Comments: Wow!! Sweet amber, slightly floral, vanilla. YUM! Becomes only slightly sour on the drydown

Date: 10/20/07 Weather: 59 degrees

Comments: Catching more of the cardamom this time. Still starts very amber. Not as much amber or floral on this wearing. More ambergris and civet. 2 hours in – a bit of vanilla and powder with the amber. Refreshed it later in the day – sweet amber, citrus and floral. Very pretty.

Date: 9/25/08 Weather: 60 degrees, rainy

Comments: Wearing this over 1 hour old Kretek (a combination recommended by Chaya on Basenotes). I can see why – the Kretek amplifies some of the spice notes at the top of this scent. Sadly, my wonky nose is not allowing me to pick up the details of this combination very well. Dried down to a musk with amber laced through it. Never picked up the musky notes before in this thing. Very attractive. Lasted about 6+ hours. Gone the next morning.

Retired – Finished sample 9/25/08
