  • ITI: I was expecting something a bit more forceful, but the myrrh, olive blossoms, and asphodel petals work together to soften the green, slightly astringent notes of the cognac. It strikes me as a scent that could indeed be soothing to man and beast alike.
  • Wet: Slightly stronger cognac, green but not excessively astringent or boozy, complimented by gentle asphodel petals and a faint hint of myrrh.  The olive blossom adds to soften the stronger notes, but exists far below them.
  • Dry: After 14 hours, I get absolutely nothing.  After my second application and dry-down, the scent has boiled down to green cognac, dusky myrrh, and a touch of olive blossom.  It’s rather nice and I may just procure a bottle of it.

Other: None.
