A meditative swirl of serene incense, intensified by smoked wood. At first, this brings to mind a stark, secluded chapel and a life of plain and simple pleasures. But as it develops, notes of whiskey, tobacco and cinnamon begin to shimmer through the incense, and you start to think that perhaps these pleasures won't be quite so plain, after all. If you have ever enjoyed a fine Islay Scotch whiskey, such as Lagavulin or Laphroaig, you are familiar with the way the intricacies of smoke and moss add a complicated and enigmatic appeal – harsh and medicinal one moment, mesmerizing the next. The layers of smoked cade wood, oakmoss and whiskey have a similar effect here, as bracing jolts of smoke morph into the airy tranquility of incense, keeping us endlessly intrigued and hopelessly addicted. A starkly elegant fragrance that puts us in a trance.

This is my favorite scent at the moment. It's perfectly smokey, and not in a bbq sort of way. Notes that hit my nose the most are whiskey cedar and oakmoss. If I could afford the full bottle I would grab it in a heartbeat, but I'll have to stick to the 5ml size until then.
What an amazing fragrance! It’s so rich and smoky. Just like the kind that you smell from chimneys as you walk on a cloudy day. I love it!
A gorgeous initial scent, but it dries down very tangy on me, unfortunately.
