Complex and beautiful
People who know me knows how much I appreciate Oud and other Natural Aromas from the beginning of my journey. Oud Maximus is one of most complex and beautiful Oud fragnances in my humble collection. As Demitri named this after his son, he made it worthy of that by designing it in such a way that it contains complexity and beautiful facets after facets without breaking the harmony of the total composition. Sometimes, I even prefer it over Oud Monarch, another masterpiece by Demitri Bortnikoff, for it's not being linear which gives me more of a satisfying olfactory experience.

"Oud Maximus Autumn '19 by Demitri Bortnikoff" opens with blast of Citruses wrapped in by some florals (most likely white) in such a way that I can't pinpoint them individually TBH. The blending is so smooth. Of course, there are some sharp edges as they are all rare naturals but it's nothing uninteresting let alone irritating. This monotonous citrusy-floral facet is quite brief to my nose at least. May be for 5 mins, there rises the beautiful Rose and Oud. In this point, not everytime but pretty much regularly I find Oud Maximus shares similar facet with Amber Aoud by Roja Dove. As because, this facet doesn't last long rather quite short, this may be reason that I couldn't catch this phase of Maximus each and everytime I experience Oud Maximus. However, from this point, true beauty of this fragnance emerges by blooming Oud, Rose and Beautiful Musk along with Frangipani and evidently soft spices. One thing I would like to add here that the whole composition or the appearance of the fragrance in any phase is not light, rather sweet, sour, almost fruity and obviously resinous to be precise, at least to my nose. In this particular phase, it shares one of the same Oud-y facet of it's siblings from the same house and that's Oud Monarch which I also own and that's because of beautiful Oud Co-chang from "Feel Oud", a join venture of Demitri and another master perfumer Russian Adam who owns the house "Areej Le Dore". To me, this phase along with the late drydown which I'm about to describe is the longest lasting facet of Oud Maximus. This phase loudly settles down may be at 20-25 mins mark after spraying and lasts may be for next 1.5 to 2 hours. After that the final drydown appears with dominating Musk and Oud though florals and spices still survives but most likely in the back sit. And... this fragrance surprised me again in this phase that it becomes so familiar with another masterpiece from the same house that is "Musk Khabib"!

All in all, Oud Maximus is such a meditating fragnance with facets after facets that sets me in a spiritual journey. I don't hesitate to admit that this one is the most characteristic fragnance from the house of Dimitri Bortnikoff that I tried so far, it's a 10/10 for me whilst I consider Oud Monarch of 9.75/10 (My humble opinion only). I tried Mysterious Oud, Triad, Musk Khabib, Sayat Nova, Amber Cologne, Vesna Cologne apart from these magnificent two I own.

Last but not least, I would urge every Oud admirers to at least try this, trust me... You will encounter something you've never experienced!

Stay safe, stay fragrant ❤️

Direct comparison Oud Maximus Version 2018 & 2019
Finally once again a worthy "opponent" who is worthy of a 1:1 comparison ;-)

Oud Maximus 2018 I got to know through a dear perfume. The version of 2018 is unfortunately sold out and very difficult if not impossible to get hold of.... I am very happy to be the proud owner of this one.
And because I love the fragrance so much, I had to "naturally" get the version from 2019, which is not so easy to get, but after my recent arrival I can call my own (*Joy*)

So now I would like to compare the two versions with each other...
(Left the version 2018 and right the version 2019 sprayed on)

Oud Maximus 2018 begins gently "civet-pissing" (as I also mentioned in my statement), accompanied by a gentle rose and a slightly sweet and tangy orange....
Discreet musk tones appear from time to time and make a wonderful addition....
Gentle spices play along and the ever-present oud in 4 different variations gives an insane kick: a little ferkelig and dirty, but absolutely "bearable", smooth and for me really really cool.... Yeah!
All in all, I would describe the 2018 version as "flowery, orange, oudig"....

Oud Maximus 2019 also begins with gently pissing civet, but here, too, a strongly "oudy" mess comes to light right at the beginning....
In contrast to the 2018 version, I can't catch an orange in the 2019 version, but rather something herbaceous. I really like that here....
And as with the 2018 version, the spices in the 2019 version come out beautifully and gently...
I can also recognize rose in the 2019 version, plus a nice jasmine and light frangipani, which together give the fragrance a little sweetness (discreet)...
The oud in its 4 versions is in my opinion a bit more pronounced in the 2019 version and therefore the floral notes have been scaled back a bit....
Also the always resonating deer musk is clearly recognizable and for me - a little more pronounced than in the 2018 version...
All in all I would describe the 2019 version as "animalistic, oudig, spicy"...

In direct comparison, I find the 2018 version to be somewhat more delicate than the 2019 version.
As far as S&H is concerned, the 2019 version is clearly ahead and has considerably more power and volume.

For me, the 2019 version is a bit nicer, because it is a bit coarser and more massive than the 2018 version. Also because the flower part is a bit reduced - and the oud was turned up a bit...
Nevertheless I do not want to miss either of them....

But try it yourself, I am curious about your opinions :-))

So my dear ones, now you know ;-)

Initially bright spicy-citric, this slightly animalic, yet powdery floral-woody Mid season fragrance, settles to warm musky woody base.
