Halfeti draws inspiration from the lavish goods traded with Turkey: exotic florals, spices, soft leathers and precious fabrics. The fragrance is named for the small Turkish village of Halfeti, where enchanting “black” roses grow on the banks of the Euphrates river. Dark and mysterious, the roses are an intense shade of crimson, so dusky they appear to be black. Halfeti is an exquisitely opulent woody floral, dazzling in the glow of luxurious golden saffron, decorated with bright citrus, green armoise and woody cypress. An exquisitely multifaceted rose is set like a precious jewel amongst a silken bouquet of sweet florals. The lavish drydown with its overdose of dusky patchouli heart leads into a melange of decadent resins, oud and amber, alongside velvet textured sandalwood and a suede-like leather.

Very nice oriental scent. Almost gender neutral. I’ve had many compliments - it lasts long too!
