After an initial blast with a brash citrus note, this did calm down a bit, but I often do not care for such an unbalanced opening.
But it improves.....
The key to this fragrance, for me, is the coriander. It balances the pepper citrus with warmth, and sharpens the patch/amber of the base. It is just on the edge of SPICE!, but not overt. It is smooth jazz spice. Sitting at work, I kept thinking "this is a little too much for work - too dirty", but yet, I like it.
There is a lightness and brightness to this one also that I appreciate. It hovers just on the edge of night wear (the spice), but fine for day also. It does not feel too heavy for summer, but certainly fine in colder weather. Nice enough fragrance, but these are pricey.
