RingER sent us a correct guess -- congratulations! First time sniffer, big time winner, most notes she mentions DO tickle my nostrils in A. I also tend to agree about Kenzo L'Elephant similarities, not so much about SL Filles. But altogether, I think you have done wonderfully!
From FrouFrou's combined descriptions, I got one line -- spicy, clovey, and various spices submitted as guesses. Could you please describe what you are actually smelling -- without trying to go through the notes one by one -- that comparison to your Dutch winter stew was very appropriate -- please tell us all what the Dutch stew is about? Meat? Fruit? Comforting? If there is nutmeg -- how much and how it lasts? If there is cinnamon -- is it too aromatic or too dry or Moroccan/Arabic style? If there is pepper -- what kind do you think? Any herbs? Anything else? Would you agree about the woods RingER mentioned? How does the woody component manifest itself? Why do you think A was included into this theme? Pretend you are writing a review for the Directory: listing of the notes is NOT what reviews are about, right?
W., they can be either, or both.
