The opening is crisp, cool & fresh, perhaps because of the myrrh, but l also get something like liqorice or anise here. This is followed by a green jasmine, settling into a smooth, creamy, floral-amber-musk accord. Thankfully (for me) l don't get any fruity notes. The sillage is good, & it lasts a good six hours on me. A very nice summer amber fragrance.
