    Post Rahgba by Lattafa = Guerlains Spiritueuse Double Vanille Initial spray / Bottle smell

    So today I finally received my bottle of Rahgba after purchasing from an ebay seller located in Bahrain.
    I had stumbled across this perfume god knows how but I'm pretty sure there was a forum stating that it smelt like 1270 & DHI ? ( 1270 I want to buy ). After a period of searching for more forums and videos on this "HiddenGem" I finally gave in and thought $25 + $10 shipping, Hit & Miss but what could honestly go wrong with the high amount of positives about this perfume.. Well nothing was wrong and I am extremely happy that I had pulled the trigger on the blind buy.


    I may have did a post about this but I did purchase Spiritueuse Vanille a while back and sold it as fast as I could say I didn't like it, sellers win but my loss as I did not refund the price I paid. However what I did like .. actually love about SDV was the opening bottle/ initial spray. Very rich and warm vanilla extract ..kind of. That warm vanilla vibe I thought would last on me DID NOT. Now Rahgba oh my lord. RAHGBA to make a long story short is Spiritueuse Double Vanille's opening spray ..... all the way. As much as it sounds ludicrous it is actually true. This vanilla is nearly identical to SDV. It has the exact boozy extract vibe SDV lovers thrive off. I am starting to freak out am I really smelling SDV in a $25 bottle? This is a masterpiece from Lattafa Perfumes. I do not get any FRAPIN 1270 vibe from this but maybe the comparisons between the two are actually the bottle as they are shaped similar. I also cannot comment on 24 Gold by Scentstory as I have never sampled that fragrance. This fragrance also has beastly longevity and is kind of cloying but not a nuclear biohazard like Egoiste by Chanel.


    10/10 postage and shipping from the seller as well. Located in Bahrain, Virgoperfumes is the company. They had packed the perfume with bubblewrap all round. They also bubblewrapped the bottle itself. Shows they care about their customers and are really repping that good reputation voted by their customers. Ordered 2 Fridays ago and arrived today in Australia. Sellers also shipped a day after purchase.

    Noted. Thank you. I never developed a good source in Bahrain, and I've been thinking that I need one, so this gives me the courage to begin looking there.

    This one is similar to 24 Gold.

    Raghba is a sleeper. Had it for about a year now and it does have that 24 Gold vibe. Wore it a lot this past winter. Longevity is at least 10 hours. For $25.00 you get niche quality. 8/10
