I've never smelled a perfume like this before. When I spray it on, if I close my eyes, I'm literally transported to a deep, dark forest on a chilly autumn night. Pine trees, rotting leaves, pumpkin spice & some gorgeous woody, earthy base. The pine & cinnamon are a bit strong at first, but in a crisp, refreshing way. They quickly mellow out to reveal an elegant, soft woody & musky base. I also do smell the dried apricot & honey which oddly is not sweet. This is a dry, woody fragrance. I bought a 10mL but am ordering a full size before they are all gone. Such a unique & sophisticated scent!
