The first time I wore this, I didn't spray a lot and it smelled like upfront fennel (green and leafy with a hint of licorice) over a classic chypre of bergamot, galbanum, moss, and grassy green patchouli. It was pleasant but kind of weak, so the next day I sprayed on a lot more and got something completely different. With a heavy hand, there was a salty watery plum on top, with a thin, chemical-smelling blond wood note underneath, which filled in a lot of the space that felt empty with less sprays. But with more sprays, the captivating fennel and chypre elements were pushed to the background while the thin plum and buzzing chemical woods were the stars.
Honestly, the more perfumes I try, the less patience I have for scents that are structured with thin watery chemical smells as a focus. Depending on how much you spray, they always seem to feel either thin and incomplete, or sneeze-inducingly synthetic. Meh.
