Barrel-aged whiskey and oak.
The smell of whiskey is so strong in the bottle, it makes me want to go to the nearest pub and slug back a few. However, once on me, it quickly dies down and I get another woodsy smell. I couldn't pin it until I visited this forum and some people said it seemed like woodsmoke. I'm inclined to agree; it's like sitting in front of a fireplace. I'm getting a sort of sweetness from this too; oddly enough, I want to say it's like maple syrup! It may be the combination of whiskey and woodsmoke with my skin chemistry, but it's definitely akin to maple syrup. I wonder if anyone else is getting that. Altogether, I really like it. It's a sweet, comfortable scent.
