The first and most noticeable note is the spice, cinnamon and clove, and this continues for quite awhile. Eventually, some floral notes begin to emerge, and the angelica root and anise start to peek around a far corner. The scent is quite strong and distinct, but without an offensive sillage. After the cinnamon/clove onslaught has faded a bit, the next things to make themselves known are the cocoa and oud notes. The oud note seems a little shy, or perhaps it is just hiding behind the cocoa absolute. Finally, the base notes can step forward, and there is a slight reprise of some of the head and heart notes, though faintly. Honey, woods, balsams, and patchouli are surprisingly soft (or maybe only relatively so after the strong spice notes of the first blast). The floral notes and the orris root come through a bit more in this stage, too, as well as a hint of the orange and petitgrain. At the final stage, the fragrance finally shows its complexity and a very elegant development toward a gentler and more classic tone.

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

Discovered this a few years back in the EDT - then Shades noticed my idiot burbling and kindly sent me the even better Extrait.
It's at the rich end of chypre...look at the base: vetiver, oakmoss, patchouli, sandalwood, labdanum. In pace of jasmine there's carns which give it a spicy warmth. A bit much for this mild day - but what the hay!!
