I've finally got you back!
Hey guys,
i would like to share with you my euphoria. I can still remember the exact moment when I first smelled the Herod. The whole room was flooded with this incredibly spicy and sublime scent. I was in love with it for shock. Cinnamon, tobacco and pepper wood to perfection. So, to play it safe, I bought Herod directly from Marly. Finally arriving home, I sprayed it on and...huh? This is not the Herod! No warmth no cinnamon, a completely different scent, plus with a really unpleasant metallic note. After much research, I read that the scents are watered down or reformulated, or even the different batches differ. Others think the scents still need to mature. Absolute bullshit! It annoys me immensely by now what you as a customer still have to put up with. It's a damn formula and if you stick to the plan, the batch always has to smell the same. I also don't understand why everything has to be constantly made worse? The perfumes are expensive enough to be able to maintain the quality over time. And boundless greed for profit has never done anyone any good.
So, enough ranting.
Now to the positive: Dua managed to capture this enchanting fragrance and the emotions of my 2018' Herod 1:1. I am happy!!! I can't say anything about the durability yet, but I'll wear it.
Hopefully Dua doesn't change anything in the formula, I really wish they would!
Chears together!

The Herod Effect
I've tried several times now to put the whole thing into a statement, but have been so limited each time by the maximum character count that the whole thing now seems to become my first comment after all.
And that's for a dupe, weird flavor.

Well then, let's start with why I have so much to write about this fragrance.
Years ago, far before I had dealt with the topic of perfume big - "hey, Le Male smells seductive and you need, One Million wears perfectly rightly every second and Davidoff Cool Water smells freshly showered" - I stumbled at a good friend at a house party through the bathroom and was confronted with a smorgasbord perfume bottles.
Overwhelmed why someone needs so many perfumes and why there is no Le Male, I asked him. He just laughed and took a bottle from collection.
Looked cool, I had to admit. He sprayed it on my neck, on my shirt and on my wrist.
"Smell this."
And for the first time, I smelled Herod. I was flashed. Excuse the Anglicism, but that just sums it up best. What a fragrance, I could not stop sniffing my wrist.
My girlfriend at the time was also heavily enthusiastic, caught himself again and again to smell me.
And so it happened again and again that I put on me on occasion with him Herod and just enjoyed the fragrance.

Years later, when I slowly began to acquire my own, "special" perfumes, it was time that Herod also moved in with me. First once as a filling.
The package arrived, I almost tore it in the air to get as quickly as possible to the much longed for fragrance, took it and sprayed it directly on my wrist - and was confused.
Did it always smell like that? That was the fragrance I was so addicted to years ago? Too bad, since my taste has probably changed then but. He was good, but nowhere near as phenomenal as in my memory.
And somehow he also lasted only for a few hours, and not as in memory the whole evening.

Then when my aforementioned acquaintance visited some time ago and went through my scents he came across the Herod bottling. "Cool, Herod! Mine has been empty for a while, can I have a go?". Of course he could. And then it happened: his reaction was identical. He was convinced that this must be a fake, a so-called dupe, and not even a particularly good one at that.
He ordered a bottle some time later because he was convinced that the original smelled different.
No. It didn't. It smelled very similar and had a very similar performance. We were both overwhelmed. Disappointed.

And that now slowly brings me to the real point and purpose of this long comment: Dua Fragrances - King of Judea Attar.
I came across this fragrance here on the forum, extremely critical of it due to bad experiences of other well-known dupes - granted, not of Herod specifically, but just disappointed in dupes in general. Yes, they smell similar, nothing more. Perform worse, like a shadow of the actually desired fragrance.
Nevertheless, then won but the curiosity and longing for the past experience, which is why I got me a bottle of it.
When this arrived I was at first just amazed at how incredibly cheap and featureless the bottle seemed. I just could not associate the bottle with the hoped for spectacular content, which looked to me just like a typical generic dupe bottle again.
I sprayed it on me, and was initially rewarded with a strong biting note.
Sniffed too early, it seems to me. When this then slowly laid down but something unexpected happened:
There it was. This was the fragrance of my "the world needs only the 5 known fragrances" bubble burst.
So I hadn't been wrong after all. The scent was so good at the time. And Kind of Judea Attar is still that good.
Here speaks by far no perfume expert, but a layman who slowly, peut a peut, discovered the fragrance world for himself. So do not nail me here on certain notes, olfactory perception or the like.
I just wanted to share with you my little journey and just also let you know that this clone, this dupe, has managed to revive me exactly the same experience I had the first time I was allowed to smell Herod. Thanks for this to Dua.

Ultimately, I can only say that I can describe my subjective feeling here. I personally like it by far better than the new Herod batches.

Herod Intense? More like Herod Light!²
I cannot understand how some people here come up with a Herod Intense designation. I have been sniffing both scents alternately for 15 minutes and recognize the Herod in this scent but it smells more like I have been smelling Herod for ages and he is just at the point where you can only smell a slight residue of Herod. But it is not so that you cannot smell him anymore, but he smells very soft in comparison. You have to imagine that you have been using Herod for 8 hours, all the scents have melted into each other and are just about to leave your skin so that you can only smell him very slightly. You take this smell then and turn the power regulator up again. Thereby you can perceive it again very well but it doesn't smell like in the beginning. This is how I would describe it in layman's terms :)

A wonderful scent, that starts on a sweet spicy note, followed by a smokey tobacco note, and drying down to a balanced mix.

Absolutely disgusting opening which gives a hint of throw-up.After an hour though magic starts to happen. Leaves VERY fat stains on the skin
