Vegan apricot and peach leather tanned in saffron lye, post-treated with cardamom polish
◘Vereinfachte Fragrance pyramid:

Top note: peach blossom or magnolia, slightly pungent ethereal tones

Heart notes: apricot pulp, peach skin, mango pulp, cardamom, rose geranium

Base note: saffron extract, vegan (artificial) leather, balsamic wood, chemical fixers
________________________________________________________________________________________
◘Reichweitenintensität (Projection & Sillage):
(6 out of 10) medium. Has the aura of a new leather set.

◘Verlauf:
Barely any progress. Hardly any top note, except for pungent ethereal saffron impressions. Heart note quite intense, then softening and finally remaining as a leathery, peachy skin scent. Woody tones are then occasionally perceptible. Saffron is always more or less strongly perceptible.

◘Ausdauer:
Eight hours or more. In the drydown clearly more friendly, creamy and natural.

◘Flakon & exterior design:
Bravo, Lattafa.
Round black imitation leather box with embossed logos and names, decorated with anthracite velvet. Flacon made of very heavy glass, but unfortunately framed with a cheap-looking golden plastic imitation metal rim. Casket lid sits very firmly on the bottom. Flacon lid makes a wonderful clicking sound when you put it on, but unfortunately it sits quite loosely on the spray button rim.
Very nice for the reasonable price. You could leave out the fakemetal kebab, then the design would be much better The gold-orange liquid does not really match the outer colour of the packaging. Beige leather would have been more appropriate. The scent has no association with black ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________br />
◘Beschreibung:
It's a saffron scent. Saffron in different facets. Genuine saffron is very delicate, expensive, difficult to harvest and hardly smells so intense that it could be produced in large quantities as a basic perfume ingredient. It is an attempt to imitate the effect of saffron.
Qaa'ed is also a kind of leather scent. An attempt to make a vegan leather out of fruit peel could be suspected.

When judging, one wonders what the scent is supposed to express and what it actually expresses.
Some fragrance conversions often fail due to the components used. Here most likely also a question of price.
Completely un-citric at the start, but somehow later becoming balsamic and slightly vanilla, the fragrance appears very synthetic the whole time. Yes, so synthetic and not artificial, as I don't like to use the term imitation leather.
Always lightly sweet and nectarine in the background, the fragrance captivates with its radiant, fruity leather note.
The composition as a whole is difficult to assess.
Is it beige synthetic leather, which comes fresh from the factory and has been treated with natural saffron and other substances to look more natural, or is it a natural, sweet organic leather, which unfortunately has been pimped with synthetic apricot extract ?
Or is it an attempt to produce a wear-resistant vegan fruit leather from fruit peels, spices, extracts and chemical additives ?
A cream Chesterfield sofa in a room with apricot-coloured walls comes to mind. This represents the fragrance very well.

What I lack in leather feeling at LaYuqawam pour homme is too much for Qaa'ed.
When I read comments and statements about the LY tobacco blaze and then tested the fragrance, in retrospect many things seemed wrong. Just like Qaa'ed smells, that's how I imagined the tobacco blaze back then. But the tb of LaYuqawam is a 90% dupe of Shuhrah.

It's a unisex scent. As a woman's scent, I find it a little too intense and material. As a men's scent, it's not spicy enough, not adventurous enough, not action-packed enough.
In drydown / after a few hours on the skin it is very pleasant and then even milder nuances of wood and skin tones unfold.

A freshly cleaned cockpit in a cream-coloured Bentley or Rolls Royce could smell like this, or an aging yacht could be spruced up with the scent to get a better price at the sale.
◘Anlass:
Going out for dinner, dinner, leisure, cuddling, wellness, sunbathing

◘Jahreszeit:
Mainly summer

◘Altersempfehlung:
all age groups except elderly people or pregnant women, for whom the scent might be perceived a little too chemically.
◘Similare & Scent twins:
-

◘Assoziationen:
vegan leather, stone fruit, leather sofa, luxury interior, yacht, handbag, fruity honey

◘Sonstiges:
Anyone who is exposed to chemical odours on a daily basis, or works in a furniture store, for example, may not really notice the synthetic component. People who love natural essences and essential oils will not do themselves any favours with this fragrance

Spice with Orient dream...
Strong, spicy fragnance.
I can feel lots of Spice connected with oriental aura around. Mystery and strong fragnance into it, interesting combination.
Its unisex, but I personally think its more for women.
Sillage is above-average, longevity too.

Opens kinda fresh-spicy, after some time it's smoky, pretty intense, spicy-woody.
The dry-down is a spicy vanilla on a woody-leathery base.

Precious beginning of incense, then, rare 15 min, and from there, it is pure sweet delight, resinous, incense, spiced and woody, beauty.
