Questions and Answers
Q: How does Rayef Bakhoor Al Wedad smell?
A: Rayef Bakhoor Al Wedad opens with fresh fruit, featuring pineapple, bergamot and plum. It then melts into the heart, which is a bouquet of floral notes, including gardenia. But it also has saffron, to add an edge to the fragrance that keeps it grounded. Then, as it moves into the base, it takes on a new identity with vanilla coming on strong before mellowing into the comfortable notes of patchouli and leather. It also adds in cedar for more warmth that helps avoid this becoming too light, sweet or bright.
Q: Where do you apply Rayef Bakhoor Al Wedad?
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?
