    THIS IS MY FIRST MIN NEW YORK SCENT AND I HATE TO ADMIT IT, BUT I WEAR FRAGRANCE FOR THE LADIES- AND THIS ONE IS A REAL PANTY DROPPER. HONESTLY I HOPE THIS DOESN’T OFFEND ANYONE OUT THERE, BUT I’M JUST SAYIN, WHEN I WEAR THIS…. EVERYTHING WORKS OUT. I’M AN INVESTMENT BANKER BUT I DO LIKE TO HAVE MY FUN. SO MAYBE I’M JUST A CLOSET FRAG HEAD 😉

    There is a market here in Kuwait called Souq Sharq, named after the desert wind that blows from the East (Chergui, pronounced Sharqi, is named after it). The air around the souq is redolent of spices and incense – shopkeepers burn incense in doorways. The market sits right by the sea and on emerging from the souq, with the scent of incense wafting around, you are hit with the rich, briny, ozonic scent of the sea. Dahab is on the money.

    Man. I love the shit out of this scent. It’s beautiful. I grew up next to the ocean. And this is the fizziest, sparkly, most enlivening rendition of fresh ocean air that I’ve ever experienced. It’s cooling and refreshing and jarringly real. Totally transportative. That fresh fizzy ocean breeze comes smashing off the top and then pops up mysteriously as with a change of the winds in the dry down. But cold ocean air in the scent moves brilliantly in an out of a spicy gourmandish ensemble of warming, mouth watering, celebratory feast.

    It’s just. Amazing. I feel alive, free, creative, and engaging with this scent on.

    I’m definitely getting a bottle of this. This is one of those niche scents that is worth the price tag. I wish it was cheaper because I’d wear it all the time. But it’s still worth it, because there’s nothing like it. And it’s totally amazing. I’ve decided I’ll always have this in my collection. I hope they always make it. At some point I’ll stock up on it when they have a holiday sale for their members.

    This is also an amazing store. The coolest place to shop for scents ever. It’s like a private club. And the sales people are experts. If you’re in New York, you gotta stop by this place. Super cool people. I’ve seen the owner interviewed on youtube and he was just as cool in person. They remind me of Andy Tauer’s vibe in terms of how they properly engage their audience–just chill, down to earth, creative, and artistic people.

    This is fantastic fragrance. Dare I say masterpiece. The spice, cumin, incense, and Oud make this a dark fragrance but there’s this fresh aquatic vibe to it which I may say is brilliant. Everything is blended beautifully. One of my best purchases of 2014.

    This has a pure malt/petroleum smell to it. Almost like thick tar meets heavy leather and they had a child

    I love it

  6. Mikeyd

    Actually now that I’m wearing it 2 hours in i get histories amrarem mixed with farenheit that’s exactly what it smells like 8/10

  7. Shanester66

    This is fantastic stuff…to me it has a L`Air du Desert Marocain feel to it…full bottle worthy for sure.

    *****/5

    So warming and inviting…truly 1 of my favs for 2014…if not my fav.

    Dahab is a former Bedouin fishing village on the southeast coast of Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula that’s a popular tourist destination, especially for diving. The name translates to “gold,” yet the synesthetic impression of the perfume is more of a coppery silk. It’s a phenolic, quasi-exotic scent in which smoked woods and spices are cast as the main players with emphasis on the spice—specifically nutmeg. There’s a slight culinary twist, and a hint of Black Agar-style sweetness, but those facets are suppressed beneath what is essentially an olfactory portrait of a bustling spice market. Warm, balanced, yet restrained, a leathery saffron pairs with the nutmeg to produce bustling dynamics. As the scent settles, it becomes a tad simple with the spices burning off to reveal a circumspect cedar, but it’s comfortable all the same.

  9. Clayton

    Dahab is the scent of burning embers, a charcoal fire wafting smoke through the winding alleyways of an exotic market, calling its morning patrons to wake and begin the day. Dahab’s ashen grey notes are given depth with wood, incense and a salt accord. Swirling in a halo of exotic spices, agarwood takes centre stage once the aforementioned notes wear down and Dahab becomes a pyre of burning bakhoor.

  10. Lee-Ann

    I could have easily included Dahab in my Summer category due to the spicy heat reminiscent of hot Arabian nights! But I felt like the glowing spices and smokey nuances reminded me more of the fiery shades of the turning leaves of Fall.

    Smokey and sweet, almost mesquite. Sticky sweet Oud mixed with Smokey Incense and dry Woods. I would have preferred to smell even more spiciness to balance out the sweet Oud, but this scent definitely transports you to a far off land.

  11. Christos

    Dahab is a leather backpack full of oriental spices, with a vanilla scented love letter hidden somewhere. The vanilla note makes this very interesting to my nose because it is a very counter-intuitive occidental vanilla that characterises what is in general an oriental voyage perfume. I couldn۪t help but think of L۪Air du Desert Marocain when I smelled this, but the cool vanilla note gives this a different, more approachable and more interesting vibe.
