Feedback for Harem
"Harem is much more interesting than I expected. Standard oriental motives – amber, soft brown leather, rose are mixed with something green and spicy that makes the composition authentic and light".
"Harem – something strange happened to it. I don't like it on my skin, like medicine and leather not only from the start but later too, though some hours later warm wood appeared. Oh, how I like the tail… Sweet tender flowers of my childhood. I remember them well, they grow on meadow and smell tarn and a bit of honey. I'm enjoying it from the distance…"
"Harem revealed itself unexpectedly softly, it starts with green and fresh notes. I did not feel the spice and tarn notes.) I hear some sour and spicy flower accompanied with rose or ylang and some fruity, citrus and lemon notes. This fragrance is for day wear and it cheers up a bit. Like when you put on a new dress, try new make-up and add chic to this mood with this sparkling fragrance".
"Sia - Midnight decisions in my headphones. The fragrance starts with Korean "Star" ointment. Cold. Night. Indifferent stars know nothing of a human shrimp. I feel wood, jasmine, amber, Aura by Mugler. I think my skin is not warm enough for the perfume to reveal itself at its best. On the other hand, when I think that harem is a life time prison for hundreds of women, I really get chills.
A bit later the perfume becomes warmer, but the feeling of universal solitude does not leave. I am Russell's teapot flying fast in orbit. Or maybe I don't exist at all".
"On glass – suave ensemble of gardenia, jasmine and ylang ylang. Moving slowly, exquisite, like oriental beauty from old painting. And at the same time the tail of cardamom and a drop of musk, they make this exotic white flowers sound original. Despite of rather thick cloudy fragrance and persistence, the fragrance is very delicate. I can't call it weightless, but you expect from this kind of perfume typical obtrusiveness piercing through to the stomach and brain. Harem lacks it:) An interesting effect instead – it fills all the room after five minutes from putting on skin.
Shows itself slowly like flower petals. Becomes colder and bitter in the middle, cardamom and gardenia come forward. In the end woody notes softened with jasmine are more active. By the way, jasmine is very beautiful here – tender and spacious, like you touch real petals. And gardenia is of the same beauty.
On skin - jasmine, cardamom, ylang and musk. These are the main notes that are on skin and create beautiful fragrant cocoon at the same time. «Simple, but not a simpleton» fragrance, it does not surprise but is totally charming from the start. Very warm and feminine, sits well on skin, very volatile. It is perfectly balanced – even in the theatre no one will get disappointed with it. In the end gardenia and woody notes are the only ones left.
"Warm languid Orient, jasmine grandiflorum without indol, maybe with cardamom, cinnamon and cumin and a hint of incense (myrrh?) the feeling of lacquer. Very accurate balance of notes, nothing comes out of line and the fragrance smells perfect. Jasmine here sounds in the background, this is notable instead of its usual loudness. Skillful composition, everything is beautifully performed, nothing to complain about. All is noble and in order, though harem is hierarchic structure with lots of fuss, constant intrigues and fights if not for domination then for survival. All indecent wives have already been poisoned, strangled with silky rope, and all decent ones have been mentioned in the list of the favorites with an access to the sultan's body according to the timetable. Everybody is happy. And I like it!"
"Harem really smells so that you associate it with Orient. A bit animalic musky smell of sweaty bodies, wooden decorations of the palace, and all this smells of honey-sweet arabian perfume or incense. Woody notes or some intensive flowers make these walls a bit alarming. The line of clear and clean smell in the sweet bodily swirl. In total brief illusion of immersion, but who says that you should dream for a long time?"

"Floral fragrance. Rose garden with floribunda flowers. Rose oil for women's skin beauty. Bright rose of Taif. Lokum made of rose petals. Strange thing – a hint of lilac. You feel all this if you move further the bend of elbow from your nose. And if you put it closer, you feel wood anf some rose leaves. A bit sour. And some white flowers, a bit bitter".
