You have to like tobacco
With the two perfumes Urbanist Silver (men) and Urbanist Gold (women) Al Haramain has launched two great fragrances. You may be as loyal as you like to the manufacturers from the Arab world and their often strong, austere creations, but these two products can easily compete with those of European brands and put many of them in the shade. As far as the price/performance ratio is concerned, anyway.

Urbanist Silver is a tobacco scent. If you don't like it, this is the wrong place. In the fragrances, cigar and hazelnut are indicated for the two great openers. This has something real about it, because in fact, as part of the Cuban cigar brand Montecristo, there is the Montecristo Open line, which is dedicated exclusively to the aromas of wood and hazelnut with several formats. And in the same way the scent after the first spray with Urbanist Silver, like a strong breath from a freshly opened box of Montecristo Open Regata for example, is only much more expansive and with a filigree, very mild freshness.

The cigar note has the full dominance right from the start and the hazelnut as such is hardly noticeable on its own. It brings the initially tart sweetness and nutty nuances to the mild to medium strong spice. In addition, the hazelnut gives a somewhat cool creaminess to the harmonious aroma of the subtle smoky note. In the further course of time the sweetness also becomes a little stronger, but above all also creamy and warmly woody. It is as if, before the cigar becomes stronger and slightly bitter or sour from the middle part on, you switch to a highly aromatic, sweet and vanilla pipe tobacco, which of course loses some of its strength in the further hours, but is easily a distinctive, masculine companion for a day or a long evening.

To make a further comparison, the cigar top note in the fragrance of Urbanist Silver has the pool position and doesn't give it back until the finale! Certainly, it gets weaker after hours, but strong and powerful it pulls the sweetness and the hazelnut behind it. No chance to overtake, the tobacco keeps the dominance. But it changes from strong-cigar-like to sweetish-pipey for the last hours. So at the finish line, with now only a small lead, it can celebrate a great fragrance, discreetly smoky and together with its caramel, sweet and vanilla pursuers.

An interesting piece of information, perhaps not known to everyone, is that in the Cuban tobacco factories, the so-called Galeras in the past, then also in Fidel Castro's time and even today there were and still are readers, the so-called Lectores. And in the past, people liked to read world literature. After all, the name of the Montecristos refers to the novel "The Count of Montecristo" by the French author Alexandre Dumas, and other Cuban brands such as Punch or Sancho Panza also show the literary preferences of the Torcedores from the old days
Many thanks to you for reading this tobacco related article!

A preciousness, tobacco and hazelnuts in harmony
Today I have used this perfume again for a family meal in the country. It has been a nice morning, with something fresh and air, but a lovely day to walk, so after lunch, we decided to take a walk in the bush, and while it lasted, I walked between cottons, accompanying me at all times, a wonderful aroma of toasted hazelnuts and a background of soft and vanilla wood, which made me withdraw from the world, and sometimes lost the thread of the conversation we had.

In my first impressions on this perfume, I thought that its projection was quite poor, and that for its softness it was more appropriate for spring and summer, but today, on a cold day and with some cool breeze, I have hallucinated with the clarity with which I've been smelling it for hours. A warm and very welcoming aroma, like being with your partner tucked in front of a fireplace, enjoying a hot drink, while we watch how hazelnuts are toasted in the sweet fire of the home.

A few days ago I tried Noir Exquis de L`Artisan Parfumeur and although they are not exactly the same aromas, they are quite similar in execution, where Noir Exquis puts chestnuts, Urbanist Prive Silver puts hazelnuts. Noir Exquis is more delicate with a fresher start and Urbanist Prive Silver is more direct, presenting us from the beginning its sweet countersunk soul.

Perfume that the more I use the more I like, with a very good performance and a better price, if you have the opportunity to try it, do not doubt it, because, although, you may not like it, I'm sure it will not leave you indifferent.

More in the direction of Spicebomb
I used Spicebomb Extreme as my signature fragrance during the winters 2016 and 2018 and still love it today. Unfortunately I am not taken with the normal Spicebomb (too linear/boring). The evaluations in the direction of TF had made me curious and yesterday I got the Urbanist. Spray, spray -> The scent kennste doch?
Yes. For me a Spicebomb scent twin, which still has something similar to rubber after some time (burned tires after a donut?)
Shelf life was with me with scarcely 6 hours and the Sillage is sufficient with 5 -6 sprayers and not penetrating
Conclusion: The fragrance is ok and acceptable as a cheaper alternative to Spicebomb. Not innovative and even less TF for the small purse.

Underrated seductive fragrance! An oriental sublime composition of Hazelnut, moist Tobacco, Sandal, Vanilla and a bit of Oud. Recommended!
