It's definitely a very interesting scent that evokes sensual memories of more than one lifetime. The initial impression was of freshly laid tarmac on a hot summer's day and the quick thought that maybe I'd made a mistake. But patience allowed it to evolve on my skin to the delicious memory of early morning armpit smell of the wealthy Asian lover I had years ago.
It feels royal and incredibly well crafted.
It’s very flattering
Love the element of leather in it
500 Years is warm, spicy, and sweet. It has a good sillage and excellent staying power. I wouldn't have necessarily picked out chocolate or roses in the notes, but the cardamom and saffron are present. Overall, this is a nice spicy scent for cooler weather. Leans feminine, in my opinion, but could be unisex.
Unique with a pleasant dominant scent that i notice off and on throughout the day. I like that, figure others might too!
