The gentleman´s scent
I got today my delivery from CREED directly, and the bottle was nicely packed in a gift bag and all done with care.

So far, the impression is good, but what about the juice?

Well, I can tell you that the juice is as impressive as the packaging is .. it has a rich, dark colour and it smells also before you open the box. It has the very seductive aroma of Angelica, which reminds me strongly about the French Lover by Frederic Malle.

After all, Pierre Burdon was the master inspiration for Julien Rasquinet and his teacher into the craft of perfumery (Thanks Gabe Oppenheim!).

I had the pleasure to discuss with Julien once about the Royal Oud, and he mentioned that Olivier Creed insisted that a lot of high quality OUD should be used into this composition, and I can tell you that is so perfectly blended that it´s not easy to perceive, but it´s there.

The development of the scent is phenomenal .. it gets from a spicy woody note at start, to the lovely, intimate aura of a mysterious gentleman after a few hours.

And it lasts long too, one of the CREEDs without performance issues I would say .. and with the talent of Julien Rasquinet and Olivier Creed´s passion for high quality ingredients, it´s no wonder that Royal Oud is such an impressive scent.

This is here to stay !

Royalty in a bottle
I must admit, I have never been too keen on Creed fragrances. They didn’t seem special or unique, and often overpriced in my opinion. Royal Oud however, is a whole different story. This fragrance is in a league of its own. Even though the name suggests oud, it’s not the main player here, this fragrance is all about the beautiful cedar and sandalwood playing together.

Opens a bit harsh and pungent, but let it sit for about 5 minutes, and watch the magic unfold. I know this seems like a big statement, but in my humble opinion, this would be a fragrance a member of a royal family would wear, whether it’s a prince or a king. That’s how good this stuff is. Royal Oud is not loud or shouting or aiming for attention in any sort of way. It projects just enough to let others get a whiff here and there. It has no need to be loud, cause the smell itself
is out of this world. It knows its worth. It smells so expensive, and it’s blended to perfection. Lasts a good 8 hours, and performs well, which is to be expected with its price tag. You don’t have to wear a suit and tie for this one, but be aware that people will take notice of you. I have heard some say, that it also smells like money or a very wealthy person, and I tend to agree with this. It’s a fragrance that can seem both masterful but also intimidating.

I wore this one time, and I will never forget this experience. I was walking towards a light signal, and it was red.. So we stood around 3-4 people, waiting for the color to turn green. A woman beside me, looked at me without saying anything, she was just starring… I looked at her but she said nothing. She just looked mesmerized, and I could see a curiosity in her eyes, before she walked away as the light turned green again. If you have ever got a compliment from someone, without them even opening their mouth, you know that you’re wearing something special. Julien Rasquinet, thank you for giving us this timeless classic.

Like a fresh fist bump..
... so I thought at the first spray . Simply overwhelming. What tart freshness with lemon, bergamot and pepper. But there's something else. Is it oud? Cedar? Yes, most likely cedar. Oud is a subject of debate in this fragrance, as you know. But that doesn't matter, I thought. Because this fragrance has a composition that I have not smelled so yet.
Fresh, tart and yet with a subtle sweetness that slowly builds up in the course without being somehow unpleasant or even too much or annoying. Just right. Here is cedar not flattering but present and really masculine.
The flattering comes later in the drydown. Since the royal oud becomes tamer and warmer.
A really great fragrance. Perhaps for me the perfect association of a cool autumn day.
but how about the durability... well a fresh fragrance holds yes known not quite so eternally long. Still, I don't know if the presence is enough for me. Because as much as I like him the faster he can go (or is it just in my perception?)
nevertheless I believe that he is worth the money to me and will accompany me after my small tester a flacon...

What’s Oud got to do with it
Very classic scent! There is no oud in this one (my personal opinion).
Cedar/sandalwood/angelica are so good blended in this one.
Fougere & sandalwood is my final experience with this one. If I didn’t knew oud at all I would say that the name is very elegant choosen, but I detect no oud in this one so for the name it’s a big dissapointment…but believe me when I say that this is one of the best fougere / green / sandalwood based frangrances.
Very elegant and light to wear.
A must have for the gentlemen among us!!

Harsh cedar, lemon, I get it now why ATH was not impressed with this.
I was glad that I only got a sample and did not make any purchase. this was a great disappointment.

Gentleman
First impression: Walk through a dry pine forest. At the same time little pine and a lot of hot sand / soil.

After: Woody, creamy and fresh laundry/shower gel in the background.

At the end: reserved gentleman, sympathetic and handsome.

(remains long close on the skin, sillage unfortunately not good)

Words don't come easy
I've been searching for the right words to express my affection for this fragrance for a while now. But somehow the words have not been enough in my imagination so far. But now I want to try it.

