Smells like incense
Absolutely delicious I love that it's shimmering
Very pretty scent
Loved the oudi fragrance in the oriental soap bar, look forward to my next order for this
This Sultani oud bar has a nice touch of oud scent, you would want to smell your hands again n again after a quick hand wash..
This is a must try.. highly recommended
I’m very happy with the Istanbul oil I purchased.
It is very soft and pretty, I love it!!
Will definitely be re ordering more of this beautiful shower gel , it leaves the most amazing lingering scent behind just love it
This one was a surprise. I got this as a sample on a whim and it ended up being one of my favorites. Probably the most conventionally "Oriental" fragrance to Western noses that AKAF offers, Nedjma is a soft woody/floral/spicy perfume that I can't see anyone NOT enjoying. It would suit pretty much anyone, man or woman. A wonderful spicy and creamy drydown. This is a winner and a safe blind buy for anyone curious about it.
It is described as Oriental but this could put people off.
I don't particularly find it too oriental. This would appeal to women
and men who like Ysatis by Yves St Laurent or Narcisso Rodriguez. In my opinion anyway.
I love this scent. It's soft, romantic and comforting.
I first tried it in cold weather but it's best in warm condition. Lasts much longer and smells stronger.
I personally can't smell any of the citrusy fruits and the vanilla is a soft one, acting as a link between all the ingredients. Amazingly well blended as all the AKAF perfume oils.
It would work very well on a man as well as a woman. Top quality.
Personally makes me feel very womanly. Although it's soft, it's got a strength of character that makes it stand out.
Suitable for office wear as it's really not offensive. Magnificent!
Great oud blend
I have been wearing this oil for a good while now, and had some of my friends try it as well.
I love it , I definitely do... that said, I find it rather difficult to review. The fragrance is extremely multi-faceted, and not only that, it also can develop in a most unexpected manner, depending on the wearer's skin chemistry. People whom I asked described it as 'wood', 'resin', and 'incense' but at the same time as 'very sweet'. Good quality oud obviously takes the central place in this composition, as the name suggests, but after all, there is much more to this fragrance than just oud.
In terms of performance, it does have some sillage and can be sensed by those around you, but it is definitely not a room-filling type of fragrance. On my skin it last a good couple of hours, depending on the weather, and some two days on clothes.
But how do I perceive the scent?
The other day in August I was camping at the riverside, on a tiny scrap of meadow between a forest and the river bank. There had been a thunderstorm earlier that afternoon, everything was moist, and the evening was getting rather foggy. On top of that, campfire smoke was lingering all around the place. Now, imagine that smell - resinous smoke combined with lush greenness of late summer and vapours of wet soil.
That evening, I happened to be wearing Oud al Amir - and I could hardly tell the difference between the perfume and the surrounding smells of nature.
Thank you Abdul Karim for this wonderful creation!
A well balanced fragrance with a powerful sweet honey and caramel opening, after about 30-45 minutes (on my skin) it tones down en leaves a very subtle green and woody aroma. The Oudh is very restraint and plays a supporting role in this play.
Not the powerhouse from sniffing the bottle but rather an elegant composition.
Very well blended fragrance. Animalic and smoky in the opening. It becomes sweet, creamy and woody in the dry down. It's like eating marshmallows at a campfire. Average projection and longevità. Wonderful experience.
This really is a beautiful and unique fragrance. I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the perfumes I have purchased from this house and hope to try many more in the future
Sublime, it definitely is!
This is what the dream man should smell like, in winter at least. I love this scent, something crazy!!!
The fruits are subtile and not cloying, balancing the burnt wood perfectly.
This is a masterpiece!
Can be worn by a woman but somehow even if I'm tempted to buy it for myself, I'd feel like a fraud; unworthy of it not masculine enough. I will make my husband wear it instead. I cannot recommend this enough but you need to wear this with confidence.
100% love it!!!!
Actually smelling it as I'm writing, I will wear it as well! Can't be without "mystery in a bottle". 😍
I really pleased with this Oud. Really sweet and balsamic..I recomend this for all the oud lovers
Best Oud fragrance I have owned so far. Thanks for this beautiful surprise AKAF!
Best Oud attar I have known, I also loved the Oud Cambodi which is not there now, love the deep strong woody smell feels good the whole day.
Speechless, rich, creamy, honey
superb blend akaf thanks !
The beginning is very animal and dirty, but after this beginning, we can see a sweet and caramelized wood, which is beautiful. A powerful and long-lasting aroma, not suitable for cowards.
This is the finest blend of Attar I v come across in recent times, the sweet Notes, The burning Incense notes, The Agar oud notes, this tiny bottle is filled with some magic, the AKAF magic.
The First time I sniffed it I thought< i ordered something wrong as I was expecting it to be typical Agar oud Blend.
But after spending some time with this amazing Attar, I am loving it.
The thickness of oil is amazing, the projection the longevity is awesome.
Thanks for introducing this attar to me.
Thick delicious yummy Oud chocolate caramel. Its an Oriental scent dessert. Great performance. Exceptional pricing. Collector's bottle. Al Faransi has been a revelation.
This is the honey-caramel sweetened version of the Cambodian Oud. This gives me comfort when I wear it. One of my favorites.
Very beautiful smell longlasting I love it
To me an easy-going and good quality product - Thickness like honey - Soft in projection on my very absorbent skin - Sweetness gives it an approachable and more easy-going nature - Smells of quality - Yet at a very very good price that one can buy "lots and lots" as gifts
This is a very woody fragrance blended beautifully with the sweet notes, the top players here are the cambodian agarwood (not skanky at all), woody notes, honey and a complexity of dried fruits, the honey and the dried fruits give balance too smooth out the agarwood giving it complexity and sweetness without being overpowered.
The scent itself is smooth but strong, sweet but not gourmand and a bit dry, I can sense some kind of smokiness hidden in the background, very long lasting at least 10+ hours on my skin, strong presence but very smooth. Amazing attar.
A powerful composition with a strong peppery opening with hint of dark honey, leather and earthy musk tones. It develops into a deep dark musk and incense overtone with subtle green and dark honey tones. Once in a while a whiff of spicy cinnamon pops-up (maybe Cassia). Later some powdery tones come in accompanied by subtle woody, minty and green tones.
The longevity of this fragrance is great (on my skin 12+ hours). The sillage is quite heavy and easily fills a room. So a little goes a long way.
All is all a lovely creation which suits me very well.
FR: Un parfum prononcé, exactement ce que je cherchais.
EN: A strong fragrance, exactly what i was looking for.
salaam alaikum great product great fragrance in this price not too strong not too soft good powdery fragrance of musk.
This is high quality fragrance the best Black musk very very long lasting
AKAF continues to surprise me. At first I was wary of this, from a Westerner's perspective. I'd tried black musks in the past and they just didn't work on me. Too "hippy dippy", too much like an incense stick to actually wear as a perfume. This one is sort of like that, but better. Smoother. Obviously higher quality. A honeyed, floral, smoky, fruity sweet mixture that is very pleasant to the nose, and not at all offensive or "dirty". The honey note (as usual with AKAF perfumes) is very prominent and anchors the fragrance, supporting the other notes and smoothing out the vetiver. Still though, I'd recommend this as something to enjoy for yourself rather than to impress others. It's a very calming scent to be sure, but it's very projecting, and will get you noticed. Those unused to old fashioned attars might wrinkle their noses as you walk past. But if you've never tried a black musk before and you're curious, this is a perfect choice.

What could be better than scenting your body? the feeling and charisma of having fragrant body is unparalleled to any other form of scenting
