Wearing: Chocolate top note. After 5 minutes – incense, wood, cloves and hint of tobacco. IN 7 minutes, vanilla replaces the tobacco note. In 8 minutes, musk replaces the wood. In 9 minutes – frankincense, amber, orange oil and cloves. In the drydown – amber, vanilla and frankincense.

Comments: Interesting and unexpected top note. Interesting journey through to the base. Really nice fragrance. Gone in a few hours.

Date: 9/15/07 Weather: 70 degrees, sunny. Doing heavy physical labor.

Comments: Lasted much longer this time. Bit of a dusty note towards the bottom. Still has that interesting chocolate top note. Nice silliage – I could smell myself occasionally during the move.

Date: 10/14/08 Weather: 76 degrees, sunny

Comments: First spray much drier and woodier than expected. Almost bitter. In the sillage – woods (mostly sandalwood) and incense. Very dry. Still pretty sillage. I sense my nose is a tad out of whack because this does not smell like the scent I remember. Gone in 5 hours.
