Oud for all
The first time smelled at Breuninger in the summer of 2020. Had something of Tobacco Vanilla and suddenly I smelled everywhere only Oud Save the King. Instead, it has then become Tobacco Oud.

However, the scent hasn't let me go. I have tried him lately in every Pafumerie again and with the time I have then fallen in love.

First woody, slightly dark oud. Then comes the earl grey tea (with a dash of milk, of course). The suede stays strong there the whole time. Sweetened by some iris and in my opinion a slight scent of dried fruit.
Is oud, but a very good to wear oud which many like.

A fragrance for an English gentleman at home in front of the fireplace. (However, also well wearable by ladies).

Makes no headache and not too intrusive or penetrating.
H / S is not the best but no matter, re-spray

Like a Nutella crepe
If you put coziness in a bottle, you're probably going to get "Oud Save The King".

The first time I tested this fragrance knocked me out. Not in the positive sense. Too violently was the spice and sweetness, which prepared itself there on my arm...
Nevertheless, I could not stop sniffing it. Constantly I caught myself taking deep breaths and this perfume became more and more pleasing to me.
It is like the first bite into a Nutella Crepes: First it tingles before sweetness unpleasantly at the teeth. But then, you want more of it.

Yes, it's sweet. Yes, it definitely has something of Nutella with oriental topping. Goddamn YES, you can definitely get a sugar flash from it.

But in the end, for me, it's THE scent I wear when I'm craving coziness on a cold evening.

It brings me into a comforting, warm and soft world that envelops me and shields me from the cold out there.

Nice gourmandy oud with suede!
It was a blind buy for me with the Black Friday deal. I’d heard Sebastian talked about it and always wanted to try it. I love it at the first sniff and so glad that I got it. It’s smoothly blended with the suede, sandalwood, and vanilla. I can definitely detect slight hint of the oud and tea notes. It is more like a gourmandish oud and oriental fragrance with strong suede accord in it. I love suede and I think it’s the suede and tea that makes it so smooth and soft. It last very long on my perfume eating skin but with weak to moderate projection. Need a few more sprays to enhance the projection. I never smelled the 24 Gold that you all talked about but this is definitely a quality adorable and my kind of scent with great value. For a quality niche fragrance, its price is very ok. It is a 8.5/10 for me.

Oriental King
For me, one of the best entry fragrances into the subject of oud. My girlfriend loves this fragrance, which has even bottled what of it to be able to smell the fragrance at home. Find him even good for ladies wearable. Absolute purchase recommendation. Got the fragrance on Black Friday for 109 € and must say so he is by far price / performance of the best fragrance I have.

after 48 hours of sniffing the paper strip again:
One of my new favorite fragrances.
A couple of friends with other samples for testing: both liked Atkinsons best.
The scent components suede, oud and sandalwood are and remain odourless. The bergamot had been crumbling from the beginning and need not be. Earl Grey tea: can you drink it, I have not smelled it.
Sprayed onto a strip of paper 48 hours ago and you can still smell the scent today. Lickaaaaaaa !

Truly royal!
"Your Excellency", may I roll out the red carpet? This smell is truly royal, there's no doubt about it. It's so damned elegant, so delicious, so perfect... This sweetness with the oud, it's just porn, but not everyone will like it. I was 100% blown away, though. You feel perfectly dressed for any occasion. I can't think of a scent to top this one. This scent also suits the ladies very well. One feels for many hours caressed by this divine elegant scent, which is almost impossible to put into words. I wore it once in the gym, I can only say that there was restlessness and that was 100 percent in a positive sense. This fragrance will definitely accompany me my life

Oud Save The King From Sandalwood
Not a Kingly oud whatsoever, but a smooth one. Many have expressed that "oud" doesn't play a major role in saving the King. That is quite accurate. In fact, sandalwood is the MVP among notes. There are a notable amount of comparisons to 24 Gold by Scent Story, but I'm thinking 24 Gold meets Le Labo Santal 33. Suede has a lot to do the texture of this fragrance, as a leather note will always sway in a masculine direction. A misleading title doesn't always equal a bad fragrance, unless you had your heart on oud taking the throne. It's such a suave and sultry take on sandalwood, I'm not even disappointed about the lack of oud.

