The sun of an ancient city, rises slowly over the citadel, like liquid gold that fills the sky.
Now, the early morning murmur of life is about to burst through, much the same as Spring. A skyline that reflects mathematical magic and so bears testimony to the cradle of scholarship that is Cairo. And in harmony with the masterly shapes that rise upwards from the earth, soft female forms command the sky. The Mediterranean melting-pot is home to a thousand minarets and a thousand fragrant gems.
Damascan Rose is macerated in an abundance of woods and spices. An ornate and sumptuous composition that echos with saffron and incense, per fumum, the perfume of the gods. Patchouli and vanilla sign the base with the familiar reassurance of dusk.
I bought this fragrance in store after testing and comparing with Halfeti. Halfeti was a little woody for me so I went for this one which I absolutely... love along with the visual and olfactory story it tells.
The rose does come off strong but this isn't really a deterrent as it blends so well with the other notes. Moderate longevity - Halfeti stayed on my jumper after testing and this didn't which I consider a good thing as I like to wear a variety of scents on different days and that would probably clash. Not sure about sillage yet but would recommend to anyone (although the slight sweetness might put some men off if they're more inclined to a Halfeti style of strong wood and spice).... more
Would you recommend it? : Yes
