A supernaturally amplified, sherbert-lemon toilet cleaner from hell. I've scrubbed and scrubbed but I simply cannot remove the stench of this god-awful, nauseating muck. This will hopefully teach me to be cautious when taking speculative squirts from weird crap I find in charity shops...

One of the most interesting frags I bought! This is a bomb in good way! Can't imagine men complaining about it!))) I 'm a woman who likes floral-aldehids , floral, delicate chypres , but I can't say about this one that it is heavy or weird. I even didn't know that is for men when I bought it for myself ))) Very light and tasty at the beginning and the base is just extraordinary! Overall is very unique scent! Bravo !!

Intense citrus opening....with an odd petroleum, almost engine room, type of edge to it. I agree with Aramis that it does have something rather heavy going on - could be this oily aspect together with the intense floral middle which seems to have clearly overtaken the citrus opening and is now masking any base notes.....or maybe it's the base giving the heavy oily quality ?? (Wish I was a trained nose !)

I'm 2-3 hours into my first sample so will update later today - I like it, but haven't fallen in love with it as yet. As an Arabian EDP, it's VERY different from the Occidiental EDT's - I need to take this into consideration.

UPDATE: I've worn this twice now and still find the same odd oily smell to it (could this be the Oud ??). It's very different from anything else I have - an Arabian EDP, which may react completely differently in hotter dryer climates. It's not something I could wear confidently as I don't think it works with my chemistry or climate.

I'm by no means an expert, but I get a distinct feeling a hot arid climate & perspiration would probably set this off a lot better.

This is a very harsh nauseating fragrance, so heavy and trouble-maker! It lasts a lot, but what benefits from a heavy shit? sorry.
