"Many animals..
...have swum through my ego with red blood" (F. Villon, poem by P. Zech)

If you are looking for an oud perfume, you will not get your money's worth: Ambré Oud is an amber perfume - and indeed, people believe that the scent is the product of a sperm whale's digestive tract, spewed into the salty head of a dark sea. Is it bad? - Not at all!

If you're looking for a pleasing perfume, you won't like Ambré Oud: the scent is animalistic, perhaps bestial - secretive! The art is not always beautiful and yet it can be inspiring: the more hurtful, disturbing, extreme it is to us, the more rousing and seductive it can be at times. This does not have to be the case - but the beautiful does not have to be light, delightful and sugar-sweet either. Often it is painful, and it is precisely in the process that it unfolds its special, deep appeal. ((Greek) mythology, painting, poetry, music, film)

You don't have to be a masochist to love Ambré Oud. It's enough to be open to be overwhelmed and surprised by the bright, pungent sound of this fragrance, by the composition's balsamic, animalistic, quirky and peppery notes, by the passionate, hypnotic, ecstatic and wild statement of this perfume.

Not a Raphael (like some of the renaissance scented paintings, e.g. from the house of Dior) that you MUST love, but certainly a good Dix that you can fall for if you value more in life than perfection, flawless beauty and cotton candy.

No fragrance for the office - except at the spirits producer
It's funny with some scents, they always evoke the same associations in very different people. Sometimes they are very cheap scents that give off an individual and fragrant scent. Sometimes they also go in one direction, which is not for everyone. So Ambre Oud begins with an alcoholic note, nicely titled Whiskey Cask Accord. Two kinds of fruit have fallen into this cask and so the whole thing smells. Especially the beginning is brute. So I thought I'd write down a few points you shouldn't do with the perfume:

- Driving a car and getting into a police control
- show up at work in the morning, if you are known as the colleague who is addicted to alcohol
- meet a good customer during the day and have a suspicious looking drink in front of you
- Give presentations/speeches and get flustered more often
- Go to the children's school performance (applies analogously to parent-teacher conferences)
- show up early in the morning on the football field (unless you are kicking yourself and it is district class B/C, then the opposite applies)
- Visits to relatives (depending on the situation, sometimes better though)
- Meeting of alcoholics anonymous
- Events of denominations where alcohol is frowned upon
- Job interviews or salary negotiations
Yes, quite a lot, but it's because of the projection of this scent. On the skin, it smells much more harmless, in fact, more like oud. Leather can also be recognized in the aftertaste. All in all a perfume that is very powerful. The durability is not great but the sillage, people stagger and slurp slightly 30 meters further. I also like to use it to get my wife drunk (of course not. She already knows it) Ambre Oud is heavy, he is also a bit sweet and straightforward. The fragrance doesn't unfold so insanely, it becomes softer through the amber, oakmoss I can also imagine, because Ambre Oud never overheats despite its contents and its heaviness. Because of its properties, it is best worn in the evening to end the day with a good glass in your hand, sitting in the garden and watching the sun go down. I can prove this empirically and can only agree with the previous speakers. This could also be an expensive niche

An elegant and smooth oriental for constant use
[short review]
Amber with oud is a combo hard to resist for me. In my opinion as well, Baldessarini is an underrated designer producing fragrances that smell more expensive than their actual price.
After trying the Baldessarini Ambré fragrance, that I liked very much, I targeted Ambré Oud as easily deserving a blind buy. And I am glad I did it. It is very usable so you may try it safely in an office environement or plain every day use.
It may be considered a flanker to the original due to the similar amber trail present in its DNA. However, and besides the introduction of mild peaceful oud, the apple note is a lot less noted and there is a new boozy whisky accord in the fragrance opening.
This very well blended Ambré Oud also offers you some patchouli, leather and incense hints, making it a perfume easy to wear several times with cold weather. The light touch of whiskey in the opening gives this perfume a nice touch and makes it a bit more unique.
Performance is average, and the projection is not really strong. I was expecting a bit more sillage but I may consider it fair due to the smoothness of the oud and other used ingredients.
I do pick some small similarities with Interlude Man by Amouage and Amber Oud by Trussardi and both those perfumes are highly regarded. I invite you to take your own conclusions as well.

The Etruscan Oud
This is how I imagine December 12, 627 as an event of the Roman Persian War.
An injured Roman returns to Italy.
The whiskey barrel at the Limes and the Roman armour from Ninive create this fragrance.
A quite nice fragrance as already mentioned here fans will get their money's worth here
The whiskey barrel and the amber also result in something animal

Amber and Oud got married and were happy ever after. Priest Baldessarini conducted the ceremony. Not to be missed by amber and oud lovers.
