Date: 1/17/08 Weather: 32 degrees and sloppy (snow, sleet, ice)

Comments: Starts bitter. No fruit, no flowers. Just bitter and sour. This is on freshly showered scentless skin (no fragrance in the bath soap). The same nutty off note found in Ava Luxe’s Loukhoum. After 15 minutes – that note turns woody and a little like cat pee. Finally starts developing a vanilla note after 20 minutes. But that vanilla never seems to override the nutty off note. I will have to revisit this one another time.
