- ITI: I sniffed this last night without looking at the scent notes and immediately found it pleasant. Today, I’m getting a lovely anise note surrounded in a gorgeous polished mahogany note tinted with a faintly spicy carnation far in the background. There’s something that reminds me of a library here for some reason.
- Wet: This is gorgeous on the skin! The spiciness from the carnation almost moves into the realm of clove surrounding a deliciously fabulous soft anise and darkly glistening mahogany. Depending on how this is when dry, I may have to get myself a bottle.
- Dry: After 10 hours, it smells like soft, billowy mahogany cotton candy with a sprinkle of anise spice.
Other Impressions: “Strawberry citrus with a little bit of dark plum skin? That smell is like how dark plum skin tastes. After it develops, it’s less citrus, more plum.” -Tony
