About Portraits : The Uncompromising Sohan

Ambitious, intelligent and astute, Sohan has worked diligently with flair and talent to establish himself in the world of affairs.

A thoroughly unfamiliar rose. A rose with oversized thorns. A rose that knows nothing of coy discretion.

A master key can open many doors.

An opening dominated by an oud note right from the start, a sharp oud that it dominate but not too shrill.

The drydown adds a dark vetiver. It is not an earthy version and remains very much in the background.

A rose impression is also present - one is tempted to add “naturally” given that we are awash with more recent rose+oud releases over last last few years.

I get moderate sillage, very good projection and six hours of longevity on my skin.

Another rose+oud scent suitable for autumn, not bad but rather synthetic and lacking imagination. 2.75/5.

If you like real raw Oud, I think you may be a fan of this Uncompromising Sohan. It is done really well, and as pointed out in the first review, it starts fairly sharp but ends with a softer more mild side. I also think the rose is fairly hidden in this fragrance. Rose dominant scents usually bother me, but Sohan is mainly characterized by the Oud with some minimal vetiver and saffron. If anybody has smelled Histoires Outrecuidant, I believe you’ll find some nice similarities!

The Uncompromising Sohan is a brass eagle capped, 2017 arrival to the Penhalgon's Portraits fragrance series. This bottle is another in Penhaligons collection of rose centric fragrances that pair rose with berries, contrasted with saffron, pink pepper, vetiver, and mellowed with amber and oud. The variety of ways to spice up and incense a rose masculine perfume dates back to the original, 1872 Hammam Bouquet Penhaligon's that started the concept. Today Penhaligon's has many male rose beauties that are tuned slightly different from one another, filling the spectrum from soft subtlety to rich bold and savory. The variety goes from Savoy Steam (mild), Something About the Duke (civil spices), Hammam Bouquet (fruity rose oriental), Halfeti (spice trader, woody), As Sawira (mystical) and Uncompromising Sohan - very bold, expressive, uncompromising but pleasant.

Uncompromising Sohan is an Arabic styled accord of opulent jammy rose essence sharpened with saffron and pink pepper, resting on a warm wizened woods base of Laotian Oud, vetiver and sandalwood. This rose combination soars to the brighter side of the Arabic incense rose range but retires to a mellow but crisp assuring base. It is an excellent fagrance that is bold, long lasting and contains a wide range of tonal resonance from soaring formal red rose to sombre good natured mellow rose and woods retirement, from bright start to softer finish. This may not be my most favorite rose saffron oud scent, but it is a very good one.
