I still love this stuff. Once you get past the initial blast of pureed weeds, it's delectable.

jasmine, patchouli, woody notes, amber, benzoin, and frankincense
What an amazing scent! The patchouli note outpaces the jasmine right out of the gate but is quickly run down by amber and benzoin to give it a silky smooth feel much in the way that iris does to the leather in PG's Cuir d'Iris. I'm not a patchouli fan (but I play one on TV) but I do love what it can do as a supporting role. At first sniff you'd think this was a patchouli frag in line with l'Artisan's Patchouli Patch or Bois 1920's Patchouly but it's merely a top/middle note. Coromandel is all about the interplay of patchouli with the other ingredients and I gotta say the end result is fantastic. This is a fragrance that only gets better as the day wears on - and the longevity is just as good.

He saw a lawyer killing a viper on a dunghill hard by his own stable; And the Devil smiled, for it put him in mind of Cain and his brother Abel.

What kind of longevity are people getting out of this?
Tommy Bahama. I think one of the notes is "Liquid Smoke."

Woke up feeling lousy...4711 was the scent of the day. My 5 year old daughter said it best when she called it "happy juice." It just makes me feel better when I smell it.
Even though it seems like it is bright, and full of energy, I actually find it somewhat relaxing. Not in some meditative sense, but more along the lines of an escape. During warmer months I find a couple of strong pina coladas will do the same thing, but requires a bit more planning to be responsible.
I ride a motor scooter most of the time. I get between 80-115 miles to the gallon when I do. On those rare days that I drive my old beater of a car, I get 8 miles to the gallon, YMMV, mine sure does.
