To me the color was well chosen. Light. Golden. Honey. Though it has incense and spices, it shares the main space with a strong honey and clove note. There is a background cinnamon note. The sweet is a raw honey type of sweet which is not very sweet. Certainly nowhere near the super synthetic sweet of designer scents. There is something slightly sour in a good way about it. Well balanced by myrrh and maybe oakmoss and musk on bottom. I do not think this is a feminine scent. It has a density that leans strongly masculine. One of my fav Amouage scents thus far. Prob a good entry scent into this house.
