Dia de los Muertos

Dia de los Muertos - This is a Mexican paean to La Huesuda: dry, crackling leaves, the incense smoke of altars honoring Death and the Dead, funeral bouquets, the candies, chocolates, foods and tobacco of the ofrenda, amaranth, sweet cactus blossom and desert cereus. - This one smells very intriguing in the bottle, the scent is kind of sharp. On me, the first thing that happens is a really strong floral scent; reminds me of lilies, or neroli or ylang ylang. That lasts for a long while. When my nose is not near the scent-spots, I start to smell tobacco & chocolate, but if I bring my nose closer, I'm overwhelmed by the floral again. About 8 hours in (seriously!) it starts to have the tobacco & chocolate smell up close, and Troll says he likes the smell of it at that point. I'm wondering if I can figure a way to dilute it into a body spray in the hopes that it'll reach past the floral faster if it's diluted...anyone have any tips?
