Strange fragrance that smells immediately fruity-hesperidic , than spicy-smoky and finally ambery-honeyed with chocolatey undertones. It evolves passing from a cool citrusy and aromatic level in to a luxurious spicy, slightly boozy warm base. I detect some hesperides, gingerbread, dark tea and cinnamon-lemon-cacao cream. The first stage owns a certain level of cool-aromatic fruitiness (ginger) and a sheer lemony vibe with its vintage bergamot that is intellectual and decadent. In a second stage of the development the smells becomes complex, passing through a spicy-dark tea level and ending in to an honeyed and chocolatey creamy base that in my perception is changeful, exotic, slightly liquorous and voluptuous. The smell conjures the blend of aromas and flavours you can breathe taking the tea inside an intellectual bistro with its liquors, the spicy tea, the cakes, the tobacco and the sweets. A very interesting and intimate fragrance that is not finally too much syrupy as many others from Lutens.
