I recevied a sample of this in the October box and as soon as I opened the box, I could smell it, though it was faint. But when I opened the small vial, oh boy. It was definitely not for me. It was overwhelming, heavy, spicy, and frankly, I felt it was gross. I immediately through it away. To put this in perspective, though, I typically like sweet or rich florals, like jasmine and tuberose, or fresh scents, like grass and tomato leaves. So I think this was just way too left-field for me. But if you like warmer, spicy, musky scents, you might like the Winter Woods from Clean.
