Reviews of Jbir

Floral ferment! Jabir is a kind of perfumery miso clears the brain and feeds the jaded nose. It offers a riot of fresh florals with the open, citrusy-sweet overtures of freesia in the lead but also shades of dewy peony and the more persistent presence of lily of the valley, alongside the more traditional sweeter rosy tones, and funks them up with a sourish, curdled, runny cheese like oud. Guess what? The combination is striking, quirky, and perks one up and reminiscent of the bouquet from a chilled glass of good late harvest Tokaji wine.
Jabir has a strong dose of vague musks the kind much favoured by the likes of Montale that create an almost hairspray haze extending the reach and diffusion of the perfume. This can have the unfortunate effect of blearing the whole composition, and that is somewhat the case here but when the blend has such an effervescence it doesnt bother me. Side effect of Jabir makes one itch for a party to go to, it has that kind of wa-hey! energy.
(Yup, that price tag is ridiculous a case of the hangover preceding the party.)
The later stages are more conventional, with Jabir turning into a woody rose in the Arabian style, which is also fine, but for a good four or five hours it is much, much more.

A floral opening - mainly freesia and a medium-sweet brightish rose - with a sweet and soft peppery undertone - are the main components in the opening phase. Later a restrained violet leads into a drydown that affirms the core floral nature of this composition, with whiffs of muguet pointing in the same white floral direction. A touch of booziness at times is noteworthy.

The base sees the ascendancy of a smooth and soft patchouli, with the pleasant sweetness being a combination of a fairly light musk with a restrained tonka impression. Most interesting, at this stage, is the addition of a rather nice oud, which blends in very harmoniously, and which lacks the overly synthetic-aggressive intrusiveness of many contemporary oud fragrances.

The sillage is moderate, the projection excellent and the longeivty seven hours on my skin.

This spring/autumn scent is pleasant, albeit not very creative, and it is very well blended - the latter is not unexpected give this is said to be a Xerjoff-spinoff. 3/5.

Jabir was a famous philosopher who lived in Persia.he interest in alchemy was inspired by his teacher jafar-as sadigh,the sixth shia imam.he is the father of early chemistry.Jabir is a perfume that is very special just like him.a characteristic perfume has a deep warmth and spicy character.a scent truly for kigs full of attractiveness and romance.unisex in a masculine way.very complex and strong stuff that just oozes quality and confidence.Sophisticated,Oriental, Floral,woody,Opulent,Exquisite Seductive,Glamorous and Attractive.


Awesome from the regal sweetness of its opening of peone,light citrus,freesia and pink pepper to the luxurious oud and rose in the base and every other harmonious accord chosen to play.the oud is just so well done.the rose is quiet and dangerous.as the scent mellows it becomes richer and the wood notes become prominent.this never becomes gothic or moody. the aura is warm and velvety and extremely content, like you are leaning against a great golden lion who is purring like a race car.suitable for use at night or during cold weather.a magical scent to stands out from the crowd.


Sillage?Ok.

Longevity?Good on my skin.

7.5/10
