LIB mentioned a connection to Poivre Piquant and Santal Blanc (which, I completely do not smell at all!) and this made me think the sample was a L'Artisan - which is why I posed the question last night, 'TWolf, is the bottle clear?' To me PP smelled like milk and pepper, and it kind of grossed me out. Same for Santal Blanc - the fenugreek smelled like sour vegetables. Blech. Is it a L'Artisan TWolf?
I don't smell rose in B purplebird. Like I said before it's more of a unique floral note, I thought it was narcissus (which BTW, I generally don't like).
It smells European to my nose (not American).
Dry? Well, it's semi-dry...I guess. (?)
TWolf - was this scent released in 2002?
