This is an interesting one. There's a beautiful soft nutmeg accord, but it isn't overly sweet or spicy. It's also got a fresh metallic "bite" to it that's at turns elegant and brash (supposedly eucalyptus, but I suspect a large part may actually be the aromachemical allyl amyl glycolate; a key component of fragrances Drakkar Noir and Cool Water...) Contrary to you and others, I actually find that it's pretty strong stuff (I have to go easy on the sprayer...) and lasts quite a long time. I love the drydown...
SOTD: Dior Homme.
I've worn this a few times before, but this time I sprayed on more than usual. I really enjoyed it, and actually kept getting whiffs of Vol de Nuit in the drydown ( I don't know why, maybe it was a fluke? I'll have to test it again and see. Can't complain, though!) I'm getting to really enjoy iris lately, though my wife keeps telling me it smells too "powdery" (which unfortunately seems to be her catch-all phrase for "old lady" or too feminine or something...)
SOTE: HdP 1828 (I am suggestible, it seems...)
