    Cruel Intentions by By Kilian

    I give this a thumbs up for the very good woody drydown.
    It starts with an intensely sweet note. It is sugary, like candy. It has rich vanilla notes and is almost more than I can stand.
    The sugar quickly burns off and smoky, leathery and animalic notes appear. This phase is complex and has many aspects. Hints of bright aloewood -- good. Hints of vanilla -- not to my liking. There is also a dry, grassy-reed note from the papyrus, and a creamy yet dry sandalwood. The leathery note gets very fleshy, reminding me of tuberose.
    The last phase is a warm, glowing wood note of incredible duration. This has hints of spice and musk in the background.
    If I loved the other phases as much as the final, this would be a sure-fire thing for me. I do appreciate it.
