This night is only for men
Une nuit à Oman - that can hardly be an invitation to me. The scent is so dark and smoky that I instantly like to remember that I am a girl (or what is left of it, ok). Exactly - I think of lilac, daffodils and roses, of peaches and dragées. Honestly: I'd rather play female and wear a mainstream flowery-sugar-scented dress than to lean out of the window in such a masculine way. Because perfume should be fun! And here I have the feeling that I'm stuck in an incredibly difficult test and want to hand in an empty hand. I just can't do this! Where do you expect to find something fruity in this perfume? Of course, there's a plum, yes. But it's so heavily alcoholized, so dark and tearful that the Chinese plum brandy turns out to be good-night cocoa. And it's immediately covered in an incredible amount of resinous smoke. Dark and dangerous, without ever being erotic - the scent is a clear statement: "I don't want to please anyone here, only myself," he shouts to me. An oriental night, an elderly, white-robed, world-experienced sheikh, with a cigar, after an opulent meal, the sweet fruits still on the chased silver tray, yes, I can imagine. But the fruits are not for the sheikh, he has to watch his line and therefore he gets hazy at the many smoky oil lamps, which smell of resin, to dampen his appetite. This is what this nuit à Oman looks like. For those of us who stayed at home, who love a minimally fruity start and like it only too much when it is briskly overlaid by darkest labdanum, which only slowly lets a woody touch shimmer through between the tangy-smoky resinous swaths, while vanilla and even patchouli are protectively thrown under the swath - for us, this fragrance is perfect for the very coldest days of the year. When I let go of the Oman fantasy, I see this fragrance in the crazy cold winter, in the frost, when the chimneys are smoking invitingly and candles are in the windows. That moment when the fireplace is lit, this dark, bitter-serious ensemble of burnt wood notes comes quite close to the scent or, what is actually more appropriate anyway, the scent of a good, high-quality incense cone, which robs any sweet cookie smell in the smoking man's Advent rooms at the speed of light. Such a cone of incense, which smells more than just smoky, which has light fruit notes in it, is very well comparable with Ambre Khandjar. Therefore the scent fits best into the winter. To me it fits, although it looks very noble, unfortunately not so well. But that does not matter. I still find it very successful for those who like these aromas

The Heat is on ...
... it's humming on the radio.

Yes, we already know that - only how to switch the heat off?

Maybe you should take a look at the weather conditions in Reykjavik ?

Aha on the island of the fairies and trolls 16 degrees prevail - predominantly sunny.
I would like to have the breeze blowing around my nose on a comfortable Icelandic horse.

But maybe an oriental scent harmonizes me with the hot temperatures ?

And Ambre Khadjar immediately puts me on a noble camel that walks with me majestically.

The air flickers over the desert sand - but on the horizon a sea fata morgana appears.
This vision carries tart mandarin and soft plum with it.
Smooth vanilla is gently powdered over by iris - and despite its warmth, Khandjar doesn't make me sweat.

Of course it is not cooling down, because the patch glows golden brown in the background.

A real, valuable Oriental, which doesn't bother me - but still belongs in winter.

Then he will unfold his cuddly cosiness perfectly.
