Arctic berry summer!
The notes are sweet but not too sweet, as the berry, arctic raspberry. And I get a lot of black currant and a bit of tea too. In the heart and base it's berry cashmere woody, but the wood doesn't take over. I don't know how Eva does it but this honestly smells like my childhood summers in arctic part of Sweden and Finland. And this makes me think of the taste of cloudberry too. I haven't tried anything like it as I can remember. I love it, it really takes me back to the north somehow. I guess that's the difference between niche and designer made scents: It has soul!

Unripened banana!
A tropical/white floral/fruity scent. Not like any other scent I own. AND the banana note smells just like I want it, fruity sweet and fresh without being too much banana or gooey sweet. Fits perfectly in combination with star fruit as I find that it balances the sweetness of the banana. Good lastingpower too.

Pears de Luxe!
What a beautiful sun shaped bottle! I don't know what it's like for you? But for me who experience many new scents daily, and in addition to that have a large collection of just about "everything", it's difficult to get a powerful impression when testing something new! Or by all means if I pick up a favorite from the cool darkness of cabinets and drawers. But suddenly it happens! A newcomer to me, although it can be classified as "vintage" as it came in 2004, that´s 16 years ago (time flies!).

The most prominent note is PEARS! I would say yellow Anjou pears, very juicy and sweet, but not *too* sweet, but yes, perfect! Furthermore, I feel the acidity of yellow grapefruits. As well as just "that right amount" of gardenia, cherry blossoms and lilies which calm the fruity notes down perfectly.

Beast mode!!
Comparing it to "Oud Bouquet" by Lancome. The rose is clearly more dominant in "Oud Bouquet". While "Shaghaf Oud" is much sweeter with more praline, however, no overtaking oud. I'd say "Oud Bouquet" is more elegant & floral all through. And Shaghaf Oud has much more of the praline & feels sweeter over all. And yes they are veeery similar. I have a decant of "Oud Bouquet", and decided on a bottle of "Shaghaf Oud". The far better price of it where I live made me buy it. Longevity/Sillage/Projection: Beast mode!!

A slightly more fruity/synthetic version of D&G The One!
I can only compare it with The One Edp, which I own a bottle of. In the heart notes, more similarities appear, but in the base they again become very easy to separate. Black Amber has more of a tangy vibe+has that tiare 'note in it. I'd say longevity is better on my skin with Zara. But no way near as smooth & creamy as The One. I could wear Zara Black Amber every day without problem, it easy to like!! Both scents have their advantages.
