Reviews of Burqa

A hypnotically dry mix of leather,erath,florals and spices makes an nice alternative to the classic aromatic fougeres.one of those unusual scent its unline anything else based on ink notes.it is ink-y from start to finish,i don't like this note but the quality is great indeed..Burqua is a strong and definite masculine scent that holds up.cool with a ticklish warmth vive.Dirty,Woody,Aromatic,Strange, Warm,Complex,Strong and Mysterious.


It opens with a strange floral that is not flowery and a hint of sage that disappers almost as quickly as it hits the skin.instead the leather and ink gets deeper and more buttery and woody notes more obvious and violet takes on just enough weight to smooth everything over.this complex mixture makes a modern take on a vintage classic.if a woman wear this she has dark haired,classy,strong minded.to me it is an acrid horrible ink.if you don't like ink notes in perfume you will have a problem with Burqua.

Sillage?Ok.

Longevity?Very Good on my skin.

This is a review of the "Eau Fine" version of Burqa...

Burqa opens with a very nice subtle jasmine and rose tandem that quickly adds a violet note into the mix creating a very interesting combination that is hard to describe, but the closest thing I can think of is that it smells somewhat like an olive (emphasis on "somewhat"). The top notes fade into the background after a few minutes and then a leathery incense accord takes over as the key heart accord. I see "black ink" listed as a heart note in the scent's pyramid, and I confess there is a bit of an ink-like accord supporting the leathery incense as well. In the base, patchouli, amber and woody teak are the standout notes, mixing in with the incense. Projection and longevity are both average.

Burqa is an intriguing scent that I like but don't love. It starts off a bit weird with its combination of rose, jasmine and violet, but soon changes into a more conventional incense and leather scent that is quite pleasant smelling but not revolutionary. I can appreciate the quality here, but the execution is just a hair off. I give Burqa a "good" rating of 3 to 3.5 stars out of 5. Certainly it is worth trying out, but buying it at its relatively lofty price point is a tougher sell, IMO.

Incredibly well blended ,incredibly middle eastern and exotic, incredibly unisex. This is like a thick dark syrup of woods,amber, sap and incense with touches of quirky sweetness from jasmine ,cardamom and rose which are not prominent but mixed together,to relieve us of too much darkness. There is a little bit of leather but a lot of incense . Got to be in a gothic kind of mood for this one. Interesting and a little definitely goes a long way.
