It is an 100% Oriental scent. In fact, when I think the Oriental fragrances in general, Escada PH comes to my mind among the first ones.
I am not the biggest fan of this myself, but I must admit it is quite unique. Suprisingly hard for me to compare this to anything, but I`d say it shares certain similarities to Egoiste. Vanilla, benzoin and sandalwood notes are prominent. It also has some (dried) fruitiness to it, which creates this boozy effect....
It is strong enough for sure, and the lasting power is satisfying. Sillage is outrageous.
My disliking of this scent is a mysterious one : I admit it is a good scent, but there is something in it that keeps bothering me. It`s weird, since I usually like Orientals with strong charachter, very much so.
I have had both, EdT and EdP of this. Got rid of the full size bottles, I only have EdP version of this as a miniature, these days.
But Frank, I`m quite sure you will like it, so don`t be too afraid of that blind purchase.
