La Yuqawam Ambergris Showers For Men by Rasasi Unboxing First Impressions

155 ratings | 4344 views
In this unboxing video of La Yuqawam Ambergris Showers by Rasasi I give my first impressions on this interesting scent. It's a very unique scent from Rasasi that really displays an interesting take on arabian fragrances. Middle Eastern scents are known for the strong characters and Ambergris Showers is no Exception.

Jim Barker (2 years ago)
It is a bit different, but I get an accord/vibe reminiscent of Cartier's Declaration Essence in there. Very fresh and green from the Galbanum, but there's something... salty lurking underneath it. I think it will wear fairly well in the heat - not as aquatic/fruity as Hawas, which has its fair share of ambroxan as well.
Simply Put Scents (2 years ago)
+Jim Barker interesting..I need to check that declaration out. Thanks for watching and sharing your thoughts Jim...

+Fragrance Tattoo Thanks FT...Appreciate that...
CascadeScents (2 years ago)
Does it smell like ambergris though? I think it's cool that they are ethical about not using ambergris, but I think it's a misleading fragrance name if they aren't even trying to channel its scent. Nevertheless, you know I am hyped for this scent, and your review. =]
CascadeScents (2 years ago)
+Simply Put Scents Yeah fam, thanks for the response. Actual ambergris would be unethical AF. And yeah, the word Showers seems super-appropriate. :P
Simply Put Scents (2 years ago)
+CascadeScents I would say so...But of course being that Ambergris is banned and only a relatively small amount of indie Perfume Brands continue to use it, along with the fact that this scent isn't really beast mode as scents with real ambergris in them, I'd say this is Ambroxan...Rasasi may not have to adhere to IFRA regulations being based in the UAE but their perfumes are created in France so they may be regulated...It also doesn't come across as animalistic to me either...So i doubt there is any real Ambergris in this but it for sure mimics the effects. And to be honest with you I hope there is no real Ambergris in this...I'd not recommend it if it did regardless of how great it smells...The word showers is for sure not misleading tho...

I tried to look it up on Fragrantica, and it's not there yet. Weird. They're usually on top of their shit. How do you like the regular La Yuqawam?
John David (2 years ago)
+Simply Put Scents Well, they're usually better about big brands - not so hot on the smaller indie houses.  I have to small Homme - it seems to be all the rage.  Great video, Emitsu!
Simply Put Scents (2 years ago)
Really John? I find that Fragrantica is late on a few things...took them until Midnight In Paris was discontinued to publish a page on the EDP version...lol...but I'm a fan of homme...it is still my favorite of the La Yuqawam collection.

Cool video as always E.

+Shakeil Rogers Thanks Shakeil...
Jim R (2 years ago)
Oh, the listed notes are: Iris, Galbanum, Ambroxan and Herbaceous notes...kind of a mix between Dior Homme, Sauvage and that La Yuqawam DNA? Thoughts?
Jim R (2 years ago)
+Jim R Based on my one full-wearing, I find Ambergris Showers to be green, musky, powdery and with a healthy dose of cumin. This scent is somewhat unique, but I must admit that I have smelled something 50% similar to Ambergris Showers in one of my other Middle Eastern fragrances...just can't place it right now. I did not enjoy the opening because of a prominent cumin accord, which comes across as a bad body odor and stinks on my skin. It was not bad when I sniffed it at an arms-length (green, musky and a bit powdery) but that cumin is unsettling when I place my nose within 6-inches of my arm. What I haven't sensed is an amber/ambergris tone to this fragrance during the opening and heart. However, as it blend with my skin chemistry, it does get a bit warmer and richer as time progresses. Of course, that cumin stank was still loud and unapologetic. After about 45-minutes I was basically getting a resinous musk and the funky cumin notes had [finally] completely disappeared. This phase lasts to about the 3-hour mark. A couple hours later and the drydown is largely musky with, perhaps, a slightly resinous feel to it. To me, it basically feels like a slightly nicer version of The Body Shop White Musk for Men, which I really like. And I feel that white musk is a relaxing out-of-the-shower, sitting home watching TV or reading a book scent. However, I am not Wow'd by it. Performance is in the average range which was surprising since my other La Yuqawam fragrances are excellent performers on my skin. I got around 6-7 hours of longevity and the projection was average for the first 2-hours before transitioning to to a more subtle skin scent. Other than a mildly resinous White Musk, I didn't really detect an amber/ambergris accord in the drydown. In all fairness, I have only had one full-wearing so I update this review should my experiences change in subsequent testing. Overall, I am inclined to call this one La Yuqawam White Musk for Men...but my final verdict is still out. Regardless, I am really interested in finding-out others thoughts on this fragrance - especially if they are sensing cumin because I am hypersensitive to this note.

