Rania J. T. Habanero Eau de Parfum is a celebration of oud and tobacco, in that order, accentuated with pepper and cardamom within the opening, after which myrrh, incense, and leather-based shortly after. Within the drydown, the oud pulls again, the myrrh ramps up, and the sandalwood softens and provides a creamy, woody factor to the entire composition. The notes are listed as:
- high notes: pink and black pepper, cardamom

A peppery chew over a blanket of candy, spiced myrrh with sides of animalic, musky oud; pungent and bordering on evoking the total gamut of a barnyard. There was sweeet, smoky incense that billowed by means of. The cardamom offered marginal freshness with its camphor-like aromatics. It took about 10 minutes the smoke turned grayer, much less spiced and candy, whereas the oud darkened with leathery undertones and had much less pungency.
It was a reasonably heady, darker perfume with smoky, spicy incense and dry tobacco paired with animalic sides unfold over comfortable leather-based and candy myrrh buzzing beneath. The notes harmonized and have been well-blended after selecting my pores and skin for 20 minutes, and this had the impact of taming the extra excessive ends of the kinds of notes used.
Deeper into put on–about 90 minutes later–T. Habanero was drier, smokier, and aged with leather-based and tobacco, little oud, and the final tendrils of incense. It flitted between smoky and earthy between the leather-based and tobacco, and the oud, whereas delicate, added an animalic undertone that endured for one more three hours. The drydown on the sixth hour was comfortable, smoky leather-based and tobacco with delicate, candy myrrh.
For testing, I used 1/3 of a 0.7ml pattern vial dabbed to the underside and topside of my wrist space on my left arm. I used an unscented moisturizer previous to making use of the scent as that is additionally my swatching arm (aka, extremely parched at any given second) as I discovered scent didn’t maintain nicely right here in any other case.
I bought my pattern in January 2022; fragrances are identified to be reformulated over their lifetime , so be conscious of when a overview was made, e.g. a overview from 2010 could not mirror what the same-named fragrance smells like in 2022.
It lasted for six hours till it was a skin-scent and about 12 hours earlier than it was fairly tough to detect on my pores and skin. The sillage and projection have been average for the primary two hours.
It’s a stunning scent for individuals who love tobacco and leather-based and revel in lighter, much less pungent oud; the oud is stronger initially however weakens fairly a bit so it could be a pleasant technique to benefit from the character of oud with out the total blast of it. The smoke was sweeter and for a part of the wear and tear extra combined with incense, which I additionally loved. I really feel like I’ve a couple of favorites on this style, so I’ve to check down the highway to see if that is one thing I’ll exchange one with!
