    I ordered a bottle of Maharadjah blind and I really do like it. I can't do a proper reivew of it right now but this one is very spicey with a great combo of cinnamon and lavender with more patchouli/clove and a hint of sandalwood in the drydown. Very comforting. I like to wear it to bed. The problem is I just find it hard to wear in public. tvlampboy I've read a lot of your reviews and you have some great taste in classic fragrances. I think you'd like this one too. I can't even think of another fragrance that I could compare it to.
    Oriscent, AgarAura Pure Ouds, Creed, LIDGE, Patou Pour Homme, tons of niche and rare stuff for sale!

    I've also been hoping that one of the more distinquished noses around here would post the first few reviews. I have tried them both, but I don't think I can really do them justice. You probably know that Luckyscent has them both in, lists the major notes and has samples available for Maharadjah. I can also tell you that when I asked, they sent me a sample of Maharanhi as well.

    Maharadjah is very spicy and aromatic. My grasp of perfume history is still shaky, but I think the idea of a lavender based oriental is novel and it is indeed well done if such a combination appeals to you (does to me!). It is on my eventual buy list.

    For me orange and sandalwood and amber form a holy trinity and I can't resist a good rendition of these notes. Maharanhi is utterly delicious without being sweet, the orange is crisp and yet very persistant. Not as spicy as Maharadjah, I won't be able to get to summer without buying a bottle of this.
    If I had any good idea what the words meant anymore, I would say this one is more feminine. I can say that if you really liked Shalimar (and I do), but found yourself in jeans on a weekend, you might reach for this instead.
