Would I buy this product again? Well absolutely...but that's not the problem. My prblem is: where can I get a replacement once I run out?
If I could have only one fragrance in my wardrobe, it would be a toss up between Sarah and Amouage Gold. If I were to figure in the factor that Amouge Gold is more available than Sarah is, then this would definitely be the single item I treasure the most (keep in mind that I have about 100 different fragrances)...that is, until someone can point me to a reliable source.
I'm not sure where to begin to describe the fragrance itself. If you're looking for something modern, then this isn't it for you. This isn't your J. Lo, Britany Spears, Jessica Simpson, whatever mass marketed celebrity fragrance nor is it something like Clinique Happy or those dime a dozen trendy scents...watery, ozony, chemical smelling, etc.
For me, it is a rich, comforting second skin scent with the occasional wiff of something exotic. I would personally describe it as "organic" in so much as that it changes based on skin chemistry and blends in with the right person. That's so unlike all those mass marketed perfumes that smells exactly the same on everyone...which happens to be loud and obviously fake. In the end, you don't wear those fragrances, they wear you.

I was told that I shouldn't pay attention to the marketing blurb on this stuff, that men in the middle-east wear heavily floral perfumes, after all:
"Sarah (Concentrate) (Concentrated Perfume Oil)
Carrying with it the grace of royalty, Sarah has been created for women who dream of a princess's life. The fragrance elevates the wearer into an enchanting world of regal grandeur and timeless charm. A floral symphony played in perfect unison with Musk, Saffron, Orris and Sandalwood, Sarah is a creation ... for the princess in you. Sarah is presented in an elegant dome shaped bottle with a hexagonal base, its golden cap and straight sides respectively portraying the dome and walls of a royal palace. The bottle slides into a golden base which has the intricate design of a royal throne. The green tassel on the cap further enhances the majestic appearance of the product."
I've completely fallen for this beautiful golden stuff, it's just delicious, and really, look at the notes: orris, sandalwood, saffron... it sounds luscious does it not? I can't pick out any of these particularly but the concoction is addictive. It's also great fun to just dab on a few smears of this potent product resulting in sillage supreme. It's said to be one of the most popular fragrances in the region. How divine that region must smell! My 3 ml bottle is a thick crystal paperweight of a vessel that is also a joy to wield, although personally I could do without the tassel since it can occasionally get mixed up with the wand when I apply. This came to me in a set of 4 oils from Ajmal, this one is my favorite and I sometimes wear it with the much more masculine classic oud-wood (leather?) smelling Danat Al Duniya (at least I think that's the one I wear it with).
It really is incredible that as much as I have enjoyed this perfume that to date I actually worn less than 1.5 ml!
Funny though that the very day I write a rave of this here it's not projecting much! I guess my skin has off days or it could be the weather or atmospheric pressure or somethin.
