luna65 Posted November 12, 2009 Share Posted November 12, 2009 Although this was created to be unisex, I would say that for most it will be perceived as a masculine fragrance. It is very smokey...that's the point of it, of course, but that quality is very dominant - not just the scent of the tobacco and the other elements which compliment the heart. It's the kind of scent which is so appropriate for this time of year (in the Northern hemisphere), when the scent of woodsmoke and burning leaves and other vegetation becomes part of the landscape no matter where you might live. The spices are a little sharp, however, upon first application; but they tone down considerably after drydown. The final stage is a smooth sort of fragrance, still smokey but also the tonka gives it a nice warm quality. As far as the greener notes, I can smell the dogwood blossoms as a topnote in the vial, but otherwise they seem to be overwhelmed by the rest of it. I like it, though I think I'll have to let it age a bit before I wear it myself (unless a certain Limey decides he wants it for himself). Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
