Loveliest forest scent
This scent starts brilliantly with a big blast of potent spice. Cinnamon, molasses, rich fruit cake and tar, backed by evergreen resin and earthy patchouli. Soon the massiveness ebbs and I am left with a sweeter forest scent. I can't keep my nose away from my skin. The big sillage drops rather quickly, but still I have put this on my wish list.
This is a beautiful scent - for me, very strong at first, but shortly mellowing down into a lovely combination of floral with a backbone of leather and wood earthiness underneath. I can't discern any one floral from the bunch of notes listed - it just reminds me of a lovely noseful of a florists bouquet. The basenotes are so mellow and perfectly compliment the florals.

For the manly man
To me this seems like a very masculine scent, even though it seems to be categorized as unisex. Very smoky at first with an underlying whiff of celery (that must be the sage and carrot seed), and underneath a faint sweetness. Super interesting and complex. I wouldn't wear it for myself, but I'd definitely put it on my man.

Love, love this!
Opens with a blast of strong candied sugar rosieness. Some have said orange tang, but to me like tearing open a package of Koolaid, that first puff of microscopic fruity sugar powder that lingers in the air. Feels very structural at the beginning, almost you can sense each layer separately. The top end mellows from fruity sugar powder to distinct citrusness. Very complex and interesting. As it mellows it becomes more woodsy and somewhat soapy. All along that jammy rose is at the forefront however. Has nice projection, fairly strong at first, but didn't last too long on me.
Not a favorite for me...
Begins very musty, like the closet of an old priest. It must be the frankincense that brings back flooding memories of Sunday mass. The frankincense fades and mellows as the life of the fragrance progresses. More underlying spices come through. Very green and woodsy comes up, also. Nutmeg and the coriander as mentioned in the notes. It mellows really nicely becoming more pleasant as the time passes. For me just a bit too heavy with the frankincense all along.
