A fascinating oddball that I find myself coming back to again and again. It really smells of the beach on a cold day, bringing me back to summers spent on beaches of the Gulf Islands of British Columbia. The smell of driftwood is so literal I can almost feel the wood in my hand when I'm wearing it. I can pick out the seaweed and patchouli and what must be a lot of ambergris and there's the oud which somehow takes this scentscape and makes it a wearable fragrance. I'm a bit prejudiced against aquatic or oceanic scents as something to actually wear but this one is transportive.
