You Might Consider
The honey is lovely and sweet but isn't very literal. My partner thought the oud smelled like camphor, but I understand that's normal.
After about 20 minutes it's a lovely warm woody sweet scent with some floral notes. The absinthe is still in the background. I do get some cinnamon in the drydown but it's a sweet cinnamon and not a hot cinnamon so it's easy to miss.
This has become my spring signature scent and I figured I should say a bit more about why I love it so much. This spring I wanted something quirky and confident and anything but boring. This is a sillage monster and it's a scent that I just couldn't stop thinking about. It's delicious without channeling any one identifiable food item. It's complex but never feels muddy.
Nice sweat honey note layered well into a masculine signature montale aoud/tobacco note.
Certainly one of the better fragrances from the house.
