  • ITB: Lycanthrope smells like shaggy musk, spiced cardamom whisky, and a light sweetness that is too diffuse to pick out as cream or fig.
  • Wet: Sharp cardamom and strong whisky with what smells liek a dash of pepper thrown in dance about my wrist.  After a few seconds, the fig inserts itself between the whisky and the cardamom, although I wish the cream note were present as this needs it.
  • Dry: After 6 hours, the scent has settled into an absolutely lovely version of a musky cream with a subtle hint of spiced whisky.  It’s much more sophisticated and much less foody after it has had a chance to settle. This one is definitely worth the dry-down.

Other Impressions: None.
