  • ITI: Oh, now that’s a really lovely bergamot!  Often, the Lab’s bergamot notes are shy are retiring, but this one is grand and showy, flanked gorgeously by cedar, neroli, and thick tobacco.  Wow!
  • Wet: It’s similar to what I get in the imp, but the lemon peel peaks though, as does that icky jasmine note that just smells like cheap Glade air freshener.  Thankfully, the bergamot and neroli are strong enough to rival the jasmine.  I’m keeping the fingers crossed that the jasmine note dies down.
  • Dry:   Nope, it’s all jasmine air freshener.  Boo. 

Other Impressions: None.
