Liquidasset's Perfume Reviews
Mesmerizing Oriental spicy centered around a beautiful Arabian coffee accord. The perfume opens with a finely tuned exotic spice accord where as I sense Cardamon, nutmeg and cinnamon notes, uplifting and lively. Taking hold of you just before moving to a balsamic ambery heart accentuated with amber, Oud and incense. The perfume settles on a nutty sweet sensual base of Tonka, cocoa and hazelnut creating and alluring scent profile . Masculine leaning with moderate sillage and projection and very good longevity. Absolutely superb like many in the Xerjoff line of Oriental perfumery with very high quality ingredients.
While not brash this fragrance leaves no room for subtleties, with the interplay of 2 varietals of Vetiver ( Haitian & Java) laced with Mandarin citrus that has a smooth intwined Nutmeg that brings for a seductive sweetness. Not to be left aloft the base comes on 30 mins in with one of the best Patchouli and Sandalwood accords I’ve gotten my nose on. Sweet, smoky, and citric.
With warm woods, fresh spices and beautiful fruit accords this scent is orchestrated like a symphonic masterpiece. This is the true definition of a aristocratic fragrance. You get a wonderful clove note added to a divine Cedar /Birch wood base combined with a fresh apple and mandarin citrus accord. It’s uplifting and spirited while staying understated and elegant.
An invigorating interplay of citrus and freshness from Lemon, Lime, Clary Sage, and bergamot becomes even more uplifting with an introduction Pink Pepper and spicy Saffron, made untamed by a bouquet of Violet Rose, and Jasmine, caressed with the unusual note of candied floss (cotton candy). After an hour the dry down comes front and center with an overture of woods including Cedar, Cypress, Casmir, Pine, Birch, and Aoud Woods, with an underlying base of Vanilla, Ambergris, Leather and Tonka Bean.
An intoxicating foray of black pepper and Lime collided intensely yet stunningly with freshly chopped ginger and cognac straight from its oak cask. Exquisitely underpinned by a bouquet of animalistic Jasmine massaged in benzoin and barrel aged tobacco. A Boozy, classy delicate dance on the promenade; cigar smoke fills the air while the spill of spirits become more distinguished with each temptress that passes by.
Oumma by Stéphane Humbert Lucas 777 is a oriental-woody. Dominantly balsamic and woody with an underlining of rose essence. Top notes are jasmine and rose; middle notes are peru balsam and tolu balsam; base notes are cedar, agarwood (oud) and cypriol oil or nagarmotha.
A luminous blend of Acqua Di Parma’s Signature citrus notes open as The Magnum Opus drawing you in while an alluring Russian coriander,leather and Amyris accord highlight the heart. Very elegant, very rich constitutes the base with suedes leather and seductive Oud hold you close.

Gaïac composed by Jean-Claude Alister for the house of M. Micallef. This is one of the first fragrances that introduced me to the niche market. It was around 2008 when I first smelled it and it was so different and sexy I had to purchase two bottles. I had never smelled anything like It. The woody, vanillic and amber tones just took over. It’s kind of like that age old question “so when did you fall in love with…...?“ For me this was it!!
