- ITI: Dragon’s blood resin and salt. The salt note is rather distinct, but it actually tempers the resin, which can be quite overpowering at times.
- Wet: It’s interesting. Usually, I’m not a fan of aquatics in the least. The aquatics here are similar to water lilies rather than brackish aquatic notes I’ve smelled in the past. The salt still soothes the raging dragon’s blood to create something that is both wonderfully resinous, smoldering, but at the same time, soothing and reflective.
- Dry: It ends up drying down to just soap, like the soap presented to you in generic gift baskets. Aww, I really wanted to like this one. Sadly, into the swap pile it goes.
