    Default Meharees L`Erbolario

    I just blind bought this based on reviews and the fact that I couldnt find and samples to try and Im super stoked! Id love to hear some more feedback on this one while I await its arrival. Hows longevity and projection? What kind of spice notes does it incorporate? Ive heard it compared to Musc Ravageur and LDDM and I love both, how close is it to these? Has anyone tried anything else from this line? Thanks in advance!

    Maybe this will help. I'm curious about Meharees too, but I'm not ready to drop nearly $50 on a blind buy. I've been trying re-eeee-eeeee-eally hard to stop blind buying... but Meharees really has me tempted.

    Yeah, was just going to say that I made a thread asking about it recently. I still ended up buying MR just because people say Meharees is spicier and I like the subdued nature of MR, plus it has a lot more muskiness from my understanding, and I enjoy musk.

    Projection and longevity are fantastic. It smells a lot like the dry down of MR so if your familiar and like that then your going to feel right at home with Meharees. The best way I can describe it is it's a spicy/very slightly musky/heavy vanilla. To my nose it smells just like the bakery section of a grocery store. Spicier version. One bit of advice is less is more with this one and when you spray it keep it about a foot away from your skin. I actually layer this with Pure Havane and it's an absolutely fantastic combination.

    Thanks for the link, I must have just missed that on the front page. Ill post my thoughts when it arrives sometime this week. Anyone try anything else from this line yet? Some their other stuff sounded interesting too, such as the Sandalo.

    PS There is a 10% off promotion on the http://www.cybercucina.com/ccdocs/products/572.html site going on right now L'homme blanc. Sorry to tempt you.

    The nice cosy drydown of Musc Ravageur without the awful cloves on top. Didn't believe that it could be possible at first, even if 65 people on Fragrantica thought they smelt similar, so I went to test.

    Boy, was I convinced. Bought the Meharees. Never looked at a decant/bottle of Musc Ravageur again.

    For those that have tired Erbolario, how heavy are the cloves? I'm not a really big fan of cloves, but I can deal with some underlying within the fragrance. I'm really looking for something that represents the Middle East and exudes a desert vibe...very warm, very spicy, slightly smoky. Does Meharees L`Erbolario bring you to the Sahara?

    Meharees seems to me to have less cloves than MR, but Meharees is not going to bring you to the Sahara. I guess you're looking for L'ADDM.

    There isn't a clove note in Meharees. That's why some people prefer it to MR. As far as bringing you to the Sahara I would say it does. It has a middle eastern type spice to it.

    Ok, so I received my bottle in the mail today. WOW! Really great stuff here. And yes this does smell very very very similar to Musc Ravageur without the clove note. Are they identical? No. Is the quality the same? Pretty damn close. Is MR needed in your wardrobe if you own Meharees? Not for me, but thats up to you. I really prefer this to MR. It is very warm, very spicy, not smoky at all, and drips with a desert vibe. If anyone has ever tried the MR spray oil, this is almost identical to it. As far as projection and longevity go, its been 3 hrs since I sprayed myself and it is still going very, very strong. Projection is a little above average for an EDP after the first couple of hours.

    Overall, this is a real gem that hardly gets any play around here. Im really thinking about ordering a backup bottle of this right now in case it ever gets hard to find. Yet another uber successful blind buy for me thanks to reviews by other BN members. YESSS!!!!

    Fullcollapse. Have you tried Sandalo and Muschio Bianco? I am going to blind buy them together with Meharees though not sure how the Muschio Bianco compared to Acca Kappa's white moss.

    I have not. Sandalo sounds very promising though. If the quality and execution is anywhere close to Meharees I would purchase it in a heartbeat. If you do buy them, Id really like to hear your thoughts on them as I am very impressed with this house so far.

    I have smelled the line in Italy. Sandalo and Muschio didn't register, which means that they didn't seem much to me. I should go to Italy soon, and if I do, I'll report.

    Cacio. I would love to hear your thoughts if you have a chance to sniff the line in Italy.
    FullCollapse. I would let you know if I do get the sandalwood and the white musk.

    It's kind of hard to get which is why I think it doesn't get enough talk. Great quality juice at a reasonable price.

    It is similar to MR and very nice. As much as I like MR (and I enjoy the cloves and musk) - I can't deny that this is so much better value.

    This stuff is great, can find it fairly often on Amazon from some reputable sellers. Don't think its popular or expensive enough to knock-off to be quite honest if you are worried about the authenticity.

    With that said, I much prefer it to Musc Ravageur because of the lack of that horrendous, in my opinion, opening. Granted, some people like that opening, but I do not care for it at all. Meharees is the way to go.

    Is anyone in California able to order this other than from eBay and Basenotes? It hardly eeeeever comes up in those places. The regular seller says L'Elbolario cannot be shipped to California?!?!

    You can pretty much always find it here: http://www.cybercucina.com/ccdocs/products/572.html

    This is the direct importer of the whole line to the states. If you find it somewhere else in the US it came from these guys. Unless you live in California. Then you get NOTHING! NO MEHAREES FOR YOU! EVER!

    Its not their fault though. Its L'Erbolario Lodi that requests that it not be shipped to Cali. Guess they are not a fan of California. Who knows....

    I'm looking forward to more reviews as those of you who ordered this get a better feel for it. Meharees has been on my radar for quite a while, but man do I suck at pulling the trigger on blind buys.

    I'm going to guess it's an issue of taxes or some sort of odd legality, otherwise, they'd never want to avoid such a huge customer base. It is odd though. I wonder what the deal is.

    The biggest challenge with this scent is getting hold of it! To have it shipped to Oz, I would have to join and go through a third party shipping organisation - hassle.. I eventually just ordered a 10ml decant from TPC, but then it loses it's value for money..

    I too think they could sell a lot of this frag if they made it easier to buy!
