my first review!
DCCCLXXXIX - I didn't review any of the CTIII decants from the decant circles I joined because none of them really worked for me. This my first bottle (3 more on the way - I wish now I'd gotten more).
in the bottle: fresh, green herbal with a slightly bitter tinge to it.
on skin, wet: the same
on skin, dry, after about an hour: the bitterness starts to mellow and it reminds me very strongly of a Lush bubble bath, which eventually helps to me to place the note that's coming out - violet! after a few more hours, this changes to violets with a lovely array of spices behind it.
Initially I wasn't planning on keeping this one because I don't like the herby bitterness, but I think the drydown might be worth it.
