A tangy sweet opening note of hibiscus gives the rose in this fragrance a tropical bent, while the cassis leaf makes it feel fruity, providing an all-together unique experience for any seasoned rose fragrance lover. Green, spicy and sharp with surprising leather notes, I can see why this fragrance is polarizing for those expecting a straight forward tropical rose fragrance. This is layered and many-faceted. Given time to bloom, Hibiscus Mahajad settles into something luscious, sensually musky, and gorgeously spiced. It might just take the right kind of personality to wear something so bold.
