Ohhhh Man, this stuff is awesome! It goes on like a can of Raid but soon takes you on a magical roller coaster ride. The Saffron and Cumin in the top send you on a middle eastern journey that takes you through a market of the highest quality spices. The cumin acts to round out the slight bitterness of the saffron. Next in the heart notes you stop in a dark and humid hookah den where the stickiest most luxurious tobaccos are being smoked by dubious business men. Finally in the base notes you are met by the sultan of that land who is wearing the finest Oudh perfume which has been tempered with sandalwood and musk. Projection and longevity are well above average and I get 8 hrs + longevity with 2 sprays.

I must say this is really great! I understand the reference to M7 made by Alfarom, it doesnt exactly share any similarities except in the way that it blends a really smooth oud into its composition almost effortlessly. It starts out with a great bitter orange with a creamy slightly sweet note. After awhile the bitter orange gets much creamier and richer as the oud really kicks in. Its interesting how much smoother this gets as time goes on. I guess its the amber/vanilla combo that lends itself to the smoothness. I just barley detect the lavender but I think its job is to keep the whole fragrance from crossing over the line of too sweet and feminine. Again, I agree with Alfarom that this could have been a little more edgy and included an animalic note. That being said I give this 9/10
