      Art Deco, smart choice.

      As for the frag, it all depends on that leather accord.

      I'm hoping the davana is more grape-y and wine-like than raisiny. That is going to be the make or break aspect of this fragrance for me. A grape-like davana + patchouli + myrrh and oud would make for a killer combination. Something kind of like Jubilation 25 (women's) by Amouage, minus the chypre aspects.

      Love the bottle, too.
