I'm a Maitre D at an upscale restaurant in Manhattan, this fragrance is pure reassurance and tranquility in a bottle, and believe me, it's a pretty high stress job. Deep, tranquil woods, surrounded by radiant musks. perfect, it makes people want to lean closer. I should write it off on my taxes for work expense. Vanille 44 and Gaiac 10 are pretty much all I wear.

Overdose of Sandalwood, Cardamon, Violet, Iris, Leather, Amboxan, Heady and gorgeous at 30% concentration, apply lightly, this is a sillage monster, you won't be aware of it , but everyone else will be. Way to go!!

great opening, a natural Neroli, however, the drydown is not impressive enough for a scent with this price tag.

I love the Lime note in this scent, then comes mint, and cedar....simple, clean, compelling, very natural smelling scent. I always get a ton of compliments when I wear this.
When complex frags seem like too much, I REACH FOR THIS.

I ordered a bottle from the website, awating a BRUTAL overdose of angelica, LAME, Lame, lame, weak, no sillage, and base notes dull. what a rip off. hope they reformulated for the US market.

First of all, why is everyone trying to say that this scent should have a gender??
I once heard Chandler Burr say that boys should wears boy's scents, and girls should wear girls scents, Adults should wear whatever they like.
I definetly get a fresh aquatic musc note like le male, and a honeyed amber note like classique, it's as if two people embraced and left an intermingling …
