- ITI: Wow, that lemongrass is strong. It’s followed quickly by the rosemary, which adds a interesting edge to the scent, but this isn’t delicate. It reminds me of a Thai spa that had doused some of the waters in essential oils.
- Wet: Wow, I am amping that lemongrass. Dang! I was looking for a subtle scent since I had appointments, but this is not subtle.
- Dry: After 8 hours, the scent is much more pleasant. It’s an almost amber rather than dragon’s blood resinous tone on top of cedar, rosemary, and a hint of lemongrass. It’s worth the dry down, but give yourself half an hour for it to settle before loading into any crowded elevators.
Other Impressions: “Holy sh*t, that’s lemongrass. Lemongrass and something else, but it’s hard to detect because there is soooo much lemongrass.”-Tony
