Except for the Venus symbol everything is just right here
... because the name and many of the ingredients are very much the same as those experienced today. Actually a smoky (Noir), dry (Desert) Oriental (Sahra), which I would have assigned to the Amouage Man series at a blind tasting stante pede. This is really a straight crossover. Scratchy by the incense and mild by vanilla and rose. Something friendly and lively is presumably added by the bitter orange. And the beeswax explains to me this dusty dryness. This characteristic is called "damped" with me, like covered with velour. A feeling like moving your hands in dry cement or lime until the last bit of moisture has disappeared from your skin.
I am really very limited regarding my scent preferences, and therefore it can happen after a certain total number of scents that after a break of a few months you either don't have a clear assignment to a scent anymore, or you think of several scent twins. Although Sahara Noir is not one of my favourite drywood scents, I immediately remembered it after a millisecond. This is not so easy for me with many fragrances from this direction, although I sometimes like them even better. The recognition value is really impressive. And all the more incomprehensible is therefore the cessation of the production of this "solitaire".
Unfortunately, today I was somehow not ready for this fragrance. I never really give much thought to what I'm gonna wear. Unless they are extreme "beasts" that one prefers not to wear out of consideration for the environment. But sometimes you notice during the course of the day that it just doesn't fit today. That happens with me sometimes even if I have occupied the days before with fragrances from another direction. From today's point of view, I'd almost take him out. But I could regret that bitterly in two weeks, because it is without doubt very, very well done. And that also applies to durability and Sillage, which this bottle, kitschy in my eyes, did not let expect.
