This opens with a citrus-woody-(lavender maybe) aromatic blend. The cognac reveals itself almost immediately and instantly reminds me of Escada Pour Homme. There is a subtle milky-smooth texture that seems to be an attribute of the amber-musk accord. I also detect what seems like basil leaf in mid-stages. The composition remains a rather sweet one throughout the wear and dries down into a smooth woody-green base. Nothing mind-blowing, but I really enjoy the warmness this exudes.
