On me, it starts off primarily a waxy tuberose with some vague cardamom and tea and moss and dark incense behind it, very inter-blended with nothing too recognizable. Unisex in feel. The cardamom, cedar and beeswax get stronger over time, but there's still a floral sweetness there from the tuberose and chamomile. I didn't like it at first as it read as a very heavy plastic, but it just needed a chance to settle on my skin.

Inspecting the Lantern leads with big poofs of the lovely incense smoke from Klosterruine from the 2020 Yules. 

 

I find whiffs of chamomile and cedar, and later, the fullness of tuberose; otherwise, the background on this one remains complex and inscrutable to me. 

 

I'm a lover of smoke notes, and this incense smoke in particular. But I already picked up a bottle of Klosterruine for it, and can't swing a second.
