This fragrance opens with tart citrus fruit mixed with a fresh botanical note: the resulting accord is dewy green and slightly sweet. On my skin the greenery note does not develop very well, because at times it smells like stale water in a vase. As the fragrance progresses, this main note gets more defined and gradually morphs from grassy to herbal to finally reveals itself as spice: it was star anise all along. The scent gradually loses its vegetal-herbal aroma and turns into a quiet earthy fragrance with lively touches of spice and lemon. The dry down is sheer patchouli with a remnant of citrus fruit.
