The notes that strike me as dominant here are cypress coupled with violet. It is crisp, green and a little sweeter than I would like. I detect a bitter note in the opening that offsets the sweetness, but it really detracts from the scent. The bitterness goes away, the green remains. No real projection here; it stays close to the skin. I can’t really get offended by something I have to work at smelling (not usually at least). After a few hours, musk emerges and it is pleasant, but again no real projection. So-so at best.

I bought this scent for myself and I think it's more of a unisex rather than a masculine fragrances - it's delicately fresh and crisp but with aromatic floral undertones and the elegance of a swirling snowflake :). After a few hours you can definitely smell some solid undertones - amber, musk and sandalwood, as the description says - but they're not overwhelming.
I like the scent, it's very similar to Animale
