To my surprise, spraying it on my hand, I was overwhelmed by a boozy accord similar to the one in Bentley for Men, which persisted for 30 minutes.
I sent an e-mail to HdP asking about when the reformulation had occurred and whether they stocked any old bottles and they never replied.
This is one of those fragrances where you will keep getting different sense impressions as time goes on.
If I read the notes listed, I could think this fragrance can possibly go in 20 different directions.
This is bold, Smoky, spicy, non-corporate, artistic, beautiful, interesting and addictive.
Long lasting weekend scent for me.
I'd class it as a smoky, woody leather, but this is far more than the sum of its parts.
I wish I could experience the leathery manliness that others describe, but at best it just makes me feel like I'm browsing around Kensington Market.
