  • ITI: If you are a woodsy fan, this certainly would be a treat.  The cedar is soft, burgundy rich and  slightly smokey.  The pine emerges as a secondary notes and keeps the scent from being too oriental, while the berries and just the right touch of subtle sweetness far underneath the other notes.
  • Wet: Heavy, smoked woods tinged with what initially smells like laudanum but settles within the minute to pitch and pine.  The berry note is very, very light, hidden among the foliage and dense forest undergrowth.
  • Dry: It smells like newly crushed fall foliage after 8 hours. I do wish it had more staying power and retained more of its smokiness, though.

Other:  None.
