The poor man exquisite Oriental scent
In a sunny, cold and dry day like today, it was necessary to use an oriental perfume, preferably hot, humid and sweet. The choice fell on yet another Arabian perfume, in this case an Al Haramain. Urbanist Privé is a frankly interesting perfume and of a quality well above average. The price is inversely proportional to the quality, as this perfume can be bought for around 20 Euros.
The fragrance gives an impression of warmth and comfort associated with a certain lightness. The airy smoke of light oud, the warm lingering of sandalwood and hazelnut, the wrapping of moist tobacco and the sweetness of honey and vanilla make an ideal combination for a dry winter day that pushes people into a fireplace. The global aroma is quite consensual, suitable for a wide audience and, as it is not a blunt fragrance, it does not hurt the sensitivity of oriental perfumes detractors.
I must mention that it is an excellent choice for sandalwood lovers... it is the perfume strongest note, and it is of excellent quality.
Although it doesn't seem like an attempt to clone, Urbanist Privé is really VERY similar to Spicebomb, although it is less intrusive. Spicebomb does not have sandalwood, but its strong cinnamon note with leather and moist tobacco, projects a woody accord similar to sandalwood. Urbanist Privé does not have cinnamon, but the combination of hazelnut and sandalwood notes, moist cigar tobacco and a touch of oud, delivers a strong impression of cinnamon and completely mimicking Spicebomb. Aromatically the two perfumes are very close. Unfortunately I prefer the Spicebomb intrusiveness, but of course, for a price.
Spicebomb being a fragrance reasonably far removed from Noir Exquis, this Al Haramain invokes the dark ebony tonic of this L'Artisan, perhaps due to the impression left by the notes of moist tobacco, the strong sandalwood, and the dark hint of oud.
Although sober, the presentation is poor for those who like beautiful bottles. This is yet another oriental marketing disaster. It looks like an Axe bottle. Nevertheless the perceived value for money is quite high provided you don't care about the deodorant presentation.
The performance is sufficient, although below normal for this type of spicy and woody oriental perfume. Longevity lies between 6 and 7 hours with three sprays. The sillage is positioned at approximately 1 meter with an acceptable projection during the first hour and a half.

How can this fine "Oriental scent for the masses" be rated?
___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___
- Opening: 8.5 (Hazelnut and sandalwood imediate lingering)
- DryDown: 8.0 (Nice vanilla and honey sweetness on a pair with the wood scents)
- Longevity: 7.0 (less than 7 hours)
- Sillage: 6.0 (Up to 4 feet; it projects for 1.5 hours)
- Uniqueness: 7.5 (it does ressemble Spicebomb without its agressiveness)
- Usability: 7.0 (Mainly an cold weather fragrance)
- Versatility: 7.5 (general daily outdoor wear or to use in front of the fireplace)
- Compliments: 7.0 (Better than the average oriental arabian woody, smoky and spicy fragrance)
- Quality: 7.5 (average quality ingredients, with a high mark for the sandalwood)
- Presentation: 6.0 (sober acceptable presentation but resembling a deodorant flask)
- Price: 9.0 (100 ml / 20 Euros with web providers)
___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___ ___
Overall rating: 7.36 / 10.00
- between 7 and 8 = above average;
- between 8 and 9 = recommended;
- greater than 9 = do not miss;

Recommendation: An "all around" oriental perfume with a bit of oudy smokiness and a top sandalwood. If you fancy a discrete arabian perfume, go for it..
Blind buy? Why not, bearing in mind the low price. Getting a decant may cost you more...

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!
