This isn't a foody/gourmand apple to my nose. Initial impression is exactly as I hoped when reading the notes. Reminds me of standing in an orchard in the spring or summer at mid-day. Earthy and woody with a hint of apple rounding it out. So happy this came in a virgin version.

From smelling it last night, it definitely strikes me as more of a woody/earthy kind of apple scent.

How would this compare to Blud 2019?

It looks like they're from the same vein minus dragons blood? 

 

ETA; I just pulled up Blud and compared the two, not quite the same vein but I'm still curious none the less on how the two compare to eachother!

I like the earthy feel to this scent. The dry down is more mossy like a powdery clean apple scent. It’s really good. This is more earthy than Living Doll but it’s really nice.

This is a really well-blended scent, I think.  It has an earthy characteristic without specifically being earthy, if that makes sense.  The apple is really present in the vial but sort of disappears on me when I apply it - just barely peaking out of the other notes.  However, it does give it a nice tang in the top.  I'm trying to think of what this reminds me of - it's woody but again, not specifically.  It's very robust and deep but so smooth and wearable, not overwhelming in terms of any one particular element.  I think the blending of musks is in large part responsible for that overall smoothness, it's really lovely.

 

There is something in the top or mid making it a tad perfume-y, not sure what.  In the long drydown the apple note seems to take on an almost flowery evocation to me, which may be the result of how it blends with the cherrywood.

 

ETA: it gets a lot softer in the drydown, like a woody musk.

 

If you're one to rock Dominance in the workplace I think this would be an ideal scent because it does strike me as rather more formal/business.  Or for an evening out, heh.  And of course if you prefer these kinds of scents in general it would be a good one to nab.
