    Glad you liked them. Would wait for your detailed reveiw.

    You could use summer scent in winters but certain heavy scents become headache or nausea inducing in summer but smell heavenly in winter. Leather is basically a winter note

    cuz of our cooking style in our desi homes where almost every food prep starts with frying onions into hot oil, our fresh clothes (sitting in the closet for the next morning at office) pick the fumes and vapors of this stinky frying oil.
    After being exposed to it for our entire lives, we get immune to this odor and hence we can't pick it up in our fresh clothes. But non-desis and their dogs pick up this smell from meters away.

    You may think that you just put on a fresh shirt and you are all good and dandy for office, yeah right!
    That shirt, pants, and socks were in the closet (100 meters away from the kitchen) but you guys cooked, Haleem, remember? hehehe - so there you go. All clothes get screwed up now.

    So yeah, you can live in denial as much as you want but we desis need a lot of perfume on our fresh clothes due to our domestic cooking practices.



    After shower, I use Old Spice Fiji body spray

    Perfume
    The best one I've used for great comments is J. Khumar.
    I mean, white chicks, Arabic, Desi, blacks, Spanish, Chinese.. I mean you name it and chicks loved the scent.

    So for Eid parties, Jumma Prayers, desi parties etc .. This is my thing to go.

    [​IMG]

    For general use, daily office use etc? ..... third generation user of Old Spice Cologne spray.
    Reasonably priced, great for daily use.

    [​IMG]

    And for executive parties, American get togethers, Christmas parties, and other outdoor activities ...

    Ralph Lauren's Polo Sport is my reliable choice

    Le Male or Ultra Male?

    Too sweet for my liking

    Has to be 'le male' for sure.

    I wouldn't say it is too sweet tbh, in the summer it really sticks man and can leave you clothes smelling beautiful for days.

    Defo a hit with the women tho man.

    Women like sweeter scents so sweet vanilla/tonka bean scents are mostly hit among women. This is why Le male Le Male alongwith One Million were once the ultimate clubbing scents. Loud, sweet and in your face. Le Male has been reformulated though, ultra male is a more refined version of Le Male.

    True, Ultra Male was a bit off-putting, never found it as delicate as Le Male and as sticking to be entirely honest with you.

    1 Million is another good one, though one I rarely use.

    One that always disappointed me was Sauvage, smelled decent but you would have to keep the bottle on you and spray periodically to ensure you could smell it lol.

    Quite surprised tbh as Sauvage is one of the better performing designer scents both longevity and projection wise. Lasts 8+ hours easily.

    Always a difference in claim and actuality. In my experience it didn't last long or the fragrance would subside quite easy, whereas for example Jean Paul would last days.

    Fresh scents are always less performing than the heavy/sweet ones. Sauvage is way better performance wise compared to other famous fresh scents like Blu De Chanel or Acqua Di Gio etc

    If not, give it a shot, you will probably get lots of good comments.

    Janan is one of the hundred aventus clones. Try Club De Nuit Intense from Armaf. You'll get it in the same price but way better both scent and performance wise

    Don't like oud based perfumes.
    I took the advise of madgenius and really liked both rasasi al wisam day and layuqawam. Alwisam day is for your everyday office perfume but can be over all a great party perfume too. Layuqawam is a bit strong and can be a great "occasion" perfume. On the contrary didn't like al wisam evening at all it smelled like spirit.

    Both are clones of very famous high end fragrances. Tom Ford Tuscan Leather and Creed Silver Mountain Water. Keep La Yuqawam for winter evenings, works best in colder weather.

    Quality and performance of Rasasi scents is amazing considering the price.

    Try Rasasi Fattan too, it's a clone of Terre D Hermes. You'd love it if you like Citrus based fragrances. You'll get 50ml bottle for around 1800-2000. Good for Karachi weather too

    Janaan if you get it under 1500 and you are not bothered about performance. It's a nice scent but hardly lasts for 2-3 hours.

    Khumar is a decent one performance wise

    by the way there is a community/website called scents n stories which sells their impressions of popular perfumes in affordable rates/bottles. it has been recommended by a lot of people so you guys can check it out aswell. i am going to try few and let you all know.

    You should check Rasasi Shurah also. The other day one sales lady at Rasasi told me it is the most sold perfume of Rasasi currently. I am already using it and it is very good. Will cost around PKR 4,000

    Scents n stories make clones/impressions of scents just like Armaf/Rasasi but on local and much smaller level

    Their are many local impression/clone houses. Rawaha, Raza perfumes, Throne perfumes and many others. Dua is another quite famous clone house but even their impressions are too expensive 5-6k for 30ml. Haven't tried Scents n stories but my experience with local clone houses hasn't been great so I stick to Rasasi/Armaf when it comes to clones.

    I did get scents n stories impression of Aventus creed also Gucci guilty. While the impressions smelled good and the projection was fine aswell but it lasted to around 2 to 3 hours. Got them pretty cheap for 800rs each only in a promotion.

    On clothes yes if you don’t wash. Some forms of Oudh can lasts for months on clothes. But those are pure oil of oudh and not perfume.
