Spicy with a hint of leather
On my skin Bay and Armoise (Artemisia) are the prominent notes with little whispers of pine coming through every now and again. Clove comes out, not to strong but not too weak into the drydown. Musky Patchouli arrives to guide you into the drydown, asking with a slight note of leather.

The total package in the forest
Fans of the woodsy-earthy category must love this fragrance. This is about some impressions packed in a bottle. There is dark earth, mud in the pine forest, cold wet ashes from last night's campfire...The carnation and rough leather...

It is definitely not a light fragrance, rather dark, wet cold forest under a grey sky.

If that was the intention, they did a nice job

Eloge du Traitre
This fragrance opens with a bold mix of pine and kitchen herbs with an added touch of clove to warm this accord. To me this fragrance does not smell like a forest, but rather like an old pharmacy. It also vaguely reminds me of Spezie by Lorenzo Villoresi. After two hours jasmine breaks through the green main accord. This marks the second stage of this fragrance: patchouli and leather replace the kitchen herbs, creating a dusty, dry base for the sheer floral note to dance on.

First impression
'In Praise of the Traitor' is pine-patchouli fragrance. The opening starts with bay leaf and a little tarragon. Once the fragrance enters the heart, the pine becomes apparent, and to my nose, the patchouli as well. Some clove makes the heart a bit spicier. In the dry down there's again pine and patchouli. There might be some leather too, but I couldn't pinpoint it. I suppose at the end,the fragrance becomes a bit woodier

Compared to other pine fragrances this one has more patchouli. The main note (pine) is made to seem extra dark green, because of the patchouli. I got the same impression from Aramis Havana. The pine note smells more like woodsy pine tree, than like green pine needles. While people see most similarity to Caron Yatagan, I'd like to contrast it with Lutens Fille en Aiguilles: Both Traitre and Fille smell rather woody and dry, but Traitre really shows the patchouli. Fille may be more unisex because it has less herbal notes and perhaps a pinch of sweetness. The herbal notes make Traitre lean towards the masculine side. IMO Yatagan is more animalic, and I also think that Traitre isnt similar to Polo

While I don't love this scent, it's a solid fragrance that's worth considering.
