    Default Blind buy Safari Extreme?

    I love Creeds except MI and love Bois 1920 and dislike dry and dull... like tom Ford plum japonaise ( might have butchered) but love Dolce Di Giornio.
    I dislike most Amouge .
    I like Lyric, dia, and jubilation.. but just meh.

    I love Satorial but just like or dislike all other penhaligams I've tried.

    I like flowers fruits and woods it seems.

    Also love Eau de NY Bond no 9

    I'm looking for a 1 quiver killer from a different house that has super performance.
    Will Safari do it?
    Any other suggestions? Niche only.. oh and I love santal33
    Thanks!

    If it works with your budget - sure.
    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 see that you like lyric man, I am very positive that you will like asq black incense spray. Don't judge the book by the cover . There is no real incense in the base. However , the scent is beautiful light rose water masculine scent. I like black incense a lot

    Safari oil is great unisex some florals and silleage is awesome . You should give it a try . I think only cost $80

    If you are into oil you should try the following from asq :

    1- heritage blend oil
    2- safari oil
    3- Kashmir musk ( expensive )

    Note : One me safari oil performance is much better compare to the extreme

    Serisouly blown away! Litterly all aspects..
    I will admit I Huffed the black inscense like a Creed at first and almost passed out and then couldn't get it out of my nose for 4 hours, the rose I was convinced was gonna be just to much. Reminds me of Mancera Aoud Sand Roses. ..
    After I got my nose back I kept getting this Yin Yang wiffs as it was on my fore arm, it was like a dirty and alluring one second next 5 seconds were aquatic and com hither. INTRIGUED, now ive learned not to huff these as a Creed I have had the chance to rock them all weekend. Most the time I had black on left forarm and Safari on the right, and now I can say I am blown away.
    I feel like I finnnaly get it, Im already looking up others to buy
    The black is so different, its sexy, sporty, dirty, alluring, intriguing, yet familiar. ya ok Im gonna call it dirty sport parfume.
    Extreme ha.. its good, real good, unreal smoovness.

    Next up I;m thinking:
    Gentleman Secret by Arabian Oud
    Arabian Legend by Arabian Oud
    Arabian Knight Arabian Oud
    Thoughts?

    That's great to hear . Did you buy safari extreme as well or just safari? I saw safari and black incense in your picture .

    I agreed with your interpretation of black incense . Did you find safari oil too flowery? I know it had mix reviews . I use it all the time and I am not really a floral guy.

    Unfortunately , I don't have an experience from your list of Arabian oud . However my favorite from arabian oud is "woody intense" and "kalamet black" not regular kalamet .

    I have all of the perfumes in your quote and I would suggest (in order):

    1. Gentleman Secret by Arabian Oud has been described as Egoiste Platinum on steroids and is excellent for year round, especially hot weather.

    2. Arabian Legend by Arabian Oud Is my absolute favorite as well as my signature scent! I would have listed this as first as it gets a lot of compliments and is amazing (see my review) but It is very potent, possibly too potent for hot weather. This has been out of stock on the Arabian Oud website since January; possibly due to Mysore Sandalwood being so hard to obtain now, due to the Indian government. Your best bet would be ebay.

    3. Arabian Knight Arabian Oud is subtle yet strong and can be worn year round easily. The strong part is kind of peppery cinnamon. Really nice smooth amber fragrance that means business.

    Man, your review about Arabian legend made me look for it in my cabinet to try it again,
    Despite of the great performance, this perfume made me feel sick many times before on winter and spring, so I decided to give it up and stop wearing it.
    Unfortunately, Arabian Oud is the least trustworthy house in ME perfume industry.
    They use a lot of synthetic grade stuff in their perfumes, also I personally hate their sprayer and cap interiors, they are made of cheap plastic and it is the root cause of perfume quality & smell degradation overtime.
    They only two product I advice anyone to try and own from this house are
    Shahrayar for men (peppery heaven) & blue oud set (leathery/smokey oud & ambergris silage monster)
    I’m sure you will get surprised by the quality of these two specially the blue oud one

    He just needs to bleach-blond it and it'll be 1997 all over again! I had to give you props on that, belated as it is.

    Some of you don't understand properly arabic scents and others have no f... idea what it is all about.

    There are a few arabian prefumes houses who are way above the so called niche masters in the west and Abdul Samad al Qurashi is one of this houses.

    For example lots of ppl compare Safari Extreme with the shitty Tuscan Leather. It's like you are comparing Lamborghini Aventador with Fiat Stilo.
