Soapy fragance
Soapy and more Woody Channel n5 versión. As the woodier It is, is more suitable for men. Ir remwmber me Also a bit to other perfumes like infusión d'homme by Prada but much more soapy. It smell like the classic soap tablets. It is a beast un longevity... More than 12 hours on skin and days on clothes. The scent is linear so if you like this kind of soapy smells go fit It, but if you dont like them not even try It... Really worths his price (i bought It for 13€/100ml)

1001 Citrus soap in the spice shop of the adapted Portuguese
Family ties quasi-law me to Saudi Arabia. So it's time for me to get used to oriental scents, I found. My first attempt is Afshan from Rasasi, a company from the United Arab Emirates. This time I don't find much information on the official website. I don't read Arabic either, but that wouldn't help me anyway, because Rasasi offers lots of different perfumes.

At first Afshan smells citric. Maybe there are citric flowers in the desert? I've never been to the desert before and I have no idea. Anyway, after a moment the perfume becomes softer and smells mainly soapy and okay, also floral. But some of the citric freshness remains and therefore the perfume also works at 30°C. It should be, because in the United Arab Emirates it is certainly quite warm. Then it becomes clearly oriental. The way you imagine or know it.

I have to think about the stories from 1001 Nights. But also to Tintin and Struppi in the realm of black gold. Probably the perfume is sold by a very adapted Portuguese (Senhor Oliveira de Figueira) in caftan. But maybe it's also the soap. What do you do with a piece of soap in the desert?

After about an hour, the soap is pushed into the background and spices become stronger. Now we are in the shop of the adapted Portuguese. There it is shady and relatively cool. A scoop of spice mix, please. The projection goes back.

I think Afshan's good. With limitations. The fragrance is already VERY exotic. I don't know if I would dare to go to work with it, although the projection at least after an hour is not as stunning as I had feared. My patients and colleagues are not all very tolerant of unusual fragrances. I suppose, however, that I would not be noticed at all when the quasi-law visits Saudi Arabia.

I only have one bottle, so I can't say anything about the bottle. The shelf life's okay. I don't know if the perfume would fit into the European winter. Maybe not. On exotic men, I could already imagine the perfume, on Dolph Lundgren rather not. I don't even know if I can imagine it in myself, although I'm wearing it right now and biologically I'm somehow female. At any rate, I believe that work is only possible if you have exotic jobs, such as Portuguese spice shops. There's gotta be some kind of sport where you can wear it. Sand shovels in the desert. Carnation throwing. Buzkaschi. In any case, I can't imagine it in the average European gym.

Cheap, but awesome!
Given the fact that they were discounted, I bought blindly for about 20 euros (both) Afshan (eau de parfum) and Mukhallad Oud Al Mubakhar, from Rasasi. Though I like strong perfumes, I found that they have harsh opening, almost unpleasant. Afshan has a vintage vibe given by its ressemblance with old and classy Chanel 5, but it's not similar with it. In opening, yes, Afshan do smell strong and about the same as Chanel 5. But after about a quart of hour, the dry down of Afshan is awesome! It transforms in something spicy and ambery/balsamic, but clean. Awesome! No doubt, I found it wearable by men w/o problems. And that's said by a grizzled man.
Regarding the performances, Afshan (eau de parfum) IS a monster of longevity especially on clothes. (Attention! It stains.) And its dry down is DIVINE.

Dont like it. Too sharp, in your face opening. And the sharpness lasts for a long time - The only positive abt this is, it lasts for hours.
