This makes me think of a cross of Samarkan and Shah whosit &Mumtaz Majal. BIG throw.
Ha! Sometimes the short reviews cover the bases.

Now that it's dried down more, it is its own thing. Whoa, *swoon!
Exotic, spicy, resinous oriental, heavy hitter.
A decant probably will not be enough.

I tried this one again today. Out of the vial, it was all Spicy carnation and white oude. White oude is somtimes tricky for me too, but here it is working. On my way to work, I was getting incense which must the bakhoor. It's got great throw, I may have mentioned that. By the time I got to work the black musk popped in to say Hello. No idea about mujmua. Googled it but that only gave me a very vague idea. Now, several hours later, I'm barely getting any carnation; it's just a sort of well blended spicy musky incensey scent.
