In the bottle and wet: Oh hi gin! The juniper scent really jumps out and tweaks your nose.
Dry: This reminds me of my great-grandmother's martinis-- she'd pour a glass of gin and wave the vermouth bottle over her glass and call it good. Scared me for a bit as martinis always smelled like motor oil when I was a kid. However, this martini has been garnished with a strawberry and stirred with a swizzle stick of rock candy-- a tart and sweet fruity tone that balances out the juniper. I can't say it blends together. It is rather like wearing two scents but they compliment each other nicely. This brings to mind a picture of a Anne Margaret in a vintage 50's dress, wearing pearls and white pumps after labor day, sipping from a martini glass in one hand and a long black cigarette holder in the other. Total vintage cocktail party!
Love it but I'd be afraid to wear it while driving. I'm too klutzy to pass a field sobriety test and if the 5-0 takes a whiff of me, they'd never believe I'm not soused
