Holiday in the southeast of Mallorca
Mallorca / Porto Petro 33 degrees and I am in vacation mode. I enjoy the sweet idleness and have a lot of time and rest here in the forum to read, write, post photos etc.
I enjoy it, the warmth the pine trees, listening to the Spanish neighbours.
Yesterday at the pool I took photos of the Dolce Gabbana Light blue/Love is love and the environment , the ambience, the situation , everything fit together and I was happy all around.
The only thing missing to my happiness was my favorite Berdoues .
Oudh al Sahraa
I had left him extra at home because I wanted to take only fresh summer fragrances but a filling was allowed then but in the suitcase.
For dinner it was then so far, I sprayed once in the air sucked in the air and smiled contentedly.
I love this prelude, the slightly fresh tangerine, the woody that never seems too heavy, the warmth that is perhaps radiated by the sweetness.
I sprayed extra only my sail rope bracelet to be able to smell it in between.
On the body I wore the DG .
The whole evening I took repeatedly, the delicious really only slightly oriental tangerine perceived.
Since yesterday I know that the Oudh al Sahraa also or just for the hot dry Mallorca is suitable.
I had to think of Berdoues when I drove through S, Alqueria Blanca and could see the sea from afar, this moment is always like a "come home"
When I first tested the fragrance, I was slightly disappointed, I thought, well rather a mainstream, standard men's fragrance.
For me, I could not detect any special features such as oud or myhrre or tangerine
Only in the course of the next hours / days I noticed the depth, the versatility, the harmony. Often I spray only times so in the air and enjoy it.
All of a sudden, there was nothing standard about it.
I had this light , woody oriental that can be worn but by the tangerine very pleasant.
Now comes aggravating to the fact that I suddenly connect the fragrance with the South of France in the summer to see, maybe I still manage to make a trip to France at the end of September, only with the Oudh al Sahraa in the suitcase Love from porto petro

Grandmother and her cat
1. Bright, light, and airy. Despite it's a little oriental vibe, it's wearable even during warm days. It's also relatively safe in the office.

2. It is safe in the office, but most of the reason is its weak performance. It rarely shows off itself.

3. If you are looking for summer oud perfume as a oud fan, do not put it into consideration. Oud in it is so faint that it can hardly be detected.

4. I myself like Oud Al Sahraa very much. But not for wearing it myself. It just reminds me of a quite old memory. It reminds me of the smell of my grandmother's room, where there was a old-type record player and a cat house.

5. It is not good enough to justify the $80-100 price. I think there is no noticeable difference in quality between the very inexpensive Berdoues 1902 series and the relatively expensive Grands Crus series.

6. It is true that you can find any better pieces in a similar category. For example, if you are a male, I assure that Versace Oud Noir is much better than Oud Al Sahraa.

7. Nevertheless, Oud Al Sahraa has its own value. For me it may be purely personal reason. It is comfortable and stable. It makes me feel like the time I was enjoying the warm sunshine coming through the window with a lazy fat cat.
Addition: I found why this scent reminded me of my grandmother's room. It was the smell of myrrh resin used to expel mosquitoes. A relic of an old tradition that has disappeared in modern society... Unlike today's chemical pesticides, it had little effect on anti-mosquito. Merely my grandmother's cat loved the smell of burning the resin, so he would always lie around there.

spicy desert
My girlfriend had ordered me to exercise, and since we needed a light bedspread anyway, I set off for Kstadt.

We'll have a rest at the Berdoues', because they're always worth a sniff.

However - hoppla - all are reduced by 20 euro in the price!

That makes me happy and angry at the same time - I recently paid the full price for the unquestionably beautiful cherry blossom branch.

Well, maybe a special offer could go today?
Oud de Sahraa laughs at me.

A gentle oriental, with sweet tangerine parts, which has a light aquatic effect.
The myrrh adds soft spice and the oud is pleasantly discreet to transparent.
No, not a dust-dry desert, but rather a mildly refreshing oasis that invites you to linger.

A pleasant unisex scent that stays close to the skin but is still perceived.

Now in summer his statement is still too warm for me - but in winter he will come into his own.

I'm standing next to a mandarin tree
Oud al Sahraa gave me a positive feeling in the perfumery when I smelled him on a test strip. Spicy, sweet and oriental.
Arrived at home with the sample I was really happy to put it on me.
Next morning, said, done.
Again the first impression is fantastic, but then the scent weakens and that happens very fast. After half an hour only a sweet tangerine smell remains, surrounded by something sweet-spicy, which I can't quite classify, probably the myrrh, which is pleasant, but doesn't knock me down now.
This smell lasts very long and is still easily recognizable by myself 12 hours later. However, the mandarin makes more and more a solo play and the myrrh says goodbye. Overall it is a very simple fragrance which is rather light. Preferably for warm spring days or summer. The Sillage is rather discreet, but the durability is good.
The bottle I found in the perfumery personally beautiful and different times.

Conclusion: When you think of the name Oud al Sahraa, you think of a woody desert smell, which you unfortunately don't get. Sahraa smells more like standing next to a tangerine tree, which gives off a pleasant sweetish-myrrh-like smell. It's pleasant, but too weak for me. I noticed very little of the Oud, maybe a little more at the beginning.
Not a bad perfume, but not enough for me.
