OK I finally got to wear it today. It's a vanilla bomb, so if you don't like vanilla steer clear. The dry woodiness provides some balance. After an hour the vanilla is toned down considerably. Longevity is about 6 hours on me. It's semi-sweet. I like it, but prefer RMW. It approaches my tolerance limit for sweetness (which is lower than average). A warm fragrance for cold days. Hope this helps!
I'm in the UK so it would probably wouldn't help even if I could remember! Probably John Lewis or Debenhams (department stores).
It's a dry woody scent with a hint of smoke. Also violets, but nothing to frighten the horses. It's rather quiet and needs spraying heavily to get any volume or longevity out of it. The quality is good for the price. I prefer it to other dry woods eg Chene, which I find a bit tiresome and screechy.
Er, I'll tell you when it shows up I said no more blind-buys, but I like the notes in this and I like RMW. And it wasn't expensive!
Thank you, I appreciate your telling me.
