This is a fragrance that moves pretty quickly to a slightly medicinal myrrhe and a semi-sweet vanilla. And there it sits for the life of the fragrance. It basically smells like a very nice drydown all the way through. There is nothing here to dislike, if you like those two notes, but there is also nothing to get very excited about. It smells good, but possibly is lacking in the wow factor.
For this reason, I give it a neutral, but do give it a sniff if you think it might appeal to you.
Sweet and monodimentional edible myrrh with a touch of honeyed incense. Nice as deodorant for cozy winter evenings in front of fire but too much minimal and destructured to be considered a real fragrance.

This is a soft, woody incense fragrance with just a touch of dark gourmand that is very charming. I first tried it at a very posh mens' tailoring shop in Seattle, and was advised that it was a favorite of the establishment's Microsoft-type clients. I said, " oh really?", and wondered....how many of those guys wear bespoke suits? A very nice gentleman's fragrance with aspects of English and Italian vibe to it that you never see around, but is excellent in a very subtle way.
