Hot dough and smoke with spices
[short review]

This Arabic smoke, together with Étui Noir, make a portentous Miller Harris duo.
1- La Fumée Arabie opens with warm, woody, deep cistus seasoned with fleshy and deep cumin. I happen to love cumin both in my perfumes and in my cooking.
2 - Then smoked incense becomes prominent, unveiling a woody scent with hints of oud, some burnt rubber and some spicy smoky ash. The scent is sweetened by a touch of vanilla.
3 - The dry down is quite long, very smooth and seductive as hell.

Performance is above average. The projection is reasonable. Some caution is needed with the trigger because not everyone enjoys company smelling too much of oud, incense and smoky ashes.
I highlight this review a little by mentioning the aromas of hot dough and smoke with spices, this perfume always brings to my imagination the scent of a Christmas dried fruit cake slice, with whirls of cinnamon and cloves, and of course, with a woody and incense smoke coming from a fireplace. Perhaps only one slice of this Christmas cake is not the right amount.
In short, it is a hot, sensual fragrance, and more masculine than a unisex perfume. But it is a season's greeting scent as well. It really fills me up :-)

Merry Christmas to everybody!

Elective associations in Rauchig
Nope, it doesn't matter that I'm now the third!!! smoky Miller Harris call my own.
They're all wonderful. The "normal" La Fumee in Stark, the Ottoman and now also the Arab.
The latter is the most persevering, I think. And the spiciest. And the darkest one, cistiest from the rose of the same name (which has nothing to do with THE roses as such) and "inky" from birch tar, which as such intensifies the smoky note.
And resinous - balsamic by myrrhe-like nuances, as they occur in real smoking in a bowl.
And "real" roses always come into play when I think the "smokiest part" of the fragrance has now arrived in my nose. A little bit later they appear briefly, but clearly, and then go back to "lurking position".
The scent then leads me word-for-word around my nose with relish.
And, how could it be otherwise, the "Ur-La Fumee" is also in here. With exactly the "manners" that my pre-writers have already mentioned.
And yet it is an independent perfume that, compared directly with "La Fumee", has its own personal fragrance without wanting to deny its "ancestor (mother)".
They are cousins of the first degree, even if one is "blond" and the other is dark brown, and the third has "black curls".
Oh, the cedar in "La Fumée Arabie" is a clear distinguishing feature, because it does not occur in the "election relatives".
And it does it almost like the already mentioned rose does, by appearing lifelike again and again when I expect something completely different.
The scent is probably a "little rogue", even if it is quite a delicious one....

La Fumee with a twist...
This is a really great incense fragrance. Like La Fumee before this, it is an labdanum and incense combination which is a winner.

The fragrance itself is dry and full of depth. The cardamom and dry cedar, coriander and other "dry" ingredients really add to this composition. To put it this way, this perfume definitely has a "mood" about it. It is a concept perfume which is designed to transport you into a world. A world of candles and spices and woods and mystery. It is incredibly evocative. I do like it very much.

Sadly, the downside to this one is that it does smell quite similar to the original La Fumee. Because of that, if this one costs more (reportedly) then I would have to suggest buying the original. The only discernible difference here is that (to me) it is more woody. There is a heavier emphasis here on the dryness of the woods than anything else. If you want the original with more of a dry, woody vibe, this is for you. However the original, with it's sweet, dry ambery incense balance is still the original benchmark, and a "classic" in it's own right. Still, this just goes to show, Miller Harris rarely does a bad perfume. Extremely high quality stuff here. Perfume as artistic expression.
