Comments: Starts with a very pretty pine/cedar note. Quite balsamic but still very dry. Hint of citrus in the first couple of minutes. Then goes cedary, then settles into a suede iris leather. Not picking up the spices or the florals or any of the weirdly compelling notes other commentators notice. Just iris and suede leather. Finally start picking up spices at the 3 hour mark along with the vanilla and amber. Gone after 6 hours.
