Bond describes this new fragrances as a "a floral woody chypre (chypre meaning fresh citrus topnotes and a lingering forest-like base)" which to me sounds exactly like what I'm looking for in a new fall fragrance. I love florals (especially white florals) with a bit of citrus/berry and just a touch of a woodsy base note.
For me, this fragrance changes dramatically with time, and it is the later scent that I've fallen in love with. Initially there is quite a bit of the fennel note, which I truthfully don't like. But, it burns off quickly (about 20-30 minutes), leaving behind a warm and woodsy scent that is somehow very feminine at the same time. I have a nice blend of Cardamom and Roasted Almonds, a bit of the Pink Peony and finally some Patchouli and Sandalwood underneath it all.
To me this fragrance just feels like fall. I can't wait to wear it when the air is nice and crisp, somehow it seems to call for a big belted cardigan and a mug of cider!
