    I'm working my way through a few samples. So far, I've not been impressed.
    Sultan Leather was a standard saffron and dark woods affair; Ottoman Amber seems to use an oud base I've smelt plenty of times before.

    I've smelled a few of the things of the house when I was in Italy. They have way too many perfumes. I enjoyed smelling many of them, but none was a big love. They seem to do best ambery-woody stuff. My sister gave me one from the single material line, woods, I believe, which is very enjoyable and right for the price. I remember noticing a saffron one in the regular collections (perhaps Byzantium saffron), but I think the saffron sadly didn't last too long.

    The brand is owned by the descendants of the successful creator of Pino silvestre (who probably don't own this anymore-not sure), who have created a perfume museum in Venice and opened a nice store there in an old farmacy. But instead of going towards the cheap and effective philosophy of Pino Silvestre, they seem to go for the fancyish market segment.

    I've never heard of this line. What do the bottles look like?

    Tried a few of these when I was last in Venice and Murano. Beautiful bottles and a plethora of scents.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    I have never seen the bottles in the US, I have only seen them ina couple of places in Italy. Some bottles are nice Murano-type glasses. The simpler collection of materials has roundish red metal bottles.
