Longevity

Fragrance becomes subtle and soft at the 8-hour mark.

0-5 minutes:

This is dark and strong- it’s the moonlight hour and a walk away from the campfire. You smell the nearby woods, the dirt, the thick air.

5-10 minutes:

Hints of spice develop. You remember the warm campfire. Over time, the fire and smoke grow and enhance as you move closer.

15 minutes-onwards:

A soft, powdery, smoke, leather develops. The smell of fire. Something ethereal just past the smoke.

Final Thoughts:

While this starts fresh the true fragrance develops 15 minutes in, revealing its dark smoke. This fragrance lasts 8-10 hours and stays rather consistent for much of the time.
