Drooping Spanish moss and crumbling marble, sweet olive blossom, 13-year aged black patchouli, and offerings of Bay Rum, Florida water, and tobacco.

Wet:  Olive blossom and Florida water.
Dry:  The two opening notes take a back seat as the moss, Bay Rum, and chewy tobacco come out.  The tobacco smells spicy due to the Bay Rum and There's a splash of cologne making this scent more masculine.  This all rests on an Earthy base.  If I sniff really close I can smell stone.  Masculine, spicy, smoky...I have no regrets buying a blind bottle and I expect it will get better with age!

This just came today, only settled for a few hours, but it smells so amazing in the bottle I have to try it!



Wet: Very unisex and clean smelling. As it warms up, it seems to meld with my skin. I am having a hard time picking out notes. Hoping for rum, patchouli and tobacco in the forefront, but it's really well blended and I can't say that I can pick anything out, really. It's very soft. I added a dab more, and can now pick out patchouli and bay rum. Just sweet enough. I think I quite like it, but it's so faint!!



dry: I can smell this more once it's dry. There's something about it that reminds me a wee bit of Hellhound. :eek:  It has a similar vibe, to me. This comes off more masculine to me though, where I find Hellhound dries down pretty feminine, on me. I like this a lot, but am just not sure how it would wear on me. I think it needs further testing. Bay rum dominant right now, hoping with some aging maybe the patch and tobacco will come through more.

On wet, this is olive blossom and florida water. And then this amazing transformation of tobacco + bay rum + patchouli comes out. And yes, This smells like an amped up version of Voodoo mixed with the herbs in Hellhound. And really, it smells manly, sexy and earthy. UNF.


I dropped a little on the mouse pad and it smells very differently on the skin as opposed to just on an inanimate object. The warmth clearly makes everything blend together.


Must try on mr. zee_zee.
