It is simply wonderful and the best of the current 4 Hermessence offerings - an amazing tonka/vanilla note blended craftily with a subtle yet slightly-spicy vetiver. Almost gourmand in nature. There is a hint of citrus woven throughout the scent and though I'm unsure of its actual presence, I also detect a subtle hint of anise. Whereas, say, Lutens' Vetiver Oriental is quite thick and heavy (and I love it ), this is much lighter and fresher, and much mroe subtle. The Hermes reminds me ever so slightly of Lempicka for Men's summer scent, but with an accent on vetiver.
