About this deal

I can't find right words to explain how much I enjoyed this pretty,yummy,super feminine scent.indeed lovely and though very similar,I like it even more than "sweet like candy".longevity doesn't pass moderate but it's not faint.I'm happy with it's sillage. The rose is very gently coming through, along with some more 'garden', and a lovely, light jasmine. I would imagine that this wears quite close to the skin, which is no bad thing, and needs to be kept away from the public for the first 30 minutes.

And yes, as someone previously mentioned, it is a lot like Poeme, if my memory serves me well. I can see me wearing this a lot.This settles down quite nicely after the first >30 minutes smelling of very ripe banana-flavoured tuberose with a good measure of sugar on top, although that might be because I didn't let it settle after being delivered. I know from past experience, that these oils get very 'shook up' by the whole delivery process, and need to 'rest' for a few days before their real character shows. My bad, I can't wait to try a new one.

if mosquitoes could wear perfume im sure this would be their chanel no 5 in terms of popularity not smell. It does smell better on the skin that it does straight from the bottle, like most other Al Rehab oils. It has a slightly musky drydown, less so than my other oils, but the muskiness does present itself. Unfortunately, by the time it's drying into something other than a Febreze dupe, the scent is pretty much gone. Sillage is also minimal, unless you use a quarter of the bottle right after a shower. I knew it was going to be a light scent when I bought it, though. I must warn, though that to reach the beautiful dry down of Bakhour, you have to get past the initial brassy cheapness of the first hour, which I loathe. Some of these Al-rehabs can turn out to be gems after it develops, but it seems that all of them have a strong, intense, often unpleasant beginning.Note - For those ready to give up on Al Rehab entirely, please consider trying Choco Musk, Soft, Sandra, Lovely, and Fantastic. Those with 'masculine' taste should try Space, U2 Man, Dakar, and Al Fares. These are more western in style. ALL will give you very good value. Usually a scent named 'bakhour' (a form of middle eastern incense!) would attract me like a bee to honey. Not so here. The reviewer who summarized this particular Al Rehab as 'sour fruit and detergent' did us all a favor! Yes, there's a tangy quality that could be good - if it didn't descend into funky acid territory. NO incense, depth, or beauty appeared. I tried it repeatedly in all kinds of weather and got nowhere. So when my dearest friend begged me to pass it along - Voila. History! What Bakhour DOES smell a lot like is Al Rehab Mokhalat. (Also with a similar label!) Interestingly, though it contains nearly all the same notes and clearly shares a strong chemical similarity, Mokhalat actually appeals to me. It's rounded out with medicinal oud, wood, and possibly saffron, feeling more balanced and earthy. Somehow it even seems a little pseudo-intellectual to me! Oddly attractive, rather than repulsive.
