Wearing this today for the 1st time. I LOVE IT! Wow, it's good.
I smell the same incense shell, that Duchaufour uses in Dzonghka and Timbuktu by L'Artisan - but in EdI it's sheerer, lighter and not so...hissy. That 'steaming pickle juice' accord is absent and in it's place is that wonderful smell of mud, terra cotta, whatever you want to call it. I smell like a place, not a fragrance - which is a facet I love in fragrances.
It also manages to be fresh, without resorting to the standard neroli, petitgrain, blah-blah-blah of eaux type colognes.
I was turned off to all of the other scents I've tried from this line, for one reason or another - but this one is wonderful. Oh crap, another bottle added to my wishlist.
