Edit: got this as a bonus decant when buying another scent. Honestly, one hour in, I find this a hard wear, bordering on headache-inducing. Very strong iris-incensey leather with sharp tonalities in the way modern scents are shaped. I am aware that I now might protract some heavy flak from the younger part of this community and I'll gladly admit to some degree of 'old geezer syndrome', no, wait, I'm actually becoming an old geezer. That said, I don't think I could ever wear this to work, let alone in any serious context. It's just too OTT.
