This was my very first AKAF Oud.
It is a lovely, soft and sweet Oud with plenty longevity.
Unmistakably Oudy but with a vibrant leathery character and some softer notes after a while.
A definite must have from AKAF.

I didn't actually buy this: it was included as a free sample in my order. (Thank you!) I actually like it better than some of the ones I purchased :) Softly woodsy and leathery, suitable for any occasion, season or sex. Great for times when a more animalic oud might not be appropriate. I find it very likeable.

Very gentle, refreshing and crisp accord.
The white pepper removes the pungent/sour citrus of the lemon, and the lemon softens the pepper, making it very soothing. The whole accord is grounded in the gentle musk, soft leather and aggressive sandalwood, which contrast well and become a fresh woodsy accord.
Despite being the cheapest of the oud attars, it is my favorite scent from AFAK (I own total of 6 scents; 1 business class, 3 ouds, a white musk, and a Master Chef scent.) Will probably change once I experience many others, which I just ordered.
Very gentle. Probably a good jumping off point for AKAF, or Arabian fragrances in general. A peppery citrus topnote accord, followed by a leathery wood accord. That's about it. It's simple and effective. It dips your toes in the world of oud. Suitable for daytime wear and not likely to overwhelm or offend. The note list describes this pretty well, so if you like any of those listed, give this a shot.
