No oud, but an extremely pleasant scent at a more than reasonable price...
I blind bought this for about 6 € and have been using it as a body spray through most of the winter, where it mixes perfectly with most sweet tobacco scents and is excellent for layering..

I have the Body Perfume version (sic) - not deodorant but with a pump action spray instead of aerosol, and am actually pretty impressed - longevity is not very good with about three to four hours of projection, but the scent itself is great with vanilla, tobacco, patchouli and some spices, could be clary sage.

Olfactorally OWAV for me lies somewhere between Fendi pour Homme and Tom Ford Noir Extreme.

Overall a great bargain that punches well above it's weight.

Easy oud entry
A cheap entry into the oud world. For around 4 euros to get current you can dive into the direction of Oud. Of course, you can demand for the few euros no "real" oud but you times in the fragrance direction purely schnubbern like that is a good start. In addition, the very light vanilla, which sweetens the woody something. Quite ok, but still no must have.

Oud? I don't think so...
Well, first thing to keep in mind: there is no oud! Still, it is an extremely pleasant perfume at a more than reasonable price. I bought it for about 5 € and I have used it at leisure (I do not consider it ideal for the office, nor for very hot days).

Longevity is not very good, but the projection lasts about two hours. The perfume itself is great with vanilla, tobacco, patchouli and some spices (sage?). The bottle is made of metal and the sprayer is very similar to an aerosol (it looks like a deodorant). It could be a good excuse to use as a body spray and not as a perfume. I see no resemblance to TF Oud Wood (no oud), for me it is somewhere between Mustache and Go Dark.

Overall, a great bargain that is well worth the purchase given that there is no risk of spending a lot of money (just don't expect oud).

Smells expensive - Compliment getter for 8 €
If only it weren't an Axe....

BUT honor to whom honor is due. The fragrance is very balanced, smells wonderfully gourmandig by the vanilla and has a touch of designer / niche fragrance by the oud (albeit fake).
I first had the matching DEO to it and later discovered that there is a perfume to it.

So directly on Amazon and behold for 8 € gibts the matching fragrance. For the price you can not go wrong so same Ordered.
When he arrived I applied him of course directly to test his perfomance.

Perfomance:
As expected, the scent of course does not last all day, BUT the first 3-4 hours he is definitely perceptible and has already brought me the one or other compliment. In combination with the deodorant you get here a really good and balanced fragrance that definitely deserves his respect.

Fragrance:
When spraying you get a tiny hint of pepper and tangerine. It's like a little trailer for a movie. You smell how the fragrance will develop. In the dry down, however, vanilla clearly dominates. This gourmand vanilla combined with the fake oud was really well executed here. It pulls itself quasi linear from the opening to the dry down. Where the fresh notes from the top note already evaporate after a few minutes. But I also did not want to have. Therefore, I am more than satisfied with this fragrance. Even if it is an AXE. But no one needs to know that ;-)

It's Lynx / Axe
I used to use Lynx / Axe when I was in school, so when I saw they had brought out this collection I thought I should at least try it. The fragrance, as you would expect, contains a lot of oud but it also smells quite sweet thanks to the vanilla which is equally as noticable. There are some other notes in there that I'm not quite able to point out by myself, but looking at the notes listed here I'd have to say mandarin and nutmeg, but not as much as the oud or vanilla.

All in all, this is a decent fragrance and lasts about 6-7 hours. In my opinion it's suited more for the colder months as a daily fragrance, I don't think it's going to be a first choice for many people, I myself just keep this in my car in case I need a blast of something, but I wouldn't start my day wanting to wear this as it is very much Lynx / Axe quality, I mean even the container looks like a deodorant can...

It’s a super simple soft woody and vanilla scent. Its simplicity makes it great for layering (I mix it with Franck Olivier oudTouch).

The smell = really good (got me even compliments believe it or not). The performance = moderate/weak. All with all a save buy for 5 euro.

A good smelling, cheap and simple option from Lynx / Axe.
I keep a bottle in my car in case I have no other option, but it's never a go to.
