Interesting reactions to Johnny V!!The opening burst is vibrant and sort of citrusy (that's prolly the tamarind) - there's a hint of creamy amber and also of dates (the fruit - I am not familiar with the flower) It dries down to an herby vanilla and is overall like a warm wind off the desert (experienced by me only in Southern California)
I like "masculine" (herbaceous, woodsy - segueing into deep throated oriental) frags - they are refreshing on me, and assertive. There's a sense of quiet command and vitality to them that I like to have aorund me. KBE has introduced me to a couple of knockouts (this being one of them) Montana Parfum d'Homme is another - and I've always loved Habit Rouge in the EDT.
So sue me.
