This smells just like department store scents at first, but with an added twist. Notes: bergamot, lime, tangerine, sage, mint, basil, violet, jasmine and geranium leaves, sesame, honey, leather, moss, sheer amber, precious woods and a hint of guava. Now, that is a LOT of stuff to put in a fragrance, so one is left with a complex mix. I would say the most strongly of them all is the mint, which I can't stand, so this will not be purchased. It is like a warm green floral if you can imagine that all put together. I hate to say this, but in the drydown it smells just like dirt or freshly rained saturated soil. I could image a gardener would love this fragrance and might make a nice gift for the horticulturalist.

I bet it's that vetiver again that spoils this scent for me! Vetiver & my skin just don't match.

First of all, I would like to note that I placed my review under L'Oreal because the creator of this scent, Ulrich Lang, is a former L'Oreal exec. This scent is meant to be both minimalist and high-quality. According to Aedes, the notes are:
bergamot, lime and tangerine, highlighted with sage, mint and basil. Heart not of violet, jasmine and geranium leaves warmed with sesame and honey. Base note of leather and moss interwoven with sheer amber, precious woods and a hint of guava.
When I tried my sample, I did not notice the fruit or floral notes so much. What I got was a sharp wood and possibly vetiver accord with a hint of citrus and leather. The sharpness was a touch overwhelming for me, but I could see this working well on a man. The overall effect of this scent was clean, but very masculine. It didn't do much for me, but I could see it being popular with some.
