Ganymede + Mango = Love
Masa is a perfume that is hardly being talked about at the moment.
Khamrah and co. tend to get the big hype.
But I think Masa is actually one of the best fragrances from Lattafa.
It's not just the bottle that reminds me of Nische.
What's in the bottle definitely smells like niche too.
Because this is a(n) Ganymede alternative/dupe with a twist.
Because instead of mandarin, Lattafa uses mango here.
And the mango note is quite prominent.
Is it a playful mango reminiscent of a clubbing fragrance? No!

I notice the mango right from the start.
It's a sweet mango, but still very masculine, serious and a note that seems very mature.
There is also a lot of saffron, which is totally reminiscent of the saffron from Ganymede.
And a note that has already disturbed many in Ganymede, curry!
Or is it turmeric?
It's probably one of the two.
It gives the fragrance a certain pleasant spiciness & a very subtle sharpness.
The longer I wore the fragrance, the more it reminded me of Ganymede, with mango added.
That sounds kind of strange, but I find it much more pleasant than the original precisely because of the mango.
Fortunately, in the DD, the curry/turmeric recedes more and more into the background, allowing the saffron, ginger and mango to take center stage.

Fresh, slightly creamy, spicy and pleasantly sweet at the end.
A fragrance that you always catch yourself smelling on your wrist.

Just like Ganymede, it is not a fragrance that is 100% safe to buy blind.
You have to like Ganymede or Bois Impérial.
But it is a fragrance for a somewhat more mature, refined gentleman, which is the best way to describe it.

I can't complain about the performance.
Whenever I wore it, it never let me down.
It does its thing well, it's there, it radiates well without being too strong.
Above average but not a beast either, something in between.

Just like Ganymede, Masa is also unisex.
I find it far too masculine for a woman.
But of course there are also women who celebrate this and like to wear it.
Nevertheless, as a small warning, the fragrance is definitely quite masculine!
On the whole, a very nice fragrance.
I used to own the Bois Impérial which is very reminiscent of Ganymede.
I then sold it because I didn't appreciate this fragrance DNA at the time.
I regretted it in the end and wanted to buy a new bottle.
After I discovered the Masa, I no longer need the Bois Impérial either.
I think the Masa is better, this mango note, which is not found in either Ganymede or Bois Impérial, is simply amazing.
And that's why I definitely recommend buying it!

Same cosmos, different planets
It has already been mentioned what the Masa is about, my written review should serve a detailing.

Both are in the same cosmos, both the Ganymede and the Masa
And now comes the but ...
They are such extremely different fragrances. The mango note makes a huge difference, while its role model works with citrus and is fresh at the beginning, it starts with a musty / fermented mango note right from the start. Not slightly green / sour no, extremely dark / slowly brown so that you could soon drink it :))

For me, the Ganymede is much more transparent and balanced, has plenty of horsepower but doesn't seem overpowering. His Arabian friend, on the other hand, is extremely potent and shows teeth with corners and edges. The part has such a strong chemical structure that I got a funny taste in my mouth from smelling it.

To put an end to the whole thing and have an objective conclusion. Don't be put off, it's definitely worth a test! From the cool packaging to the bottle, fragrance quality simply top !!!

AN ADDICTIVE MASTERPIECE
Let me start by saying that Lattafa has improved a lot over the years. The quality of their new pride series(Masa and Vintage radio in particular) are unreal, and the oil concentration is crazy. If you see this fragrance going for $100, It's still VERY much okay to get it.

Masa means diamond in Arabic. And it is a befitting name for a fragrance that copies Ganymede. I have sampled it just once—last month—& damn... Just damn. To describe the smell is actually difficult, just like Masa. Masa is a twist. Mango plays an important role here. You might miss it if you don't pay attention. It's beautifully blended.

The opening has fruits, mixed with suede. Sometimes I catch the citrus, other times I smell the mango(especially when smelling from the atomizer). It's a very seductive opening that leads to a salty, saffronic and spicy base. That dry down will somehow remind you of the saffron from BR540. Very familiar, yet way different.

Tbh, something in the fragrance smells otherworldly. Why I say that is cos of how this at times depicts the smell of wet white rocks. Each time you smell this, you're reminded of something abstract, but can't wrap your head on what it actually is. Maybe I'll just leave it at the name. It was named Diamond for a reason, yeah? Maybe Diamond should've smelt this way!

The accords I get from Lattafa Masa includes:
Shredded/magazine paper vibes, wet white rock, saffron and suede, fruits, Tuscan leather feels, a shoe boutique, etc.

Longevity is EXTRATERRESTRIAL. 15hrs+ on my skin with 2 sprays. The sprayer spritz in short bursts, which I suppose was done on purpose.
Projection is great too. It's very easy to go nose-blind to this one, but trust me, it's still present. It's totally unisex, but leans more masculine. Also perfect for all weather, imo.

Final rating: 9.8/10!

I just can't wait for the coming Lattafa releases. I just hope they keep putting out this type of amazing quality for less. I also wish they could focus a little more on daring fragrance from the likes of Zoologist and Imaginary authors.

Unisex version of Ganymede
Intoxicating and Addictive! It opens up with a blast of lemons and aquatic notes, then leans towards spiciness and omg, the dry down? Delicious! This is Ganymede blended into a perfectly unisex experience. Mineral elements mixed with suede and mango for some deliciousness. Damn! This is so good; so rich; so irresistible. I got the 20ml bottle and I doubt I’ll run through my bottle in the next year because it’s quite potent and I love it!!!

I don't know the "inspiration" called Ganymede - but to me the scent smells primarily of bitter, dark mango paired with a little mineral water. You can do it, it's not groundbreaking, but it's pretty unique and has quality. But I think you have to like it and it's not a compliment magnet either.
Shelf life is good, sillage is fine. If you want something fruity and bitter, this is the one for you. The sweetness is very mild after a short time in my opinion. See the fragrance in spring, probably too "dark" for summer

This is to Ganymede as Khamrah is to Angels share. It's more of a twist. Mango, saffron and suede are amped up here. Performance is unreal!!
