Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost

You'd think from the fragrance pyramid that this is mostly green, but the lavender and fruit, plus the floral and spicy notes in the heart make it more than that.
The oakmoss in the base, even without patchouli, gives it a chypré cast in the drydown.

Social Creatures Rebel Ambush
An invigorating blend of lavender, tobacco, vanilla, sandalwood, champaca and cardamom. Very green and forest-y with an ozonic undertone and some earthy notes. Not at all rebellious, but decent and very versatile.
