RHM's Review of Dubai Black Sapphire by Bond No. 9

Goes on strong, so be fore warned. This leans masculine & that's OK, I wear MANY masculine scents & don't consider the gender designation a deterrant at all.

Even though oud is down the list of note, it pretty much dominated the overall experience from the get go. That's not a bad thing, per se, especially if you are a fan of oud centric scents.

(I am not.)

So why the thumbs up from someone who doesn't love oud? Well, Black Sapphire has a lot going on....a LOT.

It's complex, has excellent longevity & a sillage that doesn't knock you over. Black Sapphire entices; "come closer & smell the nuances".

Once the initial blast of oud dried down, the blend of neroli, beeswax, Turkish rose & tolu balsam were united to create a cozy....I can't get enough of this smell...effect that lasted well into the next day.

Black Sapphire is complex and a joy to experience. I think it's the best in the Dubai collection.
