I had a similar experience as you. This one really hit me in my scent sweet spot. You are correct when you say its good in cooler weather but I've also found it to be good in warmer weather too.
I also found the longevity to be above average and I also am entranced by the drydown.
I think this is a hidden gem from a company not on many radar screens.
If it wasn't for another Basenoter wearing it I never would've found it and that's oneof the reasons I love being here.
