I love Shikai products because they are free from petrol products and parabens. This lotion is full of great stuff for your skin (borage oil, aloe, jojoba oil...), and is not greasy. It's even recommended for diabetics and those with eczema.

I love that it's fragrance free.

I enjoyed this so much more than I thought I would! At first sniff it struck me as odd-just like Angel did back in the day. I knew there had to be something to it when I kept going by to sniff it at the counter.
It starts of loud. This is sort of an ocean berry fragrance. It's alot of fun and last a long time on skin. It conveniently comes in a variety of sizes.

Oak Moss in abundance!!!! If you love oak moss then this is a MUST for you! This is terrific alone, but could easily be layered with anything. It could easily be worn by a man or a woman. I thought Samurai was the bomb for oakmoss, but it is much more green. This is just smooth and rich with just a tad of sweetness.

Ok, ok, I can't believe I fell for this. I have finally succumbed to the fruity floral category. I could swear this has berries in it though I see no listing of it in the notes, but perhaps that is the olfactory illusion.

This is strong and long lasting! I immediately detected patchouli combined with a variety of spices. Unfortunately, I couldn't find an official listing of notes, but it's supposed to be like walking in an arabian bazaar. There is definitely cinnamon and cardamon. I don't detect cumin, so cumin haters don't worry.
If you want something "noir" and spicy then …

This review is for the 5.5 ml sample purchased from the profumo.it website.

This is the fragrance that started me on Dubrana Dominique! A MUAer slipped this in as an extra in a swap and I was hooked! The oakmoss reeled me in. I had to have it! I have since found out that this had vetiver in it and is classified as a "cologne" on the site. But be warned-this is long …

This review is based on the 5.5ml sample I purchased from the profumo.it website. Fragrance notes are Labdanum, benzoin, frankincense, agar, tonka, tobacco, tuberose, and damask rose.

I love this fragrance! I didn't get any tuberose or tobacco, but lots of labdanum and frankincense. There's a bit of smokiness in the opening (the tonka?) and the fragrance is going strong 5 …

I adore this fragrance! This was slipped in as an extra in a swap and I'm hooked! There's not much I can add to the previous positive reviews except to say that I find this to be a stunning and sophisticated fragrance. Since I am neither I will wear it with a T-shirt and jeans. It's dry, deep, and peppery. I love it!
