    A fragrance that smells like turmeric - whaaat!? How is it? There doesn't seem to be a lot of information out there about it. I used to blend fresh haldi/turmeric when I'd get sinus infections in that hope that it'd stop the inflammation. Can't say it worked. Though initially the scent was an odd pleasure - that is, until it reminded me of sinus infection fevers. Curious scent none the less.

    Can you smell the turmeric in it? What are the main notes on you?

    I finally got to smell this. Very smooth leather with spices, including turmeric-but not too much. I sprayed it only on paper so I wonder how it performe on skin. My favorite in the line, since it is not as straightforward as the others in the line, which are nice, but perhaps too simple, as somebody else was saying.
