The dark purple rose of Cairo
[short review]
I like (very) dark, spicy & woody perfumes. If a bit of animalic leather is added, better still. The rose note is also wellcome but only if it's a dark animalic one... like the one you may smell in Mancera's Black Line.
I really like this fragrance. You get spices, a wonderfull dracula rose seasoned with dark leather, and a great balsamic gaiac with a bit of santal for the drydown. This scent that is amazingly blended and gives you a very smooth development. It has the one of the most pleasant rose note that I've ever smelled. It's smoother than my rose references, namely the rose in Oud Ispahan or in Qasamat Morhaf.
Browsing by the ratings given so far to this perfume I can only conclude that it's not really a popular scent. What a pity... as I really really like it. That's our right to be different.
The performance is great, and the ladies seem to like it a lot. It will be one of my picks for the upcomming Winter for sure.

Dark...darker...darkest... Rosewood
...I ever smelled... Hidden in the depth it was so far, the "darkest" scent of roses I smelled (so far).
Until a souk offer came up, carefully asking if the smell of the fragrance was too sweet. Express denial. Answer: "not sweet... dark... woody --"
I agreed to purchase, with information THIS PAGE I was very confident, along with the info from A. who sold the fragrance, even surely, because A, had just smelled the fragrance herself and can rely on her judgment...
A wave of spices...from cardamom to pepper to clove to coriander and anything else, hides for a short time the true nature of the scent from all too hasty-impatient noses, who want to get to the point right away-.
And even the top note can't wait to love a fragrance or demonize it right away. (these "candidates" usually don't even get to know the scent as a whole)
This Mancera needs a few minutes of patience before it turns dark red, rose ink
peels out and delights the nose.
In addition, there are equally "inky" ingredients such as patchouli and birch tar, "opaque" cistus and smoky elements.
Everything comes apparently crept up from deep, overcast and moonless night, overwhelming, touching and wrapped in silence.
Only thoughts seem to flow over it, soundless, fascinating images by imaginative artists.
Pictures of bizarre landscapes, gnarled trunks of old trees shaped like wind whipped.
Dark and rich the colors, with few, but all the more striking red flowers as contrast.
The dark gujak woods creak in thoughts, although no sound can be heard.
It is as if the buds of the purple roses opened with a soft "pfffssst"...
to blossom and remain so forever without withering.
I have now entered this "landscape", and don't like to go out here anymore.
Because maybe the way is still exciting to the real end of "Black Line"
I would like to be there until dawn...

Mancera proposes a very dark rose, an almost gothic but alluring rose wrapped in black leather. There is no agar wood and I don't miss it.+3
