Very nice, sweet and spicy resinous mix with floral touches
Nejma Koeptys is a lovely spicy, and semi-sweet, semi-floral mix, heavy on the resins (incense, benzoin) and spices (cinnamon, pink pepper) but not without a lovely floral mix jasmine, lily of the valley, and violet, and gourmand additives of vanilla and coconut to sweeten things up. It feels like a balanced, complete, and relatively easy-to-wear resinous scent that conjures being outdoors in market with the aromas of spicy and sweet food in the air, certainly cold-weather-leaning but not overly heavy / dense to the point that I would be uncomfortable wearing it indoors or at night in the summer.

Like the other fragrance I tried from Nejma, 7, Koeptys is a nice creation, and even though I wouldn’t likely rush to buy a bottle, as I feel there are plenty of great incense fragrances to choose from, I would certainly recommended that those interested in it try to seek out a sample.

Koeptys does not appear to be sold through retailers in the US, but rather, retailers in the Europe like Selfridges, Harrods, Harvel Nichols, and Essenza Nobile. Only Selfridges seems to have it in stock, and at $177 for 100ml, so not bad, and it appears to ship the US, then (if listed in USD).

Pretty fine stuff - no gangsta despite rapper
This fragrance is a speciality in the niche sector. A fragrance commissioned by a musician, but a rapper. In addition one of the also Gangsta-Rap. This gentleman is called Booba. You don't have to know him, his pictures on Wikipedia show him as the stereotypical rapper with tattoos, thick gold chains and baseball cap. Someone who is assumed to be a loyal customer of Philipp Plein or similar monstrously overpriced cheap clothing manufacturers, whose only task is to shout "I am expensive Alda, you can't afford it" into the world So the only possible scent is something screeching in the direction of "1 Million" by Paco Rabanne, better still something like this in even louder and from a company as expensive as possible, so loud that it smells right into the last concert series.

Now Nejma is a niche house with, in my opinion, rather fine fragrances. They can also be sweet and oriental, but on the whole they don't seem to be screamers. Well, when the rapper waves money, maybe even a small Swiss niche house gets weak and creates a completely undecent scent?

Stage performance: Koeptys
No gangsta rap
No gold chains
No thick eggs
More like Lang Lang.
Or Mark Knopfler with "Sultans of Swing"
Quite a surprise

But let's start over...
The packaging is not very exciting. Standard perfume packaging. Not cheap but not exciting either. The flacon puts a scoop on the quality. Grey, heavy, anthracite-silver cap (plastic, but valuable and also with weight), the lettering with a metal badge which is not only flat but slightly embossed. Chic and restrained.

When first sprayed, the bergamot makes its appearance, together with light fresh incense. All very light, almost a bit aquatic and not so much citric. Incense can also be fresh, at least in the "20 L'Eau Guerrière" by Pierre Guillaume, for example, I find it explicitly fresh, even when integrated. Here also.
The start is fast and I find jasmine and lily of the valley coming across clearly. I occasionally have my difficulties with these two, they seem feminine and too loud from time to time. Here they work well. Together with very light wood they last for quite a while. The florets are a bit less intense and you have a very balanced light scent that keeps a pleasant freshness. No shower gel, rather clean, quite complex and exciting to smell.
In time, maybe after 2 hours or so, the base comes out. Described with "benzoin, patchouli, vanilla, coconut milk" it does not quite do justice to the appearance. You would expect more sweetness and maybe patchouli earthiness. I don't smell a strong patch, it rather works together with sandalwood and gives a soft base. Benzoin and vanilla are added, I can smell coconut milk, but it's the soft kind. Just like you find it in a carefully composed Asian dish, not the Virgin Island Pina Colada coconut (although there's nothing to be said against it) and no sweet coconut macaroons either. Wood, benzoin/vanilla and coconut carry the flowers in the base for quite a while.

The fragrance lasts astonishingly long. After 12 hours I could still sniff something. But after about 4-5 hours I think the Sillage is rather skin-tight. But I like to misjudge me there.

All in all, an absolute surprise for me. Very soft, light freshness, a lot of harmony in the tuning. It seems to me to be quite reserved and absolutely unisex-suitable and wearable in the office even without colleagues gasping for breath. Maybe it lacks the absolute uniqueness that is so often sought after in niche fragrances, and some will find it too reserved. I really like it and the rating just wobbles more towards 9 instead of 8.5.
