Upon opening the tin I was reminded of the lost WoS Strasbourg, so I was expecting a lead note of citron. Unfortunately in the nose it was like the chemical infusion left in the air at the department store perfumery that makes you hasten your step. I allowed it to breathe for a week and returned to it. The air had done it well as the chemical smell, while still initially there, quickly faded and the lead note of citron took its place. Squeezing the nostrils released lavender and violet notes. It you like perfumed snuffs you should give this a go, just remember to let it breathe first.
