A nice introduction to orientals

Sweet all the way sweet and warm like Shams, arab word for Sun, sweet with a grain of spices, with a drydown dominated by sandalwood, oud is there very soft and clean you have to look for it, no smoke for me, projection is good longevity is amazing with 8 easy hours with just two sprays, not versatile winter only or religious occasions, a great value for money since I got it for like 9 euros.
If you want an affordable risk-free introduction to oriental fragrances look no further, Oud Al Shams and Franck Olivier oudtouch “ I find them similar but not clones “ are very safe buys
I want to point the fact that I bought the same bottle shown in parfumo but there is no ARD AL Zaafaran label on neither the box nor the bottle, instead in the brown box there’s an arab word “Abir”, seems like the Ard AL Zaafaran leather bottle isn’t the same as this one
