Date: 12/12/07 Weather: 50 degrees, cloudy

Comments: Starts jasmine. Becomes floral jasmine with hint of vanilla and a little powder. Like a perfume version of the Oscar Biandi Jasmine oil. Develops to gentle, sweet vanilla scent 6 hours later. LOVE THIS STUFF. Not a dud note in it.

Comments: Still starts with powdery jasmine. Becomes floral with a hint of vanilla. Took shower 2 hours later – wound up with more powder and vanilla. Still very nice. Shockingly sturdy. Oddly enough – works well in the gym. Not overly powdery – just a clean floral with just enough vanilla to keep it interesting.

Comments: Jasmine to floral vanilla. Slightly musky. As it dries down, becomes spicier and more vanillic – particularly around the 5 hour mark. Was a very faint skin scent (spicy vanilla with a hint of florals and musk) after 8 hours. Amazed at how wearable this stuff is. Gone by the 12 hour mark.
