With "Habdan" from the "Arabian breed" Collection, the fragrance house Parfums de Marly presents another gem of their art of perfume, which is also dedicated to the noble race of Arabian horses.
One of the five founding families of Arabian horses is named Habdan. These noble steeds can be regarded as the smaller version of the Hamdani line - with an equally strong and muscular stature and a very gentle soul.
From the beginning, "Habdan" clearly shows its oriental character as beautiful frankincense rises up, refined with an almost fruity saffron. Like a still life, the heart paints a picture of freshly picked apples, precious woods and roses lying together which are carried by warm ambergris notes, delicious caramel and balsamic myrrh.
"Habdan" by Parfums de Marly shimmers in its entire splendor with precious oriental spices and beguiling resins. Sweet notes also show the gentle and balanced nature of the Habdan family. "Habdan" suffuses a special strength that draws from a deep spirit and great wisdom.
Top Note: Saffron, Frankincense
Heart Note: Apple, Woods, Rose
Base Note: Ambergris, Caramel, Myrrh
Parfums de Marly - Oajan
"Oajan" by Parfums de Marly is the fourth fragrance in the Arabian Breed Collection and is dedicated to one of the five lineages of Arabian thoroughbreds. In earlier times these noble horses were used as warhorses and nowadays they benefit from their excellent athletic virtues as highly-prized race horses.
In the opening of "Oajan" sharp, sparkling cinnamon competes with tangy honey and light, fruity osmanthus notes. Like a harmonic braid, the heart notes are intertwined: Balsamic benzoin, warm-spicy labdanum, ambergris and herb-sweet, almost plum-like davana notes in complete harmony. The base supports this wonderful scented character by contributing patchouly and soft musk. With vanilla and tonka bean the sweet temptations are once again envisaged and with "Oajan" epicureans are reminded of Oriental delicacies such as halva, and also almonds, marzipan and amaretto.
Arabian thoroughbreds are the kings amongst horses and "Oajan" pays homage to the most delectable or Oriental desserts, nobly interpreted, full of love and devotion.
Top Note: Cinnamon, Honey, Osmanthus
Heart Note: Benzoin, Labdanum (Rockrose), Ambergris, Davana
