Iskandar-Summer 2018


Recommended Posts


Iskandar is a Lebanese version of Alexander which means defender of mankind, and for those who crave a commanding presence in all situations, we’ve created a unisex summery spin on the bold mood of resinous scents, with a lighter version suitable for seasonal wear, day or night. A selection of blond resin notes - white patchouli, labdanum, frankincense and storax - interwoven with fascinating accents of wormwood, gardenia and Karu Karunde on a bed of green musk and just a pinch of powdered sugar.

This is really interesting to me, with a definite unisex vibe in that I was thinking, "Hmm I might actually wear this!"


It has a freshness while at the same time a dense undercurrent of the resins which give off that masculine aura.  But to me this is one of those "well-dressed" scents that you would wear when you want to be polished and sophisticated.  And it does have more of a lightweight feel for warm weather.  Definitely great for work but I could see wearing this to social events, on dates, weekend getaways, that kind of thing - especially when you want something you know smells great but isn't too heavy or "loud."

I just saw this scent mentioned in another thread and was hoping to see more reviews of it.  I appreciate Luna's review!  Is there anyone else who's tried this?  It sounds very interesting to me!
