A winter warming fragrance that is slightly sweet and steeped in a dark spicey rose brushed with amber. The dry down leads to a soft incense that is both comforting and cosy leaving a faint cedar like aroma. This is a laudable yet very affordable unisex floral perfume oil.
Out of the 3 Al Rehab perfume oils I ordered, Sharquiah was the first to arrive. When I first applied to the skin, the scent was very strong and sharp - very spicy with a bit of an antiseptic wisp to it. After about 30 minutes it mellowed into a spicy woody scent, not sweet at all so can be classified as a unisex IMO.
During the day it developed into a smoother, darker spicy-woody scent - very unusual - my BF liked it. I feel comfortable within this scent - will definitely wear it during the darker shorter days of the north European winter :)
Some 10 hours later, the scent is deep, spicy and somewhat sweet... NICE !! One more star ;)
