A good initial impression of wood, slightly sweet, with a good, moderately intense smoky note. After a white the smoke retreats to some extent, and the wood merges with the aroma of smoked and burnt sausages and meat.
At the end, the wood and the smoke fade out gradually.
I get moderate sillage, excellent projection and nine hours of longevity on my skin.
Whilst this winter scent does conjures up memories of Guy Fawkes bonfires, the burnt meat undertone is rather chemical and unpleasant. At the best moments the smoke and wood work together quite convincingly though. Overall an mixed impression. 2.75/5.
A very delicate woodsmoke scent with a slightly sweet finish. Other reviews note a scent of hotdogs, which I cannot agree with. Aside from hotdogs smelling somewhat smoky, the similarity ends there. The scent is very light, does not leave much of a wake, but lingers on the application site for hours, becoming sweeter with time, with a final scent slightly reminiscent of fabric softener - mild, clean & fairly neutral.
Anosmia has hit the nail on the head. This is not a scent to wear to any social event (unless it is a wiener roast...) Of the umpteen dozen Demeter decants I've collected, this is the least-sniffed, and certainly not one I would wear. Notes: Smoke, salty charred hot dogs (or any fake meat flavored with artificial smoke flavor), and burning wood.
A wood smoke fragrance marred throughout most of its short lifespan by boiled hot dogs. Once the wieners have faded, however, you are left with an attentuated simulation of having just come from standing around the campfire.
