The very back of Grandma's Spice Cupboard

I detect a prominent puff of saw dusty or cardboard note followed by a pinch of peppery ginger buffered in a afterthought of soft amber resin and powdery musk. This also has a modern hopeful note threaded through the middle that must be coming from the mandarin and vetiver together. This scent gives me a Professional, smart, Tailored but somber feeling, boosting my inner courage like a early morning brisk walk through Central Park on the way to a cheerless staff meeting on chilly Autumn day. From my tester, the sillage is restrained and hovers about 1-3 inches off my skin with no intention of invading anyone else's personal space. I would describe this as gender neutral and on the right person, totally appropriate for business/day wear on a man, woman, other. Admittedly, is not my kind of fragrance comfort zone, but if you like Diptyque's Vetyverio's use of Rose, powdery musk, Mandarin around a resinous dry wood and spice bundle, you may want to sample this one.
