- ITI: Steeling myself for a heavy dose of aquatic nastiness, I’m instead met with wood smoke, rum, strong tea leaves, and salty sea spray. It definitely feels like a beach. In fact, it reminds me of walking along the shores near Monterey.
- Wet: It’s much more aquatic – watery, salty, sharp – on my skin, but the amber musk does a decent job of tamping down the quality of the aquatic somewhat. I do really enjoy the sandalwood and tea notes that drift under the sea spray.
- Dry: Much to my surprise, the aquatic tones from the sea salt note have nearly faded away completely. Instead, I’m left with tea leaves, rum, musk, sandalwood, amber, and a hint of smoke. I like it much more once dried.
Other Impressions: “Hmm, that’s nice. It’s spicy but it smells like incense, too.” -Kelly
