Independent Fragrance Rater/Reviews


A spicy-sweet-herbal opening, with clover and basil in the foreground' whiffs of sage are also present transiently.  I notes an industrial undertone of dried dust and steel.  The sweetness comes for an impression of tobacco leaves, which appears a bit of an artificial and quite ambery recreation of a flavoured pipe tobacco that is mainly composed of Virginia tobaccos.  For a while a nigh-medicinal balsamic character is faintly noticeable.

In the drydown the sweetness in given added strength by some honeycomb notes, which had an undertone of cinnamon and saffron at times; for some brief moments  it reminded me of gingerbread too.    

I et moderate sillage, very good projection, and seven hours of longevity on my skin.        

A wintery tobacco-gourmand scent, which is not particularly creative in the selection of its core notes, of which some can be a bit generic at times, but the components work together very well.   Overall pleasant and agreeable.  3/5
