Eau So Fine and Eau So Pricey...
This is a review of the "Eau Fine" version of Burqa...

Burqa opens with a very nice subtle jasmine and rose tandem that quickly adds a violet note into the mix creating a very interesting combination that is hard to describe, but the closest thing I can think of is that it smells somewhat like an olive (emphasis on "somewhat"). The top notes fade into the background after a few minutes and then a leathery incense accord takes over as the key heart accord. I see "black ink" listed as a heart note in the scent's pyramid, and I confess there is a bit of an ink-like accord supporting the leathery incense as well. In the base, patchouli, amber and woody teak are the standout notes, mixing in with the incense. Projection and longevity are both average.

Burqa is an intriguing scent that I like but don't love. It starts off a bit weird with its combination of rose, jasmine and violet, but soon changes into a more conventional incense and leather scent that is quite pleasant smelling but not revolutionary. I can appreciate the quality here, but the execution is just a hair off. I give Burqa a "good" rating of 3 to 3.5 stars out of 5. Certainly it is worth trying out, but buying it at its relatively lofty price point is a tougher sell, IMO.

Delicate, light, slightly cool, but also sensual rose, deep in a darkened room.
