Raghba Classic Fragrance Reviews

This is a second review.

I have not tried the original Raghba, but I notice a lot of similarities between this ( Raghba classic) and scentstory 24 Gold. I have both on and I can appreciate a mild difference in that 24 gold is smoother and more ambery, while raghba classic has more edge, more incense, and a bit more musky, although they become very similar in the drydown.

Raghba classic compared to 24 gold is more Middle-eastern.

Both are very strong perfumes and have strong projection, I would say they are 90-95% similar.

A couple of people seem to be confusing this with Raghba (original) which does smell like 24 Gold.

This listing is for Raghba Classic which is entirely different in my opinion. My review is a few reviews down.

Very sweet vanilla with light woody background. While marketed as unisex, I believe this leans hard toward being feminine.

I received this one today and was very excited to try it following the positive reviews.

It smells quite heavy at the beginning and softens after 10-15 minutes. Its ambery, woody, sweet, and musky.

Its very similar to pure oudi from the same house, but pure oudi is stronger, spicier, and less ambery.

If I knew the similarities between them both I would have stuck with one of them only

If anyone wants to swap I have a full bottle of raghba classic minus 2 spritz

Update: I found that the best way to wear this is to use it under clothes because it is too strong and can become cloying if overdone. Will certainly give very nice vibe in the morning if used before going to bed too

I'd definitely agree it smells like 24 Gold but I prefer this, it sits better on my skin.

When I initially got this I almost wrote it off as it smelled so similar and I already own Gold but I find that I reach for this so often just for the comfort feeling, plus the fact that it's so cheap I feel no guilt in spraying it!

Resinous, sweet and a bit oudy. It's nowhere near as powerful as I expected but perhaps that's just me?

For practially a tenner it's more than worth testing!

This really reminds me of Scentstory's 24 Gold. For me Gold is too cloying so this is a win for me!

This was a blind buy for me and I'm not a fan. It's heavy on the powder, but underneath that there's a sweet caramel-y note. I just can't get past the powder. It's also quite strong for me. I've decided to put it on eBay shortly after trying it :(

This one really smells very different on clothes than on skin, I mean like a complete different fragrance. On clothes its very floral with the rose and jasmine standing out, but on skin the benzoin and vanilla with the woods and incense stand out. On clothes its juicy floral and on skin its powdery smoky. I love this one. Unlike Raghba original, this is more mature and up class, although I absolutely love the original too, this one doesn't feel as sweet thanks to the florals and benzoin amped up and vanilla toned down. With performance its really amazing, when you press your nose to your skin you won't get that strong scent you'd expect but it projects! just sitting here 5 hours after application its projecting and enveloping me. I can't stop sniffing the air around me. I've already got 2 compliments today. If you can buy it, get it! Very few scents beat the quality you get at this price point! And believe me this is quality!

This is one of the best blind buys I've ever made!
Beautiful, quality perfume. Thank you for the reviews which guided me to this gem.
Long lasting, great quality and not as pungent as Raghba, although I love that too.
24 hrs plus on skin. It sure how long projection is, but easily more than 12 hours.
Similar to Dueto Uber at the end of the dry down, but 1/5 of the price!
Apart from a few notable exceptions (in my top 6), I'm sick of Western perfumes with their unimaginative compositions and poor performance combined with rip off prices. Why would anyone put up with poor performance? Even if something smells fantastic, if it only lasts a couple of hours, it's a fail for me. I'm out of the house for 12 hours most days and don't really want to be carrying full bottles or decants around with me. Sorry if I seem unrealistic, but I expect a £40-£70 (or more!) scent to last all day. Arabic perfumes, if carefully selected from reviews etc, offer quality, performance and a touch of the exotic at incredibly reasonable prices! This also means being able to have lots more scents in my haul. I'm voting with my wallet from now on.

Not gorgeous. Not OMG. There is some combination of notes that my nose simply does not like. Too bad, it had great longevity . . . all 3 times I tried wearing it.

I love this scent. There's no doubt that this fragrance is unisex and is one of my favorite Middle Eastern offerings, right up there with Kalemat but at less than half the cost. This one is difficult to find but well worth the cost if you can dig one up. Fantastic cross between the original Raghba and Wood Intense. Highly recommended!!

Just got this today. It is fabulous. I'm not sure why everyone says oudh is difficult, because on my skin, it just smells like it was made for me. I have been looking for perfumes like this all my life, as I just knew what would be 'right' on me. I have Shalimar and love it, but it's somewhat soft, even in it's gorgeousness; I wear Opium, and on my skin it is not brash or loud, just a lovely fragrance. Most other perfumes vanish within a couple of hours or smell like a sweet shop - yhew! This Classic, though, is perfection; it's dark and enveloping, warm and sensual, and the joy of it lasts soooo long.
It's not a 'feminine' perfume, but a full 'woman' perfume, and I'm sure a real man could pull it off really well, too. I know I would have a hard job resisting a man wearing this wicked juice. It's like sex with black molasses sauce.

Oh.
My.
God.
This is gorgeous! I have Raghba and I really enjoy it - it's a fun, quirky scent that reminds me of In Control Curious + oud + incense. But this, Raghba Classic, is so much more deep and elegant. The sophisticated older sister of the pair.

First off, Raghba opens with a high-pitched sugary sweetness. Even in the drydown Raghba retains a light-hearted candy note (and veers off into Ameer al Oudh territory, another fave). Classic's sweetness, on the other hand, is tempered with a heady floral I cannot identify*.

Raghba's oud has a medicinal edge, Classic's is earthier.

Raghba has more vanilla, is woodier and I detect a hint of cinnamon.

Classic is darker and more mysterious. Yes, there's vanilla and incense but there's also this 'unlisted' flower note that changes the whole nature of the perfume. And I detect just a smidgen of cumin, which along with the dirtier oud and exotic floral makes for a very seductive fragrance.

Lattafa just has the knack, and I hope they never lose it. <3

*Edit 16Oct15 - Duh. Rose? :P It's just so 'dolled up' with the other notes that I didn't recognise it at first. I suspect some jasmine as well.
