Oajan - Arab Thoroughbred!!!


Introduction:

Parfums de Marly "Oajan" !!!
is dedicated to one of the five lineages of Arab thoroughbred. These noble horses decided whole wars in former times as war horses. Nowadays, as racehorses, they profit from their excellent qualities in sporting competitions. The Arabs, kings among horses, were honoured with "Oajan" in the language of most delicious desserts, nobly interpreted, full of love and worship.

So now we come to the fragrance :)

Kilan? Who's Kilian? ) no human being needs, too much overrated my opinion ! Oajan is better, so much better! Richer, sinier, thicker, a thousand times more delicious! Halva (Turkish treat) marzipan, honey, caramel, amaretto and plum in chocolate. More is not possible!
It is often compared with the smell of the Christmas market or fair, which I do not feel.
It's very mature and tempting.
Nobody can resist this temptation, not at all, because this delicacy is guaranteed to be sinless.:))))
The perfumer Shyamala Maisondieu conjured a plum splendour for us here! What a gourmand! You must experience him yourself and because he smells so adult he is guaranteed also something for the self-confident man or also woman ;) to which I count myself !

For me personally with Guerlain tonka imperiale, one of the best gourmand fragrances in the world!!!!

Hope you have a little sweet impression of my perception of the scent? :)

And to the Kilian fans :)
Didn't want to offend anyone or badly portray the scent.
I beg your pardon :)

Oajan, a Christmas dream!
A Christmas dream!

Oajan, so typical Marly,
bangs of second one, fully in.
Cinnamon, dark, heavy and sweet, how could it be otherwise?
It's nothing new for Marlys now, is he worth a test?
Strong, stormy, typical horse!
Starts with dark wood and cinnamon,
A prelude where everything is right.
Dark, weighed down it seems,
Let's see what else he can do.
In the heart now, it will be sweet and heavy,
I can tell you it's very Christmassy!
Cinnamon and spices of all kinds,
The Christmas market immediately recognized!
The Christmassy sweet bustle,
If you want to assimilate.
Gourmand replaces the dark,
and keeps the wearer well on his toes.
Apple strudel is now perceived,
The transformation, now complete.
A quick-change artist to see clearly,
Sweetie comes, the woods go.
How does that proud horse sound now?
Will the feast of love still be a horror?
No need to worry, the heavenly scent,
is still hanging in the air, Christmassy and pleasant.
The sweetness remains, cinnamon, honey, vanilla,
After 10 hours, slowly emerging silence,
You've been there a long time, you've accompanied me,
tempts me to buy.
So you have to say,
The test was pretty rewarding,
even if intended, not gentle on the wallet.
In the usual black bottle, splendid robe,
you've been standing in the closet for a long time now.

And you know Oajan, with all your glory,
You got me hooked.

Cinnamon as far as the eye can reach and some honey to go with it
Herod was my first Parfums de Marly fragrance, which I was allowed to test some time ago. Known for creating oriental and sweet fragrances, the start with Herod is the perfect introduction to the world of Marly perfumes. Often the Layton is mentioned here, which is regarded as the figurehead of the brand and is also strongly promoted and advertised by YouTuber. Unfortunately the Herod was much more pleasant for my nose than the Layton. The Layton overtaxed my nose a bit, because it was a heard all sorts of thing, which showed no clear notes. Here I tested the Layton Exclusif, which was a bit more flattering. But at that time nothing went beyond the Herod.

Now at the same time I have received the Oajan and the Habdan on which I will leave a comment later. The Oajan is celebrated by some here as well as an expensive copy of a One Million Prive. Well, I had a mixed opinion after the first spray on. Because I knew the One Million Prive and had only sorted it out a few months ago because it was too sweet and sticky for me. Simply too much honey and driving too long on the caramel rail. Oajan actually had a similar note at the beginning, but it did not continue as it did with Paco Rabanne. Because the Oajan is caramely- sweet with a violent cinnamon explosion that blows you away. So full-bodied, intense and convincing as never before heard. The nice thing is, however, that the sweetness retreats after some time and exposes a wonderful cinnamon bouquet that is soft, sensual and only tenderly sweet.

An extremely convincing fragrance that bursts all cinnamon dimensions and rocks the autumn / winter. Memories of a mixture of sweet apple strudel (even if without apple) and another pastry like croissant or ox-eye are reflected somewhere. Those who are attracted by such cinnamon fragrances will not only experience their cinnamon miracle, but also one of the most convincing fragrances of Parfums de Marly

So it's Christmas soon??
Parfums de Marly. As so often, this is another brand that doesn't (yet) tell me anything. Marly, Marly... that reminds me of the name Marley, more precisely Jacob Marley, the late business partner of Ebenezer Scrooge, who was condemned to wander the earth as a restless spirit because he was too greedy and selfish as a human being instead of being good to others.

