The opening is classical Vietnamese (herbal bouquet, including a hint of bitter, like in a good Italian aperitivo), accompanied by spice and fruit notes that progressively reveal themselves, wrapping themselves around the herbal notes and making the oil warm and round with the right dose of sweetness (for such a profile), and a fresh, vivifying aura.

The evolving olfactive experience unfolds over hours and includes blond tobacco, ripe peaches, mellow spices, petrichor, elderberry cordial, mint, and citrus family notes (pink grapefruit, candied orange, neroli & dried tangerine peel), as well as light touches of leather and honey.

The oil has a profile of strong character, but unfolds in a gentle and smooth way. It is not a "powerhouse wear" intensity & projection wise. The 'oudiness' is nevertheless satisfying and long lasting. I would resume this profile as aristocratic (rather than animalic or sensual or sweet, for example). 

The oil has remarkable longevity with a very interesting dry down, which taken to its full extent reveals new combinations appear, like 'sweet mint lime water' that I first noticed after 12 hours  or 'cassonade' (raw unrefined sugar) that appeared an hour later.

The Scent profile is neither linear, nor a wild dance of ever changing notes, but somewhere in between, showing both evolution  and the emergence of surprising notes, while keeping a steady consistent core.

This oil will age beautifully, and I am really looking forward to witness that.
