The membrane enclosing the heart: white sandalwood and rice milk shimmering with sheer vanilla, white amber resin, frankincense, and a drop of sweet clove.

 

This smells very smooth in the bottle, sweet woods.

 

On, this immediately brings to mind Liz but without the pepperyness or the smoldering smoke.  I'm getting more of the vanilla and amber, and less of the milk and smoky frankincense.  The clove, if present, truly is just a little drop since I'm not getting a very strong spicy vibe.  This stays very close to the skin, and does have light throw, but it's silken smooth, and remains a non-foody vanilla floating over a dry, medium weight sandalwood.  I'll have to give it more wear time.

Sheer vanilla, amber, and rice milk. I get hints of both the frankincense and sweet clove. This is a very sheer, sort of milky blend on me. My skin eats this right up and about 30 minutes of this I barely can smell it.

This is a nice blend!  It’s very smooth and gentle resins + woods.  I swear I’m smelling a bit of honey, but I think that just may be the vanilla, clove, and amber playing with my noee.

I've tested this several times, and it's just not really showing up for me. Everything is very faint on first application, and is already nearly gone in a minute or two.

 

For a few seconds I get a sheer, almost silken vanilla, rice milk, pale sandalwood, and a hint of clove.

 

Then the sandalwood and clove slip away, and I just get a thin, faint vanilla rice milk.

 

Then that, too, is barely there.

 

I hope time helps this one become less shy.

They are not kidding when they say the vanilla is sheer. It is a gossamer almost illusory vanilla that I have to look for..

 

The white sandalwood, white amber, vanilla and frankincense are very blended and I suspect this scent is a little more present in the waft than it seems to me from sniffing my wrists. Frankincense comes out more as it dries. 

 

I love the delicate, absolutely beautiful frankincense/amber/vanilla drydown but it is probably too light on me to be useful as a perfume. Maybe if I slathered?

A sheer resiny vanilla, with a tidy spice anchor.  Peg this one for an absolute stunner, but unfortunately short in wear time, even with slathering.  This is a milk note that played surprisingly nicely (usually the cream note goes to plastic on my skin). Lovers of Hod Resurrected, take note - this doesn't have that spicy carnation note as in Hod, but is otherwise very similar.
