The white florals and aromatics are every bit as present as the note list suggests with one of the finest expressions of gardenia backed dutifully by a somewhat restrained yet supportive jasmine. The lavender and mandarin add a bit of classic barbershop masculinity as you move from the top to the middle before it completes its almost chypre like journey to its base of oak moss and vetiver. There’s a great touch of animalic musk that brings some earthiness to it all but the notes that really stand out to me come from this fresh atmospheric accord that reminds me of the cold, crisp water you add to a vase and the aroma that’s created when the stems of those fresh cut white florals are plunged within it.
