Initially defying of expectation, with hints of blackcurrant, citrusy bergamot, and clementine, pervaded, yes, with coffee, a note that is revealed  more fully as the perfume complements the skin. Intoxicating florals – gardenia, jasmine, and orange blossom – contend courteously with a deep base of fir, cedar, and patchouli. It is then that this beautiful brew unveils its soul as it revels in the push and pull of its opposing forces, granting each of the notes its unfolding before evolving to something alluringly different. A sweet vanilla finish is tastefully finessed with benzoin and musk, creating a warm, radiating finish that is so mellow it entrances.
