I have been wearing this for the past 10 hours and here are some initial impressions. I gave it 10 sprays to make it comparable to my usual wearing of the EdT.
The original VdH is still clearly recognisable from the off, although the zesty citrus has been toned down a little. Within 20 mins or so, the rose becomes quite apparent and, as it continues to bloom over the first hour, it has the effect of adding body and depth, compared to the more airy EdT. It makes the parfum feel warmer and more rounded. The rose is a delicate one, as you would expect from Ellena - it does not overwhelm the other notes but it is clearly detectable. It makes this markedly different to the EdT; the difference being more obvious than the same comparison for TdH. The parfum is a little sweeter than the EdT, but still firmly unisex. I see amber is described in the notes list, but I can only really detect it in the far drydown. The cardamom is as present as in the EdT.
Longevity: I do not think this has markedly greater longevity than the EdT, except as a skin scent. I can still smell it now, after 10 hours, but it is very quiet. It reached skin-scent status by about 6 hours.
In summary, this is a beautiful and interesting scent, particularly for fans of the original. Whether it will win new converts, I'm not so sure. It is certainly a pleasure to wear for those who enjoy subtle scents but if you are looking for another attention-grabber or wacky scent, go elsewhere.
I will have to wear it some more to get better acquainted.
