Frankly this fragrance is the only Esteban's item i tested apart the wonderful new Esteban Patchouli, one of my favorite patchoulies around with its irresistible powdery and grassy/humid rose-iris combo, some spices and faint hints of incense. This fragrance is a more than decently appointed almost gourmand (and not utterly dirty) amber with orange, some sheer peppery dustiness, a tobacco/vanille delicious dry down and some woodsy resinous notes (pine?) that effectively conjure the Christmas's atmosphere in the link with a sort eliothropic and balmy ambery dominant cloud. I recommend it to all the lovers of the yummy and comforting ambers a bit bright and vaguely decadent. Not bad.
