Complex is right. Reminds me of some of my favorite scents where I have to keep sniffing to find all the notes as it shifts over time. This citrus is not in-your-face bergamot. It's a sweetness in the midst of that swirl of toastiness and faint smoke. The rose is a wee floral waft at the back of the nose, with a taste that much more fresh rose petal than dried, somehow. A bright/vegetal bit right at the front of a sip and then gone. The smoke is the memory of campfires clinging to that sweater you stored away, melding with the roasted tea. Will definitely need more of this.
