Nejma is the collection of perfumes inspired by an Arab narrative of the heroine named Nejma and Vezir. The collection of seven fragrances interprets the story in 7 different ways, as the seven daughters of Nejma.

Nejma One is a vibrant fragrance of intense character, opening with spicy notes of nutmeg, cumin, saffron, cinnamon and green mandarin, which subtly lead to the heart of orange blossom, tobacco, oud and bourbon vetiver. White musk, vanilla and Mysore sandalwood form the basis of this unique creation.

Available as 100 ml EDP. Nejma 1 was launched in 2014. The nose behind this fragrance is Alice Lavenat.

Perfume rating: 3.76 out of 5 with 37 votes.

Nejma is very medicinal on my nose.
Opens fresh, spicy and at the same time tempered, I believe that the thyme dictate the start, with a suede feeling with saffron but in seconds joins the rose with the bitter touch, somewhat smoky.
Surviving the two phases becomes more medicinal the entry of oud, and improving with a touch creamy woody, almost camphor, patchouli appears almost trying to give a kind of tone of chocolate but the previous scent don´t let; it´s exotic but also a nice challenging aroma.

trattasi della prima formulazione. prosegue il viaggio sentimentale nei territori olfattivi ispirati al medio oriente. nejma 1 è un accordo a base di oud, secco e amaro. le primissime note estremamente mascoline legnosissime e speziate, di oud e zafferano, intossicanti e vibranti, virano lentamente su un cuore più dolce (nocciola, tabacco e un qualche agrume caramellato, o dattero) che si assesta nel tempo su un fondo polveroso di violetta (assente nella piramide olfattiva) e rosa. persistente, caldo, sontuoso. molto buono.

Indelebile, potente, profumo tatuaggio.
24 ore di persistenza senza cedimenti, rimane sulla pelle anche dopo una doccia...
Tanto speziato...Trionfo di noce moscata, cardamomo, zafferano, timo che avvolge frutti canditi, datteri, mandarini essiccati in un velo importante di tabacco e vetiver.
In sintesi, un tabacco "per signora" che non teme l'intensità.
Il profumo è uno smoky erboso come Smoke for the soul by Kilian con le suggestioni fruttate di Aziyade PdE e il soffio carico speziato di L' Air du Desert Marocain Tauer.
Non lascia indifferenti.
Fascino esotico non per tutti i giorni.
Bellissimo e interessante.

I just bought this fragrance and I find that opinions may be different.
At first I found the male and not female-typed.
It is also the opposite of Habanita is more oriental and warm it, it is green and woody, a slight tendency towards Bandit by Robert Piguet.
The holding is good but not extraordinary wake.
The way is the new black round model as pictured on this page.

This is a very nice feminine perfume the Oud en rose en saffron blend so well together. I am not a big fan off Oud but this one I do like.
This perfume makes me smile on a rainy day.
And it lasts a long time on my skin.

This is an amazing fragrance and I love smelling it on my female friends, but I personally don't think it suits guys at all. The saffron, tobacco and vanilla notes in this are incredibly strong and lend the scent a powerful, powdery sweetness. The aoud gives this amazing sillage, but makes it no less feminine.

An outstanding, royal frag, but more empress than emperor.

On first application I am reminded of Tabac Blond and Habanita both of which I don't care for. Funny they don't list leather as one of the notes. Sort of rubber or asphalt smell.

This one is piercingly musky and spicy it tingles the nostrils. It's saffron is zesty and slightly powdery but that's only partly balanced by a bit of juicy mandarin orange and some background creaminess with the sandalwood and vanilla. The caraway, tobacco, saffron and musk strike me as kind of relentless in this. It's kind of appealing in a challenging way.

I'm vaguely reminded of Prada Amber only in a dichotomous direction from similar prominent notes. Prada is soapy, slender and smooth while Nejma is unwashed, thick and almost prickly. Where Prada goes soft/sweet floral/vanilla Nejma goes heavy/sour spicy/musky/oud.

I wouldn't recommend this without trying it. It does have a potent projection and longevity.

Edit: Since they changed the bottle and the notes this review is for the previous all black angular shaped bottle.

Top Notes
Nutmeg, Cumin, Saffron

Middle Notes
Cinnamon, Green Mandarin, Orange Flower, Tobacco

Base Notes
Oud, Bourbon Vetiver, White Musk, Vanilla Pod, Mysore Sandalwood

Wow, cannot believe there is no reviews for this yet.
This is a very nice addition to the collection of oud frags out there.
Some people liken the opening to Raid but I think that's the mix of caraway and orange plus perhaps some of the tobacco. This subsides after not too long and I find you are left with a very nice sandalwood and saffron fragrance with hints of oud, musk and spices. I don't get much vetiver from this at any stage but if it is there it is extremely subtle.
The dry down is what differentiates this fragrance and is worth persisting through the opening which can be a little harsh.
Not conclusive on projection or longevity yet but I would say this are only average to perhaps good.
I look forward to testing the rest of the line which seems to become more floral/fruity as you move from one to six.
Recommended.
