    Default Overwhelming powdery note in LIDG

    When I first smelled LIDG, I loved the fresh, green notes combined with the cocoa so much that I bought a large bottle. After a month of wearing, all I get is an overwhelming lavender powder scent from it. Is the scent changing or is my perception of it changing?

    I don't get that powdery note when I wear it.

    I can't say I get much of a "powdery" note. I'd say I get more of a slightly "dusty" cocoa with woods, anise & patchouli for a long time until it fades more to the cocoa & woods in late dry down.

    This one is a patchouli bomb and that is why I bought it twice and sold it twice. The first time I wasn't getting that much projection and the second time it was to heavy on the patchouli for my liking.
    My current top ten:
    1. Spice and Wood
    2. Tonka Imperiale
    3. Dior Homme
    4. Pure Malt
    5. Oud Wood
    6. Ambre Nuit
    7. L'air Du Desert Marocain
    8. Noir de Noir
    9. Apple Brandy
    10.Straight to Heaven

    I really don't get powder or patchoully. The drydown smell like chocolate and sandalwood to me but I have only tested twice. I could probably get powdery to some cause I think there might be flowers in the top or middle notes.
    Any opinions I post here about frags only reflect MY PERSONAL TASTE and only my personal preference which could change at any moment.

    LIDG is one of my favorites and I never get a powdery note...but then it's also not a patchouli bomb for me either.

    I do get a very powdery jasmine in the beginning, but upon revisiting it I am getting more citrus instead
