This is a goregeous powdery, rich fragrance. It offers a lightness and heaviness that can only attest to the quality of the ingredients. That being said, in true Xerjoff style of the fragrances in this collection it is an upscaled soap/pomade/cream/talc powder/deoderant/shampoo. It is not worth it's price in my opinion despite it's beauty... unless this is a genre you want to invest in. This is a very high quality powdery iris, woody number and will fail to disappoint any who love such fragrances, it is long lasting on clothes, hair and skin; the projection is fantastic ; it is a stellar example of it's genre, but it is not unique. It shares a similarity with Join The Club - Fatal Charme but FC has more edge. And is cheaper.
