Here's what other people are saying about Taklamakan...
Lighter than expected from that ingredient list but with longevity that makes it a daylong commitment, this begins as a headachey vanilla-caramel that, though well-done, was far too gourmand for me. I like the dry benzoin and patchouli notes, which eventually open up an idea of sky and hot, hot winds (along with a nifty salt note that is the opposite of marine) thanks to strategic cedar and orris deployments. Drydown is a joy, but that first hypersweet had me wondering whether I’d made a scrubber-level mistake.

The master of the Exotic Oriental Fragrance Stephane Humbert Lucas presents us this benzoin based perfume which is enhanced with Bergamot, rose (prominent), patchouli coeur, black vanilla, tonka absolute, birch, cade, gaiac, cedar, myrrh, orris, tolu balsam, labdanum, ambreine, amber gris, sandalwood, and musk. In spite of so many elements, the end product is one of his lightest and most evocative creations that has a beautiful understated yet luxurious understated elegance about it. The perfume conjures visions of the spice laden caravans slowly crossing the Mongolian desert after which this stunner is named. This perfume will grow on you and never overpower you, but its sweet spicy mysteriousness lingers and wins you over. A masterpiece!

An Arizona dust storm descends upon a vanilla bean milkshake. Dirty and sweet ain't for me.

I can't go into depth and detail regarding the opening of scents/smell, but can state that this is a keeper as far as longevity and quality. A small amount goes a long way and lasts the entire day. First purchase that I've had luck lasting as long as Taklamakan. It is a bit heavier than most of my past purchases, but works quite well with my body chemistry. A rich, dark, bold punch with the opening and develops on my skin into an incredible vanilla spice of sorts. As with anything, I'd start with a sample, as no two individuals will yield the same results. I've learned the hard way when reading reviews on this site. I'm thrilled with this parfum and hope others have the same luck.

Not so keen on this sample. Though husband likes it! There is a suggestion of sweat here. Reminds me very much of Kingdom (Alexander McQueen). Perhaps a few more nuances. Won't be pursuing further.

4 stars because it reminds me of other scents, but it's incredibly well done. The opening does give an impression of warm sand. As it changes, it gets drier and woodier for a period, then becomes a slightly salty vanillic musk with some syrupy resins. Super smooth and no screechy synthetic woods, thank goodness. I only have a sample but would love to go full force with spraying. There are similarities to both Tauer L'Air du Desert Morocain and Lubin Korrigan. This could be their love child.

This scent is amazing I've been trying for over a month to find a signature scent and this is it. I received a sample and fell in love it has so many layers to the scent. once it wears down it leaves a soft musky powder scent. I put it on in the morning and it lasted well over five hours.

Wow! I am going off the sample vial here, but I put half if it on me this morning and here we are 8 hours in and I'm still projecting good. I cant emphasize enough on how great this stuff smells. It doesn't compare to anything . It's a scent of its own. All the notes make one magnificent composition. The best part is that it's under $200! Wow, what a bargain for what you are receiving!
