This is a very sensual and evocative scent heavy with spices, leather and animalic scents. Bursts of clove, cinnamon, black pepper with ginger and cardamon could smell like rich Christmas cake but the animalic scents of leather and moss make it smell like the leather jacket of an incredibly sexy rugged man- think Dean Winchester from Supernatural if you like.
This could be compared to a deeper sexier Aramis or Opium for men, so it isn't light nor fresh, this scent packs a very manly pheromone punch.
It dries down to a pink pepper spicy leathery musk that kept me grabbing my husband's neck to keep getting a noseful which he was very happy about.
Overall a very masculine ruggedly sexy scent with animalic tones that definitely had an effect on this woman, this is so worth the price.

There's a big hit of black pepper, it's sharp but soon dries down to something really quite special. It's been described as having a mid-note that is redolent of the handback section at Selfridges: soft feminine leather, wet woods, sweet citrus cutting through with a comforting and sumptuous dry-down. Forgive the pretentious simile but it reminded me of my Dad's 1979 metallic gold Ford Granada Ghia; at the time a thing of incredible prestige but accessible too. That cuts to the extremely clever way this scent works for both women and men; it isn't blandly unisex, it's complexity allows the wearer to project whatever is relevant for them.

I think this is stunning. I've worn it for getting on for a decade and it still lifts my spirits. It is woody and spicy, with a lingering note of incense and with a reasonable but not exceptional longevity. I would have thought suitable for both men and women. Very distinctive.

UPDATE: since posting the review, this perfume has been "tweaked" and has, in my view, lost some of what made it special. It is still nice enough, but no longer the scent that it once was. A great shame.
