From Dusk to Dawn
I haven't smelled the previous formulation so I'm coming in with a fresh nose and no associations to what seems to be a controversial reformulation -
This fragrance goes through a number of stages which I find quite interesting - definitely not a linear scent. A fresh opening that is quickly drowned by the 'dusk' into a dark body led by the woods, the patchouli, and to a lesser extent the dark chocolate notes. As the fragrance develops, the darkness fades and a softer/sweeter, lighter base comes to the front with the vanilla, tonka and rum notes bringing out the 'dawn' part of the composition. Throughout, the dark chocolate and patchouli notes are the anchors, though they do fade further into background in favor of the lighter notes towards the dry down.
Excellent performance and great longevity on this - as it should given the journey it takes one through.

An interesting take on patch in a synthetic ambery base (but smooth, not sharp) unique to my nose. A good patch for non patch lovers

I purchased this perfume after reading the reviews for the 2020 version not realizing it was reformulated. Tragic mistake. Returned ASAP.
