Sheikh Al Faransi

Sheikh Al Faransi is a precious perfume with an oriental and authentic synergy coming from luxury ingredients. Complex and unique, powerful without being aggressive, it is our ultimate best seller. Robust and well balanced between woody and ambery notes, this fragrance has a pronounced sillage. Unique to the point that you will smell like no one else,  it is the perfume of choice for special occasions. This dark and exotic combination around an authentic ambergris has a subtle masculine style.

Got a sample of this - This is so good and so complex and unique (and totally wearable) - And the value so much exceeds the price charged - I got a sample - Then I came back to try to get a full bottle - But no 3ml - Not even 6ml - Will have to come back later

A beautiful smell, which is sweet in a masculine way. I just wish it were stronger on my skin (this is to do with the individual and not the product itself).

I adore this one. It smells like an exotic chewy candy--something with honey. Delicious. I ordered a sample and loved it so much I came back and bought a full tola. Well worth it!

The star of Al Faransi's Privée collection is a powerhouse, in reviews people often leave the discussion on performance of longevity and sillage at the end but I really feel this is something I need to bring up at the beginning, this beautiful concotion is robust and incredibly potent. It has such a pronounced sillage; I was chased down at a supermarket by the bakery lady for a couple of aisles to compliment me and ask me what I'm wearing. Rich velvety honey with authentic amber notes very beautifully blended however I wouldn't really classify this as a purely sweet scent its really more complex than that. There's a note of dark chocolate, there's no sweetnes from the chocolate note but its a very smooth raw cocoa nibs like chocolate note that also has a sort of leathery aspect to it, all this is grounded by a mysterious beutifull Oud (agarwood) and a dry sandalwood base. There's an element of exotic mystery to it with an undeniable sweetness, it's a rather masculine scent due to the leather and wood notes but I think some women can definitely pull it off. It's a head turner and it's like nothing I've ever smelled before and as I mentioned previously this is an absolute performance powerhouse. Abdul Karim Al Faransi is a dedicated genius and I highly respect his commitment to only using authentic natural ingredients, I really can't wait to see how his house evolves.

As others have said, this is one magnificent fragrance! Basically, it is a very good agarwood with the addition of leather, amber, florals and woods. None of the notes predominates and the impact is one of refined and confident masculinity. While strong, it does not overpower as do some of the other scents - ie. Amber ash-Sheikh. This is one of the crown jewels in M. Abdul Karim's line of attars.

Amazing, a powerful and intense perfume, of an extraordinary exotic beauty. I only have one sample, but when I can I will go for a full bottle of magnificent elixir. It is sweet wood with animal nuances, but not very noticeable, they are in their right measure and very well balanced, a precious fragrance.
Darkbeat - Spain
amazing, I'm using it and every time I like it more. It is a safe purchase.

At 1st Glance and being a new person to step into the house of AKAF, I thought this may b a normal perfume oil. I got to know about this brand from the YouTube channel called exotic scents. So I thought, why not give it a try. So I ordered sheikh Al Faransi which was highly praised by brother nikhil from exotic scents. As everyone says first impression is the best impression, this was my best impression of sheikh Al Faransi. It smelled so unique to my nose and highly sophisticated. With a good vibe which will last an entire day with a tiny drop applied to the pulse points. This beast last more than 12 hours and I advice to go very little on application then increase it according to your need, cz this one is pretty strong. And I should tell I’m not at all disappointed in stepping into hoUse and I’m glad I found it. I have ordered three more from AKAF and would be writing about them very soon in sha Allah. Thank you

Absolute best!

I cant remember what it reminds me of, but something sweet like candy, not quite chocolate. Something chewable and sweet
Hamid - London
This is by far one of the best Oud mukhallat I came across. It's sweet woody with some mineral elements from ambergris. It is one of the best out of that line for sure. Excellent lasting power and very nice dry down. Its very well blended indeed. Highly recommended
Vishal - NewZealand
This is a very subtle fragrance. it last about 6-7 hours on the skin . My partner loves this fragrance due to its sweet candy like notes. Personally I Wish it had more projection but overall its a great fragrance. May be it works well in hot weather. Great Work AKAF House, I am coming back for more sure!

Of the 4 samples I ordered from this house, this is the best. Woody, floral, heady and sweet, with a powerful honey note. Well blended, and it opens up gradually to reveal more and more. It's also very dark. I'd suggest a sample before committing to a full bottle, to know whether it's for you. I like that it's powerful but it doesn't project hugely. If this was made by a bigger name fragrance house, you'd expect to pay much more for such a quality composition. Absolutely well-done...just not for everyone. Definitely buy this if sweet, resinous woody fragrances are your thing though.
