That good to know! Out of curiosity, how do you reckon it's a dupe of that fragrance if you don't have the soap? I ask because I managed to get a bottle of the Najran aftershave all the way from Italy thanks to a friend. Nobody in the US sold it and the day it landed in the US (last week), Pasteur had it for sale the next day, lol. I love the scent and I asked myself if a fragrance with similar notes existed.
What about OdB; do you find it to be a dupe of an existing fragrance? Some of its notes remind me of Acqua di Parma Oud but it's not a dupe per say. I find OdB more complex and superior.
Well, it’s a bit of a long story but might be interesting for people in the US.
Officina Artigiana Milano is a brand of Rasoi Goodfellas, one of the largest distributors of wetshaving products in Europe. (They also ship to US) They have a Facebook group so there was a lot of discussion while the soap was in the making. Some people say it’s a dupe, some other that it’s more “inspired”, I cannot say. Nasomatto and Orto Parisi are high end niche Italian parfums.
OdB is very close to Tom Ford Tuscan Leather, which I tried at an airport. Well OdB not only gets super close as a fragrance but also as persistence at a small fraction of the cost of the parfums.
I hope this helps
