This is great. It's a cozy feminine (to my nose) that would be great on a man. On the sweet side and a little unrefined but fun and casual. Proves that snobbery will make you miss out on some great little fragrances.

I never want to be without this. It is elegant and sophisticated; rich and complex. On my skin the scent goes through many phases and all of them are lovely. First it is an empty box that used to hold the resinous incense used at Catholic Mass but is now used to store someone's leather gloves. Then the gloves come out of the box and onto the hands of a woman who smells lightly of some …Read more
