Comments: Starting with a headache so my impressions may be off. Starts orange/vanilla and sweet. Creamsicle. A powder note appears along with some white flowers within 15 minutes. The creamsicle remains. Pretty much stays that way for the next couple of hours. Then vanilla and powder with hint of floral (honeysuckle). Not unpleasant. Still going – more ambery/powdery 4 hours later. Kinda faint. Will need to try this again – without the headache.

Date: 6/3/08 Weather: 75 degrees, stormy, evening

Comments: Very strongly brewed earl grey with milk, honey and bourbon. About 4 hours later, amber/vanilla/jasmine/honeysuckle. Liking this one a lot this time.

Date: 10/21/08 Weather: 45 degrees, sunny

Comments: Bergamot and herbs – very strong. A tuberose note, with that hint of saliva, appears after an hour. Goes ambery with a hint of vanilla. After 5 hours – a stunning vanilla with a hint of woods and roses. Fairly close wearing. At the end of its life (about hours 8-10) a honeysuckle, sandalwood blend dominated by vanilla. Love the drydown on this one. Evolves very differently on each wearing.
