- ITI: Brushed blueberry juice, currant, and golden coconut laced with tobacco meet my nose. It’s warm and dry while being juicy and soft. Interesting.
- Wet: The blueberry isn’t so forward, but I’d still say that it’s the top note immediately, with a trace of blue lotus petals and currant. A lovely toasted coconut amber warms after a couple minutes followed by khus, which is just a bit confusing here. It’s not bad at all.
- Dry: Soft, warm, ans gently sweet. Coconut amber with a hints of tobacco and a whisper of a blue-ish floral linger on my skin after 4 hours. It’s pleasant and certainly would be great for anyone who likes a toasted, exotic coconut scent tone to their scents.
Other Impressions: “It’s like a tiny bit of rose but mostly cocoa butter suntan oil.” -Tony
