Royal Blend by Abdul Samad Al Qurashi is a masterful composition of high-quality Ta'if rose and light aged oud, with a whiff of spices and a slight woody character. This is unique in the ASQ line as we get a top citrus note along with the rose and also some very dark vanilla notes from time to time, but it is not a sweet fragrance. Rather is it a gorgeous complex blend based around a rose-oud core that is a great daytime perfume, as it is bright and friendly upon application yet has high longevity due to the oud acting as a fixative, with a light musky* note lasting through the drydown.
Royal Blend is one of our favorites in ASQ's upper mid-range, as it is complex yet very approachable, very wearable in a social setting and appealing to a wide range of users. Recommended for those who are fans of deep complex fragrances but would rather avoid heavy dark ouds.
We are selling the reformulated version of this product which is currently being marketed by ASQ.
