Notes: cardamom, bergamot, basil, water iris, Egyptian jasmine, cyclamen, rose, patchouli, vetiver, cedar and sandalwood.
This is a nice scent, more lemony than Hermes’ Un Jardin sur the Nil but with a very similar woody dry-down.
The opening is citrus-lemon with good hints of basil and spice (cardamom). The citrus is reasonably persistant. There is a suggestion of creamy iris, but in general the florals are restrained and not sweet. The drydown is woody (cedar, sandalwood) and of medium intensity.
This is a woody take on a classic cologne. Well done, perhaps not striking but very acceptable.
