I am in love with this scent. It is spotty but it will last 8+ hours with two sprays. All around great cologne for a man. You can not over apply this.
is it true that this could be just as good and more affordable than musc ravageur?.... Yes, MR is an elite scent but at times it can be offensive with that clove note. Meharees is basically Musc Ravageur minus that clove note. Meharees is not as heavy and way more versatile. Meharees is boozier and it is less offensive. with its price tag one may wonder if meharees could be placed in the elite class of scents. the answer is hell yea. I wouldn't say that this is better than Musc ravageur. I say that these two scents are equal. one is more masculine the other can be worn in more settings.
This is very pleasant, smooth, mellow, and mature. The top notes have lavender, tangerine, bergamot and rose oil. For the first twenty minutes it reminds me exactly of lemon meringue pie. The middle and top notes are where it shines, after about an hour the citrusy vibe is muted and you get cinnamon with a slight touch of sweetness from dates. In the base the myrrh and tonka bean are ever present along side the dates that never really dissipated. In the end it gives off an amazing sweet nutty almond/walnut vibe.
I believe that myrhh cannot be the only wood present in this masterpiece. Méharées only exists in the 50ml size and it costs the same as the other L'erbolario fragrances of 100ml.
I'm assuming that its much more expensive to produce and that's why you receive only 50ml as opposed to 100ml. I would guesstimate that cedarwood, sandalwood, guaiac wood, amber, basil, nutmeg & musk might*** also be present in this. In conclusion this fragrance is BEAUTIFUL and a must try.
Vanilla gourmand with light spice and a slight medicinal note at the initial spray (not bad though). I like this one. Not expensive (around $50). Has that slight middle eastern vibe. Definitely one to try!
Similar to the dry down of Musc Rav. Longevity is not great, and projection is bad. This has no character at all.
