Widian – Black Collection – Black II
Black II by Widian can rightly be regarded as a sweet and fruity Arabian seduction.
The fragrance preludes excellently with a juicy, but not overripe (and therefore not too sweet) fruity plum paired with lively tangerine slices that become fuller and sweeter – and therefore more opulent. The rose can’t be held back for long: A fruity, youthful rose with a sweet- natured expression. One that fits perfectly with the top notes and in a duet with sandalwood enters into a wonderful marriage. Sandalwood shows itself as hot-spicy, almost balsamic, seductive and sensual in its sweetness, but still possesses its inherently pleasant tart woodiness. A wonderful combination of sandalwood and rose.
Widian has created a very expressive and accomplished fragrance: The fruits in the head, the heart completely devoted to a wonderful combination and the base, which is accompanied by creamy vanilla cream and a hint of bitter moss.
Flacon and Packaging
The flacon and packaging design for the Black Collection was inspired by the grandiose architecture of the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, which was officially opened in Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates in 2007. It is the largest mosque in the United Arab Emirates and the eighth largest in the world.
The interwoven pattern on the flacon and packaging reflect the careful design of the arches and domes of the mosque and thus emphasize the uniqueness and quality of the olfactory treasure contained within.
Opening the packaging is like opening a door to another world, where the familiar and unknown combine to provide a magical experience.

His olfactory journey began in his homeland, the Arabian Desert, surrounded by the aromas of oud, amber, incense and rare Arabian flowers. From his extraordinary passion for perfumes, Ali Al Jaberi was inevitably drawn to Paris, the traditional center of the perfumer’s art. There he met the “nose”Jean-Claude Astier and fulfilled his dream of learning the fine art of perfumery.
Upon returning home, Ali Al Jaberi united the treasures of the Arabian Desert with the secrets of French perfumery and created veritable fragrances that tell of his journey through two worlds.
