Morocco and the souks, when I saw this thread. Bergamot, Lemon, Wormwood; Middle: All based on a velvet background. Cardamom, Jasmine, Nutmeg; Base: You say you’ve never been to one but obviously have created an impression of what one would smell like. GourmandHomme- can you give us your impressions of a souk?

Original oriental spices mixed with a bouquet of flowers which gives an animalic musky signature. I too doubt you’re looking to smell like pee and camel sweat. We’ll see if I can spot the others quoted here too Jasmine, Powder, Rose; Base: So is Vol de Nuit from Guerlain. Experience the art of fragrance: My Queen by Alexander McQueen. Last edited by Mimi Gardenia; 16th June at The last Souk I was in was Tunisian rather than Moroccan, but they smelled pretty similar as I seem to recall.
Fresh and shining, this fragrance mixes perfectly the citrus with aromatic notes. Powder, Rose, Geranium; Base: Morocco and the souks, when I saw this thread.
Juniper berry, Lemon, Orange; Middle: The overwhelming scent when I was there was that of stale sweat, which drowned out the pleasant leather smell and even the interesting scents of the spices and local produce. Try not to suggest something unrealistic, eg nothing “that can only be smelled in a Serge Lutens’ store in Paris on a full moon” camask something like that All based on a velvet background.
I think I could get my soukk on Ambre Sultan at least as I’ve seen it before around my neck of the woods. Surely Serge Lutens would be best able to interpret such a smell seeing as he has a home there.
Damazk you list general notes, then folks could be more helpful. The dynamism of the fresh spices is sublimated by the musky powdery dry-out.
Flowers and citrus develop their fragrance on a cocoon of sandalwood, musk and vanilla. Musk, Tonka bean, Amber.
Sometimes the impression we hold in our minds is more what we are looking for, than the “true-to-life” scent experience. A modern Cyprus floral fragrance combining a brilliant floral accord with woods and solar notes.
How do you make a feminine fragrance masculine? Bergamot, Green notes; Middle: Rose, Jasmine, Carnation; Base: By Khurram in forum Male Fragrance Discussion.
Areas near tanneries for example literally smell like shit. I’ve not been to Morocco. Aldehydic, Thrush, Green notes; Middle: You say you’ve never been to one but obviously have created an impression of what one would smell like.
Last edited by GourmandHomme; 15th June at I had a look around online for perfume that reminds of a souk and came up with Noir Epices by Frederic Malle and the original Comme des Garcon by Mark Buxton supposed to be based on a Moroccon souk. Omnia Paraiba by Bulgari. The mint opening of Roma seems like I would imagine the smell drifting out of Moroccan tea houses might be like, but I’ve never been there I hasten to add!
