The opening of 1826 is a sweetened Bergamot which after the first few seconds is joined by patchouli. There is a nice spiciness to the heart notes that tames the florals and patchouli but that is so well integrated into the fragrance that it doesn't smell spicy. The amber and incense start poking through at about 20 minutes but like the spices in the heart notes these notes are integrated to work with the other notes to give them depth and character. After about 2 hours is when I get the most amber, a slightly dirty amber that doesn't seem too vanillic or sweet. On my skin it fades from existence after about 4 or 5 hours leaving only the slightest hint of perfume on the skin. This sticks fairly close to the skin and has very little sillage. I think this is more unisex in character than feminine as and such is worth checking out if you are into patchouli or amber frags.
