On the rain balcony
Like when on the rain balcony of life
suddenly and unusually long
the sun would shine.
Suddenly everything is bathed in a dull golden light,
and you inhale nourishing air,
that makes you lighter
and lets fly
and further than only to the horizon.

And you know,
that now is the time to go out,
to set an example despite the heat
and say "yes" to the one that
what's beautiful about you and
which makes your heart two inches bigger,
which makes the soft music of your soul a little more audible,
what a crown can do for you,
what separates the wheat from the chaff,
which makes your movements dance,
which makes you Paul and Paula,
what makes you human,
visible, fragile
and miraculously diverse
and the secrets of a day's life
new spelling.

Ubar is a beautiful perfume,
which is like two frames,
who have magic abilities
and are able to,
to describe life and days anew.

The larger frame extends the fields
that are around you
and makes everything bigger in it, keep going,
more dazzling and splendid
and builds many possibilities in all directions in front of you.

The small frame on the other hand includes everything in love,
which is sacred to you, worthy of protection
and a little hidden.

Ubar is a very special perfume,
massive and so opulent flowery and creamy,
madamic, adept and bulging
that there is a discussion about male and female
could rekindle.
And would survive.

I like it very much.

It's so nice,
like "Bridge over troubled water"
is sung.

bravo
Look at the cast of any of the Bravo housewives at a post-season reunion. Consider the degree of wardrobe, hair, make-up and custom-spanx before your eyes. What is the difference between this execution of gender and drag? Physiological sex distinctions seem minor. The issue is the extremity of the presentation.  If what you see on those reunion shows isn't drag, I'm not sure what is. 

Smack in the center of the above gender question lies Ubar. Again, the issue is the extremity of the presentation. Ubar doesn't care a whit about what your crotch might hide. Ubar is all eyelashes, nails and bling. Drag or television-femininity, the similarity is hypergender and the differences are unimportant. 

(Is it me, or does Andy Cohen not come off like a court eunuch sitting in the midst of all that regalia?)

A Nostalgic Floral Perfume
Amouage UBAR hits me immediately as a nolstagic perfume along the lines of Jean-Charles Brosseau L'OMBRE ROSE. There is a dry dustiness to the florals here which gives the composition a "vintage" feeling. In contrast to L'OMBRE ROSE, UBAR does not develop significantly to a soapy baby powder drydown. Instead, UBAR becomes somehow more floral, magnifying the dusty roses and, to my nose, lily (not lily of the valley). I realize that lily is not listed, but that is what I smell. It could be the effect of the civet thrown into the mix.

UBAR has great longevity and big sillage, but this really is not oriental at all. I like UBAR a lot as a floral perfume, but I also feel that L'OMBRE ROSE satisfies the same pangs of nostalgia as the former, so I won't be adding UBAR to my collection anytime soon. I commend L'OMBRE ROSE to the attention of anyone who likes UBAR but cannot afford such an extravagance...

Ubar belongs in the Patou 1000 league; classic, elegant, imposing, regal. A gorgeous floral chypre, Grace Kelly worthy. It dresses you up!+5
