This has been love at the first instant, just as the first molecule of the aroma arrived to my nose, I fell exhausted to its charms. With only one spray and without even sniffing my wrist, the aroma that remained on the air, I bend and made me monumentally happy under his yoke. An oriental, woody and spicy, extraordinarily beautiful.
I had read in several places that Armaf was very similar "Shades Wood", and even a youtuber confirmed it to me. I have a bottle of "Shades Wood" and I know its aroma, so, more or less, I expected something similar, but when I have smelled it and I have seen that they have nothing to do, the surprise has been capitalized, it is an oriental much more sweet, resinous and smoky, as I like them, I'm enjoying it a lot. After this, as if to trust some youtubers ...
The start is incredibly beautiful, a vanilla ambered and spicy, warm, creamy and with a sweet floral dot, which is a delight. Then, the woods begin to emerge with a smoky, precious tone, lowering the sweetness of the beginning, which, although it was never excessively sweet, is now less so. Immediately we find a woody aroma very leathery, smoked, by the cipriol, on a background of vanilla ambarada, sweet and creamy, for which light nuances of fresh and earthy patchouli with fresh and sweet floral tones are revolted. This scent retains most of the life of the perfume, except that, from time to time, you can see, between the woody tones, touches of oud with its characteristic dirty tones. In the drying, we have a woody leather, sweet and resinous, with slight smoky tones, and all this on a bed of very ethereal and light musk. An oriental championship, sweet, resinous, spicy, smoky, and woody and leathery tones, to take off his hat. A mandatory perfume in the collection of all good oriental lovers.
The performance, extraordinary, more than 10 hours in skin, and with a wake of vertigo, at least the first few hours, then something is appeased, but even so, it is still very noticeable. A perfume to not go unnoticed, and totally unisex.
Perfume of cold and temperate climates with a marked nocturnal character, I do not think it is a good idea to wear this, neither with heat, nor in full sun, although in a very cold winter, it could be the warm embrace that comforts us.
An essential perfume for all lovers of Orientals with capital letters, is not a perfume that walks with tiny, it is forceful and resounding, but in exchange it offers you; the warmth of dressing and a very comforting hug, and if we consider its price, it becomes a real winner, I recommend it 100%.
Sorry for my bad english.