Oud saved my day
The other day - another home office day on short time - I had enough time and so it happened that on this day several perfumes reached my mailbox. First of all, Atkinson's Oud save the King from England. As a friend of blind purchases - ashes over my head - this was one too, it was on sale and the notes suede, oud and Earl Grey tea seemed promising. The parcel arrived, the bottle was already extremely valuable, even with engraved writing. It's not something you find every day. My manager colleague thought so too, as it turned out in the video call. He himself is a friend of classic, straightforward fragrances. I had already completed the first test there and it was exciting, the tea at the beginning has something. It smells really unique. Afterwards the oud becomes dominant, I notice it. Or I imagine to perceive it. On this day it ended here, because the scent has no mad sillage, more scents arrived and I tested and tested and tested.

A few days later I dealt with Oud save the King in detail. It started again with a refreshing teen note. Little by little the scent became more skin-tight, in my eyes honestly too fast. When you smell it, you hear an oud scent that comes across differently than you would expect. The teeny-tale scent fakes a kind of medicinal oud. But we are far from that. It is an oud that is cut to fit the nose of the West, but it is quite rough.

If you stop here because of the restrained sillage, you will miss the last phase of the fragrance, which lasts for a good eight hours. The oud gets finer and finer. The oud gets more and more absorbed by the sandalwood, it becomes very sweet and fragrant. Maybe this is the part for the king, I don't know. Anyway, this part is my highlight, but you have to wait a few hours for that.

All in all, this is a perfume with multiple evolutions, an unusual but refreshing start that gradually leads to an oud that becomes finer and finer. This is great and classic, this is oud for work and mild days

Great oud smell!
The Oud Save The King still needs to be tested in performance, but I was positively surprised that this fragrance is not too penetrating either, but pleasantly woody, spicy and with a hint of vanilla that is getting stronger and stronger. I have already tried the Acqua di Parma and YSL powders and found both a bit too penetrating/aggressive. So with both I am really pleased with the scent and the Atkinsons would certainly be a more masculine oud variation and a good change from the Oud Wood.

So many acquaintances here!
When I get a new fragrance pack from a dear perfumer, I always have to sniff all the sample bottles right after opening to get a first impression of the fragrance. So it is here. But what is that? This all smells very well known.

When I sprayed it on, my first suspicion was confirmed and I even added someone I know and appreciate very much. I don't smell the notes I see listed here in the pyramid at all, but if I read one or the other comment here, I'm probably not alone with it
Oud? I don't find it here. In the beginning maybe a little bit, but that has nothing to do with the oud, what I know otherwise. Leather? No, right? So I can't sniff out leather with the best will in the world.

What I perceive at the very beginning is a touch of Méchant Loup from L'Artisan. This is one of my favourite men's fragrances at all, as it skilfully plays with the theme of gourmand notes without making the fragrance too sweet. For my taste, too sweet delicacies should rather be reserved for women. It doesn't seem right for a man. This one also gets a similarly good curve, whereby I would clearly classify it as unisex and not as men's fragrance. This one smells delicious on women
Later on, other good acquaintances, such as Bonds I Love New York for All or the almost identically scented Mousee au Café by Maison des Reves, report. Both coffee-vanilla scents, whereby neither coffee nor vanilla nor the previously perceived nut are contained in the Oud Save the King. Is my nose broken now? I don't know, I don't know. But that's how the Atkinsons smells to me.

The only note I find in the list, and which I actually smell, is the iris. I guess times that takes him the sweetness a little what gives him his authority to be classified as men scent.

In short, it's beautiful, does NOT smell like oud, has gourmands and is easy to wear for both sexes. Anyone who already owns one of the above-mentioned ones could find another purchase candidate here or - like me - doesn't need it here.

The premise is very good and smells amazing on a blotter: oud, wood, boozy. But on me it caused nausea and could not stand it, like TF TV

Sweet, smooth and slightly cloying combo of suede and oud. Very pleasant in small doses but overwhelming after a while.

Not even oud could save this fragrance. Sweet powdery suede with a very flat and boring oud accord.
