  1. The sandalwood, amber and patchouli are the first things I smell, plus an oriental twist. It reminds me of a cross between Hui Bin Jang and Unrequited. I also get a lot of opium and poppy coming off the top as a bitter, floral, medicinal kind of effect. The roses and peonies are hovering underneath for a soft luxuriousness. Moderate throw and longevity.

  2. Plush florals on a fuzzy (almost powdery) sandalwood base with…unfortunately for me, a sharp opium note. Something in this blend struck me as quite bitter, despite the pretty florals underneath, so it came off as pretty soapy and I washed it off. I think the opium (or poppies?) may have gone awry with my skin chemistry.
