Xerjoff Golden Dallah is a unisex amber spicy fragrance that is part of Xerjoff's Coffee Break Collection. Golden Dallah is the name for a traditional Arabic coffee pot used to brew coffee, usually for holidays like Eid. This is a tribute to those coffee traditions.
The opening of the fragrance is a little bitter and spicy, much like Arabic coffee. Golden Dallah features notes of coffee absolute, rose absolute, incense, Cambodian oud, amber, hazelnut, cocoa and tonka hyper essence. It is an eau de parfum, edp.
Fragrantica - "Spicy, foodie, coffee gourmand. Like sitting down in a posh cafe with a turkish coffee and one of those fancy wafer sweets with the hazelnut filling. Nice gourmand, a little salty, just enough cardamom to not be overwhelming. I'd love to stick a raspberry note in there for added tart jammyness - to take that - almost - overly sweet edge off. Spicy and leans masculine on the drydown."
Fragrantica - "An exotic, deep, resinous, ambery, woody, spicy, sweet, grown the hell up fragrance that's a PERFECT cool weather scent for both my man and I. Xerjoff is hit and miss for me... but this is really, really nice. It projects and it does smell a little a rich winter vacation. NOT BLIND BUY safe so please get yourself a sample like I did."
Fragrantica - "Golden Dallah smells like nothing I expected before. At first, I was kinda unsure if I like it or not, but after a few more tries, I can say that it is an excellent fragrance. It is hard for me to love this type of fragrance (especially with how that incense is dominating the scent of this fragrance), but Golden Dallah is beautiful to me. I think aside from the spices, incense, cacao, smokiness, and some nuttiness + sweetness, I also get a dark, dried tobacco accord here. I do smell some kind of "exotic spices" here, because I can sense a vibe of what smells like spices from Indian or other Asian cuisines (in a good way)."
Fragrantica - "Golden Dallah is currently my favourite perfume, it seems to strike the perfect balance of smokiness, spiciness, sweetness, nuttyness and a subtle hint of coffee. There appeared to be a quick blast of cardamom in the opening too, however this quickly fades away leaving a rich warm, smoky, sweet concoction of spices hazel nuts, cocoa and tonka. The coffee note sits in the background and aids the other elements of this incredibly pleasant fragrance."
Fragrantica - "o me it’s a resembles of the Arabic coffee in the Majlis ”, Arabic coffee surrounded by the Majlis atmosphere" which with oud, rose and the dessert " Halwa" that usually been taking after the coffee for sweeting the palat and sometimes dates after sipping the spiced bitter coffee, this is not a coffee scent but also more than coffee as I mentioned earlier it can be a smell of the traditional Majlis where they recive the guests and a kind of hospitality guests scented by Oud, rose and the coffee pot should be a basic with Halwa or dates, it’s all together in this scent not only coffee, a type of preparing coffee and also it’s changed from place to place or tribe to tribe and I had the privilege to experience this thing and this atmosphere, It’s really reminded me of that Majlis scent atmosphere but a bit different , the perfumer I think captured the common type of this scent, beautiful. Maybe the name Majlis or coffee in the Majlis could fit more."
Basenotes - "From the gorgeous bottle to the exotic potion within, Xerjoff's "Coffee Break: Golden Dallah" - a spicy oriental wonder - is quite a fragrant experience! Golden Dallah is a reference to a fancy, metallic dispenser from which coffee can be poured, utilized in Middle East countries. This is a medium strength EdP with definite cocoa, hazelnut, tonka, incense and amber notes present, creating a yummy, smoky aura. There is a just-discernible touch of rose around the edges, and a fairly clean woody oud in the heart. Great performance and a memorable scent!"
