Aaaaah,... you're about to call me picky, but I need to tell you something about me (again). It's something I can't stand and it almost freaks me out. No, I'm not talking about you perfume guys
After all, I like you very much, I even like you, honestly, but you still drive me crazy! :D Now and then, anyway... he he he.
No, what I mean is having oily or greasy things on your hands. When eating, for example, this shouldn't be so bad, because you use (or at least should use!! :D) a napkin on the side. But that's where the problem starts: I know enough people who don't even know the meaning of a napkin while eating and who have to touch everything with their sticky and greasy fingers after holding a greasy chicken leg with their whole hand shortly before. Because everything that is touched (without wiping one's hands) gets a greasy shiny oil film and in short: It is simply disgusting, man!!!
I mean, I like to eat with my hands myself, but that doesn't mean that I have to touch EVERYTHING without wiping my hands first!!
And if you often have to eat with such people (which is unfortunately not always avoidable among relatives... :D), and they hand you the coke bottle, the wine, the salt shaker or even the bread (aaaaaargh!!!!) with greasy hands, for example, ... then you would like to drag these people from the table and kick them out of the apartment, or run away yourself, if you are the guest yourself! D
Aaaah, it's possible that I developed an aversion to oily things on my hands precisely because of people like that, because some people just disgusted me too much, yuck... says, am I too sensitive? I have tried to turn a blind eye to these people, but that just doesn't work,... not if the table partners eat like pigs in the truest sense of the word :D
So testing this oily scent was almost a horror for me, because the scent liquid was so greasy oily, waaaah!
At the beginning I smell "various" fruits like plums, oranges, etc... partly they are not identifiable, but you simply know that they are fruits. But I'd say the plums stand out the most.
As usual for an oriental, the scent is also quite sweet due to the jasmine and you can also smell roses. More sultry scents like Ylang-Ylang can hardly be noticed. This makes the fragrance appear fresher.
Only later is the ylang-ylang used, but it only makes the fragrance slightly heavier and muggier. The fruity notes, together with the jasmine and rose, remain in the foreground.
In the end one still smells fruity, but now less intense. The fragrance is also sweet, thanks to the musk and jasmine. In the background I still smell light, woody notes, and that was it. Nice, but not spectacular.
The Sillage and the shelf life:
Wow, I only applied a very small blob and smell the scent very intense. If you spray it on yourself or apply a larger amount, it will probably smell quite intensively for a very long time and it will certainly also be smelly from a greater distance.
Thus the durability is also quite long failed. Not that you can smell it from morning till late into the night, but it can be smelled on your skin for ten or twelve hours, at least.
The bottle looks great. It's something quite different from conventional flacons. One has here a gilded container with an oriental form, but surprisingly with little oriental looking patterns and ornaments. In the middle you can see the inside of the bottle and the amount of fragrance. The lid also has the shape of a roof of oriental buildings. All in all, there are even more beautiful Orient flacons, but this one also looks great.
Argh, oily oily...
Some people know that I come from Turkey. And one of the national sports of Turkey is the oily wrestling. You really smear yourself with olive oil and wrestle with another fully smeared wrestler. The bodies touch each other and you also share the oil with the other wrestler *wurgling* That I could never do!!!! Probably not even for money :DD
Aaaaah, anyway. Sultan of Al Haramain is fruity and sweet. It's nothing special, but it's not bad either. And that's always the problem. You could use it, but it's not good enough for me to be bought. Well, due to the oily consistency of the scent liquid, this scent would not come into question as a filling for me personally.
But if you are looking for a fruity sweet oriental, which you could wear in spring and autumn, you can have a look at this fragrance here. He begins a little feminine, but later becomes unisex.
Like I said, it's okay, but don't hold anything for me
