Emir (Repost)


Emir (Dana 1936) is classified as an oriental fragrance.  It starts with a rich, warm aldehydic burst of unearthly powdery citrus, specifically citronella.  And, as it moves into an intense and vibrant floral heart it has an enormous but not overpowering presence.  Matter of fact, at times it is a bit like a good bottle of vintage Emeraude – balsamic but not truly coarse.  Sensual but not crass…  Into the drydown, this woody, spicy, musky and rare beauty is reminiscent of the camphor headiness in vintage Youth Dew but with a distinct blue allure…
