The stalk
Thin twigs and dry leaves crackled softly as one paw after the other carefully made its way through the undergrowth. She had already scented her prey, but there was still nothing to be seen of her. So the civet froze in its movement for a moment, stretching its head and apparently trying to interpret the direction from which it heard the scent. Resuming the scent, she pushed her lithe body past gleaming white birch and gnarled balsam and eaglewood trees. The representatives of the former two gave off an intense aromatic and balsamic scent, while the eaglewood trees gave off an almost animalistic aroma. From one of the trees, or more precisely from its crown, a subliminal humming and buzzing sounded, which grew louder with every step the civet cat took closer and swelled to a wild roar. Curious, the grey-brown spotted cat stopped below the tree and watched the spectacle that presented itself to her around the hive. The fat bees were too far away and too busy bringing the collected flower nectar to their burrow to care about the curious observer. Even from so far below, the delightful scent of beeswax was still distinct, causing the cat to sniff with interest. But after only a few moments, she lost all interest and went back to following her actual trail. However, the short pause in which she watched the spectacle of the bees had deprived the civet cat of her lunch. The trail had gone cold. However, she didn't realize the realization until a few steps later, when she had already passed numerous clove trees, cardamom and patchouli bushes. In a clearing, the stalking finally ended, as it was impossible to tell in which direction the prey had taken off. Disappointed, the civet cat drew a few last circles until it rubbed its fur once more against a cedar or sandalwood tree and, to bid farewell, relieved itself against the tree with its leg raised.

Fin.

One of my favorites from the house!
Now frag community this one is for all leathery oriental and animalic oud fans out there!

It feels like a desert dream! From the dawn and cozyness of your warm tent behind big sand dunes to the night and the moon with limitless stars in the sky above you!

So profound, elegant, daring and vigorous! Lucid!

The most prominent notes here are my favorite animalic note-civet with birch, sandalwood and oud with also dry patchouli and bergamot in the warm woody heart. Just beautiful!

It lasted 7-8 hours on my skin with moderate to strong sillage.

The most beautiful of Dior.
A masterpiece ! I've had it for over a year now (and now I've treated myself to the 250 ml) --- the scent is just awesome and wonderful, leathery, soft and ANIMAL at the same time. Not as hard and rough as Gucci`s Guilty Absolute or as British as Floris Leather Oud or edgy as Acqua die Parma`s Leather or Tom Ford. Not as French as Guerlain`s Cuir intense either (although that one is nice too) . But this thing is different. Dior`s Leather Oud is --- ELEGANT --- soft, round, SEXY and ANIMALIC at the same time - Civet Age.... Civet.... --- I wear this when I'm on the prowl and on the hunt and then wake up in the morning somewhere maybe in the city with three people in a strange bed. But with whom? With her or maybe even with him ? ---- No matter ;-) Pheromones and pure lust. Great cinema and for me a fragrance of the century. ---------Merci Monsieur Francois Demachy ;-))))

Have courage!
...with a DIOR fragrance? Oh yes! Because this one is one with power, independence and courage. But from the front:

The first time I smelled the bottling, I was still a little unsure. Because for me is to be perceived next to the leather mainly the civet note. Also the oud contributes to a subtle animalic note. After I tried the fragrance several times and gave it time, I decided to buy a full bottle. Because - I take that times in advance - it is here in my eyes about the best "Maison Christian Dior" fragrance!

With the flacon I am two-split. On the one hand, I like it somehow, it looks classy, modern and simple - with a tendency to boring. The cap also looks nice and is magnetic. The entire presentation with a DIOR box, a fragrance miniature (from the designer line of Dior) as well as several samples, on the other hand, convinced entirely.

The most important thing - you guessed it - is the fragrance! This is as already mentioned in the first Eidruck bold and daring. Because while other designers "Prive" lines combine their Oud with rose or saffron and more or less boring, generic Oud fragrances bring to the market, DIOR has ventured with this fragrance in the animalic direction. Mainly responsible for this seems to me the civet note, which plays next to the players oud and leather the biggest appearance in the fragrance.
The opening strikes me as intensely leathery with a slightly spicy oud note. The civet also contributes to making the fragrance start off exceedingly unique. As the fragrance progresses it seems more linear, however the civet note fades into the background a bit for me, but remains present throughout the course. In the last breaths, before the drydown disappears, one might suspect to sense a slight musty note. However, this does not interfere and is not very intrusive.

