This is such a weird fragrance for me. When I first sampled it I wasn't even sure I liked it. It was mostly dry woods rounded out with a somewhat modest amount of clear vanilla extract. But I kept going back to it and kept almost craving it and here we are, with a heavily used full bottle that continues to smell better every time I wear it. I can't account for this. I think it may have had to do with how much I was applying. The more restrained I am in application. e.g. 1-2 spritzes, the dryer and less interesting this seems to smell. If I spray 6-8 times then this seems to develop a lot more. It wears extremely close to the skin so 6-8 sprays really isn't overdoing it. I can tell you that at this point Nirvana Bourbon smells of rich, creamy, vanilla and woods. It has a boozy quality to it and is sweet in a boozy way; like a spiced rum and coke verging on root beer (but without any trace of powder that most root beerish fragrances seem to have). It's not as dry anymore but is now only occasionally dry, like walking through a forest right before the weather turns and stepping on the occasional dry twig. Longevity is 10+ hours when using 6-8 spritzes, otherwise it just disappears on me.
