Hajar is a lemon buffalo of cow pasture, the smell is colourful-attractive, it is still produced
Right up front - this is a totally fascinating perfume and I think it's great. No facet of the fragrance, including the hunting, ordering, delivery, payment, catching, unpacking, spraying and wearing has been boring so far.
In search of a citrus-fruity oud I came across this sweetheart. After sighting on Fragrantica the check on Parfumo: The description of miniature golf below is apt and has fanned my hunting instinct. Unfortunately I could not find a dealer in Europe. All right, ordered on Ebay from a dealer in Kuwait with good reviews. Two hours after the order confirmation the shipping confirmation comes - truly express, I think - from the somehow Japanese sounding dealer with the remark: "You are a wonderful customer! Uh-oh! Another three days later, on my way home, I get a call from unknown: "Hello? Michaeeel!? We'll bring your package in 10 minutes - costs 57 Euro 11 Cent!" What? "Yeah, package from Kuwait!" ... Oh, so snappy?... ...and ... man, they're too long in customs! ... and to the supplier: I still have to go by the bank... "Yaaaah, no problem, we'll wait!". Coming to my driveway and before I can get angry about the rancid van in front of it, a couple is scurrying around the car, rummage between another delivery - grey-brown rags and an old toolbox? - a small package comes out, from the glove compartment the customs invoice, and from the spare wheel a bag with change - sic! Well, that was something! Inside the house I unwrap the perfume box from about 10 m of foil - and open it. A heavy, oriental engraved metal lid is enthroned on the glass flacon. I had one of these on my powder horn when I was still capturing Portuguese in the Strait of Zanzibar! The beautiful painting from the photo turns out to be a blue, drawn plastic and a kind of breastplate made of dark green plastic beads framed in plasitk as well as three large, flattened, hardened wine gums with finely needled hole groups. The spray button comes as an aluminium injection moulding, the pressure point has to be overcome, and with an amazingly sonorous "klunk" it produces a broadly sprayed, very fine aerosol that outshines any BMW direct injection valve. I give every single score from 1 to 10 for this emirate jet submarine, makes 85.
The fragrance is...a light lemon with a slight baking powdery undertone on animal oud with spice. Wow! Never smelled before! Cowshed? Absolutely! But hey - if you spray Far Eastern oud on your neck, it's your own fault. Next time, aim well below the neckline and under the clothes. Then the cow barn is like a kissing frog. The result is as miniature golf describes it (see below). The expert evaluation of this Arabian wonder orchestra on this page is as colourful as the bottle. The pie chart of the community says: place 1, woody: 24%. 2nd place, oriental, creamy, citric : 12% each, 3rd place: animal, fresh, resinous, spicy, aquatic, floral, green : 6% each. Watch out, you designer perfumers, here you can get inspired for the next flanker! Animal-fresh-creamy, hmmm, that would be something new! So, folks, the perfume here is a bit of a gamble. Something for smelly pirates It's played with the whole scent orchestra including fart and burp, but it's not too loud. Fits all occasions - really, but don't lower your gaze - and all seasons, warmer is better though.

Hajar! Your Dustymusky

Cymbals and basses
That sounds like unusual music. And so is this scent. In a beautiful bottle.
But DER alone is not what makes the "Hajar" so attractive to me.
It is the successful mixture of "light" and "heavy" with the scents, including the nuances.
A start like an orange, big balloon with mandarin and citrus. Long hovering in warm air.
When meeting spicy-exotic cardamom together with "smoky" aromas, the "balloon" changes color to blue-turquoise, and seems to vibrate in the air.
Below at the "Schnuttel" of the balloon, light-sounding, bell-like "formations", approximately cymbals, hang and play a mysterious coincidence-melody, that sounds long in the ears (and/or the nose).
Spherical, as from far away, then again close and immediate.
At first quiet, then becoming more and more intense, new sounds emerge. Deep, full, vibrating and perceptible. Bass tones, sonorous and long-lasting, but not drowning out the "cymbals".
It is the rich, rough and deep wood notes that are already in the "middle of the piece" (fragrance)
take over an important part and lead the "melody".
A high, melodic "Blimm" is followed by a vibrating "Boum-Boum".
Rhythmic in a separate beat.
A kind of bassoon gives its "echo" in the background.
Everything together gives a soothing, peculiar, idiosyncratic melody, which one likes to "listen to" more and more.
Sounds oriental on the one hand, on the other hand it seems to come from a deep forest,
in which clear air carries the sound far away.
Whatever it may be, "Hajar" is a fragrance where it is a pleasure to "listen" to it.
