Starts off with the usual abrasive, medicinal rose found in most Manceras and Montales. I dont see oud listed in the notes but something in this gives off that dry, earthy oud scent like many Mancera/Montales. Maybe its their base. Settles to a nice, dry rose with amber vanilla. It has some sweetness but this is not a sweet scent. The woody, earthiness is there throughout and might actually push this into masculine territory more than fem for me.
Very good projection and longevity. The performs very well with only minimal sprays.
