TAJ is inspired by the Taj Mahal at dawn and it smells like India most definitely. The fragrance opens with mandarin + green tea made soft with cinnamon and light rose. White tea also adds to the dryness of the opening. The middle notes have frankincense, cedar and patchouli for an oriental feel. The base is a quiet chocolate softness with patchouli. This is a very pleasant warm oriental spice fragrance. Full bottle worthy for me!
I like this fragrance. The first note I smelled was an attractive Saigon cinnamon, underpinned by orange. The base is sweet and delicious, due to the chocolate, and somehow it manages to stay dry and woody enough(probably due to a bit of patchouli and some tea) to keep from smelling too edible. Nice, well-balanced, and distinctive.
