Ahhh. Chergui... the first time I smelled it, given the board love, I was expecting the second coming of the god of perfume. I was not chuffed over it. I preferred Douce Amere. But then... a warm...

Stale Peeps in a dirty ashtray. Cloying sweetness rolled in choking tobacco ash. That, sadly, is all I get here. And I was convinced that this would be heaven based on reviews & published notes!

Chergui is some spectacular stuff. I admire it, I often get the urge to nip a spray from my sample decant, and then all day I marvel at how good I smell. On my skin, it's a combination of rose...

This is fabulous. It's what I think of as a "dirty" scent - which is a compliment - meaning that it is sexy and raunchy, the very opposite of prim and proper. Despite the overt sexiness, it also...

My uncle, just a youngun, made a wooden treasure box in December of 1937. He died in 1944 in another land, and to him I'm sure, another world, during World War II. His treasure box was set aside...

Chegui is a syrupy, elixir type of scent with honey, tobacco, leather, woods, perfectly balanced. A masterpiece. Unfortunately it has an "animalic" musk in the base that comes up in the drydown...

I have the type of chemistry that tends to suck the life out of a perfume so I always like to wear something that is considered a strong scent. While in Paris I was assured by a saleswoman that...

This is one of those few scents that on first sniff you go "OH!". Strangely enough, Chergui is what I had hoped Boxeuses would be like. Chergui starts with a deep spicy honey-tobacco with the...

Just received my samples from Aedes after much anticipation and so far I really like it...I have a feeling I'm going to need a full sized bottle of this when Autumn approaches! It is just...

Although Chergui didn't hit the spot with me, but I had to admit it is a wonderfully exquisite perfume. It is rich and intricate but multifaceted so that it works all year round. It is a scent that...

Chergui, you have mesmerised me! You eloped me, dressed in your Eastern costume on a camel, and took me to places far and magical. Yes, initial medicinal notes may hinder a bit the way to an...

Love it. I pick up the honey and tobacco more than anything else. I am typically a lover of woodsy, vanilla and other similar notes so I was not surprised to like this.

Cherugi is the newest addition to my Pantheon of lifetime scents. Many are called but few are chosen, after all. After trying a sample at Aedes, I was intrigued by Christopher Sheldrake's...

Notes: tobacco leaf, honey, orris, sandalwood, amber, musk, incense and rose. This fragrance opens with the sweetness of honey and the smokiness of tobacco leaf. The tobacco note is...

I wish this worked for me but unfortunately the dry down smelled of creosote....Could not move past that note so I won't be purchasing.

Wow, given the hype, I would've bought this one scent un-smelled, as I often do. Thanks to LuckyScent, I didn't have to. Didn't work on me...got that 'deodorant' dry-down.

Stunning, and utterly unique. I love hay absolute, and this is really a hay scent. Tobacco, immortelle, spices, and who knows what, this is an amazing olfactory experience. Very rich and intense,...
