Ruba’iyat Fragrance Reviews


Oh my. Cupid has finally found a DSH arrow with my name on it and I am overcome with love. This has one of my least favorite notes (cumin) and my observation has been that there's an oudh meme with most niche perfumers right now whether it makes sense or not(oudh and spaghetti! Yes!) so I had few expectations. Instead I find a lush rich bazaar of notes that are warm, spicy and beautifully layered. This may be the best saffron scent I've experienced to date. Spices and resins predominate and even after wearing this several times for hours it's difficult to pick out individual notes but this stuff is wonderful. This perfume has enough personality that I'd strongly recommend a sample before a bottle--your feelings about this will not be lukewarm.

Sillage: reasonable, 1-2 ft
Longevity: several hours
Fabulosity: the 1,001 nights
Value to price ratio: very good


DSH Ruba'iyat is a very complex oriental perfume, with a lot of potent players vying for attention. Here are the notes, according to omufraP:

Galbanum, Spicy notes, Davana, Gallic Rose, Rosa centifolia, Saffron, Myrtle, Geranium, Sandalwood, Oud, Frankincense, Myrrh, Patchouli, Labdanum, Cumin, Ambrette CO2

What to say about this concoction? I find it rather kaleidoscopic, with wafts of this and that popping up and then fading out as they are bumped off by other equally strong scents. I detect the saffron, cumin, and davana the most. Since cumin and davana are not my favorite notes (to put it mildly), this is not my favorite perfume from DSH.

I imagine that guys who enjoy cumin-centric fragrances might like this composition a lot. Definitely a try-before-you-buy is in order.
