It opens with *sigh* my love, tuberose, so I'm already done for. But THEN... oh, yeah, wait for it...I get LOTS of spicy leather fairly quickly. It's a very different leather than I'm used to smelling, it has sort of an oriental spice quality to it. I'm not typically into the spicy scents, but this is luuuuuurrrrrve.
Have you ever had chocolate with cayenne in it? The sweet + spicy is bizarre at first, but you very quickly love it. I'm totally experiencing the same thing here. (That's an analogy folks, there's not really any chocolate or cayenne pepper notes in this perfume.)
I get decent enough sillage, interestingly enough, because I'm usually a total sillage slayer.
I feel like this is leathery/spicy enough that a dude could totally pull it off. But that doesn't mean I'm going to stop wearing it!
Oh, Hermes, Hermes, why do you do this to me? I'm yours forever.
