A couple of months ago I was reading about a very rare and interesting scent, created by Shaik and named Chic Shaik. Due to its very selective distribution I imagined I will never have an opportunity to sniff it, however, lucky for me, this Saturday the dream became reality and I enjoyed the aroma of Chic Shaik No. 70.
Shaik is a fashion house, specialized in luxury goods and established in Bahrein in 2007. Having the motto “Inspired legend… Opulence and style… Being exceptional is you!” the house extended into perfumery as well, with a line presented in 2007 and named Opulent Blue, which included a fragrant pair: Opulent Shaik No. 33 for women and Opulent Shaik No. 77 for men.
Chic Shaik No. 70 is a pure oriental woody masculine fragrance, introduced in 2008 and strongly related to the oriental world. In case you ever considered having an oriental aroma in your perfume collection, this is it, because Chic Shaik No. 70 represents the quintessence of an oriental fragrance for men. Besides its unusual lasting power (approximately 14 hours) this fragrance wraps around you like an Arabic tale, telling the story of a living enjoyed without limitation, like a Middle East prince.
Chic Shaik No. 70 top notes are bergamot, orange, lemon and clary sage; its heart is Lily-of-the-Valley and jasmine; and its base is vetiver, patchouli, sandalwood, cedarwood and musk. Apart from the mid development, which may seem a little too sweet for some men (not my case though!), this fragrance develops extremely pleasant on the skin, like a combination that contains the traits original and malicious. The bottle that holds Chic Shaik No. 70 exhibits an elegant masculine shape and is topped by a silver stopper adorned with a jewel; the packaging box has the typical Arabic look and comes with a black ribbon.
