Comments: An incense fragrance as created by a mad scientist. Vanilla, rubber, maybe some vetiver. All comes together into something that reminds me of Spiriteuse Double Vanille. With more rubber. The rubber note gets stronger over the next 20 minutes or so. After 30 minutes, the rubber morphs to leather and some spicy (black pepper) and woody notes appear. Licorice appears after 45 minutes – but it is still very woody / leathery with a healthy dose of vanilla. The notes weave in and out from each other in a woody / incensy / vetiverish / rubber / vanilla cloud. Showered after 4 hours.
