The rose is prominent and very well done and it's supported by Cambodi oud which is a bit smokey and not too animalic at all to me. There doesn't seem to be much else in the mix. If there is, I can't discern any specifics.
My version is from a few years ago and it has aged very nicely. I'm not exactly sure what Sharif is doing these days but if his Khalta Ateeq is the same as what have, it is definitely excellent stuff.
