- ITI: Strong jasmine, thick musk, sensuous myrrh together make me want to swoon. It smells great so far!
- Wet: The mandarin and musk warm up on my skin, which pairs really nicely with the neroil, jasmine, and bergamot, but the jasmine seems to be getting stronger on my skin. Still, not bad.
- Dry: After 13 hours, I can’t smell anything. After reapplication and quick dry, it’s strongly resinous with neroli, myrrh, and something that smells like a little patchouli. The jasmine gets soapy on my skin, but the rose keeps it from a bathroom-only scent . Several hours after that, the mandarin and neroli diminish as it dries and jasmine takes its spot as the note to amp them all. *Sigh* In the swap pile you go.
