Antaeus by Amouage
I've been wearing this for six hours and it's softened into a creamy incense. It opens with a blast of cypress and juniper that hangs around for a little longer than you'd like. Behind them lies a peculiar animalic note (must be the leather) that gives the whole thing the quality of Antaeus though not quite as subtle. Holding all this together is a sharp incense that is reminiscent of Honour Man. There is a hint of sweetness but it doesn't go beyond a mere twinkle. This is a well blended composition and certainly worth trying, especially if you like Antaeus or Amouage's more spicy offerings.
