It opens with a pungent combo of cumin and chili pepper leaves. The cumin is earthy, warm and animatic. It can easily overtake a fragrance, but the chili pepper leaves add a botanical dimension that smooths and checks the "sweaty" aspect of cumin. This stage smells like rain-soaked skin at the end of a long day, making the fragrance slyly seductive.
As it blooms, juniper appears and adds a balsamy, sharp freshness that contrasts the top notes's earthiness.
Cedarwood is right behind the juniper, at the base, it's woody and slightly sweet.
This is not the smell of wood in a forest. This is the smell of wood that is been cut to make trim in windows and doorways. A note of tree moss evokes a feeling of humidity in the air after a downpour.
