When the imp was closed, all I could smell was the frankincense, but then I opened it and of course... ALMONDS!!!
When I put it on, the almond stage did not last and was replaced almost immediately by an incensey smell. I usually strongly dislike smokey/resiney/incensey scents, but here I have to admit that it is lovely.
Once Eclipse settles down, I get a gorgeous spicy/foody scent and the almond seems to be coming back. I now smell like a Middle Eastern almond cookie and I love it!
A very bright and happy scent. Definitely a keeper!
ETA: I wore Eclipse all day today. Once again. the almond disappeared in a matter of seconds, but this time I ended up with a warm, mellow frankincense scent. I would never
have thought I would like a scent with frankincense in it, but there you go! I am really glad I tried it. It is so comforting and uplifting. I love it!