The fragrance character certainly already suggests that the application possibilities seem rather limited. So I would use it if at all low doses in closed rooms. Because The performance is overwhelming - more about that later. The only enclosed spaces that seem made for the fragrance are clubs, bars and other institutions where you want to stand out. In short, understatement is not the fragrance's greatest strength, but if you want to stand out and are looking for a fragrance for "Ausgehe situations", then this is a great candidate.

The performance is the last chapter but no less exciting and impressive: because DIOR Heather Oud lasts on my skin 12-14 hours and has a more than present projection. So be careful not to overdo it with the sprays.

Verdict: So if you want a fragrance that is unique and amazingly special for a designer, you should sample this one and give it a try. I for my part speak in any case a clear purchase recommendation and say: Go ahead courage, because this is the best Christian Dior fragrance for me!

...And the Circus Leaves Town
A Kyuss memory trophy from a user has to be in there just for the headline, right? Fishing for Parfumo trophies in its worst way.

Leather Oud had aroused my interest through numerous comments. Some verse, some praise songs and a little something in between. The scent polarizes. I like that.

The filling is therefore preserved and, as a precaution, only sprayed onto a test strip on the balcony. One should be careful with the fragrance, they said. Then came the first shock. It actually smells quite spicy in the opening, but not unpleasant at all. Then I smelled cinnamon. And suddenly the scent gets its animalistic side, of which many people have written here. Yes, it smells a bit like a horse's saddle. And the scent has a nice portion of taste, too. No disco guy who's ever bathed in a million wears that.

But I certainly don't associate these animal accents with faeces. It doesn't smell like urine or other excrements to me. This is simply a very spicy leather scent with a distinctly animal note. And therefore it also radiates a very pleasant warmth.

Anyway, I could imagine this scent perfectly on John Garcia. Somewhere in a deserted ghost town on a tour bus. And then the circus leaves town.

Masterpiece
Stinky? Urinous? Fecal? Not really. Challenging? Absolutely! Hard to carry, that's how it is sometimes with works of art. For a while now, I've been calling the scent my own. If the bottlings probably would have lasted until the end of my life, at least a 40ml bottle would have been necessary, just as a matter of principle.
A beautiful birch tar-smoky leather scent with the right dose of salty animalism. When I spray it on, a slightly moronic grin comes over me It performs particularly well at cool temperatures in the single-digit range.
I hardly wear it in real life. I don't think it's right for the office. Maybe an outdoor scent. For the winter hike. Or just to enjoy at home. You don't need practical justification to own Leather Oud

Old Finn..
Crass number this fragrance.
This has the following phenomenon:
You either like him or you don't.
What does he smell like?
On the one hand after a cowboy on a horse in the south of the USA, Texas and at the same time somehow after a burnt cow.
On the other hand, however, this scent smells like urine, which will definitely be due to the civet.
In my opinion exactly these three fragrances or thoughts about this fragrance dominate.
For me personally just too much and after three testers over

Mesmerising!
I am absolutely mesmerised by this perfume. One of the best oud and leather combinations! Quite distinctive and effective. It slightly reminds me of Zegna's Peruvian Ambrette. Quite discreet and long-lasting at the same time. The ideal scent of elegance and affluence!

Who dances with the horse
So really rarely do I lack a thought of a fragrance or the right description. It is much rarer that a scent catapults me out of my armchair. But one of them did it and left me partly speechless. Leather Oud from Dior. A scent that you have to have experienced, that is as extreme as hardly any other.
Bois D'Argent and Ambre Nuit, on the other hand, seem like a mild breeze (which is appropriate due to their poor durability). Everything is extreme about Leather Oud, whether durability, silage or DNA. I also can hardly explain how such a differentiated scent made it into the otherwise rather shallow scent line of Dior.

