    Re: what's the one note you can't stand much of?

    When in high doses or unfortunate blendings:
    Cumin, cardamom, Civet, jasmine, ambroxan, iso-E, oregano, smoky notes (the ones with ashtray smell), red pepper are the ones I can remember now.

    I mean newer formulations. I have a "vintage" (silver stem) and newer bottle, from around 2015. I find the leather in it stronger and the iris weaker than in the silver stem.
