Genuinely interesting...

This one is a little difficult so I’ll do my best. The opening is like a sweet, almost punchy musk on me. It’s a spicy, comforting scent that reminds me of a cider. Then it starts to turn woody as it softens into a slightly more serious, animalic tone. The dry down is so subtle and complex... not unpleasant but very difficult to put into words. I’d compare it to suede, sweet woods, and a hint of rubber all mashed and warmed together as it fades to skin. I’m going to live in the scent for a while. Also curious how this would smell on a man - definitely unisex.

I like it

This one has a nice balance that I can enjoy. It's not one that will choke others around you. It last pretty long and I wear it to work (one spray behind the ears, one on the neck). Good job Initio.

This scent is all about the dry-down. It is strong when first applied and you might wonder what all the hype is about, but give it time. On my skin it is a pleasant scent but not a dazzler. I bought it at the same time I bought Oud for Greatness and that one is my preference of the two.

Addictive Spicy sweet

I know they say this leans masculine, but I can’t get enough of it! I didn’t like it at first, but it was summer when I first smelled it. Now it’s cooler out and this just hits the spot for me. It reminds me of (but doesn’t smell like) TF Noir or Frag du Bois Parisian, but it has more creamy sweetness to it. It’s a smoky, spicy, sandalwood vanilla. It’s an addictive warm fragrance great for chilly weather or cooler evenings.
