Great bang for your buck!
Not being a big fan of the classic oud and rose combo, I was slightly hesitant to try this one out. Turns out it's actually really good. The opening eastern blast of saffron and oud is drier than in many others scents, and when the rose enters it's dark and sort of held back - probably as it mixes very well with the patchouli. The drydown is far more western smelling with sandalwood, musk and amber - but it simply smells great and lasts a loong time.

Based on the notes listed here, I could suspect my decant to be of Arabian Oud Woody Intense, as I find quite a bit of saffron in the opening and blending in with the oud - but of course I could be mistaken.

Even if it's not exactly cheap at 60£/80$ for 100 ml, it's still a great bang for the buck with an excellent projection and a longevity that is through the roof - I get 8-12 hours consistently with only two sprays.

Edit - just checked the notes listed on AO's website and they are as follows : Saffron, rose, sandalwood, patchouli, dry amber, musk and oud.

Westernized or Easternized?
It's difficult to know if this is an middle east fragrance launched to the west or vice-versa.

Personally i think Woody is between East and West. This is a very well blended fragrance that smells very natural. Not anything complex, but rather a simple composition that's just delicious.

Very different from Montale or other oud launches. There is no "medicinal" oud smell here, but a woody and clean smell. Roses also are not so proeminent as in those other scents.

The drydown is woody/musky with hints of amber. And indeed wonderful. This is not a heavy fragrance, but as said before, this is in the middle, whcih means it can be used all year around.

Sillage, lasting power and projection are medium-high. Stays for about 10 hours in the skin.

Definetely grabbed my attention, so i must find out more releases from Arabian Oud.
