Nice try
In addition to his work as church music director, my former choir director was also an honorary professor at the Musikhochschule Lübeck. He once told us that it was only by the way they entered the building that it was possible to immediately distinguish the aspiring singers, for example, from the organists becoming. Later.

With a little goodwill, it actually smells a bit like oud, latently cheesy. Of course, this provokes thoughts of the declaredly oud-free 'NOOUD' by Baruti, with which 'Oud Wood & Amyris' can compete neither in terms of volume nor self-confidence. Yes, the camouflage oud quickly recedes in a stealthy way in favour of a peppered and cedar-ventilated sandal interim cream, which appears gently sweaty.

After about an hour, a mixture of cedar-dominated, lame wood creeps around, which is to be given a hint of oud by means of a subtle acidity. Unfortunately this is only partly possible, the emphasis is too much on the light wood, whose aroma also touches the border to artificial wood. As we proceed, we can only suspect a hint of a cowshed note directly on the skin, which hastily and shamefacedly was slightly sweetened. Nice try.

The fragrance is therefore particularly exciting as a didactic play about how differently non-ud can be implemented. 'NOOUD', to take the picture above, is the singer with his legs apart and walking along loudly and 'Oud Wood & Amyris' a particularly shy organist who prefers the side entrance to not be addressed.

The durability is de facto barely six hours, because after that there is only a small amount of plain wood left, which I would now certainly consider unsupported synthetic; reminds me of the MGOs. In addition, a few molecules of a diffuse creaminess with a bitter impact wander around.

An ugly exit. Once again, 100BON is unable to grow with a common pound of natural fragrance perfumery: rich base notes.

Conclusion: Well, a nice try. And obviously 100BONs are not necessarily cream-heavy.

I thank Bellemorte for the sample.

PS: I have simply assumed that this fragrance does not use any real oud, but tries a replica. Anyway, it's not mentioned anywhere.

Sandalwood seasoned with pepper
Amyris is a tree that grows mainly on some West Indian islands. The oil of the balsam tree, as it is also called, has a scent similar to sandalwood.

The start of Oud Wood & Amyris is very woody and spicy, the thyme sends greetings, and I don't really like that much, but this fragrance impression will soon be softened by some bergamot.

After about 45 minutes pepper is added, still very reserved. Another 30 minutes later, the rose geranium in particular can turn the fragrance a little into a flowery-woody one.

From the third hour the rose geranium has retreated and Oud Wood & Amyris becomes a beautiful spicy, woody and warm scent with a sandalwood note with pepper.

Oud Wood & Amyris is an mMn very masculine fragrance, I didn't find the one with the name Oud in it. Who loves the scent of sandalwood has a good alternative here.

The charisma of Oud Wood & Amyris is very powerful for the first two hours and only slowly becomes more subtle. The shelf life is more than 10 hours. Warmly recommended for winter and autumn.

Joyful peach fruity floral
The name of Oud Wood & Amyris is quite misleading, as I only briefly perceive a passing smoky note at the very beginning, which might be associated to oud or amyris but probably stems from guaiac wood and papyrus indicated above.

The fragrance then proceeds to turn fruity. During the first 30 minutes, I can detect a fresh spicy undertone of coriander and a delicate creamy touch of sandalwood. But they're eventually lost in this joyful, succulent peach, adorned by the green rosy hue of geranium, the golden warmth of ylang ylang and a pinch of the tarry sweetness of thyme.

The sillage is relatively close to skin, and the longevity is around 6 hours. Although the name surely implies a traditionally masculine woody fragrance, I can't stress enough that Oud Wood & Amyris actually wears more like a fruity floral with enough subtle nuances. As long as one is not deterred by the initial short-lived smoky woody opening, I think it would make a lovely and affordable peach fragrance.
