A truly beautiful oud scent
Still no comment? Then it's time, because I think it would be a great pity if this scent were to be overlooked!
I bought "Oud Mosaic" from Banana Republic because of positive reviews of some Parfum-You Tuber. There was talk of an "easily portable" oud fragrance. In addition, they pointed out the interesting combination with rose and the similarity to "Oud Ispahan" by Christian Dior, for which one would have to pay 350 Euro for the table of the house.
I can't say anything else about the similarity to "Oud Ispahan", as I've never smelled this perfume before, but I haven't regretted my blindbuy in any case. Oud Mosaic" is a truly fascinating perfume. At first sight it takes some getting used to, but in no time at all it will cast a spell over you.
Oud is often described as "mystical", which is not really a description of a fragrance in the strict sense of the word, but it does more or less typify the scent of this perfume. Oriental mysticism, smoke, a light rose, a lot of plum, the latter fermented slightly alcoholic, this is how I would most likely describe the smell. In the beginning the fruitiness of the plum is more predominant, I don't smell the rose so much, but later it becomes more flowery, until the orientalism of the oud and spices becomes more and more prevalent. All in all, a fragrance progression that tempts you to smell it again and again, which for me, among other things, is a main criterion of a good perfume.
In addition, the silage and above all the durability is outstanding. My first test sprayer in the crook of my arm I could smell the closest after showering [!] still clearly!
Fascinating, different, dark, lovely, strange, mysterious and sexy, all this is it, this fragrance. In addition to this, it is of absolutely high quality, coming in a simple but noble bottle, and all this at a rather low price...
