Shihan by Piotr Czarnecki

Shihan, formerly Sensei, is a boozy, spicy tobacco flourishment. It smells like a boozy coffee unlike Kilian’s Black Phantom that goes in a milky caramel direction. This perfume is more coffee without the milk or sweets, .it goes into a dry direction. If you like it spicy, this is the one to do . Just think of having coffee with booze in it, without having the milk or sweet layer, and a cigar. Shihan is one of the best tobacco fragrances- a great boozy fragrance with the spices as king.
