Oriental meets cumin or gifts from the Orient for the 1st time.
A good friend of mine was on holiday in the Orient, Saudi Arabia, and brought me 3 fragrances.
To 1:
Top note:
Cumin quite strong, piquant, not unpleasant. Rather special for me Heart note:
Floral notes, in the form of subtle roses, are added. Cumin still quite present.
Base:
Pleasant woody notes, subtle musk and fine vanilla form the balanced basis alongside cumin. Patchouli and amber underline the very successful base quite pleasantly Conclusion:
Cumin clearly dominates the heart and top notes. The base note is very rich and varied. For me quite pleasant, as I am used to oriental scents. Some smell sweat, if sweat would smell like that, I would be much more comfortable in trams and buses in summer. I rather wear this scent in my free time, not at work, it is a bit too present for that. Durability with me about 8 hours.

a fragrance that conveys a sense of cleanliness and tidiness
The fragrance has already been described precisely in the statements. Nevertheless I would like to summarize here and add my own impression. The start reminded me strongly of the Animale Animale (which appears more masculine): nice fruity, slightly sweetish, a little green and also a little smoky. But as it progresses, the scent becomes clearly too sweet for me, and the sweetness and a flowery scent even increase and last for a very long time. (more than 8 hours with me) Somehow the later course of fragrance seemed familiar to me, but I can't quite figure out what it could be. On the one hand I am reminded of the hairdresser, on the other hand I am reminded of the Bruno Banani Man. What amazes me is how some perfumes smell sweaty. For me, perfume is exactly the opposite, a fragrance that conveys cleanliness and care. For the price Tasmeem Men is a great perfume. I

Oriental Powerhouse
I have to be honest and share my story with you. The first time I tested this fragrance, I smelled a lot of sweat. Yes, you heard it. That sweat we got when it's very hot outside and we feel very dirty and smelly. That kind of sweat. Thank God that I learned how to really appreciate a fragrance. Actually Tasmeem is a beauty. I think that sweaty thing that I smelled at first was from the cumin. VERY CHEAP price for the quality inside. What could you ask from a juice that's a bit over 20$ ? Performance ? Through the roof ! 10+ hours with VERY strong projection. I got noticed even after 5-6 hours and from some distance (was a bit windy outside and the scent that remained on me just screamed "here I am" ). I am glad that I have it, because it's pretty unique for me. I don't even know how to describe it. Something between fresh and sweet. If you can imagine a Sheik in the desert, you got me. That's how Tasmeem smells for me. I wear it for special occasions only, even if it's that cheap. Only in the fall and a bit in the early spring (but careful with the number of sprays though).
I have to say it again : NOT for everyone's nose. Must be tested first. Blind buy is out of the question.
Overall : 8/10

Daarej had a cousin and it's name is Tasmeem
Just received Tasmeem this week from Amazon, did a test scent on my left arm on 12/05/18, so far is a beautiful scent to my nose and I do smell the cumin but not potent and does not have that body order that people proclaimed, it all depends on the individual's body/skin chemistry. I scents the Tonka Bean, Vanilla on the dry down, has the powdery scent.So far this is my 4th fragrance in the Rasasi line (Daarej, Entebaa, and Hawas) and La Yuqawam is arriving soon from Fragrancenet.com. If I would rank my Rasasi fragrances 1. Daarej 2. Tasmeem 3. Hawas and 4. Entebaa

Daarej has the similarities with Tasmeem and both smells beautiful, but I gave Daarej a slight edge over Tasmeem

Rasasi is bringing their A game in their fragrances and again don't sleep on this house

Scent(Opening/Dry Down): 7.5/10
Originality/Uniqueness: Similar to Daarej
Longevity/Performance: 9 /10: 10-12+ hrs still smell Tasmeem on my skin going on 15+ hrs
Value: 9/10
Overall: 8.5/10

SOTD: Rasasi: Tasmeem as of 12/24/18

Superb scent from the house of Rasasi: Tasmeem. It projects within 2-4 hrs, and performance/longevity to me is beast mode lasted on skin between 12-18+ hrs or longer it varies on skin chemistry and how many sprays as well. Value is incredible. Tasmeem is similar to Daarej, but Daarej to me is more blended and balanced and I prefer Daarej than Tasmeem. Vanilla, Cumin and Rose dominates the notes but I scent as well the Tonka Bean and Cardamom. Cumin is not overpowering but is there and I love how the Cumin is blended well with the Vanilla and Rose. For some people Cumin can be offended due to a B.O. or body odor that gives out. To me to my nose I don't get that body odor scent on the Cumin. Is a great value for a fragrance. The presentation/design is superb. Recommended

