I don't know if my sample was filled with the wrong fragrance, because it smelled like a sweeter, less dry version of Bois Farine. It was also nauseating to me. I didn't get incense or sandalwood, just this bulging, blended scent that did not smell pleasant, nor interesting. There was no dynamism among notes, and fortunately after an hour or so, it lost its punch and was hardly perceptible. I'm not sure what the perfumer was going for with this one. I've found some of the Ava Luxe fragrances to be at least interesting (and also more long-lasting than this one), and not nauseating, but this one is certainly not for me. Sample first !
