RBX 59 is a fascinating perfume, which is neither too Eastern nor too Western. A union of woody smells and flowers softened by a musky touch. Looking forward without forgetting where you are coming from. Building without ever denying who one is. RBX 59 is a tribute from where our perfumer is from, and more specifically to the city of Roubaix, of which he is particularly fond.
RBX 59 is suitable for ladies and gentlemen. RBX means Roubaix and 59 is the department number of “Nord” where our perfumer Anthony Abdul Karim is from.
Flowers From Himalaya, Sweet Woody Notes
Patchouli, Creamy Vanilla, Oriental Amber, Indian Sandalwood
Indonesian Oud, Musk
Bought this beautiful scent with Oud Sumatra. Felt opening was similar to Hind and middle from Musk Bushi Sensei but then it turns into a cooling musky sweet scent. Beautiful structured fragrance and must have in your collection."
Un parfum classe qui se distingue
Le meilleur de la maison à mon avis ,masculin et de grand caractère ,difficile de le décrire mais en un ou 2 mots je dirais trop classe 👍"
Girls must have
Don't be afraid to buy this attar, it's very feminine even for western world. Feel all the aromas listed. Summer evening choice - flowery rich with wood and amber but I feel cooling effect in my nose. Don't miss it. I didn't know that once attar is finish (it happens fast with Antony) you can't find it elsewhere."
An exquisite blend
This is my very first real "attar" - aside from the various perfume oils that I have tried in the past here in the states - and I can immediately sense the quality of this attar is leagues above what I have experienced in the past. I am currently in the floral, creamy-amber phase and it's just delightful. Service and delivery excellent. Sure to be my first of many orders. Cheers!"
Lot of compliments for this from my colleagues. Complex for me to describe, Sandalwood for sure, Creamy, Sillage is best mode.
Don't miss this one guys. Thank you AKAF."
This one needs time on the skin to shine. On first application, I was disappointed. It's obviously a quality fragrance, but this sort of sweet, French-style perfume just isn't my preference. You have flowers, vanilla, and amber, and all of them are sweet notes that can dominate a fragrance. But if you give it time, the herbs and woody notes mix in, giving it balance. I agree with the other reviews -- this is unabashedly old-fashioned. This is what men's fragrances were generations ago, and you just don't see it anymore. It's the sort of thing that made our grandmothers weak in the knees."
This is a wonderful surprise: a classic perfume in the French tradition. This is the sort of scent that one expected from the great Parisian houses sixty years ago. Unfortunately -
for a number of reasons - this style of perfumery has been degraded. Thank you, Abdul Karim, for giving us a taste of a
nearly lost art. Beautiful work!"
This one is very friendly and well within the familiar range of Western noses - Makes me think of the alpines and collecting medicinal plants in the mountains - Not quite the projection and longevity of some of the "nuclear concoctions" of this house - Something of real individual character - And as usual really good value-for-money - Highly recommended"
