United Kingdom
A fruity-citrus opening, combing bergamot with the sweetness of fresh plums and limettas. There is a slightly boozy absinthe, which is quite weak most of the time; and there is a green touch added in, but not much of a convincing pine needle accord on me.

The drydown continues the fruity theme, adding impression of cranberries and whiffs of boysenberries at times. Later on a jasmine makes a showing, which a light, slightly green jasmine that continues well into the base.

When the base develops, the sweetness becomes richer and meatier, fueled by a vanilla-tonka duo that expressed caramel characteristics closer to the end. Initially lashings of whites musks are present, but with time they are replaced by a nonspecific woodsy undertone that struggles to compete with the sweet onslaught of the tonka-vanilla attack. I get very little of any sandalwood though. The caramel-cum-tonka forms the coda of the development of this creation, fading out gradually and the end

I get moderate sillage,good projection and an excellent longevity of thirteen hours on me.

This autumnal scent is not bad and tries to add a touch of originality, but its connection with Russia is rather tenuous. This might be contributed to by its generic and overly synthetic nature. 2.5/5.
