Right from the start I got a scent memory from way back. The top notes of citrus, aldehydes and Freesia took me instantly to the fresh clean scent of something like Axe shower gel for men. After a few hours I pick up the Jasmine, Magnolia and clover which turns the scent into a very light floral and spicy bouquet of greatness! the dry down of white musk, tobacco and amber once again takes me back to old school scent memories of a room full of wonderfully scented ladies and gentlemen all in the same room! My instinct tells me its more of a homme scent than famme. I personal feel right at home with it and would wear it often.