Tasmeem with G from gem :)
Bought blindly, following reviews on various internet sites, the Rasasi Tasmeem. The presentation is rather luxuriant for its price. A nice box, a very nice bottle, a good steel cap, and the good taste shapes give Tasmeem an aristocratic appearance.
But the juice inside the bottle... increases this first impression. Tasmeem by Rasasi is an Extraordinary gem (caps lock intentional). A little bit sweet, but not at all nauseous. Spicy and very well blended. Discreet, but strong in its hearth. The opening is divine, but also the drydown. It's similar to Cartier Declaration (must agree my portuguese friend Carlitos :) ), but having much better flavor. I had to choose between Daarej and Tasmeem and I choose Tasmeem because it can be worn also in warm seasons. It has multiple faces. It has an appearance of barbershop fragrance, but also a refined face.
Safe to blind buy. Girls and guys, this perfume outperforms many of the european designer creations. Believe me, I'm a hunter of this kind of perfumes: cheap but awesome. After Al Haramain - Excellent, this is the second gem I found. Amen! :D

Bvlgari Man in Black light with Green
Well, that's how he comes to me. Interesting, but lacking some character. Could a flanker of Bvlgari Man be in Black or Spicebomb or Black Orient? mhmm For the money a good buy but somehow lacks the unique selling proposition

Clear price/performance winner aside... I would compare it most likely with Man in Black and it costs only 15€ ? TJA.. good purchase good quality

Herbal Liqueur from Dubai
If you take a look at the right column you may wonder why Tasmeem is owned by so many Parfumo users. The answer is that a popular online shop in Germany (Iparfumerie.de) finally got engaged with Arab perfumes and perfume oils. They put a bunch of products by Rasasi and other brands into their line-up, and Rasasi's Tasmeem is the one who “made it” here. But considering the price of less than 20 €, is this really the Arabic gents' cologne that we are waiting for?

A first glance at the beautiful flacon will definitely earn this perfume our sympathy and calm down the reservations. The blue and green design is pleasing, yet unusual – attractively different from the usual perfume bottle style. It is a beautiful item that one would like to touch.

After a close test I can well understand why this fragrance attracts people – although I should exclude myself. This is Arabia for the very cautious, paired together with barbershop style and backed by a base note much appreciated by many. In our Western use of the word, the base has to be called oriental.

Tasmeem has a distinct development, and to some extend the fragrance lives out of the contrasts formed by the different phases. The most attractive and “Arabic” is the top notes. Here, dark and herbal notes are combined with discreet sweetness. And don't be afraid of the cumin: I cannot detect the sometimes problematic appeal of sweat that this note is rumoured. There is some cardamom with its citric and ethereal aspect, and most of all the mugwort. Maybe it is just a chestiness but in this part of the development there seems to be a very slight appeal of one of the popular synthetic oud notes, but only traces of it.

Against this the sweetness sends a clear liqueur-like signal. I felt reminded of the discontinued Lui by Rochas of which we do not have a proper substitute.

Quite soon the attractive head note gives way to floral and creamy hints. Also, a certain soapiness crops up – this is what I connect to the barbershop style mentioned before.

Already during the heart notes the oriental base becomes noticeable. This is built around the tonka bean and not an innovation by far. We are presented a well-known accord whith an earthy and woody impression that I like to compare with the scent of wet sand.

Considering the development one has to make concessions. Although the longevity is quite decent, the oriental base is reached too quickly. A little trick may help: the attractive head notes persist much longer if you spray Tasmeem on clothes. In doing so, the delicious herbal liqueur goes a long way!

For the followers of the oriental direction in perfumery and especially the “sand accord”, Tasmeem is a good choice as an everyday perfume. The quality should excel most of what is available among the orientals up to 50 €. But does is always have to be cheap? Perfume is luxury, shouldn't we rather exclude it from the general need to save money?

Looking at the so interesting Arab brands, I sadly miss offers in the upper price section of the mass market, and in the lower section of niche perfumery. I admit they would need decent distribution – because nobody would blind-buy the more expensive perfumes. But with Tasmeem and other fragrances of that kind I'd like to pose the question: If the Arabs can do this for 20 €, what would they be able to provide for 100 €? Hopefully, we should see some activity in the future.

This fragrance is really similar to Cartier's Declaration, but with better scent and performance. It costs less than half of Declaration.
