Official olfactive notes: Bergamot, Elemi, bergamot, Benzoin Siam, musks, incense, oak moss, cedar wood and vetiver.

The website describes the fragrance as "An intimate and deep perfume, Autoportrait is a fragrance you wear for yourself, resonating with your own personal harmony. A companion, a reflection of yourself, familiar and warm, in which you rediscover your own spirit and inner serenity. The soul of woody notes laid bare. A soothing dose of nature, and enveloping resin. Breathtaking in the deliberate unveiling of its many facets, the essence of Autoportrait is truly revealed in its silage... absolutely addictive!"

The essence of this fragrance is dewy - a white cloud of sublime fragrance. In the same vibe of Voyage D'Hermés, L'Eau by Serge Lutens, Absolue pour Le Matin de F. Kurkdjian
Transparency, delicacy, woody-powderymisty delight. Here you won't find the aromatic notes of lavender, clary sage, or the spicy notes of ginger, cardamom, or mint featuring in the other fragrances mentioned. Instead, you will get a more incens-y, powdery touch to it, reminding me of Nirmal by Laboratorio Olfattivo.

This is one of these fragrances that will bring you a sense of peace. A feeling of taking a long warm bath. You actually feel cleaner wearing it! perfect for a cold day such as today, must be also fantastic when the thermometer goes up, giving you the fresh sensation of having taken a bath even when you are sweating like a pig (I never do, thanks G!)
I literally wake up in a foggy cloud for the last couple of weeks. I wished it smelled like this!
