    Default Parfums De Marly Oajan

    Just purchased this gem and was interested in how often you all wore this fragrance?

    To me, this seems like a fragrance that would perform well in the cooler months.
    I live in the south so the cooler weather hangs around for about 3/4 months.

    This is an excellent fragrance and I love the note development but am curious about your experience rocking this in the warmer months.

    Thank you for your feedback.

    I've worn it a few times even in summer here in Germany, when it was above 25°C.
    It's admittedly not the best weather to rock this scent, but it worked better than expected. Just go light on the trigger, I'd say 3 sprays max.

    Thank you for the feedback.

    I tested it on today in Atlanta where the weather is in the low 90's.
    One spray of Oajan was more than enough.

    This is a wonderful fragrance, my favorite in the Marly line.

    It is indeed! I've sent a few PdM samples to another fragrance enthusiast who has not smelled them before - and Oajan was the one, which really wow'ed him and he immediately wanted to purchase a full bottle.

    I wear it from time to time. Bought it when it first came out and I love it.

    I enjoy the initial couple hours of spraying it, but the dry down sucks.

    I had a few samples of it at one point. I reached for it a few times for initial impressions and early wearings but didn't enjoy it much after that so I didn't wear it anymore.

    Great stuff, very powerful!
    It is great as an Ambre Narguile replacement/alternative, as it is pretty much the same, though more potent and a good bit cheaper.
    The additional powerful and the just slightly drier scent does make it a bit rougher in the drydown, but that can be solved by spraying a bit less.

    I like it but it can be cloying and I don't think its that versatile because I would never wear it in summer. Just doesnt work in the heat IMO. I like Layton much more (from PdM) because I think it does much better in warm weather. I find myself reaching for Herod more than Oajan (again, out of my PdM frags) in colder weather also. Personal preference I guess.
