Source: Luckyscent

Date: 10/6/07 Weather: 65 degrees and foggy

Comments: Top very citrus. Almost like cleaning fluid. Fades to something herbal, then amber/floral. Drydown a slightly leathery amber/wood. A journey scent – I wouldn’t call it fully “amber”. Dead in 3 hours.

Date: 1/28/08 Weather: 33 degrees and breezy.

Comments: Has a citrus/herbal top. Almost cologne like. Picking up a bit of mint this wearing – possible holdover in my nose from the tea tree wipes I used on my face this morning. Wore it to the gym – very clean smelling with a hint of amber. Didn’t pick up the floral notes this time or the leather. End an ambery wood scent. This fragrance registers as more masculine than unisex. Still dead in 3 hours.

Date: 4/9/08 Weather: 55 degrees, cloudy

Comments: still has that masculine citrus/herbal top. Also a very soapy amber. Becomes a bit fruity in the heart this time. Drydown amber/wood and slightly floral this time. Still only lasts about 4 hours. Still an interesting journey scent. I’d love it a lot more if it lasted longer and if it didn’t have that off-putting citrus/herbal/soapy top.
