    It's the "cosmetics" corner at an Indian convenience store. That mixture of incense sticks, sandalwood soap and hair oil all penetrating through their flimsy packaging. Very strong, soapy, sweet, ambery and - cheap. I personally love this store smell, perhaps as it's a childhood memory of exotic otherness, but as a perfume for the body it's rather extreme, except if you're dressing up as a joss stick for a costume party. I say this as someone who likes and wears Serge Noir, which is equally clichéd, but far classier :D.

    Amir totally smells like very cheap incense sticks from india. Intoxicating (in a very bad way)!

    I find Amir to be a very pleasant incensey amber, a touch of smoke at the beginning leading to a round, opoponax-laden amber. It's not very complex, but it's very wearable, and has good longevity despite its weak sillage.

    I'd wear it if I owned a bottle, but I'm not racing out to buy it.

    Initially, Amir smells to my nose exactly like the opening of Tabu (vintage cologne). It is a bit dusty/musty - probably some incense notes in the mix - leading into a gorgeous amber. In short order Amirs' evolution veers away from Tabu completely, and really gets completely lost in rich golden amber. Just when I think the amber is going to maintain, I must take another whiff. It actually subsides and gives way to a minty sort of note...which I don't love, but it's not off-putting. At this stage of the game my feeling for this juice is that it would make a fabulous masculine. I ended up spritzing some Ambre Extreme over it - to revive the amber note, which worked out just fine. I will give Amir a thumbs up, but will not purchase a full bottle, because of the minty ending.

    A burst of bitter herbal sweetness in the top notes, then extremely sweet, high pitched oriental notes. Nothing particularly bad about the notes, but it's painfully sweet and unoriginal. I might t be intrigued by this if I found it for less than ten dollars as a fragrance oil at some little hippy shop, but this is priced and packaged as a boutique fragrance and I don't feel it's worth the trouble or the price.
