A 'must try' for oud lovers!
I find this to be an excellent oud fragrance, very long lasting. The woody sharpness of the oud is softened just slightly with the addition of vanilla, great for times when you want a lighter scent. It's good on it's own, and also lends itself well to layering with a variety of other perfumes and oils. I totally agree with the many reviewers who said that they find the quality of this fragrance to be FAR higher than it's price. I've been trying to convince people for years that expensive does not necessarily equal quality, mostly to no avail - but I've personally tried samples of quite a few high priced oud fragrances, and found Sultan Al Oud to be as good, and in some cases better, than all but one of them. I'm looking forward to trying more of these Arabian oils! EDIT: I'm wearing this today layered with violet leaf eo - it's a FANTASTIC combination!!
