The opening blast is a stony-mineral impression initially, that is soon enriched by mountain florals: phlox a lot, and also forget-me-not, and a darker violet
a bit later. All these combined result in a unique and beautiful mountain forest aroma. A juniper notes adds added depth here.
Later the forest feel is enhanced by a lovely cedar wood, combines with pine wood, and a dark but to sharp amber towards the end.
I get moderate sillage, very good projection, and an excellent nine hours of longevity on my skin.
An autumnal scent of great beauty and some rather unique mixes, blended well of high-quality ingredients. It is less complex than, for instance, dunhill's
Blend 30, but a great opus nonetheless. 4/5
