Woody, aromatic, spicy, herbal, fairly sweet. I find this a very appealing scent. Like most Hermès creations, this smells elegant. I can wear this to work, but not too often; it seems to attract too much attention and distract coworkers and the public. It's perfect for an evening engagement of a more personal character, dinner or a date; perhaps it would be most appropriate at an elegant soirée. One of things it does suggest to me is an evening in black tie. The juniper berries and cedar really take the lead with this. Carnation, spices and vanilla provide the underpinning and do the heavy lifting. Key words: Smooth. Elegant. Relaxed. Confident.
