The notes blend seamlessly, I certainly do not pull orange blossom from this, or anything else, even. But I have never claimed to have a great nose for identification of notes. I have a great sniffer as far as detection; it's just not as well trained as many here when it comes to actually identifying what is I'm smelling.
What I do get vintage fragrance here. It has the vibe on my skin of Tabu, Arpege and pure one hundred percent 1960s in a bottle.

Spicy orange blossom for winter! I love this - I don't get the grapefruit in the opening, but rather a short blast of cumin. This fades rapidly and turns to lovely subtle spices (I get the nutmeg and cinnamon both) with creamy orange blossom. I didn't find this at all masculine, so it's unisex at the least. Unfortunately, it only comes in 100 ml bottles, so I'm planning a decant at the moment.

I smelled Terre de Sarment recently at Les Senteurs in London and was very impressed. It is a wonderful manly sort of fragrance which has leather, birch tar and bergamot notes calmed down by a light floral overlay. In short, Terre de Sarment is quite elegant and my boyfriend loved it!
Here are the notes for Terre de Sarment, per The Perfumed Court: top notes of grapefruit, neroli and cumin; middle notes of incense, cinnamon, nutmeg, orange flowers and myrrh; and base notes of benzoin, amyris, vanilla and tobacco.

This starts out with a blast of some kind of nasty spice (cumin? coriander) mixed with the typical sophisticated floral scent that I just can't stand. However, that only lasts about 15 seconds and then it morphs into a beautiful orange blossom with spice and vanilla. This is a gorgeous fragrance; it just isn't "me".
