Size: 5mL EdP

Notes: Sandalwood, Hawthorn blossoms, acacia, rose, Himalayan geranium, Lavender, Musk

Date: 10/19/07 Weather: 70 degrees

Comments: Starts with a green wood. The green burns off, making it a purer wood scent. Frankincense and amber make an appearance in the dry-down. The whole is slightly powdery. A very pretty scent, a bit sweet. Gone in 6 hours.

Date: 2/8/08 Weather: 45 degrees, clear

Comments: Starts with a green wood, this time with a hint of menthol. There is also a healthy lashing of frankinscence and myrrh. The menthol burns off and it turns into a sandalwood/frankinscence. With as stuffy as my nose is today, this scent is somehow quite refreshing and soothing. More like burning incense. Within 30 minutes – a frankincense/amber perfume. Not as much powder on this wearing. Big fan.

Date: 3/16/08 Weather: 55 degrees sunny

Comments: Incense with a hint of menthol on first spray. Quickly becomes sandalwood/frankincense/amber. Still not have much powder on this wearing. Fantastic when is was drizzly this morning.

Date: 5/30/08 Weather: 75 degrees, sunny

Comments: For whatever reason I was in the mood for incense this morning. Sandalwood/frankinscence/amber with a slight sweet floral note (rose). Lasts FOREVER! Was still going 12 hours later.
