  • ITI:  This reminds me of walking through U.C. San Diego’s Eucalyptus grove in fall, although with the deeper wood of cedar and the heady, blue, swirling herbal yet minty tones of sage.
  • Wet:  It’s a bit more herbal and clearly cedar, like carved cedar trunks specifically, it it still remains the lovely tones that I picked up on in the imp.
  • Dry: I’m surprised by how soft this turns own when dried, like clean cotton drying outside a log cabin early in the morning.
Other Impressions:  None.
