Date: 11/18/08 Weather: 32 degrees, sunny

Comments: Orange/Grapefruit oil and black pepper. The citrus oil stays as the black pepper morphs to a resinous frankincense. 30 minutes later, the citrus oil burns off. Up close – resins on a charcoal burner (dominantly frankincense). On the sillage – a powdery sandalwood. A few hours later, a slightly anise-like vetiver note appears. The whole is still fairly powdery and strangely comforting. Lasted 8 hours on my skin, becoming very close-wearing after 5 hours.
