Questions and Answers
Q: How does Lattafa Qaaed Al Shabaab smell?
It's like hitting the open road on your Harley, all kitted up in your favorite leathers, and enjoying a ride through the forested Rocky Mountains. Leather is the most prominent note here, with a bit of sweet warmth joining in from the amber and a touch of smokey woods from the cedar. The effect is strongly masculine and dark. This cologne makes a bold statement and is not for the faint of heart.
Q: Where do you apply Qaaed Al Shabaab?
A: To increase the longevity of the fragrance, spray onto your major pulse points such as behind your ears, at the base of your neck, on the wrists, behind the knees and in the inner elbows.
Q: What is the fragrance concentration?
Lattafa Qaaed Al Shabaab is an Eau De Parfum with a concentration between 15 and 20%. This means it is long-lasting and will have a fairly generous sillage. If you wish to wear it to work or in a crowded space, begin by applying more lightly until you reach the desired effect. A good method for lighter application is to spray the cologne into the air and then walk into the cloud of scent.
Q: Is Qaaed Al Shabaab for him or her?
This cologne is marketed to men and has a fairly traditional men's profile. Heavy leathers tend to be strongly masculine. However, women enjoy amber and leather fragrances as well and anyone can wear this cologne.
Q: Does Qaaed Al Shabaab last long?
Qaaed Al Shabaab is an EDP with terrific longevity. Wearers report significant scent for as long as 10 hours. It can remain as a skin scent even longer. Your results will depend upon your body chemistry, the weather, the environment and the manner in which you apply the cologne.
Q: What fragrances smell similar?
Lattafa Qaaed Al Shabaab has almost the same notes as Cuir Intense Guerlain. Other ambery leathers that are similar include Black incense Malaki from Chopard and Oud de Carthage from Boucheron.
Q: What season should I wear Lattafa Qaaed Al Shabaab?
Wear this cologne in the fall and winter. Leather, oud and amber notes are heavy and rich. They almost demand that you curl up by a warm fire with your significant other and drink a hot toddy or two. It's also ideal for wearing for outdoor sports in the bracing cold, such as skiing or hunting.
