Phi is a luxurious scent, inspired by a natural extract of roses produced in Afghanistan's rose region, Nangarhar. This rose oil is extremely rare and of highest quality. Inspired by these roses, growing in a dry and rough land, Phi is a rare gem, complementing contrasting lines, rich in natural raw materials that add depth and authenticity. Due to the limited amount of the rose oil, Une Rose de Kandahar is not guaranteed to be available all the time.
The scent starts with a rich fruity line of apricot. An all natural apricot extract with its surprising richness enchants and blends into a stretch of cinnamon and hints of bitter almond, softened by bergamot essential oil. These spices lead over to voluptuous roses in the fragrance heart: Extremely rare rose essential oil with its unique scent of spices, plums and flower petals blends into rose absolute from Bulgaria and hints of Bourbon geranium. The rose petals melt on the skin into a dark tobacco fond, built around an amazing absolute of dried tobacco leaves. The animalic, leathery and woody tobacco opens the ground for a generously dosed layer of patchouli in the base of Phi. Here, woody and gourmand notes melt into hints of animalic lines. Vetiver, vanilla and tonka add richness and brilliance. A generous dose of exclusive musk and ambergris round the body of the fragrance and encircle the roses.
Apricot, cinnamon, almond, bergamot, Bulgarian rose absolute, rose from Kandahar, bourbon geranium, tobacco leaf, patchouli, vetiver, vanilla, tonka bean, musk and ambergris.
With something typical of andy tauer, but with a touch of a rose that I never smelled.
So glad I chose Scent Split
It’s an unique sweet rose fragrance. I normally don’t like rose perfumes because they’re always too feminine but I love Phi Une Rose de Kandahar. It’s so unisex and high quality. It’s not loud and aggressive. Subtle but long lasting. It smells so niche, not the common rose fragrance you smell out there. I love Andy Tauer creations.
At first, in addition to flowers, it also had an animal scent. Gradually animals become modest. Dusty roses. The sweet and heavy flavor of the Middle East is vanilla. However, it is well-balanced and does not cause heartburn. I also remember Grossmith, but it is not so serious. I loved this smell and spent a few hours feeling enchanted.
