    HMMMMMM.....This is very tempting. This seller also has a couple of other Arabian perfumes that I have been wanting to try. Might just have to pull the trigger on this one. I guess if it is too sweet Ill just give it to the girlfriend and make myself look good. I dont think I can lose here.

    I hope no one is disappointed when they actually get this haha, my nose might be different to a lot of other more experienced noses.
    None the less would be interesting to see what other people think, because after a full week of testing I think linking this to LIDGE and Dior Homme might be a little far off. I think it has more Vanilla than both of them, maybe like a more smoky version of Tobacco Vanille. An Arabian kind of Amouage version of 1270 and Tobacco Vanille, but smokier with more incense.

    Ok I really need to shut up now.

    hahaha, I'm used to blind buys and I pulled the trigger on this one after I read your initial impressions, I love LIDGE and Tobacco Vanille and I like DHI but I haven't sniffed 1270 so I'm having high hopes now and can't wait for it to arrive.

    Now Im even more excited about it! A nice spicy, smoky, vanilla is something I lack in my wardrobe and have been on the hunt for. I was considering Tobacco Vanille, Eau des Baux, or Strictly Private but now this sounds like it will fill the gap that I was looking for. Plus I ordered another Oudh based frag from the vendor that Im very excited about trying.

    You just made it sound more interesting. I really don't care much about anything that smells like DHI or LIDGE (though I own and enjoy both on occasion), as only the 1270 comparison peaked my interest, but your new description really ups the ante.

    "after a full week of testing I think linking this to LIDGE and Dior Homme might be a little far off" and those two were the reasons I bought it ... grrr
    and
    "an Arabian kind of Amouage version of 1270 and Tobacco Vanille, but smokier with more incense" so now its not even similar to Frapin 1270? I wonder what you'll tell us after one more week of wearing testing it

    I think first of all you need to tell us how does LIDGE or DH smell to you after testing them for one week, does LIDGE still smell like LIDGE after one week? :P

    I'm only kidding, just don't know what else to do for a month or more till it will get here

    I clearly said it smelt like 1270 in my initial statement..

    I tested Raghba for one week, I wasn't referring to LIDGE and DH.

    ^You made me buy this and the Palermo version of Tabacco Vanille this week. That's $65 I'm not getting back!!!

    Haha, you've got to admit that the Palermo version of Tobacco Vanille is almost an identical copy, and it has excellent longevity, sillage and projection.
    Now that's something I have full confidence in !

    Raghba is the one I'm nervous about lol.

    I'm disappointed that I wont be able to try the Raghba for another couple of months because of travel for work, but I'll definitely report back my findings. I've got all the frags you've mentioned so far except for 1270 and I love DHI and LIDGE... Let's see how similar it is. I did read on a fragrantica forum that it isn't very sweet and it is very spicy, which doesn't really sound like DHI or LIDGE, but what exactly do you smell? Is there cocoa? Is it very spicy like they said?

    EDIT: I'm assuming that because you mentioned it smells like Tabacco Vanille that it is quite spicy?

    Thanks, I am waiting for my bottle to arrive.
    I have been in Saudi Arabia a few times and this scent may bring me good memories.

    Mine finally shipped. I'll try to keep my standards high (as high as they can get for a $20 fragrance that is ) and my expectations low, and get back to some of you once it arrives.

    Oh, it was something we were talking about in the Australian subforum. It's made by a small Australian company called Palermo and unfortunately they only ship to Australia and New Zealand. Sorry for teasing you guys with that

    Wait, what? I'm not sure if you messed up with what you wanted to put or not, but if you didn't, then how can they mail something they don't have?

    I'd think if they're going to sell it, they should be able to source extra stock in a reasonable time frame.

    Zahra tried to promote their products on basenotes before but I think they got banned at some point... Now this post alone has given them more business than any other post they started themselves. Just sayin!
