A treasure of pure Arab gold
There is one thing in the Lattafa perfumes that has me crazy. These perfumes are cheap enough for the oud they contain to be synthetic, but I do not know how they do it, because the smell they give off is very close to the natural one. I have smelled lots of perfumes with synthetic oud, and there is a difference compared to the natural one, so I do not know what magic formula they use, but it is super accomplished.

The beginning of this perfume is a mixture of oud, rose and saffron, which is dirty and animalic, but of a singular beauty and little seen and appreciated by these parts, so, for the noses, unaccustomed to these raw aromas, It can be a very complex challenge. After a few minutes, this initial animalic dirt settles, and offers us a dry and spicy woody fragrance, with a green rose note, more similar to the tone of the geranium than to the rose itself, but equally beautiful in the composition. Slowly, to this aroma, described above, it begins to add a slight sweet and smoky tone, which makes the rose lose that green hue and feel a warmer and creamier aroma, in which the woods begin to claim their prominence. From here, the aroma is an elixir of woods, leather, amber and vanilla, a creamy aroma, warm, a dirty little and with a very slight rose and musky, precious. It is an almost sweet fragrance, of vanilla and ambarade woods with shades of leather and musk and a floral touch, which, personally, I am very fond of, although I must admit that it is a very arabesque aroma, and not suitable for all world, but if you know how to see over obsolete stereotypes, it is a magnificent perfume.

The performance of this monster is amazing, staying in skin more than 12 hours with ease, with a brutal wake the first hours of life, then decays to moderate, and then progressively down to the end.

It is the perfume of cold and temperate climates and nocturnal, I do not think it is a good idea to use this in summer, it could saturate easily.

I think it is very good perfume and highly recommended, but I also recognize that it is not a perfume for everyone, so, if you are interested or you are pricked by curiosity, try it before, because it has a very arabesque DNA and not very taste Western, so, people who usually use expressions of the type ... "Stinks of Moor" "Smells like souk that throws back" etc etc ... get away from this perfume, because it is not for you. This is a perfume of people with broad views, and minds over cloistered stereotypes.

Sorry for my bad english.

Pure Gold
Here we have the thick, creamy oud-musk of Montale's Aoud Musk. Just as present is the sweet bakhoor of 24 Gold and snapshots of Nasomotto's Black Afghano. But here's the prize and the kicker; these three taken together form a near facsimile of the heavy, almost chocolatey spiced wood and oud of 24 Gold Oud Edition, that worthy flanker to the original 24 Gold. So. The similarity in names as well as notes begs the question: is someone intentionally copying? If so, who is copying who, and how much does it matter if they are both lesser-known brands deserving of praise, both releasing fragrances easily worth twice, three times their price?

My only criticism is that 24 Carat Pure Gold can be a little rough around the edges. The oud hits harder in the opening, unbridled and unashamed. For me this was ultimately forgiveable, possibly even admirable in the way that the lumps and fibres in handmade parchment add character. There are no pulled punches, no hidden currents; this is a strong, deep, linear perfume and a few sprays will radiate beyond arm's length and last a full day.

Oud, Amber & Incense, and a good blending. Saffron, Rose and Vanilla add the necessary floral & touch. It's a near mastepiece worth owning.
