Fabulous. Restrained, elegant, discreet - yet warm & comforting too. As other reviewers have noted, the individual notes can be elusive. At different times I have detected carnation, rose, sandalwood, roast chestnuts & slight smoky quality. On other occasions, I find it difficult to detect any individual notes, rather an elegant harmonious whole. This review is based on the EdT. I have started saving now to buy the parfum for next winter.
