Yet another Rose-Oud?!
What can you expect from that scent at such a high price?! Since the expectations are openly not fulfilled, especially with certain brands, only the fragrance is described/evaluated here. And I want to be as objective as possible.

In principle the Nebulous is not for everyone. He certainly won't be a big "Crown-Pleaser" because of his prelude. When sprayed on, it goes straight into the heart notes, i.e. oud (probably Hindi, of high quality) and violet. The violet completes the oud and makes it wearable for those who are not used to the natural oud scent. The rose stays (luckily for me) far in the background and doesn't disturb the composition at all. Is it animalistic? Maybe only in the beginning. It also depends on what kind of standards you use. By and large (and compared to other Boadicea the Victorious fragrances) it is quite tame. The combination of oud, saffron and musk gives it a leathery-woody character, but it remains somewhat blurred. You won't find any edges here.

After about 2-3 hours the base notes come into play. At this point the main conversion takes place. Here the fragrance becomes very velvety, slightly resinous and sweet (but not sweetish). This will probably be the representation of amber. It is light brown and glowing; with traces of rose, which is always hidden in the background. Nevertheless, almost nothing remains of what you smelled in the beginning.

It is a discreet fragrance (because there are less attractive fragrances from the brand), but certainly not the best in this category. If you want to go in this direction, you should try the cheaper "Dead of Night" from Strangelove NYC. "The Night" by Frederic Malle would also be a good candidate.

In conclusion, he is not impressive. The only surprising thing here was violet, which you normally would not find in such fragrances. In terms of performance, the fragrance was not heavyweight. Although you can see all the notes very clearly here, the sum remains quite "nebulous", so I think the name fits quite well.

The stage too big
I'm sure you're familiar with that. You are always looking for this one, suitable stage for yourself, but the current offer of stages offers you only these small, puny things on which you really should not stand, want, and can.
Especially not if you've been standing around on all these stages before, then you know what to expect:

Rose and Oud, you know, it was definitely good to stand next to them, to get to know them, but then, at some point, you know them, and that's good too, you think like that, and secretly long for a bigger stage.

An even bigger stage, with even more glitter, light spots and audience; which inevitably goes along with the bigger stage, one would think. And then, suddenly, it comes like this.
Rose and Oud, even bigger, more beautiful and more phenomenal than ever. BÄM!

But be careful! Not everyone treats you to them. The big stage. What's the problem?
Is it perhaps because the rose, as its article suggests, is female?
Could it be that one does not want to grant such a big, leading role to YOU? And who is 'man'.
Roses have nice, and cute to be, okay, proud yet, but please subordinate, flowery, naive, devout; flower halt. Beautiful to look at, more does not have to at all, more does not want and does not expect man in our all chefigen man world.
No matter what she can do, it quickly gets too much for the pump-y wooden heads, she could run out of rank for them, and where would we get there?
Then rather a daily little girl commentary from girls who are not girls at all.

Sanctions will be instituted, you better not talk, say, write.
Jokes below the belt and ass-klatters must be fine. People know that, people eat that.
And yet Das Oud is gender-oriented but only a hermaphrodite.

Nebulous is looking for the very big stage and his kind.
...and has lost nothing on Parfumo actually. ;)

This smells 99.9% identical to Midnight Degree by the same house of Boadicea the Victorious. But $1,400 more expensive. I find BTV does this a lot.

Nebulous = Midnight Degree.
Elaborate= Complex.
Mayfair= Victory.
Tiangou = The King. BTV Hood collection.

Save money and buy the cheaper!

Astronomical
I went down to Harrods to try this perfume and I have been blown away! I had one spray on my wrist which was beast mode and its the third day and I can still smell the dry down which is exquisite woody, musky animalic. This perfume has surpassed all of Roja Dove's creations and anything out there. I was told Nebulous has 43% perfume oils more than the standard parfum (15-30%) concentration. The initial spray is a blast of the rose and saffron and then the ouds and after 12 hours or more it turned into this divine skin scent which I have been getting wafts off from my wrist, third day today. This is one astronomical perfume and worth every penny spent. Yes, it is very very expensive at £1250 but I got the Harrods 10% discount which helped. Life is short and you live only once, so why not enjoy the little luxuries of life if one gets the chance. I would highly highly recommend Nebulous to anyone to try who is up for the challenge. Just one spray is enough and this bottle will last a lifetime. Kudos to Boadicea
