This is delicious stuff. I will say that across all categories (and my taste is wide-ranging) I only get truly excited and blown away about once every 50-70 fragrances I try. This one just grabbed me. Agree with a lot of the comments in other reviews too. When I read in the descriptiothat this was "an iron fist in a velvet glove" I could not imagine if that would be a good thing or not. Turns out..... it IS.

I really don’t care for the opening. But after it settles, the dry down is just stellar. I need to sample this a few more times before making a final decision on this one.

At first, this is clean, masculine, bracing, but begins to soften immediately. It quickly leans into a lighter clean linen vibe, with marine undertones, but holds an astringent edge (not at all unpleasant). As it dries further, the patchouli keeps a solid and steady base, quietly sitting in the corner, crooning softly at my skin. I think the heliotrope rounds out the edges on this, softening it up a hair, but the other notes are balanced so well that the whole blends beautifully. When I close my eyes and try to picture this as an object, I get a tailored white button down shirt, but the sleeves are rolled up and the top buttons are undone. It has structure, but give. Edges and contrasts. Lovely!

Opens with a nice chilly crackle -- aldehydes and pink pepper, mm -- and moves into a good balance between further chill (cedar, heliotrope) and warming spices. The effect is active but serene, a head-clearing walk into virgin snow and the promise of a warm hearth after.

Its not like any perfume I have ever smelled with pepper. I hate orientals or woodsy scents , most of the time, but this is the best in the category. The poivre note is not overtaking as it usually is. It does have a slightly Chanel like powder to it but it still has masculinity. It smells very expensive and has this almost sweetness without being gourmand. It is very light for this category of woodsy oriental.
