It's not the iso e super as I don't have a problem with that in other scents.. it's that damn aspirin like salicylic note. I once got that aroma when blending grapefruit and opoponax oils at about a 35/65 ratio. It was aspirin like, chalky, and disgusting. Anyhow, I fell asleep with about 3 sprays of TdH still going strong on my chest and woke up with the most massive throat and head ache. Shortly after showering it off I felt totally fine - so it was definitely the TdH that caused my pains.
I do appreciate its basic structure and the fact that it's really quite dry and unsweetened - I just wish it was made with more naturals or at least less of the aspirin like note. Given how restrained the scent is after the first 30 minutes or so, i don't see how it has garnered so much love here on BN.
