This fragrance is truly exquisite and while I can barely afford Guerlain's niche fragrances, I would be more than willing to forgo heat in the winter for this Armenian delight. The fragrance is spicy in an antique, sacred kind of way rather than in a sultry 'come-hither' way; it is warm without smoke and it is far from cloying. It is slightly sweet without degenerating into a 'cuddly' 'fuzzy' vanillic sweetness the way many fragrances do nowadays. It is much like the delicate scented steam emanating from a hot cup of black tea infused with spices. My best friend, who happens to be of Armenian descent, and I used to get together and savor her mother's cardamom scented cookies while sipping a nice hot cup of black tea infused with cardamom, cinnamon,chamomile, clove, mint and rose petals. For whatever reason, this fragrance takes me back to those wonderful warm winter days. I don't know if this fragrance has cardamom in it, but it certainly evokes the idea of cardamom. What I particularly love about this is that its 'gourmandise' has a strangely ethereal quality to it that is at once sensuous, mystical and intellectual: an Orthodox monk meditating on the yellowing pages of the sacred Philokalia (which means "To love the beautiful") by the light of a dim candle just after Vespers. An experience I've only dreamed of encountering in fragrance.
