BPAL: Sillk Road

Silk Road

A panoply of cultural treasures, spanning the herbs, flowers, oils and balms of the Romans, the Byzantines, the Mediterranean, the Levant, Northern China, Eastern Europe, Iran, the Bulgar-Kypchak, Mesopotamia, the Crimean Peninsula, Anatolia, Antioch, and North Africa.

In the vial: Citrusy, but not strongly lemon or orange or anything like that; gently astringent, like an expensive mens' soap.

Wet: Still citrus, and slightly incensey as well. Can't pick out individual elements.

Drydown: Dried quickly. More like a rich, blended perfume now, and smells more spicy. Incense smell is sharp for a bit, then citrus returns, and back and forth.

An interesting one. Possibly too complex for my tastes in everyday perfume wear. I don't think it's me, it's more some woman in a designer sari.
