I go thumbs up based on my large sample of Timbuktu. I love the opening so much. Dark, mysterious spice and incense. Then, wham, it goes soap. Quick dry down to a creamy, soapy, warm amorphous blend.
That might sound boring, but really, I wear Timbuktu and know I look quite odd walking around with my wrist pressed against my nose.
I cannot stop smelling it.
It might fade to soap, and quickly on my skin, but it is an exotic soap, smelling like you bought a gorgeous handcrafted bar from a street vendor whose grandmother made it using all natural ingredients found nowhere else in the world but her secret mountain garden. She might have also slipped in just a bit of holy incense from an old temple.
The sillage and projection are moderate for me, but lovely while they last.
