The king in Serge's perfumes chess screen
I would like to write this review as a tribute to one of my top 10 favorites perfumes. Chergui means "Eastern", so you should expect kinda Eastern scent from this masterpiece, which is not only very rich but also so attractive and dusty like historical Eastern ruins. The perfume opens as a gourmand-oriental where the honey dominates, composing remarkable accord with amber, musk, and rose. To my nose, the rose and the honey are responsible for the elegant sweetness in this lovely perfume. In the mid stage, you may encounter a great smell of tobacco leaf giving kinda gentleness and power to Chergui. This perfume is so rich like an eastern Bazaar where you may smell all the fine ingredients. The paramount point about Chergui is that this perfume comes and goes like a dream. It never disappoints you by exaggerations and shouting, yet it comes like a breeze, dancing under your noise and keeps you waiting until the next blow. The leather note is not that much strong, so vital though. It made a strong base for the total gourmand-woodsy-oriental fragrance which you can smell all through different stages of this perfume. It is counted as one the oriental fragrances, yet one of the most attractive one, since there is no clue of deep oudy tones or very rich animalistic notes. Generally speaking, Chergui is a very chick warm-spicy-oriental-woodsy perfume that you may fall in love with the very moment you give it a try.
