In the imp: Hmm...Vaguely nuttish, maybe like acorn powder? But also with a slight almost alcohol tang. It reminds me of almond extract without actually smelling like almond extract. And yes, I know how confusing that sounds.
Wet on skin: Rich and a little spicy. There's a lot of top note herbs going on, but the base has an almost buttery smell/feel to it. There's something a bit high and sweet in there too. Maybe vanilla? Or could that be sap?
Early dry down (10 minutes): Sweet, with a rich, deep base that is still a bit buttery, developing some powdery in the top notes.There's a spice in there that reminds me of the inside of the Indian grocer I used to frequent in Boston. All if that said, the first sniff says "men's cologne" to me. The nuances only emerge upon directed sniffing,
Late dry down (about an hour): Sort of powdery, spicy vanilla with a little something nutty under it. This does not have great staying powder on me at all, but it's pretty. I think it may be a nice mild scent for the days when I don't feel like a patchouli fiend. I kind of wish I'd gotten a bottle...
