Wondermeh
Wonderoud opens as a woody-peppery vetiver-based designer with a sprinkle of sandalwood. Not the slightest hint of oud here to my nose, just a subtle sort of soft, finished medicinal-leathery note on the base (I guess that would be the oud), and a hint of incense – we’re young and hip, no incense, no party! Basically this is Wonderwood with a cheap, light “medicinalish darkish” thing underneath the rest. Which by the way vanishes quite soon, leaving you with a persistent drydown comprising vetiver with a slight ambery-incense undertone... and that’s it. Undoubtedly pleasant, but honestly I can’t find this more than just barely decent. To my nose it’s a perfectly safe and friendly “office scent” which may have been created by Montblanc or Zegna or St Dupont as far as I am concerned, or any other “low-profile” brand like these aimed at thirty-something men with low pretenses and low budgets looking for a safe woody cologne for job interviews. Nothing wrong with that, I am a fan of designer cheapos: but not at this price (and well, not from such a – usually – creative brand). And why call this “oud”?

Kaleidoscopic woods
Well, if the first impression of CDG Wonderoud is that it's not a typical oud perfume, it's a correct one. Your perfumers since the beginning didn't do it to be like that, and including, from what the brand revealed, your structure was made without any oud, until it was introduced some, at the request of PUIG, a variety of Indonesian Oud that Givaudan had acess to. And, this way, Wonderoud end being for me a kaleidoscopic version of the original Wonderwood. All its main elements are here: the cedar, the sandalwood, the green, almost cheese like, cypress, the vetiver, the gaiac, the dry spice aroma, the incense nuance. Still, they don't form either a linear or a classical three layers evolution. It's like, somehow, the woods made images that shake themselves, dissolve and them formed another olfactive shape during its evolution. I smell for quick minutes an oud aroma whith reminds me of a nargamotta one less heavy, more fresh somehow. And then, promptly the oud go out of focus and i notice a dry sandalwood aroma, and then after the curious aforementione cypress, which reminds me of green leaves with something slightly moldy that reminds me of cheese. Begore this impression become overwhelming, the vetiver mixes itself to the smell, changes the focus of the cypress to aits green grass and wood vetiver aroma and when you realize you notice that the vetiver woody aroma is itself mixed into the oud too. It's a fragrance at least curious, the interchange of woody impression is something that i don't remember having seeing happening this way in another creation.

Many different (and synthetic) woods combined in interesting and at the same time "full-bodied" way. Remarkable!+1
