Comments: Blast of indolic Gardenia at the top. Does NOT seem light at ALL. The sillage on this is a pleasantly spicy balsamic floral – the pepper notes make an appearance. Up close, however, still overpowering indolic white floral. About an hour later, fades down to a slightly aquatic woody floral. Significantly more honeysuckle. I can’t smell much on the sillage (but then, I think my nose has been scoured by this point). That first hour, unless you are a true indolic white floral gardenia junkie, is much stronger than I had anticipated and I can easily see this as a headache-maker. Becomes a musky floral skin scent within 3 hours. Gone after 7 hours.
