Dholakia White or White Elephant?

A man to whom I am forever in debt sent me a sampke of Dholakia White some time ago, and I loved it. Not anywhere near as horrible as people make it out to be to take (though to be fair I got my start on Garrett Scotch Plain). I am plotting my next EU order and was getting ready to add it to my cart when I remembered people talking about White Elephant. So I checked it out and it costs (significantly) less and looks pretty similar. Anyone had both? Opinions? Please share your collective wisdom :-)


  • Not knowing what your budget is like I'd suggest getting them both. Sooner or later your curiosity will get the better of you. Variety is the spice of life, IMHO.
  • I like them both equally, not a lot of difference between them that I can tell. When I finish one I'll pick up the other on the next order.
  • Welcome to the white side, Not too long ago just a few years in a land far away, White Elephant was difficult to obtain and rather pricy. since it was only sold in ten can packages . I had wrote my review on a partial can i got in a trade. Since then, batches have changed. She still has a good kick in her or maybe that sample had got stronger. Any how ,shaman recommended you get the big can or two especially when you can save on shipping. If the wife complains just blame me.

    @basement_shaman Yeah, I was thinking at least one of the large Elephant tins. Is there any difference in taste? I never got the "fishy" scent people mention when referring to the Dholakia. More of a "sweat" smell, but not in a bad way. I guess it would be hard to describe to someone who hasn't tried it, wouldn't it?
  • They do taste very slightly different, the Dholakia is a little bit sharper and more vinegar-y. But only if you're looking for differences. They are pretty interchangeable, to be honest. 6 Photo Cheeta has a distinct touch of perfume that makes it different from the other two.

    Opens me up well and I find the Dholakia easier to snuff than White Elephant and Cheetah (not counting Chhap Gul). But it does have the same smell as dried shrimp to me. And combined with Neffa Ifrikia I think the two together combine to make Skunk :D

    6 Photo Cheeta should be added to the powerful whites category.
