I'm doing a full wear of the Black Amber today, 2 sprays on the crooks of my inner elbows, wrists, chest and back of my neck, on the initial application my first impression was of Tuscany, Spice and either Amber and Patchouli. The first 90 minutes or so I had the Spice & Patchouli with a bit of soapiness in the background, the impression of Tuscany is gone. Now ~4.5 hours later, there is very little scent I notice, even putting my nose under my shirt collar or sniffing the crook of my arm.
I'm a bit disappointed with the Longevity because I did enjoy the dry down, even with the hint of soapiness in the background, and thought a Patchouli note would add to its staying power. The sillage was about the same as the Cedarwood Marine, ~1/2 -1 foot radius, present but not overpowering. I think this is a better scent for cooler months, Fall/Winter, and will revisit this in late October or early November. If you do like this scent, stick with the Tuscany which lasts much longer, costs the same, but is a bit more difficult to find.
