Galaad opens with a very mild mix of spices driven primarily by a cumin-like cardamom that is deftly implemented to not come off like BO as many others do, coupling with a "just barely there" underlying tobacco note that is easy to miss if you are not really trying. The open is so mild and subtle that at times it is difficult to detect much of anything beyond just the faintest hint of spice. Things do open up in the scent's heart, as Galaad gets relatively sweet with the use of an ever-growing honey note coupling with myrrh incense and the remnants of the opening spice to create a very balmy accord that gives off the appearance of a powdery consistency. As the scent proceeds into the dry-down in its final stages, the sweet honey continues to pick up further steam, turning Galaad just shy of intolerably sweet but never completely crossing the line, with the powdery balmy nature continuing as well, only kicked up another notch. Projection is minimal (especially in the initial stages of the scent's development) and longevity is very good.
