It's very unique. At first, I thought it was overwhelmingly spicy. Seems to have a top note of cinnamon. After about 15 minutes, it dried down to a very pleasant spicy, gourmandy, woody smell. I can definitely smell a sugary amber. Might even have caramel as another reviewer noted. It's not for everyone but as someone who's always on the hunt for unique scents, this one takes the cake. Would love to wear this in the winter on a date. The name and color assigned to it is very appropriate.
