I remembered that you had said you didn't like it. I know what you mean about the "celery" smell, although I perceive it as a kind of bracing vetiver-y, transparent incense liqueur (like if the weediness of vetiver was removed and a light incense grafted on....)
This is definitely a strange one; it's weirdly both there and not-there for me. I especially like the dry down where I find it to have a mellow sweetness that's not cloying at all, like the natural sweetness of a fresh red pepper when you least expect it (not that it smells like red pepper...) Best of all, this is like catnip to my wife, so that's a big plus!
