Not for me, at all.
A heavy back of the throat creaminess.
More suitable for those with middle eastern appreciation.
Tried. Tatouine, Sundus, abyss, and bin al fasi.
Abyss was the only one close to the fresh crisper notes I love. Too much like air freshener appeal for me.
LOVED this one 😊. I will definitely get this one again. TOTALLY impressed by your oils. I wilk never buy a commercial perfume again (apart from Chanel No 5. Interestingly, I ended up with abnormal smell function after a severe bout of Flu B, where everything smelt horrible, and Chanel No 5 was the only perfume that didn't smell disgusting.) That lasted nearly 3 years, and left me with a distaste for commercial perfumes, so I am SO glad to discover your products 😁.
There are the extremely syrupy sweet jasmines, the skanky indolic jasmines and there's Tataouine: just pretty, balanced and slightly green. It's resting on a pillowy, creamy white musk that is very comforting and not jarringly synthetic like most. Lasts forever and a day. I'd say this is office- safe and definitely feminine-leaning. Well-done.
Wow!!! Definitely took me back to Tunisia and my youth!!
The Jasmin is so strong at the beginning that I was instantly transported to Sousse, Kairouan, Sidi Bou Said or even Hammamet, holding a mashmoom.
For those who have never spend summer in Tunisia, mashmooms are individual bouquets of tightly wrapped Jasmin flowers. A pure delight.
This perfume dries down to something softer, less flowery and very pleasant and subtle. There's only a short transition phase where I was unsure of the smell as it reminded me of posh airfreshner but thankfully this didn't last more than 10 minutes.
Thank you to AKAF for sending me a 3 ml bottle when I only ordered a 1ml sample size. Very generous and very much appreciated.
This scent is simple yet complex at the same time. If you like Jasmin you will love this. I think it's more a summer fragrance.
I totally understand the fuss made about this house. I bought a few more samples and can't get over how fantastic they all are.
The best white musk I have thus far encountered. A luscious, slightly dirty, white flower scent over vegetal musk. There's an open, airy element that actually reminds me of sparkling water so the description is very apt. Sociable levels of projection results in enticing dtifts wafting from your person without overwhelming anyone around you. Incredible longevity; it lasted on me 24hrs and through a shower. Longevity tends to be poor on my skin, so this was extra impressive. I found this lovely, feminine and sexy/flirty. Amazing value for money
