Because I love Chamade and many reviewers claimed that Nahema was similar, I bought a sample of Nahema in the vintage PdT concentration. Unfortunately, to my schnoz, the only thing these two fragrances have in common is that they are both Guerlains.
I seldom dislike a scent this much, especially an older Guerlain. Nahema's opening is truly horrendous: a strange and sour, baby-vomit note that gradually slinks away, only to be replaced by a rather plasticky fake hint of peach. Slowly, a vague impression of a very peculiar, convenience store rose rises to the surface and loiters there.
I'm afraid the intricacies of this perfume are lost on me but that doesn't mean I'd give it a thumbs down. My nose is not experienced or sophisticated enough to appreciate this, although I did find this an overdose of rose (too strong for me). My body chemistry and tastes could have changed. Many of the notes listed are ones I really like, but this fragrance comes off as very heavy like vintage velvet curtains, and I'm not in the mood for heavy fragrances. I'm glad I had just a sample.
