It is a beautiful, bright perfume with a lemon that I think is the famous Japanese Yozu, instead of the typical neroli, its opening is citric but immediately it is perceived as it is accompanied by the other citrics.

At its inception is the gray Amber that merges with the citrics and frangipani, adding in that process the jasmin, the cedar and a wonderful sandalwood, this process lasts about 4 hours.
In that space of 4 hours the smell is perceived that forms an aura on you, this perfume is sensational since it is not the typical floral perfume with vanilla and wood.

The Ambar is always present, it is appreciated fix the other components, but if you notice a salty touch of something animal, not corral, cheese or something similar, if not very natural.

A big surprise I love this from Bortnikoff, you can see the quality of the products, at all times the oud that never happens to be the protagonist is an accompaniment.

Very long duration as 8/9 hours, the last 3 in the skin but it is perceived if one moves, it may be one of my last purchases that I have done best in relation quality / price / duration.

This seems to be a tribute to Tribute de Amouage made by Sultan Pasha, as references some take Tribute and the many of Montale as base Rosa / Saffron / Incense / Leather and Tobacco, De Montale will not make any comment as I consider it a continuous succession of certain perfumes with very repetitive notes.

The first thing to indicate is that both are Attars (oils), if we compare their prices per ml it seems that the same is exorbitant, if in the comparison we put the variable of its use (quantity) it is not so much its price in comparison of many perfumes with alcohol that are on the market.

The two coincide in many of the notes that compose it, Tribute has an authentic and characteristic incense from Oman, it is spicy and at the same time dark, but clean by the jasmine combination. The rose in no time predominates in the perfume, if not that it makes everything work. Something incredible, wonderful, a pity this discontinued.

In short, a jewel of oriental perfumery, if you go to the countries of the Gulf try to find it, if possible white box

Regarding Ame Sombre G1, it is a great homage, it is a current interpretation of Tribute. In this attar the biggest difference in the beginning is that this rose is with the saffron in its bright and striking opening, the incense here is more subtle, it may be because of the jasmine that makes it lighter.

The quality of the components of this attar are incredible, it can be somewhat linear in its process, but those tobacco leaves together with honey, leather and resins, make a set of beautifully assembled notes, can be more dense and heavy than Tribute, it may be the result of its beginning of a golden and floral honey, after that beginning of the honey, the musk takes the control in the direction along with the tobacco and the leather

In short, I advise you to try it, but in 99% of the cases I am convinced that you will be enthusiastic, like most of the Sultan Attars.

It is complex, different, difficult to adapt to this perfume, it is an oriental mixture, it is heavy, fruity and dark as Adam himself indicates on his website.

It is the only fragrance of this house that I did not like, I thought it would be like an artillery cannon, but I do not know if it is not well made or that it has too many notes that fight to be the prima donna.

A great Chypre, which is transforming into an oriental, is animal, but without overwhelming, then it becomes the greatest I have ever tasted and have.

It is as its name suggests, how to transport you to a wild place, but at the same time pure and natural, it seems a lie that results in a fresh and spicy aroma, but at the same time spent animal minutes


This to be his start in perfumery, is one of the greatest perfumes (Attars) that I have and have known.

It is like an original Guerlain classic, it is perceived vintage but at the same time modern, it is clearly perceived a set of different roses, but not the typical pink / azafran / oud.

In this case it is a set of authentic Oud that Adam himself has directed in the distillation with his house Feel Oud, it is great the set of Oud included in this attar.

Its opening in like a bouquet of flowers, (roses, frangipani), is not the typical rose is a fruity rose, with some great ouds.

In short, a masterpiece by Adam, with top quality products, 90% natural, can be expensive, but it's worth it, luckily we have a bottle of this.

Clearly they have said that the perfumes of this house do not come back to produce with the original name, they are limited edition.

For me 10/10

It is shocking at first, since we are not used to this type of perfume, it takes you to get used to it for a period of time, but it shows its quality, for me it has a problem this one, the excess of nail, being something pestilent and medicinal.

when the Gray Amber takes the control in the evolution, the salty ocean is appreciated, that becomes sweet and perfumed like a candy.

This in particular is what distorts the great perfumes of Areej le Dore.

After having already good experience with SPA, I see that its beginnings are extraordinary, the result of the fusion of Peach and Lima, a mature peach that makes it have an intensity that attracts you already at the beginning, something sweet but at the same time citrus, difficult to explain, but sublime.

After that peach / lime, it is perceived on a base of moss, the crunchy elemi, a medicinal note (mugwort), all that at first covers a quality and edible rose, the bergamot may not allow the over-ripened peach to be perceived.

After a while the resins are perceived, the incense, as the power of the incense increases, it clouds the rose and the fruity sweetness.

It is a fragrance with a lot of olfactory notes, which makes its evolution slow but always surprise you with something new, or else it is the Jasmine, the Malayan Oud. When arriving at 4/5 hours the jasmine totally takes over the fragrance, being sweet, indole and blackened.

At that time the base is a mossy green, being replaced by a smoked Oud, typical of the Malayan Oud; covered by an amber, pepper (Elemi) and some precious spicy resins.

After about 8 hours, the whole theme of the Jasmine vanishes on the basis of the Oak Moss, a very smoky incense is perceived, softly perceived a soft amber.

Ultimately for me it is superior to two very famous Chypres Mitsouko and Red Haute Luxe Parfum. In short Encens Chypre the buy recommended by SP, is a great symphony of precious aromas.

Tabac Grande

As its name suggests a great Totar de Tobaco, but not the typical tobacco that we see in niche or designer perfues, it is complex since it influences the amount applied, if a drop is small, tobacco predominates primarily, if the aplicaciókn is greater is a wonderful tobacco / leather set

It is a perfume that its beginning is like an explosion of cognac accompanied by an apricot liqueur can be, at those times it is dense, thick for its honey that is perceived very clearly.

Then it's all accompanied by a heavy musk, which makes it look like it's all fermented, which is when cognac appears, an intense, beautiful cognac, not the typical Apple Brandy cognac.

If you want a fragrance of tobacco with something less than a drop, you will perceive it clearly, a greater amount makes the leather predominate in the perfume.

The smell of tobacco that is perceived is that of a good Havana cigar, which has moistened the tip and an intense, greasy smell is perceived as dirty but very additive.

After trying and taking a year with Tabac Grande, has overflowed in my preferences another wonderful perfume Tabac Aurea Tobacco of Sonoma.

Duration then practically all day, is the fragrance that most have asked me what you wear.

Al Hareem

It is a lovely combo of roses and saffron in its beginning, like a dripping and sweet rose, it is beautiful in the subtle of its beginning, after a while the entrance of the fruity Oud, red fruits, is perceived.

You gradually perceive the Sandalo, which rises from the bottom of the perfume, the oud in any case in soft, no smokier, dry or tarred.

After two hours, everything as a whole reaches a more complex level, strong, robust, but at the same time more sweet, fruity and very elegant.

During this process of time the deer musk is perceived, which inclines towards the earthly type, not in the sense that an animal musk is perceived.

At 5/6 hours the oud disappears, ending up being a creamy perfume bordered by roses,

For me it was a surprise, but a surprising and wonderful fragrance, it is perceived as if the sexuality sprouted little by little from the bottom of the rose, Aoud and Musk

From this house I do not desfrauda at the moment no attar

It is the typical perfume of Ellena, well done, nice, but very simple.

Its opening is crispy angelica, it is bitter and fresh, this makes it something clean and transparent for its cedar and musk.

Small longevity, moderate sillage at start and minimum spent a couple of hours, it is more for good weather (not hot), but its price does not buy it again.
