Not what I was expecting. With the name “Sheik” I was thinking lush and Oriental. Not so… it is light and fresh – a very nice herbal accord that is linear and has excellent longevity. The strong aromatics of the accord give it that feeling of fresh… I don’t care for it during the first half hour – lavender predominates – but after that the scent softens a bit, balances out, and becomes an attractive fresh and clean textured skin scent. I would guess that it’s composed of, among other notes, lavender and mint – but mild versions of both. This is a charmingly tidy and subtle masculine fragrance – definitely a buy for me.
