Attention: addiction potential!
Farah means "joy" and "happiness" in Arabic, and the perfume lives up to its name.

In my opinion, an underrated scent. Halfway between Ambre Narguile and Oajan, but at a third of its price.

Oriental, spicy, sweet, but not too sweet. An exotic and sensual gourmand that is addictive. On my skin the predominant notes are dates, honey, cinnamon and tonka bean. It is a short-range scent, but with good longevity. I see it mainly for autumn and winter and it is completely unisex.

Satisfying Sweet Woody Oriental
Brecourt HARAM is probably my favorite perfume from this house--of the ones I've tested so far. It is a substantial, wintertime composition with both wood and sweetness mingling with spices and other rich components. I would say that HARAM compares favorably with some of the thicker oriental elixirs I've sniffed from far more expensive niche brands, so if you're looking for a solid oriental, this one is definitely a bargain!

I agree with some other reviewers that HARAM is not very original, but the important point is that it smells good and holds up well from start to finish. There is something both yummy and comforting about this perfume, and I definitely recommend it for testing by anyone who likes their oriental perfumes on the denser side. This one is rather sweet, so I do not know whether the guys would like it, but it is similar in style to By Kilian BACK IN BLACK, if that helps any.

A lot of notes are packed into this perfume, but they are blended together so that the end result just smells like an above average sweetish woody oriental. I am unable to disarticulate the various components as isolable notes.

Many reviewers at another site--and apparently here as well--have claimed that HARAM smells similar to Hermès Hermessence AMBRE NARGUILE. I respectfully disagree. To me, this smells closer to something by Linari.

A comfy gourmand
A spicy-gourmand scent, opens with a burst of orange and cinnamon, then reveals a warm heart of white chocolate adorned with the rich smell of marzipan.
A fragrance which is slightly reminiscent of the good parts of Guerlain's "Iris Ganache" with its lovely, gourmand opening chords, but Haram remains rather pale on my skin. It features marzipan and white chocolate, and even after one hour, that's the overall impression you're left with. Pleasant, with a comfy gourmand feel, but devoid of originality.
