As Sawira Perfume

As Sawira Perfume by Penhaligon's, First released in 2015, As Sawira by British fragrance house Penhaligon's is a compelling woody chypre cologne with an oud and incense twist . The top notes are sharp and striking: bittersweet bergamot softened by the intimate and earthy nuances of saffron. The bold opening quickly mellows into a warm, inviting floral heart of red rose and subtly narcotic jasmine, pricked with the light clove-spiced tones of piquant carnation. Oud and amber define the final dry ... Read More

Comments about As Sawira By Penhaligon's:

Penhaligon's ultra-premium As Sawira has a distinctly woody character, oud being the dominant note from spray on to wash off. The reason for the less-than-perfect score is the fact that there is nothing to distinguish this fragrance from a plethora of oud fragrances from other perfume/cologne makers. It's a fairly straightforward oud (i am assuming that the large price bump is because Penhaligon's is deploying genuine oud oils as opposed to synthetic - there is nothing in the fragrance to suggest it is a synthetic knock-off oud). At least the French makers attempt to differentiate their oud offerings by adding interesting undertones/overtones such as myrrh, frankincense, kyara, complex florals, etc. I wouldn't pay full retail for this latest number from P's, but if you can manage to get your hands on a sample or a severely discounted tester, by all means do so!
