This is a lovely light, spicy oriental fragrance. I have always loved Crabtree & Evelyn products, and it's a shame they discontinue so many of their classics, most of which were quite interesting and unusual.
Azzemour is a fragrance with listed notes of African Violet, Sandalwood, Incense & Spices, Orange peel, Gardenia, Moroccan Rose & Amber. I do get a mix of floral notes, orange and amber manily, with a light dusting of spices. It's very nice. It settles down to a warm mix of sweet spices and orange. I like it a lot. Not ground breaking at all, and I now see why it was discontinued. But I think Chanel Coco would be a better choice than this as far as the EdT is concerned, this being only available as an EdT.
It comes in a beautiful sturdy bottle laced all over with golden curlicues; very Arabian indeed. The perfume is a warm amber colour, like a setting sun over the desert. It is spicy but with a sugary sweet undertone. It doesn't have great sticking power but for a more gentle oriental, you can't go wrong. Choose this if Opium is too heady for you.
My first love. As soon as I opened the box I was amazed at how spicy it is. The first thing you notice is spice, the wonderful floral undertones and finaly amber. It has top notes of African violet and Morrocan rose, with a middle of spices and bergamot, and base notes of amber and wood notes. Wonderful, its exotic, but seems like something a sexy french woman would wear.
Very linear. Could have been another Arabie with more work, but came out smelling like a boring, one-note version of Mitsouko (or something) instead.
