OK, yes, I know, please don't point out this fragrance's pyramid to me again. I am well aware of my olfactory shortcomings. I smell what I smell.
This is a sweet cooking spice oriental which would be all too straight down the middle of Broadway and supremely unexceptional but is redeemed by an oud-like something which colors the whole affair with a little mystery and edge and gives it interest it wouldn't otherwise have. That said, it's still a little too "bandaid" for my tastes. Smells artfully put together. But a cooking spice oriental with oud-like pretensions? So not my kind of thing. Magic carpet riders only. Don't forget your turban.....or your money purse.
