On your third drink, as the smell of fine cigars fills the room of scholars, prepare to say ‘checkmate’ in your most devilish voice. It’s the familiar scent of worn carpets, hand carved chess pieces, smoky oud, and burnt maple. It screams winter break for Harvard students that opted to not go home. One part rebel spirit, one part coziness - this is a storytelling fragrance.

Chess at Knight

This scent is wildly addicting. It's a little bit sweet from the maple, earthy from the oregano, spicy from the clove, woodsy from the base notes. I mean--- dayum. Checkmate has it all. It performs so well in CAC at 10%, I also use it in cologne and room spray with excellent results. Don't sleep on this beautiful scent.

Great Throw!!

I was seriously blown away at how well this performed in wax! I got a wonderful CT and the HT once cured was out of this world! Cozy & complex, I really love this scent in my bedroom or office!

Warm & Cozy

First off, this throws very well for me. I have several customers who say they could bathe in it. It’s the type of scent that appeals to both men and women. It’s warm and sexy. It’s great for any time of the year and smells very high end.

Checkmate is addictive

I realized i had not reviewed this one and it is one of my favorites. It's spicy,sexy and addictive. I love it all year round. There is a depth to it that screams expensive unisex fragrance

My absolute favorite Simbi fragrance

A year round fave. Warm, cozy and sophisticated. Strong hot and cold throw in coconut heavy blends.
