    Default A mix of Frapin 1270, Dior Homme and L'instant de Guerlain ! AMAZING ! (Arabian version)

    Hey guys, I've been in the game for a while now, and as most of you know once you have smelt thousands of fragrances you begin to explore other unique fragrances from foreign countries.
    So I thought I would make my first stop into middle eastern fragrances, as lately they have been getting some talk in the fragrance community.

    I tried out many different styles of oud, amber, musk etc and bought a couple of amazing fragrances but then I stumbled across a fragrance so amazing it left me speechless.
    The mix of smokiness with the sweetness of the vanilla accompanied by the "arab vibe" instantly made this a masterpiece in my eyes.

    It was like a mix of Frapin 1270, the dry down of Dior Homme and a bit of L'instant de Guerlain.
    The best part is, it lasts 10 hours + on skin and numerous days on clothes as most Arabian perfumes do, since they are highly concentrated.
    The fragrance is called "Raghba" it can be bought for $30 in a 100ml bottle (EDP)


    I recommend anyone that has some money to throw around to purchase this. I will post a link down below.

    I'd only recommend people who are interested in unique fragrances and have some money to throw around to try this out, but overall I'm adoring it.
    It's almost impossible to find in stores. So you must blind buy it.

    Haha wait until you get the packaging, bloody hell that thing needed to be dunked in molten lava to be opened. Very well packaged.

    Sounds interesting. It's remarkably cheap for something from that part of the world.
    I'll hold on and wait for some feedback from you pioneers. (Next month :-(

    Should I try this? I have too many Sweet scents already, I think I need to diversify my portfolio. I will wait for some feedback nevertheless.

    But for under £20 it can't really harm could it? I am just concerned for it being overly sweet.

    Looks interesting. I've tried a few Ajmals, Junaids, and Swiss Arabians, and was quite impressed with the price to quality ratio. In for the feedback.

    I had a sample of this a few years back, I remember it was very sweet but didn't smell cheap and more feminine than masculine. It has lots of vanilla and maybe sugar! I also remember it lasted too long and projected very well... Smelled like a "sweet vanilla bomb" but in a good way!

    This sounds like something I'd really like. But does it really smell like what @hawk is saying? I need some more opinions from people, let me know when all of you get your bottles! I might be purchasing one for myself if this really smells like the description above.

    Will do.

    I love 1270 and find it extremely unique, so anything that is reported to smell like it really peaks my interest.

    For the people asking how long it took to arrive, it took approximately 10 days to arrive, which was surprising since I was told it would take 21 days. Since I live in the "land down under"

    That's pretty fast!

    Can you write down the notes that you pick up out of this fragrance? I'm looking for a really sweet vanilla. Does it smell like any woods, incense or leather? Cuz those notes are the ones I hate the most. Please, help me out before purchasing a bottle!

    "A mix of Frapin 1270, the dry down of Dior Homme and a bit of L'instant de Guerlain" well that was good advertising and I also took a chance even tho I have no idea how Frapin 1270 smells like but I love the others two. I only hope you have a good nose and that it will last at least half of the time that you mentioned

    I'll let you know next month, or whenever it shows up. I bought it when I saw this thread, but still haven't received shipping notification.

    Mine has shipped - really looking forward to it. I'm in for a world of hurt from my girlfriend if it's too sweet, but I'll fix that by giving it to my brother in that case
