The whiskey disappears after a while, as it should be, so the main note of birch tar emanates with its typically smoky and vaguely barbeque scent. It goes well with vetiver, also of a smoky and earthy type, but round and without edges. It is a beautiful perfume, which in terms of "vibes" can almost be associated with Terroni (very different, however, from the olfactory point of view, mind you) and which recalls, due to the birch, Bois d'Ascese (which I prefer, for mere personal taste). Nice scent, definitely suited to a cold, very cold climate on my nose. Masculine, very masculine, at least according to my concept of masculine perfume, but I would not exclude the use for a woman, indeed ....
