This was my first HDP scent, and a blind buy. From the description I thought it would be a safe choice, but WOW this was a total powder bomb! Great quality, depth, lasting power and sillage - but not what I was expecting at all. The only "spice" note I got was caraway, and there was hints of rose and iris - but all faint compared to the overwhelming powder accord. A beautiful, vintage-smelling fragrance, but not to my tastes at all.