Then of course there is Bob Marley... but seriously, I have to describe him much less, because everybody should know him too :)

Well, let's get back to the scent. As I can see many people say here that the scent is quite strong from the charisma. That's probably quite possible, since I can smell the scent pretty good already, although I just removed the lid of the mini sprayer, which contains a sample of it! On the other hand... maybe the one who filled the scent into the mini sprayer also sprayed the whole mini sprayer from the outside :D

I wonder what to expect...?

The fragrance:
The fragrance begins with an intense, yet soft and powdery sweetness. I think it smells a little like dried fruit, like plums and peaches and stuff. But this can also be the Osmanthus, because I read that this plant should remind a little of peaches with its sweet scent.
Honey, on the other hand, comes later. You can smell the cinnamon well, even if it is not as spicy as you might be used to.
Only a few minutes later I also smell the vanilla, the fragrance is still slightly fruity, but mainly naturally powdery sweet. A little later the fragrance becomes more spicy and you can smell the honey, but now it is quite clear.
Also in the base, the fragrance remains quite sweet, but now clearly with a darker note, especially because of the musk. Tonka bean is also good smelling and smells very good especially with vanilla (where the musk becomes much stronger than the vanilla), the fragrance still has its powdery and soft notes. The background remains somewhat spicy and one still smells a note which reminds of (slightly alcoholic) dried fruits.

Sillage and shelf life:
Yes, the Sillage is very strong. Not necessarily extremely overwhelmingly bombastic (so if you don't exaggerate), but it will be very good to smell at one or the other and is also room-filling, which means that a strong scent cloud will also be left behind. It is good that this charisma also persists for a while before the fragrance gradually weakens.
It goes without saying that such a fragrance has a shelf life of more than ten or twelve hours.

The bottle:
The bottle is shaped like a flask and appears to be either matt or glossy black. On the front you can see the logo of the manufacturer, there are two rearing horses between a shield-shaped coat of arms. Reminds a little of the Ferrari logo (only that the Ferrari has the horse in its coat of arms and you only see one horse). The lid is gold-plated and shield-shaped triangular, so the sides are a little bent. All in all, it's okay.

If you are looking for fruity, sweet fragrances with a gourmand touch, you have come to the right place. Maybe the fruity notes are not everyone's cup of tea, but you can still try the fragrance. In my opinion, the fragrance is a little bit like an Atelier Cologne - Gold Leather, only without the leather of course.

The strong charisma and the long shelf life make the fragrance ideal for going out, especially because it has a sweet scent, which in my opinion is well received by many. Nevertheless, you have to be careful, as you could easily overdose yourself with this fragrance, especially when it comes to spraying on the clothes.

So what about Scrooge? Well, the fragrance is not too Christmassy, although it smells slightly spicy. However, I would say here rather winterly in general. But Scrooge shouldn't be too disappointed, because a miser like him wouldn't have allowed himself such a scent anyway,... maybe but maybe after three certain ghosts visited him... you never know :D

Ah great great, Christmas won't last long. It's the end of September. So that means four more showers, and four have Christmas, mu ha ha ha ha ha (igitt!!) :DD

Honey Cake
Yes, Oajan smells very much like Ambre Narguile and its counterparts Helium and Or du Serail (and Haram, though I don't remember it well.) What is different? For one, Oajan has the strongest sillage and longevity of all those mentioned above. It is also quite expensive but you get more for your money than with Ambre Narguile. However, AN has a smoother character and is overall just a little bit better done than Oajan. Oajan is sour and honeyed with some cinnamon (wish it had more cinnamon) and benzoin. There is a strange liqueur-like character to it.

I would recommend Oajan for sweet-lovers and lovers of Ambre Narguile-type scents but don't find that AN lasts or projects enough. Do you need both? I do, but I don't think the average person does. If you want an "expensive" smelling prestige creation, go for AN. If you want a sillage monster that lasts all day, do the Oajan.

Gift under the Coating
Christmas is slowly coming, and I am longing for fragrances fitting to my festal mood. This is exactly, what I get from OAJAN.

Pie, honey cake, cinnamon, sugar-coat. OAJAN presents you generously his sweetness and broad smile. Not only you, but everyone who stays in the same airspace with you. Be careful, if you have guests, they will expect cake from you :-) Top is a whirl driving you deep in acceptance of OAJAN.

Enormous richness is buried under the coating. Woods, spices, divine davana, almond, resins, a totally gourmand fragrance, which is still more complex than a normal gourmand. Heart is the real miracle here. Base is simplier and easy to understand the overflowing sweetness, vanilla kicks out others from the ropes.

I tested it before going to German lessons, and learning and concentrating was a really tough task.

Conclusions after testing (and falling in love with) OAJAN:
- strong, not feasible for daily wear, and especially not for business issues
- unisex
- winter fragrance
- comparable perfume: NOEL AU BALCON
- hopeless fact against acceptable financial status: I want a full bottle.
