    Gorgeous black amber and a whiff of the same clove that you get in the Smiling Spider. If the Smiling Spider is ALL CLOVE, smoky and scorched and in your face, the amber here is more of a clove-infused amber. Gorgeous. Low throw, skin scent, but I am going to roll around in this. And agree that this will age beautifully.
