From light biting wind to cosy warmth
The Sahara in particular or the subject of desert in general are popular sources of inspiration in the world of perfume, as the association with warmth and dryness can also be translated into olfactory terms. If you think about it more carefully, the Saharan wind leaves even more room for interpretation, as it carries the desert sand far beyond Africa, into more fertile landscapes.

Mancera's creation has something that reminds me of a fresh breeze at first, through the combination of pink pepper with the more subtle bergamot. The top note also reminds me strongly of the scent of ginger and maybe some cardamom. I find the accompanying pungency very appealing and even those who do not like such a note do not have to wait too long before the fragrance becomes softer and warmer. Right from the start there is also a leathery facet that I would not have needed for my taste, but I usually have a hard time with that. Anyway, Saharian Wind seems more mature to me. Very well done is the seamless transition by means of the floral notes, which also give the whole thing a brighter quality. In the relatively quickly reached base, it's mainly the dry, woody notes and the warm amber that give the fragrance its real desert aura. Vanilla is also clearly visible, but fortunately is not accompanied by a strong sweetness. And so the fragrance fades gently with this basic accord for several hours after the storm has passed. Tobacco is in no way to be guessed by me.

Due to the contrasts especially in the first two hours, Saharian Wind seems interesting, complex and very well balanced - something you can't always say at Mancera... After that the scent flattens out a bit in my opinion, because the basic chord is ultimately very simple and familiar, which has the advantage of being uncomplicated, warm and cuddly. And nobody has to fear an extremely desert-like dryness. The price-performance ratio is also really good here, because the scent lasts quite long on the skin, with a somewhat strong sillage in the first few hours and a moderate one afterwards.
