Venice - by Yves Rocher - oh what a nice one ... !

Hey friends!
'Venice' (in the red bottle) by Yves Rocher:
Anybody knows this really nice scent? There's very little conversation about this online so I think it's time to mention it again.
I've been buying this one regularly on flea markets for next to nothing as 10 to 15ml EdT minis. Until today I've been doing this because I like the dark red bottles.
I gathered a nice collection of about 10 now and I gave it a full wearing this afternoon.
I'm pretty impressed: This is a dry woody-incensey citrus/spice (cinammon-carnation)/vanilla/clean musk that reminds me of those early 2000s woody-fresh scents, but more well-crafted, at least to my taste. Despite of being sold as a feminine it leans much more on the masculine side because of a lavendery-mossy/soapy edge or the like. It feels a bit like the oriental notes of Azzaro pour Homme amped-up and the wetshaver-theme toned down in favour of a cedary-sandal-tonka-experience. There's a Feminité du Bois woodyness and spicyness, sort of cedarwood. It's very dynamic (and quite a blaster) in the first few hours but it feels not that high-quality towards the end (a bit one-dimensionally cedary), but still really satisfying. Also 'Venice' reminds me of a longer-lasting Anthracite pour l'Homme. In fact it performs better and is more entertaining than many of my other scents.
So that's my first impression.
Any thoughts on this? Thank you very much!
