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
