Notes: gardenia, wild orchid, opoponax, patchouli
This is an interesting scent. It is a very sweet and assertive floral - not my style at all. Yet, for a while I find things to appreciate.
The opening is rich, heady, sweet and quite floral. It creates a powerful presence; at once sharp, resolute, steely and not at all shy or demure. In other words, not the usual floral chord. This deepens with myrrh tones, and the patchouli is only a minor note.
However, in a short time the florals get too big and put out considerable sillage. As I said, that is not my style. I'll give it a neutral rating for its interesting character.
