T02 & T04 fusion

Yet another wonderful creation by the house of Taif al Emarat. For me, T16 is somehow compromise between T02 and T04.
Oudy and animalic opening spiced with salty ambergris reminds me of T02, but here it's toned down with honey, which is really smooth and subtly sweet; not a thick, overly sweet syrup.
Then it goes to woody and fruity oud base, similar to T04 settled on clean and soft musky pillow, but in depth can still get the animalic notes tamed by this delicious honey with puff of smoke as it dries down.
I love the balance of notes in this composition, Taif al Emarat has once again proven its blending artistry here.
