Summary: Was skeptical about blind-buying a niche fragrance but Chergui did not let me down. This fragrance is hard to wear, not something I would recommend for everyday wear. On special occasions (preferably formal, semi-formal) this fragrance shines. Very sweet and dessert-like. I don't ever recommend blind-buying a niche fragrance but this was a success.
Amber and tobacco never mix well, except in this perfume

Summary: Nothing to say, I just love this smell! Smell of tobacco and Amber produces an amazing smell. However, I am a little bit disappointed with the sillage, it is soft and only get noticed (Definitely noticed) once someone gets close to you.
Summary: This fragrance has a few rave reviews around the web. Too much hype I would say. It is a nice, honeyed scent but not as sweet to make it a feminine fragrance. I would rather smell it on a man rather than a woman. Simply put, forget the hype, lower your expectations, and probably you get to enjoy it. I would classify this as a metrosexual type of fragrance that can be worn year round.
Summary: Although a hardcore Chanel Cuir de Russie lemming, even with the newer formulas, I venture into other leather scents now and again. Chergui is not a leather scent in how I sense leather, but certainly close. A bit of a powdery leather on me, but the drydown remedies that (clearly I'm not a fan of powdery scents).
Summary: This is a great fragrance for colder weather, but it can be cloying in the summer. It is long lasting and projects moderately. It also attracts lots of positive comments. Notes of tobacco, honey, hay, amber, musk, and vanilla can be discerned. It is a very complex fragrance. A winner from Lutens.
Summary: Wow! A thousand times wow! It is not often that I immediately am captivated by a fragrance, let alone a niche fragrance. I'm usually quite picky but when I received this bottle in a swap (thank you again Tomaz) just now and I took the bottle out of its very carefully packaged box, I got a very promising first whiff of what is inside this bottle. So, I took off the cap and sprayed some on, carefully. Just a little.
