Another Armaf Blindbuy...
At first I was very skeptical and afraid that "Armaf Shades Wood" smells like the classic musty rose! It wasn't like that! I was pleasantly surprised how masculine and deep dark this mystical little water comes across. Price performance is top! Durability and Sillage are not "Beastmode" but in the good upper range.

How to start an Oud love affair for pocket change
I will just tell you a couple of words about the Shades Wood flask I ordered, received and tested:
- Cheap price + classy scent = gigantic value!
- Amazing near niche quality oud/rose fragrance!
- I am considering to use it on a pair with Versace's Oud Noir and Aramis Perfume Calligraphy. Yes, Shades Wood is that good!
- Very good performance!
- One of the best dry downs I have experienced with an oud fragrance!
- Just skip the initial 30 seconds while the alchool is evaporating and the scent is to harsh.

My rates for Shades Wood:
Scent Opening:..........8.0
Scent Drydown:.........8.75
Average: 8.09 / 10,00
- between 7 and 8 =above average;
- between 8 and 9 = recomended;
- bigger than 9 = don't miss it;
I do recomend it to oud lovers, and fragrance "entrepreneurs" that want to begin a safe and not expensive oud journey.

Additional comment.
Resellers just take advantage on some customers and sell them fake fragrances. When it concerns perfumes with astrong note of Oud, any fake fragrance may smell like "stable", "greatest joke in fragrance history", "humbug", "cloying, revolting and bad smelling", and so on.

Comment about some negative reviews I read about this and other oud fragrances:
I do like beasty fragrances. It's only natural that I like ouds. I am not a fan of airy or aquatic fragrances (although I like a few of them). I can accept that a person does not like ouds in general or a particular kind of oud. However I consider ridiculous someone to comment that all oud fragrances smell like urinal cakes or a stable. Either that person is not smelling an original perfume, or has never been in a stable, or something is wrong with his/her pituitary. Armaf's Shades Wood does not really fit in that over animalic picture.
