What Others Are Saying

5 stars

Ground No. II is not for the faint of heart. No, rather it's a punchy, rich, earthy, smokey mix that has you coming back again and again to take another whiff. Notably, because it's the first fragrance we've come across that uses unique scents like coriander, saffron, ginger, orris, fig, oud, vetiver and guaiac wood.

5 stars

Liberty's best recent find is Gabar: a beautifully considered fragrance line that pays homage to its native Myanmar. Each scent in the small edit boasts striking realism, transporting you to a place in nature from first spritz. Ground uses pink pepper, creamy fig and smooth sandalwood to create an olfactory tribute to the ancient city of Bagan.

New kid on the block Gabar is one of the fragrance industry's rising stars, with a trio of scents that celebrate and share the founders' Myanma roots. "Don't make us pick a favorite," we'd beg before ultimately choosing No. II Ground as the winner. Its flawless recipe is inspired by Myanmar's traditional and famous Thanaka cream; the scent builds around wood bark, with embellishments of fig, saffron, and sandalwood.

Gabar is a new women-led fragrance brand inspired by three distinct locations in Myanmar. Their scent Ground is a rich, creamy fragrance of sandalwood, patchouli, saffron, and fig that evokes the arid plains of Myanmar’s ancient capital of Bagan. Its elegant composition is an intriguing mixture of tangy La Phet (tea leaf salad) and the soft scent of Myanmar Thanakha (traditional tree bark).

The best cologne for men. Myanmar's ancient city Bagan is the inspiration behind Gabar's excellent Ground fragrance. That explains its powdery, powerful anchor, which both suggests lore and centers the mind. If any scent on this roster is like olfactive Xanax, then Ground is it: Keep it close for the occasional head-clearing huff

5 stars

Best winter fragrances for men The trio of dynamic scents on offer at Gabar take inspiration from the label’s Southeast Asian heritage and more specifically, its Myanmar home. For winter, the best is No.II Ground. A blend of wood bark, sandalwood, saffron and fig, it’s romantic, warm and comforting - and totally unique.

It seems that more and more fragrance brands are starting to take this holistic approach. Take Gabar, for example. This brand has three scents, one to help you feel calm and centred, one to help ground you and one to encourage creativity.
