For me it starts off smelling like ink, mostly from the sumi ink note. I get that for about 15 minutes or so. Then it turns into a very flowery/powdery female smelling perfume. I don't find its one uni-sex at all. I think it's better off worn only by a women. It doesn't smell unique to me either. It smells like any other mainstream womens perfume that is highly powdery. It's only really unique for about 15 minutes ,and when the ink note fades everything just gets boring.
