    Excited to be trying this tomorrow. Got a sample the last time I was in the UK. The notes suggest a Conehead type of scent. Let's see if it delivers!
    Top Notes: Lemon Primofiore, Bergamot
    Heart Notes: Eucalyptus, Rosemary
    Base notes: White Cedarwood, Fir Balsam

    Disappointment. There is something about the particular lemon + balsamic cedar wood here which creates a foody impression -- like a slightly burned lemon cookie. This scent doesn't work for me, at all.

    Has anyone tried this and had the same impression?

    Just re-visited my sample. Quite sweet note in the cedar wood, and synthetic. That plus the lemon dominates.
    Cloying and brash at the outset. Settles down a bit and picks up a herbal note, like sage.
    But also an odd, plasticine-like note. Not pleasant.
    Don't get any conifers. Nothing here to please me.
    This went south and kept going. Eventually I had to scrub it off.
