It's boozy and spicy with a hint of sweetness. For the first hour the sillage is big, and as it slowly becomes smoother, the composition changes to a dusty and sweet character,
I can get the sandy references and the whole Moroccan desert concept, but to me it's so much more. It's a feeling, soothing and intense at the same time, refined but rugged in spirit. It is pretty unique
Masterpiece territory....

Nothing but class here my friends. If you dont have the money, rob someone that wont press charges-lol The open of the Fresh citrus, calabrian lemon, grapefruit, and bergamot are as real as it gets in the niche perfumery world. The middle notes of lavender flowers, damascene rose, white flowers, florence iris are so light that when the scent drifts into your nose it makes you feel just wanting more & more. Well dont worry about the wanting aspect because the base of sandalwood, cedarwood, Amber and musks will make you feel unstoppable to anyone in your path. The ladies will remember you for many days and nights- Trust Me! 10/10 bigtime!

Smokey, viscous amber that dries down into a sweet-resinous-smokey scent. This is deep, viscous, and rich - it smells like money (not literally) in a totally classy yet contemporary way.

Strong as anything - the sillage on this is ridiculous. It'll fill a room. Longevity is likewise 10+ hours, but in reality probably up to/more than 24 hours if you don't wash it off. Projection similarly beastly. Needless to say this is only suited to colder weather - and ideally when the sun has set!

plum is unsurprisingly the star of the show here, so let's go right ahead and dig into that note first.

Plum Japonais uses umeboshi plum, so any notion of the purple succulent Western plums won't be precise. Umeboshi is an extraordinarily sour, fermented, jammy plum that would probably be too challenging on its own, but fortunately it gets along very well with others.

Vanilla and cinnamon fluff it up generously, but don't let that give you the impression of some kind of apricot cobbler. This cinnamon seems to have drifted right off of some resinous Vietnamese temple incense, and despite its gourmand qualities, Plum Japonaise is actually reasonably dusty
Performance is great, with powerful projection and sillage but moderate longevity. One of my all time favorites. If you want something that smells truly EXOTIC, give this one a sniff.

Exotic and luminous, an infectious and fun fragrance that manages to capture the warmth and character of vibrant Rio perfectly.
The fragrance is bursting with zesty citruses elevated by mint and ginger. The warm heart is accentuated by a cocktail of pepper and the smooth, creaminess of coconut milk. Brazilian Copaiba balm adds body and depth, and a delicious rum accord carries the fragrance long into the night.
Performance is very good for a freshie,but projection is average

Soft and sweet tobacco scent that has a subtle grape note that matches the color of the bottle.

This is one of those very versatile scents that doesn't excel or stand out in any one thing but is good for many occasions.



Projection is okay for the first hour but then it softens to a close-quarters scent only.

A solid cologne that’s ideal for office and formal scenarios, and also works well in summer casual setting,very classy ,versatile .Maybe not suited for a young guy,maybe above 30. But its very solid and a good daily driver for spring or autumn

Very well done fragrance.
In the begining you get the oud....
Between 10 .. 15 minutes that Oud's note is calms, and that is where the best part comes, because a magnificent rose note appears and the saffron also becomes powerful. At this time, the perfume smells "mysterious" and elegant. It is not that mysterious stranger / weird, but a mysterious very smelly and engaging / attractive. As if that were not enough, at this stage of evolution, also appears the cinnamon note, giving much sensuality to the perfume.
I think Carolina Herrera did a great job. They have come out of the comfort zone (always with very commercial perfumes) although the CH Insignia is relatively an "easy to use" if you think it is a fragrance inspired by the Middle East
