Opening this bottle was like finding a treasure chest of exotic, alluring scents.
It opens with a seductive sweet, spicy note, develops into a wide, fresh, tingling deep fruitiness, showing base notes of musk, vanilla and powdery trails.
I've experienced many of the world's leading perfumes: this has to rank among the very top, yet its price is very low. My cost was only GB£4.15 (less than US$7) for the 15ml bottle (half ounce) including inland UK postage.
Al Haramain offers a marvellous range of alcohol-free perfumes. For me, Makkah is the best. I rank it far above my three other most recent purchases: L'eau D'Issey, CH Men, and Bvlgari pour Homme. I'm a private individual, not associated with Al Haramain. As a hobby, I make perfumes and colognes.
