Reminds me of a very old woody smell like tobacco, chat noir, vanilla, misk and amber.. like the ones we used to sell in grandpa's cologne shop in 80s..
I just love patchouli+tonka combinations, and I could smell it right away when I tried this on the smelling strip. Haven't worn it yet, but initial impression very positive.
Very powdery in a delightful, calming way. A hint of flowers, but for me it's the powder note that I love most.
Imagine the best baby powder scent (a really, really good one) and make it a little more grown-up. For me, it's like a soft calming embrace, that curiously reminds me of some product (wish I could remember what!) used at the beach in my childhood
I received this as a Mother's Day present. I hated it immediately. However, one doe not want to insult the gifter, so I did not take it off.
Later, pink pepper and perhaps iris? came around, and even later, I cannot even describe what I was smelling, but I do sort of like it.... I have no idea if anyone else in the house thought.
Oh, but my son brought a huge mixed bouquet of flowers. So confusing.
The mandarin and pink pepper notes burst forth, the iris eases in, and then the fragrance settles into a warm vanilla with just a hint of the mandarin still noticeable.
This fragrance confounds me. It's familiar yet foreign. There's something not quite right about it, but I love it. I think it's the lingering citrus notes on the dry down that makes it seem a bit ... sour? But still, it just works for me.
This is a fragrance in which I'd recommend the eau de toilette over the eau de parfum, the latter of which has the overwhelming smell of Johnson & Johnson's baby powder. The eau de toilette offers a much more nuanced scent.
