Further, it's hard to say that it's X/Y% Epic/Silver in the sweetness and spice mix, as this scent has something strange going on structurally. It's almost like two (three, at one point) scents layered over one another, one which is a spicy and smoldering pepper,incense and earthy vetiver with herbal nuances, and one which is more floral and sort of ethereal, dream-like. At times I've found my nose latches only to one of those olfactive threads as I call them, and other times it perceives the other, while sometimes both are clearly perceptible. This has changed, sometimes dramatically, with each wearing, and is why I've had such a hard time understanding the scent and why the review has been postponed a few times. Just when I thought I figured it out, it threw a new twist at me.
