Not sure how to perceive this one
On paper, this was one of my favorite scents in the Goldfield & Banks discovery kit. However, on my skin it seems to be doing something odd. I loved the opening, it was a blast of spicy resinous perfection. But the dry-down has taken on an almost medicinal turn. It must be the cardamom reminding me a bit of black licorice. I can't get past that strong herbal note that seems to cling to my skin and clear my sinuses like vapo-rub. It's not entirely unpleasant, just different. I think it may just be my body chemistry and I would likely enjoy this more on someone else.
