Reviews of Shagya

Shagya is a very linear fragrance; Agarwood Oud, Guaiac wood, some Patchouli, Musk, and Bergamot. Listed additionally, are Cedar, Geranium, Lime, Pink Pepper, and Papyrus.

Upon first sniff, this reminded me of Parfums de Marly's Kuhuyan from the soft oud cedar combination. I also get a slight oily reminder of Mancera's Kumkat Wood, less the sweetness though.

Shagya gets to Kuhuyan's dry down much faster. Kuhuyan's beginning is puzzling and weird but the dry down is very nice. The down side is that is takes too long to get to that dry down in Kuhhyan.

Shagya, a nice, soft, woodsy, faintly sweet, with a hint of musk type of fragrance. Not overbearing, sharp, etc. but very mellow.
IMO unisex, not distinctly masculine yet very pleasant...

Diamondflame: While I'm not bowled over, I must confess I do like it." My sentiments exactly!!

{This is so soft it is hard to determine if you are wearing any fragrance at all.}

Overall a great offering!

A nice if somewhat uninspired take on the citrus and woods genre. Underneath the lime is a faintly animalic undercurrent that bolsters the woods and evokes certain blends of oud. It makes me think of Montale Aoud Lime and that's a plus.

While I'm not bowled over, I must confess I do like it. The best part of this fragrance is probably the name. SHAGYA. Double entendres, anyone?

This one is a smooth nicely blended, still somewhat complex but very well coordinated fragrance. The immediate tone of Shagya is well on the sunny side of green while the background support is of a calming fine woods fragrance. Lime, bergamot, lignam vitae, vetiver leave a solid green platform which does have a strong lemon general aroma to it. The oud and pink pepper adds an unusual warm resinous mid note to the woods while the papyrus, cedar and gaiac deliver a cool dry sheen which holds the base. There is a complexity of subtle mysteriousness buried within this perfume that asks the passerby to "look deeper . . . come closer in", so characteristic of subtleties of fragrance from perfumer Sidonie Lancesseur (Straight to Heaven, Incense Oud, Cruel Intenstions, Apple Brandy, L'Humansite). I appreciate her artistry and subtlety in this creation and it has encouraged me to revisit some of her earlier work. Shagya is effortless to wear and lays down a cool woods and sunshine green subtlety in its wake. Easy!

An interesting, complex green scent. Good citrus and spice up-front. The oud adds a tangy note but is not overwhelming or odd. The vetiver and papyrus give a grassy chord. My one complaint is that the dry-down gets too sweet to suit me.

an outstanding summer-grade oud! cedar offsets the oud and bright vetiver gives it a freshness that really works. longevity is disappointing for an edp but i got this for a great price so i spray with abandon.

This is good woody and spicy fragrance for serious guys!
There is huge blast of oud in this fragrance for sure but not medicinal like YSL M7 or Amouage Epic Man.
In the opening, there is strong scent of cedar, vetiver, pepper and oud. Very Strong but not in your face and really pleasant.
When dry down comes, oud ,cedar and vetiver are still there with some floral which comes from geranium and some sweet musk.
Finally at the base, floral and oud are weak in the background with cedar and vetiver hand to hand and some sweet musk to give it a semi sweet and musky vibe.
Projection is very good and longevity is above average.
