Date: 5/24/09 Weather: 80 degrees, cloudy

Comments: Starts with a hint of leather, vanilla, hint of carnation, white floral (the orange blossom?). Previous sniffs from the vial had a distinct melting rubber quality. Not getting it this time, or in wearing. The vanilla and slight rubberiness reminds me of Bulgari Black – but lusher. Start picking up more of a distinct orange blossom note after 30 minutes or so. This one is beautifully blended – so I’m having a tough time picking out notes or really describing this one. The deep base (about 4 hours in) – amber, vanilla, leather, musk, hint of orange blossom. Remained a strongly vanillic leather / orange blossom blend for the next 16 + hours. Still there the next morning. I can definitely see this one being very unpredictable to wear.