You can already guess from the comments and statements in which direction the fragrance is developing, but I was surprised again how intense and different this fragrance comes across. Completely different league leather, completely different league animal spice. Even as a lover of the Civet of Zoologist I had to struggle with the first perception.

The start is already quite violently determined by cardamom and spicy woods. Cardamom is now not indefinitely one of my favourite scents in fragrances, but it could still hold out. Light leather notes, animal civet and clove are added to give the fragrance its character. Virtue really is the leathery animalism, as demanding as one can imagine. Inevitably the association comes to mind where you think you are saddling a horse, especially in the stables. Here and there a few horse droppings lie around. That's the way it smells. Bit by bit the DNA becomes a little bit softer, a little bit more supple, but does not move away from the DNA
Do you want to have this as a scent or sniff it ?

That will probably be the decisive question with this fragrance. As good as I like this extraordinary fragrance I have to say NO for me personally. Not because I do not want to sniff it, but because I would not find a suitable situation to wear this fragrance. If I would wear it, then only in cold temperatures and only spray it on my wrists. For the neck and neck region the fragrance is much too intense and persistent for me personally with its DNA.

Speaking of endurance, performance-wise the fragrance is an absolute statement. Already from the durability it overages 95 % of all fragrances while standing. We're talking about twelve hours on the skin, which it can easily hold. Even after a shower, the fragrance sticks and only appears in a weakened version. I would wear it only on the wrists because of the silage, because it radiates so much and lets its surroundings be immersed in a cloud. So for the money it is not at all disturbing and is definitely worth it.

Whoever is looking for something fierce, with a lot of leather, animalism and spice will find it. For me it is unfortunately a bit over the top and therefore not very wearable. Maybe when you are on the road for a day or alone at home

Nice thought but just thought
Leather scents by designers are often such a thing, since they are designed for the masses and are therefore often toothless, generic and simple. The only designer scent in leather that convinces me is Gucci Guilty Absolute, many others can't do the theme, can't manage the degree between mass and intensive leather. Now then Dior. Dior, a company that can't offer me much, except for Fahrenheit, which admittedly hasn't created this fragrance in the upper price segment for the normal clientele.
What has now been mixed here could cause storms of jubilation in the niche, at least with a pure look at the ingredients. Leather, oud and civet, that sounds strong. Cardamom rounds off the experience and reminds here and there of London by Tom Ford. Now, despite the best ingredients, a fragrance must always be well balanced, because with impetuous ingredients that are used without measure, it can quickly go in the wrong direction. This is what it does here, as I would now like to explain.
First of all, a torrent of cardamom flows towards the nose. Spicy, very intense, with London touches, but more one-dimensional because it is completely cardamom-heavy and dense. That's something you'll appreciate if you have a weakness for this kind of scent. Sublim now resonates with classic leather, which is clearly marked by beeswax. This makes the fragrance look a bit marzipan-like, and the leather is difficult to handle in this combination.
Fortunately, this is not permanent, so the leather gradually becomes heavier and coarser as the beeswax recedes. This is massively supported by the civet, because it is more animalistic. Now, however, it must be noted that this has been greatly reduced. This will please those who are not able to deal with extreme niche or indie. But there is the crucial question how to keep it otherwise with the fragrance.
The oud seems to me synthetic, European, toothless. It resonates, you can see it, but that's about it. Here the question arises what was the purpose of the use of the oud. In theory it was successful, practically unbalanced and hardly thought through.
For me, Leather Oud is a good idea in the beginning, but then again it is an example of fear of one's own courage. Oud does not come through reasonably, the civet seems tame and the leather smells rough after one or two hours but then also subordinate. Once it is the centre of attention, it seems uninspired. In the end we get a castrated scent that has potential but has not been consistently implemented. Presumably due to the clientele, I dare say.
So Leather Oud is a strong fragrance, but intensity is not synonymous with leveling or balance.

Initially slightly animalic spicy-floral, this smoky, yet dusty spicy-leathery Mid season fragrance settles to a dry resinous-woody base.
