for me Ubar was love at first sniff!!
the only perfume i can compare it to is vintage Joy,becasue of jasmine-rose combo! and other floral classics have just too messy base that is many times soapy, powdery and dirty sweet and hence old faashioned to my nose. Ubar smells so modern
there is no civet note
at least not the real one! i am not fan of animalic notes, let alone civet
but i do like when perfume has some touch of sensuality! when its full, not watered down, or synthetic
also i did not see it listed as note anywhere,
but what gives Ubar this sensuality i think comes from jasmine
, its indolic parts can smell dirty, but layered on a base of sandalwood that makes it lactonic floral, so nothing powdery at all, its more creamy,lactonic
Ubar mixes many beautiful things, beeing lactonic, creamy,complex
floral, gentle and longlasting, sweet but airy too, its not oldfashined smell at all!!!
i just wish i know how the vintage juice was like!! with its civet note! becasue i allways go for vintage when i miss the beauty , here i just cant imagine anything better only if its touch more creamy/lactonic
, i definitely dont miss civet note
but this is for another topic :modern vs vinatge Ubar
