A green, herbal opening blast with rosemary and hint of a slightly grassy basil lead straight into the patchouli. This is a bright and rather smooth patchouli, without any darkness or any roughness - and antithesis to the Purple Patchouli of the same house, although not without moments of a leathery earthiness.

Further into the drydown nonspecifically a strong cypriol is notable, and later woodsy undertones develop; and finally the base turns into a sweeter realms: dominated by vanilla and a somewhat bland muskiness.

I get moderate sillage, good projection and five hours of longevity on my skin.

This autumnal scent represents a lighter take on the patchouli theme, but it is quite generic and a tad too synthetic in some of its aspects. 2.75/5
