    It starts with good citrus and fresh juniper notes. It quickly moves to spicy notes (clove, nutmeg) and with a few herbal ones (mostly clary sage). Never sweet but fairly powerful due to the spice. There are some cool aspects to the dry-down, probably the juniper, frankincense and fir. Basically, it is a spicy scent with some wood notes. I like this scent. As I become more familiar with it, I get more of the incense notes throughout, and find the dry-down to be very pleasing. I wish it was a little more coniferous in style, but the spicy, woody, incense notes are really good. The vetiver has an earthy-root note which also is a bit smoky. Gets good reviews here on BN.

    Agree this is a pleasant scent. However I'm not enough of an incense fan and I found the frag on the whole a little denser than I prefer, like many niche scents -- think a greener Amouage or something. Also didn't get much coniferous either.

    bumping this juniper-prominent scent. It is very good. Of interest to physalis and other juniper lovers.

    A lovely scent to revisit at this time of year. Watch for comments tomorrow!

    I like this scent. Starts with citrus and light spices, then moves to a woody and bright conifers. A warm scent overall, lovely for winter and the Christmas holidays. Grassy notes from the vetiver combine well with the wood, particularly in revealing a smoky note at the end.
