Rhubarb is so sweet. First I thought it's vanila but I think it's lychee which gives the juicy, "vibrant" sweetness. The green, sour note of rhubarb from time to time comes through to give some freshness. Rhubarb is also "icy" :-) as I smell the solid, I can feel the cool waves of wax molecules gently puff my face.

When I was a child, I used to play in the garden, using white, rooty part of saffron-like flower's leaves as an enticement to catch big red ants from their nest:-) The ants liked the sweet, young fragrant leaves. After sharp and bamboo green freshness, Calamus has that exceptional, milky, leafy sweetness :-)