It started with a sample, which was enclosed to me to a perfume order. The name Royal Oud appealed to me first not particularly, because I'm really not a big fan of the eagle wood. But of course I wanted to test it anyway. Said, done and it was done around me...
In the first moment, a small bitter green monster hunts in my nose and shows itself quite abrupt. Nix lovely or gentle it has baggage.
(Nevertheless, I found the smell interesting from the first moment and was open-minded and curious for more)
Citrusy and woody notes quickly soothe the little green monster though and it becomes elegant. Really really incredibly elegant.
The woods start to subtly smoke over time, without me calling the scent 'smoky'. But there is this irresistible subtle smoky hint that blends with the woody, citrusy, spicy components and, just sniffed from a slight distance, blends with them impossibly harmoniously. The fragrance radiates a cozy warmth without becoming sweet or too soft, it remains distinctive.
This melange is so sublime, beautiful, casual, appealing and fabulous that I almost forget there are any other perfumes at all.
If you look up the word 'fabulous' in the dictionary, there should be a photo of Royal Oud's bottle next to it ;-)
For me, an absolutely unisex fragrance. I would recommend every person to try a nose of it. If you love exclusively sweet and/or very floral scents, you might not quite warm up to Royal Oud, or it might be your first approach to another scent... who knows.
Oud, by the way, I can not perceive here at any point.

Spicy Bombon
What a fragrance. For me The most balanced Creed. Light, spicy and a little sweet. Angelica and galbanum is a great combination. Unfortunately, really not a good sillage, but keeps close to the skin until the next morning.

Somebody knocked over pepper, picked up wood?
Preface:
My OUD preference started with Gucci Guilty OUD, it was the first OUD fragrance I tested and bought directly. After I had many others under my nose, like Atkinson's, etc., none was as good as Creed's...

Scent:
The first time I sprayed it on my skin, I only noticed the pink pepper in the top note, followed by a minimal hint of lemon. I "searched" for bergamot in vain
After 10 minutes, a pleasant smoky OUD scent crossed my path, just as I had imagined.

After approx. 30 min. I noticed how the musk slightly underlays the smoky OUD & 1 hour later the scent got a bitter and simple pleasant sweetness by the sandalwood, of the pink pepper nothing was "left" anymore.

Conclusion:
Who likes it simple and classic, should not be too bad to test this fragrance! :)

Heaven?
From sample to sample, I hanged myself and searched for the perfect woody scent.
After several suggestions in the fragrance consultation I came across this one.

So I ordered one rehearsal in summer and another one in autumn. With such expensive fragrances I have to look more closely because a 10ml sample is not enough, considering that the cheapest supplier advertises the 100ml for just under 200€. Accordingly, I was able to compare different batches.
The sample I ordered in the summer (19P11) had on my skin a medium silage but much better durability. And on the last sample the sillage was fortunately better. Now I can also say that the whole thing is ok, because the scent itself is like heaven on earth.

The Royale Oud actually starts with citric cedar wood. The bergamot refines the whole thing really well, there is also a sweet-peppery undertone. So that the whole morsh-(slightly) sweet-citric at the beginning works. Over the course of the fragrance after 1-2 hours we have more cedar, accompanied by angelica and galbanum. What seems so cheerful that the fragrance can't help but radiate level-headedness and self-confidence through the cedar wood, that also lifts the tip of my nose when I wear the fragrance (as already written). In me the fragrance has such a strong balance that I feel myself
Grounded. Through the feeling of having found what I am looking for and through the heavenly lightness through the really well combined notes, I can only come to one conclusion.

Wearable all year round, in summer I was hunted by wasps but hey. I'd fly after anybody who smelled like that. #nosexual

Fragrance 10/10 the sky in a bottle
Sillage 7,5/10 could be better for the price, but the surprise is big if you search forever for the scent on your arm and it comes flying by again because the durability
of 8-10 hours is really good. (8.5/10)

If heaven smelled like this, I'd never sin again...

The best Creed fragrance so far. Woody, creamy and subtle, also very elegant and unique, it blends perfectly with the skin; a bit mature.

Although the name is misleading as this has little to no oud in it, the scent itself is nice. Mostly angelica with cedar, decent performance

As a woman, I believe this is TOP for a man! Better than Aventus. Reminds me of Noorolain taif (vibes & spiciness) but this is more smooth!

Fresh and peppery opening. I get a woody, slightly smoky scent from the start. The drydown is woody, spicy, resinous, sweet and a bit musky.

Royal (blue) connotations. Or what happens when you cycle past Buckingham Palace at 6.30am and you happen to have a bottle of Creed Royal Oud thrown in your backpack accidentally on purpose.
