On me, the violet takes precedence slightly over the smoke and fruits, tempering the grapefruit, and a lingering presence over the myrrh and light-woods base notes. Definitely smooth on my skin, and not sharp or cloying that as others find it. Like most of the EAs, it seems to have that airy, almost dirt-like, accord. In a reticent, confident way, I find it quite sexual in nature. Indeed, Night He is a light oriental I would (and do) wear over Brit, Le Male etc when looking for a warm, yet light, evening scent.
