I have an aversion for violets, so I don't like the original He Wood, but conceptually it's interesting. A woody floral aquatic, actually i think it's well done just not my personal style of something I'd want to wear. I tried and have a small decant of Potion too actually, smells to me like woodshop class, sort of warm dry spicey sawdust. I admit I haven't given it a full wearing but on a sniff it seems worth trying and I think can be found for pretty cheap around or online.
I get what you mean. I was just testing out the He Wood as it was a gift. I have Rocky Mountain Wood which I bought myself and like much more than the previous.
I bought RMW when I was going through a "Lumberjack" phase..
