afternoon in a blooming garden.  Very nice.
  • Dry:  It’s like orris and amber-dusted roses.  The citrus has completely faded, but the scent is still gorgeous.
Other Impressions: “Whatever you are wearing smells nice.  Wear more of it.” -Tony
