Baraka. I don't know what you mean by that (well, a baraka is a blessing in the Islamic faith), but something completely different comes to mind. Something that underlines my nerd existence here once again with a thick (and NOT water soluble) felt-tip pen. Cause it's something from a video game. Or rather, a character from a video game. And a quite brutal fighting game in which limbs and innards fly through the area... :D
Baraka, from Mortal Kombat. A character with razor-sharp teeth in his mouth and long blades on his wrists, making him one of the deadliest characters in the game. A bad guy you'd rather not meet in the dark. Well, not even during the day. Oh, you just have to google him, then you know what I mean :D
But all this probably doesn't interest you, especially if I write that Mortal Kombat is not only a video game, but one of the most ultra-brutal fighting games ever... but even if I know this series (and therefore know some characters with names...) and have gambled I'm still really dear and not a brutally disturbed psychopath... but never anyone *sigh*
Perhaps it will help if I mention that my hangover is many times more brutal than I am? D
Well, then I'll come to the scent,... and finally stop calling me a freak, because I know for a fact that you did this all the time while reading my introduction... *sigh*
The fragrance begins with musk and smells accordingly sweet. But I also smell tobacco and fruity notes in the top note, which are strangely not listed here.
In addition to the musk, one also smells a strong, woody note, which over time turns out to be more and more sandalwood.
A little later musk and sandalwood smell stronger. Vanilla is now also added, making the fragrance even sweeter and giving it soft, powdery notes.
I continue to smell sandalwood and sweet notes later, with the sweetness coming more from the vanilla, but you can still smell the musk a little. And this feeling with the fruity notes as well as the tobacco remains with me furthermore...
The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is strong, you can smell the scent for a while on normal and even bigger distances, because you leave a nice, bigger scent cloud behind. It is therefore better not to overdo the dosage.
The durability is also quite good. There are certainly more than twelve hours in it, so you don't have to worry that the fragrance will eventually no longer be smellable for others.
The bottle is black and rectangular. On the front you can see a diamond-shaped label or plaque with beautiful, curved and red patterns. The lid is black and rectangular. On the top of the lid, a chrome-plated badge has been affixed showing the name and the stamp. Looks pretty nice.
Baraka from Initio...
Yes, I'm thinking here of this character described in the introduction, which I don't even like by the way. And now I have to think of the fact that a hot girl from this series of games also has characteristics of Baraka's people, ... Mileena ... arrrrr, ... she already looks hot, ... if only she didn't have that mouth with razor sharp teeth, mu ha ha ha!
Argh, I seem to be really desperate to find her hot *sigh* :DD
Be that as it may, the fragrance on the other hand is somehow beautifully soft, although it is already very woody. But the combination of musk and sandalwood works wonderfully. Normally I would say that the fragrance is unisex, but the vanilla that comes a little later makes the fragrance quite feminine in the end.
Due to its strong sillage and the nice scent, it is very suitable for going out, especially in autumn, because vanilla is not suitable for summer. Yes, the fragrance is beautiful and worth testing!
