Smells nearly identical to the orig 1990's formula of Minotaure by Paloma Picasso which had a magnificent dry down of orange/fruity notes, vanilla, and leather ... (my most fav frag of all time). But, the Virginia cedar aspect is synthetic and can have a faint air of cat pee, especially in hot, humid weather. L'Inizio doesn't have enough vanilla so I cut it with a little Raw Vanilla by Coty or French Vanilla by Dana. This also neutralizes the negative cedar aspect for me. Minotaure was reformulated so now L'Inizio with some added vanilla is my signature scent. Would give 5 full stars if I didn't have to add vanilla.
Pros: dry down of orange/fruity notes, vanilla, & leather
Cons: needs a little more vanilla ; cedar can turn very sour in hot weather"
