Bacara Arabesque is the first fragrance in the Arabesque collection, which can be considered totally masculine (of course, no one forbids women to wear it). I consider it as a modernized marine fougère, continuing the ideas of two legendary men’s fragrances — Cool Water Davidoff and Aventus Creed — at the same time. It has a sharply refreshing citrus start with the green fruity shade of Aventus, a transparent aquatic floral-geranium transition to the base notes, and the cool marine fougère base of Cool Water with a predominance of Evernil and ambergris (Ambroxan).
The gray ambergris of the drydown is done in oriental style, with a clear and longlasting animal shade — the whole perfume is held in contrast of a gray ambergris animalic with a flowery (orange blossom) note and a green, fresh (Rhubofix) rhubarb note. Durability is excellent; I safely can recommend it.
