Should have paid more attention to rogalal!
Blind bought this and and it is unisex if you use a very broad definition.
Very sweet and feminine, may have some similarities with one of the Chanel fragrances marketed to women. Will have to go through my wife's collection to verify.
Good quality, a little interesting touch of spice, but mostly sweet!
After revisiting my wife's fragrances, it indeed it is a 1st Cousin to Coco Chanel.
Smells better for the first 20 minutes, but does not have the legs of Coco which gives a solid 6-7 hours. If it had solid longevity I would recommend it highly to women. As it is, it is severely over priced for anyone.

Oriental Lounge by The Different Company is a beautiful sweet Oriental fragrance. From the first spray you can smell the amber and tonka. In the dry down it is a soft Oriental gourmand. The tonka really shines in the dry down. It is sweet, peppery, spicy, mysterious and alluring. I could picture Greta Garbo wearing this fragrance in Grand Hotel.
great take on the Oriental genre, solid sillage and good longevity..bergamot , tonka till an amber core for the final curtain, if you are into orientals this is a great one!

Bergamot, tonka and amber is what I'm picking up on the opening. This gives the fragrance a nice fresh aromatic sweet amber scent.
After a short while the pepper and woods come into play making sure the scent does not become too sweet. Later on in the drydown a slight floral rose note joins the blend giving the scent a extra dimension.
This accord of citrus aromatic amber and peppery woods is becoming quite common now. And I have smelled it in a lot of different fragrances.
A very nice scent though it does nothing to distinguish itself amongst other scents of it's kind. In fact I like Barkhane by Teo Cabanel better which is highly reminiscent of this fragrance.
Dior homme intense mis-labeled?
Smells like diluted dior homme intense. Not bad, but not fantastic either .
Cons: Unoriginal perhaps "
Kind of "meh" for me. It's a marshmallow-sweet vanilla with some lemony citrus on top, with a polite butterscotchy amber and a bit of powder. In my opinion, the curry is just a marketing gimmick - I can't smell it.
It's not nearly as rich as most scents of this type. That being said, it's still quite loud - it's just weirdly "thin". Despite some old-school elements, the loud sweetness makes Oriental Lounge smell modern. I don't know - I just don't care for screeching marshmallows, even if they do have a classy powdery amber undertone.
