This is a rich, honeyed fern scent. In fact, it is a triple fern scent, since the ingredients listed are “fern”, Spanish moss and oakmoss.
I could not find any citrus or lavender in the opening, but then these notes are so fleeting on my skin that this is my usual issue. An unusual note appears, kind of a cross between chocolate and rubber. This must be an aspect of the moss elements. There also is a lot of sweetness, but this gradually burns off. More agreeable green mossy notes emerge, which deepen and take on forest floor and even coniferous aspects. I appreciate this phase very much. The final dry-down is too ambery to suit me.
