Date: 9/4/08 Weather: 75 degrees, sunny

Comments: A my-skin-but-better floral incense. A sweet rose and some woods dominate during the first 30 minutes. There is a bit of powderiness to this that appears at the 30 minute mark. Violets also begin to come forward. Very pretty and wearable. 2 hours in – morphs into a light vetiver scent with a hint of violet. Still really enjoying this. 4 hours in – a lightly balsamic scent with a hint of musk. Stays here for the duration – around 6 hours or so on the wrists. Still going strong on the chest almost 10 hours later. Had to shower.

Date: 12/30/08 Weather: 46 degrees, sunny

Comments: I’m trying to outrun a cold so I am not picking out notes very well. Stunning floral. White floral / sandalwood / vanilla. Very smoothly blended. Stunning and very wearable. Fades to a balsamic musk and stays here on the skin for the next 12 hours. Tremendous longevity on this one.

Date: 2/26/09 Weather: 45 degrees, sunny

Comments: Strong sandalwood this time. Hint of floral, hint of vanilla, some musk. Still very long lasting. Could still smell it on my skin almost 18 hours later and it reactivated in the shower.
