A stunning fantasia of fiery resins and smooth tea, Winter Palace is a mythological vision of China where dragons soar and intrigue lurks behind every gate. We're swept away from the opening burst of rich, oily, tea-infused citrus- miles from both the salty freshness of a Mediterranean citrus scent or the sunny sweetness of a California one- balanced against robust, gently toasty maté. The exotic richness only deepens from here, as the distinctive red tea heart, earthy and subtly tart, takes on richer, more resinous character with a cascade of balsamic woods, as awe-inspiring and powerful as the serpentine form of a Chinese dragon undulating along the hill-studded landscape like a Great Wall in motion. As a deep, warm, vanilla-rich amber emerges in the base, we feel the true power of the scent, compelling and unique, imbued with ancient sophistication but glowing with vibrant potency. If you yearn for the ultimate combination of bright and rich, power and refinement- discover Winter Palace today.

This starts out bright and interesting and redolent of Rooiba tea, but the dry down is very strange on my skin. Reviews on Fragrantica consistently call it bubblegum, which I don’t really understand. But the more it dried down, the more I disliked it. Usually love Memo, but this does not work for me.
So I ordered a small sample of this fragrance to find out that there is a $100 version of this sent.
It’s for women but you can’t tell the difference.
So I am very grateful that I didn’t waste $200 extra on the same fragrance. Thank you sent split
