A oddly sweet but intense fragrance which was not what I was expecting. To be honest I don't know what I was expecting, but it wasn't the scent that came out of this bottle. The Top Note is lavender which honestly, I cant really smell at all and I like to think my nose is partial to a bit of Lavender. The warmer notes of the Tonka Bean gives it a vanilla creamy sweetness that mixes with the almond base notes gives the scent a lot of depth. Most of whole life Ive never really known what Myrrh is beyond "We Three Kings" and I think this is my first time smelling it but I like it - It's kinda spicy without being too oriental perfume feeling.
Now the big plus for this bad boy is that it lasts, a really really long time on me. A couple of spritz's (and be careful not to put too much on and it is super strong) and I kept getting a whiff throughout the day which made me feel all warm n' fuzzy. It's oddly comforting while being incredibly sexy at the same time. It smells like what you would imagine a very sexy man to smell like, somewhat dark and mysterious but full of warmth and sensuality but also the type to give you a big cuddle.
The scent is incredibly unisex and definitely a bit of a departure from other Jo Malone's classics but I really enjoy the scent. I think it's definitely my personal favourite Cologne Intense they have released to date although Orris and Sandlewood is a close second!
