i know what the description is but what does that translate into?
I hate to say it, but there goes my bottle's contents. Down the ol' flusher..zaphf said:It smells like cedar wood chips. There are some fringe notes to it, but to me it smells like an old cedar chest my family used to keep throw blankets in. When I first spritz it also reminds me of hampster bedding though.

KUJO said:Too much info...unless you have the most luxurious hampster bedding known in the rodent kingdom.
zaphf said:Spritz some on and take a walk to a pet store and shove your shnozz near a bag of bedding Rodent bedding is pretty much 100% shaved cedar and the scent of it is strong. Smells pretty much alike, least to me.
Don't get me wrong, I like Opus 1870 quite a bit.
I'm wearing Opus 1870 today. The initial application is a bit raw (for me), but the dry down is very nice -- one of my faves. From Penhaligon's web site:
Bourbon black pepper, Yuzu fruit, Coriander
English Clove Rose, Cinnamon, Incense
Cedarwood, Australian Sandalwood, Ciara wood, Musk
Created in 2005. A celebration of Penhaligons rich and distinctive heritage. A superbly constructed and complex elegant woody chypre.
Opening with a luxurious accord of sweet citrus and fiery black pepper, it is instantly addictive, reaches out and draws you in. The heart is lit by the delicacy of English Clove Rose and the evocative temple ambience of incense. The base notes are glorious, smoky waves of aromatic cedarwood and sandalwood.
Opus 1870 is earthly warmth and cashmere comfort, the log fire of our fragrances, something you want to be next to, warmed by, strangely drawn to and captured by.
