Base Notes: Musk, Woods, Amber, Moss
A rather traditional fougère-style scent that doesn't seem to have any coumarin notes in the pyramid. Still, it is a bit herbal and mutedly floral with some spicy aspect that also seems not to be listed in the pyramid. The base is very classic for men's fragrances: amber, moss, musk, and unspecified woods. The woody note seems to have a bit of a leather cast to it, so it may be birch. it seems to be a real eau de toilette strength, and so not extremely long-lasting, but it doesn't do too badly in that way either. Its chief appeal is that it's kind of stereotypically masculine in a gentler, more refined sort of old-school way. Definitely male, but not a big, bold 80s-style power scent. Its drydown is really quite satisfying. I give it high marks. It's a pity it isn't better known, but it comes from a South American company in Bogotá, Colombia, though the nose, I believe, is from Geneva, dans la Suisse romande (French-speaking Switzerland). Et voilà!
