Reviews of Doblis (original)

Stardate 20181031:

Soft floral with a bit of sharpness. Not leather but there some the chypriness (Caleche-ness) here. A good composition (any maybe historically significant) but nothing about the smell justifies the hype or the price. Neutral to thumbs up.

Leather? Perhaps. There is some relation to Caleche and in the background a very light animalic related to Thyme and Oakmoss. A reserved Powder.

I was much more impressed with Caron's Tabac Blond EDC and well, Madame Rochas is, Ooh Lala!!!

Thumb's up from a Historical perspective of Guy Robert's work.

Leather certainly, polished wood, and a lovely old world rose. This scent is perfect from the moment it hits my skin to the dry down. There's a slight powdery quality too, but not in the foreground. Elegant, beautiful, refined, and reserved. This is kinda what I was expecting to get from Shalimar. When I smell this I feel like I'm at a very posh country club, relaxing in the lounge. Gorgeous and sexy!