+Simply Put Scents It's not much of blind-buy since I generally like the Rasasi fragrances and have three daughters who often enjoy (use, borrow or covet) the fragrances I don't like (the ones that are a bit too sweet, fruity, floral, etc.) Plus, I have two nephews and a dozen twenty-thirty young men (contracted support staff) who work for me. So I have a plenty of people to give this stuff to. Okay, 30-minutes in and this one is starting to change...towards the better, which is nice.
Simply Put Scents (2 years ago)
Deep that you get cumin...I don't get that skank at all...lol...Skin chemistry is something else...Its not very spicey on my skin. Its more resinous if anything. Im shocked u took a chance though because I know ur not a fan of sweet scents...But this is an interesting sweet scent.  Its not typical. So maybe that appeals to you.
Jim R (2 years ago)
+Simply Put Scents Okay, my bottle arrived this afternoon and the fragrance has been on my skin for the past 10-minutes. My first impression is that it is green, musky, powdery and with a healthy dose of cumin. This scent is somewhat unique, but I must admit that I have smelled something 50% similar to Ambergris Showers in one of my other Middle Eastern fragrances...just can't place it right now. Okay, I'm not digging this one because a prominent cumin accord comes across as having a bad body odor stank on my skin. It's not bad when I sniff it at an arms-length (green, musky and a bit powdery) but that cumin stinks when I place my nose within 6-inches of my arm. What I haven't sensed is an amber/ambergris tone to this fragrance...at least not yet. However, as it blends into my skin (these past few minutes) it is getting a bit warmer and richer so I'll give it more time. Of course, that cumin stank isn't going away. Anyway, this is just my initial impression.
Jim R (2 years ago)
Cool...can't wait for the full review. Regardless, I noticed it was being sold by BeautySpin so I just had to order a bottle (you know me). Anyway, I can't wait to put my mitts on this one next week. I've probably smelled 4-5 thousand fragrance the past 3-years so it should be interesting to see if Ambergris Showers reminds me of something I've smelled already. I'm amazed how I keep finding fragrances that smell unique to me like Dame Dark Horse and even designer's such as Dior Sauvage. Some folks say that it reminds them of Aventus and/or Bleu de Chanel...but it's an original fragrances IMO. Later...
Jim R (2 years ago)
"Waiting all night to do what I'm gonna do." Been there - done that! But dammit man...that's far more information than I wanted to know! LOL! Seriously, I absolutely love this house...some don't, and a lot of their fragrances don't Wow!, but damn they have some really nice one - and very reasonably priced. I had no idea this one was out there. I have Pour Homme and Tobacco Blaze (love 'em) so I'm sure to take a look at this one. Anyway, excellent review...although I couldn't tell whether you morphed into a chubby middle-aged white women, Donald Duck or Gollum of The Hobbit fame. Perhaps some of all three. LOL! I am really looking forward to your upcoming review. Here are the Rasasi fragrances I have in my scent armory: (with my quick take on 'em) Al Wisam Day - perhaps the best Silver Mountain Water clone out there Attar Al Mohobba Man - have yet to open the box (been almost a year)...soon, I hope Daarej for Men - this one is a cumin stinker and caused a slight skin rash...dislike Faqat Lil Rijal - very nice fragrance, beastly performance, interesting presentation and inexpensive Jaish - soft spicy/woody...reminds me of cedar and plywood...but I like it Khaltat Al Oudh - similar to Serge Lutens Santal Majuscule, but better La Yuqawam Pour Homme - awesome Tuscan Leather clone...not as beastly, but I prefer this one La Yuqawam Tobacco Blaze - Oud/Leather/Violet...that smells like campfire tobacco. Quirky, but well-done. Maa Arwaak for Him - I have yet to open the box...had it almost a year. Oudh Al Misk - some say it's similar to Mancera Cedrat Boise...I disagree, but it's nice. Rasasi Tasmeem - Jeremy Fragrance hyped this one...but it's a "Meh" for me. It's okay, nothing special IMO.

Hmmm...Ambergris Showers (the raining down of Whale spunk) actually sounds a lot worse. LOL!

+Jim R LMAO...Hilarious Jim...
Jim R (2 years ago)
+Jim R To be honest, I'm just glad Rasasi didn't name this one Golden Showers, for obvious reasons. Sometimes things get lost in the translation...if you know what I mean. LOL!

mythrol (2 years ago)
This was on point man. People were just asking about this one and I wasn't even aware people in the states could pick it up yet. Thanks.
Simply Put Scents (2 years ago)
+mythrol Thanks...Yeah I noticed that too on Fragrantica...I was so happy to catch it early before the rush...But i think this will be very polarizing...There will be a lot of guys who will feel like they won't be able to pull this off and will be disappointed...I hope that with the influx of metrosexual scents in the frag game now men are prepared for this and it doesn't get mass hate...but it could go one way or the other...

Simply Put Scents (2 years ago)
Im sorry but I have no experience with that frag...while I've smelled a lot of Niche/Independent scents and really do appreciate them for the most part I'm still entrenched in my Designers and Middle Eastern brand phase...I do believe at some point I will delve a lot more seriously into it as that tends to be the natural progression for us frag heads so we'll see...Thanks for watching

great video you make me want to smell this scent myself, its great to see some humor in your videos cool, quirky, and serious all in one look forward to more reviews, impressions, and videos from you. great work !!! BTW is this a macho masculine scents??
Simply Put Scents (2 years ago)
+eric miller Thank A lot Eric...Means a lot...and By no means is this scent macho...This will be very difficult for a lot of western guys to appreciate. It has a perfumed quality about it. But it also reminds me of fragrance oils the guys in NYC sell on tables with sheets over them...lol...It straddles being masculine and feminine on a very thin line...lol
tuxi187 (2 years ago)
Does it smell like any creed
Simply Put Scents (2 years ago)
+tuxi187 I haven't smelled anything like it to be honest...If it is a clone its a clone of something I never smelled yet.
