How does this fragrance unfold?

0 – 5 minutes

This is dark and strong- it’s the moonlight hour and a walk away from the campfire. You smell the nearby woods, the dirt, the thick air.

5 – 10 minutes:

Hints of spice develop. You remember the warm campfire. Over time, the fire and smoke grow and enhance as you move closer.

10 minutes – onwards:

A soft, powdery, smoke, leather develops. The smell of fire. Something ethereal just past the smoke.

FINAL THOUGHTS

While this starts fresh the true fragrance develops 15 minutes in, revealing its dark smoke. This fragrance lasts 8-10 hours and stays rather consistent for much of the time.
