Less heavy than the original, a touch fruitier in the top notes, with a longer benzoin-vanilla drydown and a touch of a bright soft amber. Rich, luscious vanilla without being cloying, at least not on me.   I can imagine that it can be too much on some skins.


Very prominent sillage, excellent projection and a sensational longevity of over fourteen hours on my skin. Good in spring.


This is one of the rare cases where I prefer the flanker over the original.  Apply sparingly.
