I read a number of reviews prior to sampling this, and they all mention jammy plums and leather and powder. So far, so good. However, about an hour after applying, I was struck by the same dry, dusty spices used in Ambre Sultan. I happen to adore this element (in both scents), but AS haters might want to think twice about this one.
Sweet, soft, clean violet/vanilla. Does what it says on the tin.
This was my go-to fragrance in the years before falling down the rabbit hole, and I don't wear it all that often anymore. This morning, it smells vaguely soapy. But nice!
It doesn't have quite the longevity of Vanille Incensee, but I reach for it on the same sorts of days.
(For comparison within the line, this may be a safe choice if you felt Honey in the Moon was excessively sweet.)
