Not really. It's not a horrible fragrance, but it's not very good either. Arabian Nights is without a doubt a powerhouse (like most Bogart fragrances), but it uses a combination of notes that I don't really like.
First of all, "Arabian Nights" doesn't seem like a fitting name. I smell no oud in this (not that that's any great loss), and the fragrance lacks any exotic vibe that might justify the name. It smells cheap and purely synthetic, and not in a good way. Arabian Nights is both sweet and animalic, a combination I typically don't like. It smells like grape jelly beans mixed with a note that smells like a cross between halitosis and an unwiped ass crack. It sounds weird, and it is. It's even nauseating at times, particularly in the opening, with its grape hairspray scent. Ultimately, the combination becomes tolerable, particularly in the drydown, where the sweet and skanky seem to co-exist fairly well and the chemical smell is tolerable.
Arabian Nights is not a fragrance I expect to wear very often, mainly due to its sweet, chemical smell. However, I love its audacity. This is a loud, brash scent, similar to One Man Show Gold Edition. You will not find many, if any, other men wearing this bomb. If this were in mainstream department stores, I would expect most guys to recoil upon first sniff. I did.
Sometimes I like to wear a nutzo fragrance just for its brash character. Arabian Nights is for those times.
MY RATING: 6/10
