This scent is in regular rotation in my work wardrobe.

Date 8/16/07 Weather: 80 degrees and rainy

Wearing: Start with orange and amber oil. Middle is red berries (I think raspberries) and frankinscence. 15 minutes – becomes berries,frankinscence and amber. 30 minutes in – sandalwood, frankinscence and amber. LOVE THE DRYDOWN.

Comments: Quite fruity to start. Becomes amberish. Nice dry-down. Will finish both samples.

Date: 9/4/07 Weather: N/A

Comments: Still like the dry-down. Not the top notes. Lasts about 3 hours or so, then becomes faint vanilla/amber/sandalwood.

Date: 9/5/07 Weather: 90 degrees

Comments: Finding fruit lasting longer on this wearing.

Date: 11/12/07 Weather: 40 degrees and clear

Comments: This one is longer lasting than most of his scents (about 4+ hours). Also has less citrus on the top this wearing. Floral with spices and vanilla on this wearing. Sticking it in the “office arsenal” for mid-day refreshing.

Subsequent wearings: Using this as an office scent. Starts with spicy orange and dries down to a really beautiful spicy amber scent.

Date: 12/27/07 Weather: Cold

Comments: Starts with Candied Oranges. Then candied oranges & berries with cinnamon, clove, allspice, nutmeg. Then more of the spices with incense. Drydown eventually vanilla, wood, spices w. some frankinscence. Lasts about 5 hrs + w/ some in and out fade. One of these scents I’ve been mindlessly wearing all fall. Usually in the afternoon. Though I’m not entirely crazy about the fruit at the top, it quickly dries down into something wonderful.

Date: 1/8/08 Weather: 55 degrees

Comments: Still get same note structure and drydown. This time, the scent lasted much longer – I could still smell it strongly at 6 hours. At drydown – decent with red wine (who knew?) No comment from the Bowler boys this evening.

Finished first sample 1/8/07
Retierd 2nd vial – Swap to Ms. Taolady 4/18/08
