One screechysombitch on the open! The olfactory equivalent of fingernails down a chalkboard. There are well-constructed perfumes and then there are just scents... honestly, this is a sledgehammer of a just scent and I'm OK with that.
If you've ever had "a scrubber" then this type scent is probably not for you.
Even for those ready and willing for a lumberjack type adventure, this pungent leathery wood may please, yet may still be a little too abrupt and jarring for some. Kind of like riding your favorite grandaddy of a wood roller coaster after riding the new age steel rail monsters all day. It'll throw you around like a rag doll if you forget to remember the differences. It's good that "rickety" is still an option though and, yes, the lumberjacks I know like to ride roller coasters.
Surrati could just as easily have called this Leather & Oud. Upon settling it reminds me a little of Al Rehab - Oudy OIL. Same feel to me, at least, and about the same value as well.
1 or 2 sprays, tops. Please! How much lumber would a lumberjack jack if a lumberjack could jack lumber? The answer: Surrati Oudy Woody.
Not a fan of this one at all. Very synthetic oud or cumin with a leather note. Will be giving this one away.

It is one of our largest sold perfumes.
This fragrance grows on you fast, a leathery woody metallic fragrance, its perfect for very hot dry climates . It suppose to contain the Saif Al Hind accord, which accounts for the metallic sword vibe. Any lover of leather will like this.
