Who put the basil into the coffee?

Oh dear,
I like coffee very much -
I absolutely love amber -
tobacco leaves are nice -
cedar too is nice for me -
clove is notably absent -
and meanwhile I´m okay with a little whiff of honey.


Who came up with that crackpot idea to put basil into the coffee???

It really could have been a wonderful fragrance - I get kissed awake by a divine and authentic note of coffee the instant Copper Skies hits my wrist. A hint of honey takes away the bitterness of the black coffee beans and a subtly-tart touch of wood brings the fragrance to volume. After a little while the humid-brown, herbal scent of tobacco leaves adds another kind of sweetness to the fragrance without making it smell green or fresh and the balmy-resinous amber lends a dark vibrant depths to Copper Skies which melts the perfume to my skin.

I could dance with joy ...

...but for that ghastly green herbal Note. It´s there from soup to nuts and makes my nose want to crawl away :-(

Imagine some gentlemen sitting on a cedarwood table, puffing away on their pipes, a good steaming cup of fresh brewed coffee in front of them but the atmosphere is off ... Today no good old boys club feeling for them...
...cause no one cleaned the table or aired out the rooms after lunch and the stench of pasta with lots of fresh basil hovers about.
