  • ITI: Oh yes! Heady patchouli, deep, dark, almost astringent writhes against fiery cinnamon with touches of sandalwood to sweeten the mix.  Sin indeed.
  • Wet: Even better.  The sandalwood is so much darker than I anticipated in this blend.  Imagine a cabin deep in the woods, surrounded by rich soil, pulsing plant life, fragrant woods and sandalwood curling from the cabin’s hearth.  Now, add dark cinnamon, corrupted but beautiful to the mix.  Pardon me while I roll around in this scent.
  • Dry: The amber is more apparent once dry, sweetining the smoldering  cinnamon and patchouli notes along with the sandalwood.  It’s a bit softer, but it’s still dangerous and incredbily alluring.  To the wishlist you go!

Other Impressions: It gets everywhere.  Apply carefully. “It smells pretty good.  Kind of Lily-like, like lily and ambergris.” -Tony
