أل هاجس - The Obsession
[short review]
Note: "Al Hajes " or أل هاجس means literally "The Obsession"

"Obsession" may be defined as the compulsive emotion of having the mind excessively preoccupied with a single topic. "Excessively" means "too much" and generally it has a negative connotation that may also apply to obsession. When you are obsessed with something, everything in it will be "right" even if you don't actually agree with it. If you think of love instead of obsession love, you will be able, to be honest with yourself and make a more precise judgment of the things or person you are obsessed with.

Al Hajes contains the smell of a remote Arabian souk selling incenses, perfumes and cosmetics. If you ever been to one, and if you remember it as I do, it is a scent you will never forget. The incense, the resins, the airy smokiness, the strong woodiness, the florals, just linger in the air wherever you go and gently penetrate your nostrils and soul.
Whenever I use some drops of this precious oil, I also remember the mysterious dancing figures of "The Adventures of Prince Achmed" and his obsessive quest for queen Pari Banu, the beautiful ruler of the land of Wak Wak.
If you like a "never-ending story" in the shape of a strong oriental perfume with amber, resinous aromas, an incense vibe, and that are both lightly sweet and highly natural, give it at least a try.
The bottle is very beautiful for some people, but unfortunately, it is quite tacky for my taste. But you may always store it in the 2nd row of your shelf.

Music: Rick Wakeman - "Jane Seymour" - from "The Six Wives of Henry VIII"

Morbid flower bed
As a lover of oriental fragrances I have ordered some perfume oils from Nabeel. With about 15 Euro per 20ml even a wrong purchase would not hurt very much, moreover the flacons are small works of art from One Thousand and One Nights.

The smell of Al Hajes made me feel controversial. On the one hand, there is a strongly flowery, earthy note that appears dark and musty at the same time. The dark spirit that ruthlessly stamps through the flower bed is incense. Accordingly, the perfume will probably also meet with mixed reactions in the noses of (European) fellow human beings. These will probably range from "mystical", "fascinating", "sensual" to "morbid", "repulsive", "over the top". With this perfume, you never sit in the second row. If you apply a little too much, you will inevitably be noticed in every room. This is also due to the strong Sillage and, of course, to the fact that people are not used to such scents in our climes and the smell sensors will curiously filter out the unknown smell.

Who should try the fragrance? People who don't want to hide and those who love heavy, opulent fragrances in the YSL Opium category.

The shelf life is very high as expected from a perfume oil. So is the Sillage. My taste has been met by the scent. He seems mysterious to me and dances with big steps from the mainstream series. I think the unisex factor is high.

exotic resinous elixir
My Mother, What Beauty!!! A warm, spicy, resinous, intoxicating, exotic, woody and smoky aroma, incredibly beautiful. A beautiful unisex perfume, a oriental spicy and resinous, hypnotizing. From the first time I smelled him, he has me trapped in his networks.

Strong, monolithic perfume, like a blow to the senses, an aroma with a slight and slow evolution, slow and unhurried, but of a beauty without equal. The fragrance is a compact mixture of resins (Myrrh, labdanum and amber) with woods (cedar, sandalwood and oud) and incense, with an enormous amount of spicy, balsamic and green nuances, and a very aerial leather, like a skin drying to the air, which is only perceived, if you feel the breeze in the face that takes its intoxicating essence. A dense, resinous, sweet, smoky and very balsamic perfume that, at times, reminds me at times of a very aerial liturgical incense, a masterful aroma that is able to tear a smile from me and make me happy at the moment. Did I already say that I love it? ;-)

The bottle is gorgeous, and only for the bottle is it worth the purchase. Unsurpassed quality / price ratio. A unisex perfume essential for lovers of resins.

The performance of this beast is huge, exceeding 12 hours in skin without blinking, and with a very good projection, the first 3 or 4 hours is heavy, and then it goes down, progressively, until it stays moderate.

Its appropriate use could be during the night in cold and temperate climates, but that does not clash anything during a fresh morning.

How could it be otherwise, for me it is an indispensable. Perfume highly recommended for those people who enjoy strong oriental perfumes, resinous aromas, sweet and natural, with a vibe incensed, for them, 100% recommended.

Forgive me for my bad English.

Resins, incense, leather & oud blended in a sweet & balsamic supreme oriental oil perfume. A tacky flask? You can live with it! Recommended!
