Hayat fragrance notes

Reviews of Hayat

The lavender and patchouli create an earthy minty aroma at first and then the lavender is more aromatic, especially since it's blended with cardamom and cinnamon. Then there is the bitter smoky part made by cypriol and Oud. The dry down is pretty linear and mostly smoky and woody.

You're in a torture chamber getting stabbed in the face by knives covered in sharp and bitter orange juice, while also getting burned alive by a fire fueled by some really potent charred/smoked patchouli. You want to cry out, "Help!" but, you can't think of any words other than sharp ones, because everything, in this moment, is sharp. To finish you off, someone begins rubbing some rotting agarwood into your wounds, and you pass out. Hayat by Kemi Blending Magic.

From the word 'go' on the oud greets me - not as intrusively as in many other recent oud-centred releases, but strong enough to overpower the other components of the top note phase. A bitter citrus briefly shines through, whilst later in the drydown a touch of lavender struggles to make itself smelt.

Later on a touch of cardamom with a woodsy undertone is present, and closer towards the end a somewhat unexciting patchouli is added in. All throughout, however, the oud pushes all the rest of the notes aside in an overwhelming manner.

I get moderate sillage, very good projection and twelve hours of longevity.

An autumnal composition that performs very well, whilst lacking balance and over-emphasising the oud and keeping it far too dominant - a bit of Royal Oud's masterfully subtle aporoach to this wood would not go astray here. The oud as such is not so brilliant as to warrant its tyrannical dominance. 2.75/5.

A captivating tale of beauty and taste.Hayat is one of the best in this,handsome,strong. three adjectives,three accords for this woody oriental fragrance that will trigger your full potential.HAYAT has a seductive nature and temperamental elegance that leaves behind an unforgettable vapor trail.for lovers overpowered by love and passion.Expensive,Spicy,Strong,Charismatic, Mature,Gorgeous,Exquisite,Dark,Warm,Infinitely Woody and Greatly Oriental.

The oud spiced up with flashes of saafron at the outset,it chooses golden amber,cinnamon and aromatic cardamom to develop in its heart before unfolding into sensual harmonies of dark woods and patchouli for a lady killer scent.unisex but it has masculine edge and for me it is a scent for a 30/50 years old man who is confident and evokes the hotness of every moment,the intrigue of a night under the stars;envelops with memorable intensity.great but not the best oud scent.

Sillage?Very Good.

Longevity?About 12 hours on my skin.
