This is probably my most loved fragrance. It reliably produces a sense of total perfume satisfaction. On me this is mostly a ylang ylang perfume, big, fat, buttery and delicious ylang with a vintage presentation, but updated. I don't get any oud at all, thankfully. I think that what I'm experiencing as an animalic aspect is a beautifully blended oud note.
It kind of drove me crazy a bit at first as I kept thinking it smelled like something else. First I thought, Mitsouko, then it was l'Heure Bleu, then 24 Faubourg at which point I lost it completely and thought Odalisque and Divine. I love and own all of these fragrances and Nejma 4 is definitely in the same ballpark. After repeated wearings, I've concluded that in this heavily populated perfume terrain, Nejma four is the one that suits me the best.
Part of what I love about it is how wearable it is. Many fragrances are so strong they knock out my nose and I can't smell them at all. Not to mention what effect they are having on my companions. This one I can give myself three good sprays and enjoy it all day, wake up smelling it without fearing the oppression of myself or others. A neat trick and an unpretentious, beautifully turned out classic fragrance.
