I must begin by saying that Number Six is a nice spicy eau de cologne for everyday use. It is not as decadent as the Guerlain Eaux or Lorenzo Villoresi, but it certainly holds its own in the cologne arena. Six opens with a burst of bergamot, lime, lemon, rosemary, and possibly orange. The heart is a musty floral as others have mentioned with spice--likely clove. I find this as cross between the vaunted Berdoues no. 444 Extra Vieille and Roger & Gallet Extra Vieille though it is not as good as either of them. For the price, this is a GOOD cologne evocative of small 18th Century middle class--Farina catered to the upperclasses unfortunately for Caswell-Massey.
