    Eau Lente by Diptyque

    Strong and heady oriental juice with a big fat spice note. (Cloves, cinnamon, nutmeg, fenugreek, basil, god-knows-what...)
    Aromatic and incensy opoponax is harmoniously blended in, making this (together with those spices) smell like stepping into a bazaar somewhere in the east, or why not; some ethnical strore in Finland filled with all kinds of stuff, including spicy perfume oils and huge piles of different kind of incense products.

    Although not listed notes, I get hints of rose and geranium, too.

    This is a simple yet vivid fragrance that smells a whole lot better from a distance. And at it's best it works in intoxicating ways but the one should most definitely (once again) avoid spraying half a bottle at a time.
