Brand Parfums de Marly
Known as one of the gentlest and most noble of Arabian horses, the Shagya traces its lineage back to 19th century Austro-Hungary. To honor the cross-cultural heritage of this majestic creature, Parfums de Marly has created a scent that also transcends the Mediterranean, giving us a rich oud scent that masterfully incorporates bright citrus and soft woods for a delightfully refined, quietly commanding fragrance designed for men but perfect for all.
Shagya opens with fresh, tart lime and juicy bergamot, before the rich, smooth oud- warm, soft and masterfully restrained- develops. Cedarwood adds to the relaxed nature of the scent, while a lovely vetiver- neither sharp nor overly earthy- lends spice and gentle energy. The perfect antidote to overwhelming oud scents everywhere, Shagya, like the horse whose name it bears, proves that there's ample glory in gentle sophistication.

I was under the impression this was for a man. The smell is definitely feminine; it was not unpleasant.
