The main note l get in the opening, & which remains to some degree throughout, is horse manure! l have sniffed quite a few animalic fragrances lately, but never have l come across this note so distinctly. l should say here though that this note is not as unpleasant to me as it may be to some, as l grew up in the New Forest, where the wild ponies are part of everyday life. As the fragrance develops, hints of fruit, tobacco & amber drift in & out, before it dries down to a warm, rich, honeyed floral. This stage is most enjoyable, but it all fades out after around three hours, just as l'm wanting more.
l'm not sure l'd want to smell of this all that often, but the shock of that manure note is strangely thrilling, & l will definitely be compelled to revisit this sample at some point.
