Cedar done well.
It opens with Cedar. There is a hint of spices (cinnamon, cardamom, ginger) behind it, but cedar dominates fully. It's a fresh, dry cedar. Like wood freshly removed from the kiln. After it warms up a bit a sweet musk with some added sweetness of plum and honey peek out. This is really a lovely transformation. The plum and cedar pair so nicely. It's an interesting pairing, preventing the scent from getting boring. There is also that spice mix peeking out, but it's very understated.
After a couple of hours I mostly get benzoin, plum and honey in front of the cedar with a hint of spices.
The dry down is all sandalwood, benzoin and a nice ginger zing. There is also a nice clean musk in there and a faint memory of the cedar, spices, and honey.
Overall a lovely scent with a nice progression. The sillage is personal, but more than a skin scent and the longevity was about 8 hours or so.

spoiled plums
I think this may be one of those fragrances that chooses its people. It hasn't chosen me. I keep retrying it every once in a while because it has so many notes in it that I usually love. (And I do like Fendi's Asja, which has a lot of them in it.) On me, it's plums that have just started to ferment, with a dusting of cumin. Yuk. (052809)

Bold woods and spices. This (the original by Shiseido) comforts me deeply and is one of my all-time favorites.+1
