Opens with alcoholic sweet and bitter citrus notes. Underneath the citrus notes I detect a sweet note, which grows stronger as the citrus notes fade. On my skin the body of this fragrance is mediterranean herbs balanced by a powdery sweet iris accord. If I get very close to the skin I smell a peppery, woody base carrying the sweeter, headier note. As the fragrance develops, the powdery sweet notes get stronger and push the herbal notes into the background. The dry down is mostly amber and vanilla.
