 THE ARABIAN DANCE...   leather, coffee, hazelnut, tobacco and Middle Eastern spices.

Soft leather gloves worn by a coffee fiend who hangs out in cozy after hour clubs, that's what this smells like. The combo of leather and coffee is amazing, underlain by the hint of hazelnut and smoke (not stale cig smoke, which I can't abide, but pipe smoke that takes me back to my early childhood). The spices are subdued; I'd says like cardamon and maybe nutmeg among them - more of a harmonious mix that reminds me of spice bread without being foody. Very well blended; its only on drydown that the leather grows into the more prominent note.
