Oh, how I *love* this scent.
It reminds me of mixing Santal 33 from Le Labo, Amber Absolute along with Pure Malt, and maybe a little LIDGE on the side (minus the grandpa \ dentists office sharp vetiver note that LIDGE has).
So in short; it's a more masculine version of pure malt with incense and sandalwood.
Awesome sandalwood and cedar notes in the base.
Cocoa and Patchouli on the top and mid, very comforting -- they kind of gell with each other in a very symbiotic way.
The cocoa here is very reminiscent of LIDGE.
It's a very comforting scent that's for sure.
I would also advise Mr. Lutens to rename this scent to "pimp juice" -- because seriously, that's what it is.
One small prob; it doesn't last on me as well as other SL scents do...not sure why this is, maybe I got an old bottle or something.
