This was the quintessential 'Meh' fragrance for me. It wasn't bad, but it just didn't do anything for me. It has a warm nut and cool vetiver opening, which gives it a cool/warm juxtaposition. This is interesting, but only mildly so. In the drydown it becomes more vetiver than chestnut, at which point the combination is more pleasing, but it's still hard to get too excited about. Vetiver fans might find this one an interesting take on the note, but there are too many nice fragrances out there to mess with ones for which I have to work up an interest.
