Alright, so I got mine two nights ago, and gave it a quick limited testing before bed that night on one arm, and gave it a full wearing today.
So here goes...
Right off the bat in the opening, it honestly reminded me of essentially straight vanilla. I think the "boozy" quality comes from the fact that it smells boozy in the same way that straight vanilla extract would smell boozy (as the real stuff is something like 50 proof or something like that). To me, honestly, the opening on this one seems like it would be comparable to just going down to your local market, buying a bottle of vanilla extract, putting it in an atomizer, and spraying it on.
I personally found it to be a cheap smelling vanilla over a one that I would define as rich/smooth. There's some other stuff playing around subtly, but it's hard to pick up exactly what at first, as the vanilla is more of a candy/extract sort of vanilla and dominates the fragrance as it's working as the star vs. a supporting role. I wouldn't say that I find the vanilla in this one rich as much as I find it punchy.
After a while, we do get the musk coming out, and a little bit more of the rest of what it's blended with, though I wouldn't define it as really "musky" as the vanilla maintains its prominence.
Honestly, I don't find it very complex or rich, and except for when the musky-ish spice announces its presence, is fairly linear, but that aside, I really don't find it bad either. The comparisons of 1270, SDV, DHI, LIDGE are lost on me, as I don't find it similar to any of those at all, and I've never smelled 24 Gold, so I can't comment on that.
If I was given the choice again, I don't think I would buy it, but I'm not displeased to own it. It didn't cost much, and I do appreciate that the OP recommended it, as the price really was a bargain, and I can see myself wearing it every now and again.
In short I would put it like this. My preference is steak and sushi. Given the option and budget (which I don't have
) I would eat those with some frequency. However, there are times when I just feel like grabbing a burger from McDonalds, and am quite happy to eat there, and enjoy what I eat when I do go there. I would never compare a Big Mac to a Kobe steak, but can enjoy both when the mood strikes me. I don't find Raghba more than just a decent cheapie. Pleasant, but not groundbreaking for me personally. To me it smells cheap but it has pleasant qualities as well, and I'm satisfied with it over all, though can't honestly say I'd recommend it.
Longevity is pretty good, and I can't comment for sillage except for that I received positive feedback on it, but that was only about 20 minutes after application, so I can't really use that to gauge anything.
Thanks to the OP for giving me the heads up on this. Who knows, after subsequent wearings, maybe I'll come to enjoy it more, as I know that's happened to me with other frags in the past.
