Stellar performance
I first tried this brand at Harrods all on paper and did not really appreciate the perfume, however the scent was has been on paper for ages. After having chat with a perfumista on this site, I decided to give it another try. Hence, I went down to the boutique in Knightsbridge and was welcomed by the ladies working there and I was shown all the perfumes in the first and second generation. I tried Abjar on my skin and absolutely loved it. This is an animalic spicy chypre. I was told all the ingredients were natural apart from aldehydes and there are 600 ingredients. Not sure how they fit all these in the perfume but the end product is indeed stunning. The cost is £895, and the first generation perfume equivalent is Meydan. The bottles are very heavy and comes with a magnetic cap, quality travel perfume holder and high end gift bag. The scent lasted just shy of 24 hours on my skin. Also the musk used is not synthetic, but the real deal. These perfumes are manufactured in Dubai, hence I wouldn't expect them to use synthetic musks. Overall, this is a very well blended sensual, deep complex, musky chypre, deep rich floral spicy oud perfume. I spent my childhood years in Dubai and this is a fitting tribute to the Arabian horses.

Smoky herbal beast!
I heard a lot of negative reviews about the original Complex EDP, hence I was not sure whether to venture with Complex 2020. I did and am glad I did not look back. It's a smoky herbal rounded pungent spice with beast mode silage and longevity. By the way, this is a pure parfum and highly concentrated than the original Complex.

A big let down
I am a huge fan of Boadicea, unfortunately Golden Aries was a huge let down, poor silage and longevity. For £800 I was expecting a huge performance considering it's supposed to be a pure perfume. The scent is nice, nothing spectacular. Sorry Boadicea

Gorgeous drydown
I bought this from Harrods with no regrets. I am not a big fan of Piguet but Knightsbridge is absolutely gorgeous. I love it from beginning to the end. The iris is delicious. It lasted a good 12 hours and slightly longer.

Astronomical
I went down to Harrods to try this perfume and I have been blown away! I had one spray on my wrist which was beast mode and its the third day and I can still smell the dry down which is exquisite woody, musky animalic. This perfume has surpassed all of Roja Dove's creations and anything out there. I was told Nebulous has 43% perfume oils more than the standard parfum (15-30%) concentration. The initial spray is a blast of the rose and saffron and then the ouds and after 12 hours or more it turned into this divine skin scent which I have been getting wafts off from my wrist, third day today. This is one astronomical perfume and worth every penny spent. Yes, it is very very expensive at £1250 but I got the Harrods 10% discount which helped. Life is short and you live only once, so why not enjoy the little luxuries of life if one gets the chance. I would highly highly recommend Nebulous to anyone to try who is up for the challenge. Just one spray is enough and this bottle will last a lifetime. Kudos to Boadicea
