An initial perfumey blast gives way to spices & citronella after a moment or two, then a little wood, perhaps sandalwood, followed by a slightly crisp, grassy note, then after an hour sweet, musky florals show up, but no gardenia. The sillage is quite good & could cause headaches in an enclosed space, but it's barely there on my skin after two hours. lt's ok, & might work better in winter, l'll wait & see...
Edit; bottle now sold. There were aspects of this perfume that l liked; the warm florals & gentle spices, but l just couldn't ignore that "bug spray" note of citronella. Neither could my co-workers.

I use this as aromatherapy in my home. It's a warm floral scent. Sometimes I like to mix it with rose absolue and vanilla :)
