The citrus & anise on top smell bit earthy , fresh & mature but wait for the drydown when cacao & patchouli comes into play. Really very comforting & elegant fragrance. It is more of a gentleman's fragrance than a casual scent but by all means a younger college going person can wear it like I do but occasionally on formal nights. I'd say sample it & give it full wear until cacao notes come into play. DON'T JUDGE IT IN FIRST 30 MINUTES
Journey starts with rich bitter smell and ends with smooth sweet ,yummy,delicious smell.
By 4 to 6 sprays
I am getting >12 hrs lasting.
Projection is heavy for initial 2 hrs and becomes moderate up to 8 hrs..
Perfect for winter evenings.
To justify such rich fragrance U have to be well dressed.
