Comments: From the container, strongly woody. On the skin, the woods and a sour note. A flash of vanilla appears 5 minutes in and disappears after a minute, then the sour woods return. 30 minutes later, the sour note minimizes and it turns a bit rubbery. Not bad, per se, but not good either. The rubbery note morphs into Play-Doh. The sillage is nicer – don’t catch nearly as many of the off notes as I do up close. Practically vanishes after an hour. Returns occasionally as a close-wearing bready vanilla when I concentrate. I’d be more inclined to wear L’Artisan’s Bois Farine if I wanted bready. Not crazy about this one.
