I would also like to add that the opening of Hamptons has 'cedar' in it as compared to the 'fruity' opening of SMW. Somehow i have started getting a lot of 'cedar' from Hamptons which at times doesn't make me feel too happy. I am not a 'cedar' fan.
However the jasmine and a hint of rose surely kicks in during the middle and the cedar is pushed in the background.
I think the heavier 'cedar' and 'amber' give Hamptons its decent longevity.
I also find the top notes of Hamptons as 'spicy' sometimes. I dont know where the 'spices' come from in the top notes but they are surely there.
Top notes are fresh savory greens, lime blossom, bigarrade oil (from the bittersweet orange flower),
lemony lime bergamot, and balancing stimulating armoise oil, with overtones of cedar and sage.
The midnotes are lush florals: magnolia, white jasmine and Turkish rose.
Then comes the beautiful drydown, amber, sandalwood, and cashmere musk
Citrus notes, Tea, Blackcurrant, Musk and Ambergris.
As we can see, they just have citrus notes and musk in common. I dont know what imparts the 'ink' note in both of them.
Overall SMW is the fresher of the two and is a real aquatic. However its longevity is pathetic on me. Perhaps thats the reason why i appreciate Hamptons as it is the next best thing for me.
