Got this in my May Birchbox to try. Like many others, I was not sure about the scent when I first applied it. The first notes were a bit strong, maybe the Egyptian Myrrh...then the sandalwood notes were just as powerful. Once I gave it a few minutes of overpowering my senses it became a scent that was sensual, memorable, and exotic. I can't explain it well but you are actually wearing the fragrance...it is not wearing you and the scent begins to be one where you just keep smelling your wrist because it smells soooooooo good.
