Date: 10/28/07 Weather: 55 degrees and sunny

Comments: Very sharp lavender green on open. Fades to incense, then powder. Lots of powder in the drydown. I think the top and heart are interesting. Wasn’t crazy about the drydown. Scrubbed after 30 minutes. May need to revisit this.

Comments: Still sharp lavender green on open. More floral this time – particularly on sillage. Smoky lavender resin up close. Heart very resinous this time – almost astringent. Then mellows to the smell of resin burning on charcoal. After 30 minutes or so – a bit of fruit (almost cherried), amber and a vanillic note on the sillage. Still has the resin burning on charcoal note up close. After 90 minutes or so, a gorgeous incensy floral laced with vanilla comes from the sillage. Stays this way for about 6 hours! Gorgeous! The final gasp, about 8 hours after application – more resinous. 30 minutes definitely was not enough time to get a good bead on this scent.

Comments: Lavender – more gentle this time. Then becomes a pretty floral with a healthy dose of incense, vanilla, amber and vetiver. Not picking out notes very well. Seems powdery on this application – but powdery in a good way. Also slightly musky – enough such that it seems to meld with the skin.
