Another oil from British Arabian perfumer Al Aneeq and very much the partner to the Oud Malaki ("Oud of Princes") that I was enjoying last week. The florals are beautifully combined and then muted behind the artemisia for a masculine take, something you'll see from many, many of the more powerhouse frags and I believe it's for this purpose, else the frag could be more on the unisex or even feminine side. It is most definitely leather, but in a fresh leather shoes kinda way, rather than a well worn baseball glove or old pilot's helmet. The woods are sublime. Bravo!

It's another that has an EDT and EDP variant available in bottles, something which I am very likely to buy.
