I just received my (blind) first order from Madini and am just trying them out for the first time today.
This does not smell like any fresh basil I know from the garden or wafting from the kitchen, nor the bright basil note in Jo Malone's Lime Basil Mandarin, which I like very much.
To me it does not stand alone as a wearable scent so I also dabbed some of the Madini Verbena perfume oil. The result was OK. Maybe I will just keep the bottle for reference, or to layer with scents I like that contain a basil note.
This line has a very good reputation so I am sure it is my own inexperience that has rendered this scent of no real use in my life! So take my opinion for what it's worth!
