Royal Oud
I have, recently, picked up the questionable habit of shopping On Board Duty Free while flying to and fro from various destinations for work. The latest such acquisition made just a few hours ago is an 80ml bottle of Chopard's Oud Malaki and it's really fantastic!!

Dominique Ropion, IMHO, is a genius of the perfumery world. I don't own all of his creations, but I have tried most and some of his most lauded work graces my collection. There is an inevitable stamp to his perfumes, once again evident here in the beautiful Oud Malaki (Malaki means 'Royal' in Arabic.)
A bracing and bitter top note of Grapefruit and Artemisia (mugwort) is short lived, but M.Ropion gets into the Oud nitty gritty of this fragrance almost right off the bat. It is surrounded by a beautiful pipe tobacco sweetness, banishing any medicinal quality it may have and reminding me somewhat of Amouage's Opus V for a few short minutes before a relatively raw leather note creates an animalistic purr similar to Opus V's soft civet note. It's extremely agreeable, soft and completely encased by an incredible sweet tobacco ... like a pipe filled with Cherry Tobacco waiting to be lit.
Ropion's command of spices is magical, with a faint trace of what my nose perceives as Cinnamon and a touch of Ginger present here. By this stage I am reminded of my favorite Ropion creation, Costume National Homme, but muted ... as if looking at it through roughened glass. The Oud here is ever-present but not 'in your face' ... it feels as if a gossamer veil of the stuff has been drawn over this fragrance, supported by other precious woods.

Oud Malaki is a unique take on this 'note du jour' ... a very accessible fragrance with great sillage and longevity. I am rather blown away that this is produced and distributed by Coty ... albeit their prestige line. Highly recommended ... and it doesn't break the bank either ... mine cost under $100.

Very nice smell. Different, not like many others parfums. Has it's own smell. That is what I enjoy about it. Just different, commands!+1
