If you can weather the initial burst, this fragrance is much more than a gourmand, sweet mess. The licorice, anise opening is just verging on cloying, but it never crosses that line for me. The blend of these notes stay deftly balanced, but present. The combination is beguiling.
After 3 - 4 hours, it calms down to a beautiful woody aura with the faint sweet residual notes mixed with vetiver. Whiffs of this beauty will stay with you for hours. In fact, if this fragrance took one step off the pedal in the opening, and one step further on the pedal in the base....I would say perfection for this blend. But still, pretty darn good.
Still around after all these years and worthy of an exploration or a revisit. Extra lovely. Much more serious than the fun bottle would suggest.
