Is "II" Better Than One?...
Derviche II opens with light floral citrus enhanced pineapple fruit, and just a hint of amber before transitioning to its heart. As the composition enters its early heart, it morphs to a woody focus, as likely faux Oud takes the fore with woody incense, warm saffron spice infused pipe tobacco and soft semi-sweet amber support. During the late dry-down, the faux oud vacates as the composition turns to a familiar mildly sweet vanilla and soft woody accord with the faint pipe tobacco remnants adding support through the finish. Projection is good to very good, and longevity excellent at over 12 hours on skin.

At first, I really didn't get the tie-in name, calling the composition Derviche II, because this follow-up perfume for a good part of the development smells quite different than the first Derviche effort. Derviche II, by contrast, is much more of a fruity-woody, with slightly synthetic smelling pineapple infusing synthetic smelling Oud that permeates the open and key middle section. Initially I didn't even notice the prominent tobacco found in the original, but it is there beneath the Oud if you look close enough. It is only when you get to the late dry-down that the tie-in with the first Derviche becomes all too apparent, as the perfumes smell almost identical at this point, and it probably is the best part of the two's development. I think it is safe to say that if you own Derviche, you can own Derviche II without major overlap, but the real question is "Should you?". I will leave that answer up to each individual wearer to decide, but I think one Derviche is enough for this writer. The bottom line is the $156 per 75ml bottle Derviche II is a major departure from the original for about the first six hours, but while competent, the "good" to "very good" follow-up effort feels different but unnecessary, yielding a neutral recommendation except to collection completionists.

Initially juicy and spicy citric-fruity, this warm and creamy, oriental spicy-fruity sweet fragrance, settles to a smooth musky-woody base.

Nothing like original. Sparkling, warm spiced fruits with a sweet amber base. Like a fruity Xerjoff Starlight or non-aquatic Rasasi Hawas.
