Is it really just a dupe?
Wear just a sweater that still smells like burdèl, it had me 3 days ago sprayed on the wrist to compare as so often, 2 or 3 düfte or test :) And the perfume is still very clearly perceptible on the sweater. Do that every now and then. With all possible fragrances and samples I have.

But how does Burdèl smell?

Opening.

Shortly after spraying, it smells as wonderful as hardly anything else. Bergamot, fresh spices something cool, slightly sweet and in the background these woody notes. It reminds one already strongly of "Oud Stars - Alexandria II (Perfume) | XerJoff" the oud remains woody, dry, clean and never goes in a stale or dirty direction. Thus, even oud newcomers will enjoy this fragrance. One notices immediately the high concentration of the perfume, it remains an oily film on the skin.

The opening is for me the most beautiful part.

A smooth 10.

The rest of the story.

The freshness and fruitiness slowly goes into the background and to the appearance come more and more the woody and spicy notes. However, one has Burdèl always this fresh bergamot in the duft course, at least at me. And exactly this also distinguishes it from "Oud Stars - Alexandria II (perfume) | XerJoff"
Together with vanilla comes a slight sweetness to it, but wonderfully done. Very elegant, yet sexy. Never penetrating or too much of a good thing, although the performance is really convincing. The delicious lemon cake already hits it, as many describe it.

This perfume is almost perfectly balanced.

A 9

Drydown

In the drydown it changes only marginally. He remains woody, slightly fruity, sweet and above all sexy. He radiates something that I find very attractive and erotic. Especially in drydown.
You always smell your arm, so at least I feel that way :) it could be the cardamom with vanilla and the oud. That makes it so delicious.

Conclusion.

Burdèl reminds one really clearly of "Oud Stars - Alexandria II (perfume) | XerJoff"
(Provided of course you know the XerJoff) :D

However, you wear both simultaneously, so you also recognize the differences better.
For me, it is more masculine, fruity and fresh, thereby it also has that certain extra that I was missing with AlexII.
It is not a dupe, rather a new interpretation or further development. I do not mind the similarity, am of course more than satisfied with it, as you could see from my review :)

The XerJoff is a wonderful perfume. And I love the fragrance. Nevertheless, TT with Burdel has managed to still improve an almost perfect fragrance. Since I persöhnlich exactly that was missing with Alex.

If you own Alex you need now but not run to buy Burdel. You have with Alex a unisex classic, which will always be special.
People who did not like AlexII, Burdel will also not like. For this they are too similar.

The bottle is beautiful, the sprüher average, the presentation excellent.
The price on offer unbeatable. (Please do not pay 390€ for it)

Performance well above average.
Almost all year wearable, in too warm temperatures I would recommend something else.

Unisex - masculine.
Age from 25 - XX
Disco, bar, restaurant or whatever. Almost always wearable.

For sports or shopping in the supermarket, it is too fine and special, take for it rather something lighter and cheaper :)

It will probably never become as popular as "Oud Stars - Alexandria II (Perfume) | XerJoff" but those who were able to discover it, will certainly not regret it :)

Thanks for reading

A fantastic fragrance with a very clumsy name...
As a preface, I would like to go straight to the headline here. The word Burdel unfortunately means brothel in Polish. The perfume has an accent on the E, but nevertheless I find the name awkwardly chosen and may certainly have led to strange looks at some people.

Burdèl was a blind buy for me, because there are simply no bottlings of Burdèl in the Souk and also otherwise it is truly difficult to find a bottling or sample of Burdèl. The packaging is Anniversary Collection usual very pompous designed, whether that is necessary I doubt, especially since my packaging was already a little flaked off the writing. This huge packaging leads to a completely different problem for me. Slowly I just do not know where to go with all these large Tiziana Terenzi packaging.

Now I have bored you but long enough and it is now finally time to talk about the fragrance. Burdèl is really extraordinary. Everyone knows the normal bergamot or citrus top notes, which we have all probably smelled countless times. Burdèl combines the bergamot note with a concentrated load of spices. I particularly like the Syrian cumin combined with the cardamom here. The top note is absolutely unique and perfectly combines fresh with spices. As it progresses, the spices increasingly gain the upper hand. However, after about 1 hour, a gentle oud note is added, which also brings some sweetness through amber and vanilla. This combination makes Burdèl also suitable for people who do not like oud. The heart notes, on the other hand, I can't really make out. Burdèl accomplishes rather a jump from the top note to base note.

