Occidental Oud
I'm not a big fan of the oud. I love almost all kinds of wood except oud. This one is oud for those who don't really like oud. Very synthetic, very westernized, without the typical goatbeard smell or even the fecal smell of oud
Starts with a lot of limoncello and papyrus and goes over into the oud phase quite fast. Nothing for me but for those who absolutely must have an oud in the collection although they don't like oud, a good option. I get a bit of a headache every time I spray this fragrance on it but maybe it's just a personal thing

Brutal fruit
"Wow, what is that?! Great thing! Could be my signature scent." - So were my first impressions when I took Byredos Oud Immortel (the encore of my favorite fragrance house). This is certainly an extraordinary fragrance. Rarely, however, has an overwhelming beginning turned into the opposite for me.

It begins with an almost brutal artificial fruitiness (the limoncello?), perhaps pushed by the patchouli, although the papyrus is highlighted in the fragrance pyramid. (I have no idea what papyrus smells like.)

In any case, it remains with this beginning and this fruitiness also in the next hours. It reminds me a little of the "fragrance process" in the ripening process of a mango. I love mango, but when it is overripe, the smell in its obtrusiveness is hardly bearable.

Apart from this fruitiness, Oud Immortel ultimately offers little; the impression remains of a very loud, one-dimensional fragrance that has no development. I will probably no longer wear the scent and only store it for "study purposes", because - as I said - it is already interesting

Oud Immortel
This fragrance opens with a bright flower note to which an accord of dried grass adds an interesting nuance of smoke and hay. As this pleasant accord blooms on my skin, I am able to see the tobacco and the papyrus leaves that compose it. The floral top note is quickly engulfed by the tobacco-papyrus melange and from this moment onwards frames the composition. To me this scent is more about hay, dried flowers, mown meadows in August than about humidors, pipe smoke and the smoking rooms of a gentlemen's club. However, as the fragrance progresses there is a shift from the outside (countryside) to the inside (gentlemen's club), because it gradually morphs into the clean, purposely old-fashioned scent of expensive handmade soap. I cannot say which combination of notes is responsible for that, but the result is very nice, but ultimately rather common. I would compare this Byredo offering to Etro's Gomma, although this time I frankly prefer the Byredo.

Nasty lemon powders and a smoking buddhist monk. A bit medicinal, but gradually becoming beautiful high-quality soap. Good performance.

I have had more compliments on this than any other I have. Oddly, I hated it the first time I tested it, but it’s now one of my favorites.

Sexiest perfume I have smelled on someone else. I had to ask what was he wearing.
