Freshly showered through the desert
I can no longer say exactly who brought this scent to my attention. Anyway, I had it on my watch list for a long time and it happened that I recently did a sharing for White Incense, because I finally wanted to know what the fresh Arab was all about. The selection of shops that offer this scent is not very big, strictly speaking, there was only one (serious) online retailer, directly from the United Arab Emirates. Since there were probably some other perfumos m/f similar to me with this scent, the sharing was also very quickly full. The delivery time was quite long, but that was also truthfully stated by the dealer in advance so. Well, the waiting was really worth it from my nose, ... uh view.

In principle, I have dedicated myself olfactorically to freshness and astringency. All too oriental does not usually find my attention, but exceptions confirm the rule. Now to the fragrance...
The top note bodes ill. I smell a gasoline-like, sweet wood with a hint of cologne! I thought it was a joke. I've been waiting so long for this? I'm reminded a bit of Lempicka Homme, I didn't think it was a bad perfume, but it wasn't really mine. A.B.E.R. then it really gets going:

The smell of gasoline changes towards the mountainous orange and pulls the wheel around, away from the penal transfer to the souk (department for exposed scents), towards the budding enthusiasm. I don't know what it is, maybe the jasmine or the white orchid, but White Incense gets a twist in a very special and unique direction. Here the comparison with CdG Kyoto comes to mind, which has a very calming effect with its light and restrained incense. Only that White Incense also has a special freshness. I call it once Arabic freshness. No Note de Yuzu citrus cracker and no Gentle fluidity premium synthetic freshness, but rather a subtle, restrained, light neroliesque and spicy freshness. Neroli is not mentioned in the notes, but I think I can smell it. The oud stays shyly in the background, which I like very much.

The durability is unfortunately also quite shy. After 3-4 the scent diminishes noticeably and becomes a scenttaura, which has completely disappeared after 8 hours on me. But somehow this fits well with White Incense. He doesn't want to be pushy from the beginning, comes across completely wrong at first due to insecurity, is a bit introverted and gives his all. But at some point he has to retreat again in order to recharge his batteries for the next mission.
The bottle itself does not look very high quality. The white cuboid cap is made of plastic and is really cheap. But I don't want to grumble.
White Incense is a special scent for me and I am glad to have got to know it. Maybe I'll buy it again. Is it special? Yes! But it is not quite the secret and undiscovered top star that some people claim it is in my nose. But my universe of scents has been expanded by a rare and unusual scent
Thanks for reading