The performance is really very good I could Burdèl even after more than 14 hours still perceive and the silage remains for 7-8 hours at an arm's length perceptible.

Burdèl Is for me definitely wearable even at higher temperatures, thereby Burdèl fits perfectly in all seasons and never goes on the nerves, except perhaps at temperatures above 25 degrees.

Positive surprise 2021
With Terenzis I came in the past only rarely in contact. Really extensively I could test so far only Chimaera , "Kirkè | Tiziana Terenzi" , Laudano Nero and Lillipur , which are all very nice scents. Allerding they have never been able to animate me to a permanent use, which ensured that they increasingly gathered dust in the corners of my bathroom cabinet and then ended up in the souk.

So it's all the more pleasing that another Terenzi has now found its way into my collection, via blind purchase (sometimes I'm just weak) and this time I have a feeling it's going to stay.

So, now to the essentials.
Burdèl starts with a concentrated charge of citrusy creaminess, courtesy of the combination of lime and cardamom. The top note works so well that it would have been independent enough as a fragrance. However, Burdèl has even more in store, because after just a few minutes the fragrance changes almost completely. The wonderful top note moves into the background and makes room for a creamy woody base, which is to dominate the further course. Oud and sandalwood are beautifully showcased here. No note pokes me in any way sour or seems out of place.

Here you could note for the first time the analogy to "Oud Stars - Alexandria II (perfume) | XerJoff", because it is clearly present.

"Oud Stars - Alexandria II (Perfume) | XerJoff" starts virtually in the heart note. A small course is to be perceived and the "angularity" disappears somewhat.

Burdèl makes practically a complete about-face from the citrusy into the woody.

Once that happens, there is little difference between the two scents.
Of course, you can still notice small differences, especially since a touch of the initial freshness in Burdèl remains and never reaches the depth of "Oud Stars - Alexandria II (perfume) | XerJoff". However, that doesn't hurt this type of composition at all. Rather, I find it to be a little less bulky and more wearable.

The durability of Burdèl is definitely solid. In the morning sprayed on I hear him still (18:00) clearly on the back of my hand.

In conclusion, this fragrance will probably be an active enrichment of my collection. For me, he closes the gap between an eccentric composition and the compatibility in everyday life. Thus, he gives me a reason to look forward to the coming cold days, when it is again time to unpack the woody guns.

Budél - i love it!
Much read and then tested at the end itself!
I agree with all the comments here, but especially the positive ones.
- Alexandria 2 Dupe? No
- A completely newfound fragrance? No
For me, rather a better, fresher and summerier interpretation of Alexandria 2.
It's 7:30 I'm just sitting at my desk, drinking coffee and trying to find a suitable description to the fragrance and keep coming back to Alexandria 2, because just this permanently hangs in my nose.
Shortly smelled on the wrist and noticed: it is not only this fragrance, there is much more behind.
Body close I perceive much much more than just the oriental-spicy and woody notes.
It is fresh, slightly minty, just fabulous!

Perfection of perfection
Alex II is for many yes as the almost perfect fragrance. With he was honestly a little too "old" to wear in.
This is exactly where the Burdèl starts. In the opening you get a beautiful citrus note, while you get in the background already clearly an Alexandrian breeze blown around the nose.
The first impression inspires me directly.
Gradually, the citrus withdraws and the woody spicy, slightly sweetened notes come more and more to the fore.
Overall, however, it always remains somewhat fresher and lighter than the Alexandria II. Exactly this fact makes him more portable and (so I call it now times) "younger" for me.
An insanely exciting, special and attractive fragrance.
To say it with FlavioAurel words "summer over Alexandria".

Would not stand behind the Burdèl Tiziana Terenzi, the fragrance would probably be predominantly called a dupe.
So we leave it benevolently with a tribute to perfection.

Akin to Alexandria II, but in my opinion better, while cheaper! A stunning opening, gets a bit challenging during drydown (sweaty cumin).

Alex II with a bit of lemon in the opening - otherwise little to no difference. A little lighter in the air, so also something for spring
