I must warn you, Indiscreet - Rasa Xtreme is not, I repeat not, a perfume to be worn in the day light, let alone to the office!
Rasa Xtreme is a gorgeous animalic, dirrty musk - even more sexual / sensual than Serge Lutens Musc Koublai Khan and needs to be worn with caution - not to mention the cujones to back up what that scent is starting!!
Even I, Moondeva (who begged Serena to relaunch this beauty in the first place), am very wary of wearing this in inappropriate situations.
OK, enough with the histrionics.
I love and adore Rasa Xtreme (and consider it a Holy Grail scent), but am aware that it is probably not best worn in a professional, non sexual / sensual situation. It differs from Rasa in being more intensely animalic, with a distinctly raw, civet accord that can be quite fecal to others. My chemistry adores civet and works well with it but I can see how it could easily overwhelm.
I intend to pack away my Rasa Xtreme until the cooler darker months of winter and wear the much more socially acceptable Rasa during the summer months.
I think what may make a difference is the formulation you wear it in. I usually only purchase parfum strength from Ava Luxe, so that is why I think the tamer Rasa may be your best bet for office wear if you love this scent.
Is it the Eau de Parfum strength you are testing of Rasa? If the answer is yes - I recommend you try a sample of the parfum before you launch into Rasa Xtreme.
If you end up loving the Rasa Xtreme (and I truly hope you do) I would suggest that you stick to the lesser EDP or Shower gel + Body cream strengths for day time / office wear.
If you hate it then please, please, please send your unwanted sample to me - I will give it a loving home...
