Great reviews Schach!
I've only tested two Ava Luxes', Shisha and Shambala Tibet. While I didn't like (I hated it almost instantly) Shambala Tibet, I really liked Shisha. The notes for Shisha are Tabac, Honey , Raisin, Aubepine, Indian jasmine , Amber, Sandalwood, Spices, Incense and Musk.
Smelled up close immediately after application Shisha almost made me gag with its strong musty "tobacco dipped in and dripping of honey" accord. You can also smell the Incense within the mix along with LOT of Honey and Amber. The Raisin accord gives the Honey an almost "boozy" quality as it lingers as a delicate base note against the Tobacco and Incense making it smell like a rich golden Honeyed drink. I couldn't smell the other notes listed, but that's probably because I'm NOT much of an expert in identifying individual notes. I can see myself wearing this often. This definitely rivals offerings from houses like Serge Lutens in terms of richness, longevity and sillage.
Shambala Tibet, well, it smelled like Horse pee on me, it gave me an headache and made me sweat in a fully air conditioned room.
