Fragrance Quick Story

  • Unboxing is up.  Thoughts have been there.  I sprayed this on and instantly knew there was more to the story which is rare.
  • Usually a perfumer has hyped up there creation when using ingredients like this that I have to dissect for a second.
  • The smell was too good.  The oud was better.  Is she really here in the US?  Straight to questions I had to do.
  • I meet the perfumer and I got back this from her with permission I can use.

Fragrance in my opinion compared to Perfumes Notes

  • A note you have never smelled.  Facets of passion fruit meticulously extracted by the perfumer herself.  This is what I am into.  The whole tool box outside of the toolbox going into others.
  • Passion fruit extracted in the style of how wine would be.  Passion fruit distilled in different season for multiple facets and it shows.
  • You get oud that gives off a buttery creaminess on top.  
  • Aromatic of pink lotus transition in, Frangipani adds a sweetness to the passion fruit that makes me want to use it as a syrup for many concoctions.
  • This drys down into a spiced incense.  Very fresh.  Not old school churchy.
  • Oud continues to add depth and give off dried fruit and a touch of medicinal.  This is top notch oud used lightly to accentuate the natural perfume.
A natural composition that will have your nose brain tossing and turning creating memory banks of bliss and asking itself how have I never smelled this before.My critique of a couple changes I would never know but I know my nose wanted it.  Some Mysore, more oud, and a touch more saffron.

    1. Comparing to Areej, longevity is a big issue on these, but Areej isn't 100% natural. For what she has accomplished you are going to smell notes from her you won't smell anywhere else as she tinctures and experiments like Areej. Sampling is the way to go.

    2. Want to make a separate comment about having to sample. That is all relevant based on your likes and what you can afford. I swap samples with a couple of people who have different tastes so I can widen my olfactory senses. An event we had in Portland where a perfume store invited people to share vintage fragrances absolutely gave me a priceless experience. People brought in 50 year old perfumes that I would never be able to smell and now I call those to perfume enthusiasts must smell compositions. As far as Oud combinations I think in the next few years the market is going to get overwhelmed with compositions and it will be up to us as a community to decide which ones live on and the millions unnecessary. Sorry for the long wind I just don't want people buying a full bottle and regretting at the price points these are at. As far as this you don't have to hurry to it, there will be enough I will give a full in-depth review and score. After wearing twice the dry down is very familiar like I stated on IG. The first two hours is very special. If you can sample or try to wait for an in-depth review if it sparks your interest. A lot of people have the same mindset as you, thus the unusual for me long response:) Cheers!

    3. @Therapeutic Fragrance I appreciate it. I have to be picky with what I buy, and yes, I do buy samples and decants a lot, knowing that decants are a tricky business but I get to try so many different fragrances this way. Thanks again!

  1. Yeah! Liked everything I tried from the house. Too bad they didn’t last very long for me. If I had money to burn, I’d carry the bottles around with me to respray. But for now, I have to be ok with just sampling.

    1. The roll-on set looks pretty perfect to carry around. Not sure if its available or not. I almost went that direction but didn't want that much of all four not knowing the house yet, but would love to own more of the others.

    2. IX Lives Rasa is the longest lasting of what I tried, bc of the oud. It’s gently persistent in the hour for a couple hours. A beautiful soft oud for spring and summer. Beulah was my favorite, but didn’t last on skin very long at all. After three or four sprays on skin, the smell of all of them stays very close to skin. Def not big projectors. But they are all-natural perfumes. Don’t know if it would last longer if sprayed on skin, and of course you might have a different experience.
