Remember that song Happy? Imagine it, but instead of pharrell it was sung by a rose
as i get older in this fragrance race (and life in general) i notice that my nose is switching shit up on me; things i liked last month are less impressive today, and vice versa. or it could be the psicosis messing eith my mind, who the fuck knows really?

now me, i am a rose lover in my fragrances, especially when its well or uniquely done; from POAL , atomic rose, gold rose oudh: im just a sucker for the shit (lol).

so i decided to do a write up for Al Kimiya because quite frankly, there arent many reviews (if any) for this online, and many for the house of Royal Crown in general. i mean, the house is really expensive (even with or without the dope connections) to just straight up blindbuy for most folks, and as far as im aware, not many if any boutiques carry them either, in case you wanted to try before you buy . also, as my esteemed colleague @an assumed identity pointed out, their write ups arent exactly what youd call accurate.

anyway enough preamble, on to the damn frag. if you read the previous paragraphs of nonsense, this is obviously a rose based scent, and a damned good one at that. if i can compare it for a quick second, to my nose its closest sibling would be Ardent from Boadicea the Victorious, only not amywhere near as jammy, and brighter: ALOT brighter.

in fact, id go as far to say that this shit is uplifting; i feel good and upbeat when i throw this on. it's a nice floral freshie that's a slight touch jammy, wth other florals making their presence known but rose is the star here. it's supposed to be some honey in here but I don't get that at all but our noses are different so maybe you can pick it out. my favorite thing about this is the versatility: while ardent is a little too syrupy to wear in the hot months, lyric man is a little too formal to use as a signature and Porpora is very very dark, almost gothic like, al kimiya is in my opinion is an all year, all occasion all weather fragrance.

I went a little heavy on the sprays (10) and have not went nose blind, nor am I choking out any of my colleagues, so id say projection is moderate from past experience; i get around 9 hours of longevity, about 4 before it sits closer to the skin. as far as complexity goes, this baby is pretty linear, and thats ok, not every frag needs to take twists and turns until its gone: its a dummy reach for sure. scent as i said is bright upbeat and uplifting white floral, but we'll talk about the one downside...that price.

this fragrance retails at around 475, and would I pay 475 for this fragrance? hell no, you are out of your goddamn mind: but I also wouldn't pay 475 for almost any other fragrance either. if you can find a retailer on get a hookup with receiving a Facebook group and it's in between the 150 to $200 range I say go for it; its worth the price of admission at that point.

LOVE rose scent
This was my first ROSE LOVE in niche area. And this is still one of my favourite for spring and summer- it smells very luxury. The taifi rose with the bulgarian rose and oud and a little bergamott makes it a beautifule composition. Very elegant and feminim- for ocasson only.
