This is really sage-y on me.  To the exclusion of almost everything else, sadly.  I do get a hint of cardamom in the background.  There is a Middle Eastern kind of vibe to it, definitely.

 

I'll have to try it again in a month or two.

This is my favorite of the summer releases so far which is funny because I initially put it into my no or maybe pile when I first sniffed them all from the Vial. Then realized it was the one I was most looking forward to. So I went back specifically for it and upon smelling it again from the Vial  it struck me as being perfumey. Wet it does smell a bit perfumey but that part changes fairly quickly. It’s sweet sticky figs with spice and resins. It smells a good deal like Exotica to me Fig wise. And it smells like incense. But no patch in this one. It may be the Musk that is reading perfumey on me. In any case I love it. I’m not getting much sage which is good for me. Erin’s Hot Honeyed Fig was my first hardcore LP Love all those years ago and this reminds me of that mixed with Exotica which I also love. I’ve slathered this beauty at least 10 times in the last few days.

Straight out of the vial this takes me back to our Turkish neighbors kitchen. Baklava, coffee, figs, honeyed sweets, exotic spices and something always cooking on the stove.

The sage comes forward a bit later. It adds a [sort of] hippy/head shoppe scent to me that I actually do not identify as a traveling companion with the rest of the notes. Lol. Its like a Turkish family living in Venice Beach (c.1980s). Amusing as that is I could do without it. Usually I like sage. But, it is a detergent/cleaner to me. Here it just brings on that caravan scent and I was grooving on homemade exotic cooking and sensual sticky figs 5 mins ago. The sage just sort of cleans up if you will, the sweet figs and all the other nommy notes are pushed back a bit. Like someone scrubbed the kitchen  clean.

We will see about the longer drydown
