Rich and luxurious with its almost tropical mélange of fruity/ floral elements, a touch (just a touch and not a more prominent hint as in First) of honeyed animal feel and a strong accelleration over a cinnamon/neroli/raspberry vibe. Strong in its musk/galbanum/vanilla/honey combination. The marigold/bergamot/patchouli/vanilla association smells deliciously retro and conservative. The dry down is floral/oriental with a multifaceted congeries of classy whiffs. I detect some apricot but probably is an ostensible outcome elicited under my nose by the fruity floral blend plus sweet oriental elements and tonka. The base produces a sweet/bitter interaction of dry fruits and tonka with the support of musk and galbanum. For grande dame.
